Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
I put a new serpentine belt on my 4.0 liter 2006 Tacoma. After driving it over the weekend I noticed that the smoooth side of the belt now has grooves worn in it. These grooves to not resemble the grooves that are on some of the pulleys. Any idea where this belt may be rubbing?
It sounds like a seized or a seizing pulley. Did you replace the tensioner pulley along with the belt? Replacing the two at the same time is SOP. The tensioner is the only unit in contact with the smooth side of the belt.

On my 2005 Tacoma with the 4.0L V6, I found it easier to change the belt from under the truck. Just remove the skid pan. Plenty of room to install the belt. The tensioner pulley is the one at about 2-o'clock from the crankshaft with the belt nearly all the way around it.
