You need to loosen the alternator so the belts become slack. Look for bolts on top and bottom that attach the alternator to a bracket or the engine block. Loosen them and the alternator will move. Since the belts hook to other accessories, you may need to loosen them too. To get them back and the proper tension, you'll need a large screwdriver or pry bar to put tension on them as you tighten the bolts. I suggest you get a Haynes guide for this model that will have photos showing how this is done.

SOURCE: Serpentine belt too tight to install

I had the same problem when trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2001 Trooper. The Maintenance book was very vague and I couldn't tell exactly how the tension was taken off the belt, but it did clearly identify the tensioner pulley. I first removed the pulley and looked for some kind of slot that would give me the adjustment I needed, but no slotted adjustment is present on the 01 Trooper. I had to do some research so I pulled of the tensioner assembly and found that there is a spring coil which keeps tension on the belt constant, and eliminates any belt alignment problems.

The Litens style tensioner uses a spring to apply pressure towards the serpentine belt. The way to relax the spring is to use your 14mm socket and ratchet and force the pulley down by driving the pulley nut in the clockwise direction. This forces the spring to compress and the pulley to drop giving the needed clearance to get your new belt in place.

How do i loosen belt on a 4.8 liter motor

There is a belt tensioner on all 4.8L v-8 engines...basically an arm that is spring loaded to hold the proper tension on the belt at all times without needing can buy a cheap tool set (or rent one free) at Auto Zone or most auto parts stores to do this. Attach the belt tensioning tool, pull back to release tension, and slip the belt off the pulleys...just remember to take a picture of the setup before you take it off, so you can remember how it winds back on when you buy the new one

How do you let the tenion off the pulley

undo the nut of the shaft that the pulley is on There should be a long bolt behind the pulley assemble the you can turn and it pulls/pushes the pulley shaft to loosen /tighten the belt. Some have a small gear that you can turn which does the same thing. Just loosen the shaft nut first and make sure you re-tension when finished.

Just replaced the timing belt on a 1993 Honda civic. 1.6 liter. The timing belt seems to have some slack in it. How do I tighten it?

Tighten the timing belt adjuster bolt and tensioner pivot bolt. the center bolt should allow it to slide thus tightening or loosening the slack. Some even come with a spring on one side might want to check if its worn out.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3

Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    Identify the belt tensioner pulley on 1998 Ford Windstar 3.8 L

    there is a tensioner that normally holds the belt in place there should be a diagram under the hood showing how the belt goes back on normally it is a 3/8 socket or 1/2 inch socket you use on the tensioner to release the pressure once you put the belt back on and everything is in place and the belt tensioner is working all you have to do is start up the car and the belt tensioner adjusts itself
