Tensioner bolt bottoms out on idler pulley (belt for Poly-V A/C & Idler) on 2000 Nissan Pathfinder SE


Pulleys also wear.
You've changed the belts - a workshop would then change that particular pulley, if asked to do so.

Start your engine, then put a few drops of water onto that pulley. Does the squealing noise disappear? If so, the pulley is slightly worn in the groove - and this happens to all vehicles.

Your option is to either replace that pulley or use a spray-on anti squeal compound.

How to remove idler pulley on 03 saturn vue V6


If you go to Saturn .com you will be able to locate a link with a parts diagram. This will show you the bolt that holds the idler pulley in place. You first have to put a socket and breaker bar on the pulley to remove the tension, then remove belt from tensioner pulley. Try to keep it from falling off other pulleys. There will be a belt routing diagram under the hood on the front to the left or right of the hood latch. Try using a piece of twine or wire to hold belt in place while changing idler pulley. Then remove idler pulley pivot(mounting bolt). Hope this helps, please post solved on fixya.com. So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

My idler pulley on my 96 ford explorer is grinding on the bracket that holds it in place and creating a loud grinding noise, what steps would I use to resolve it??


change the idler pulley . its held on by a bolt in the center of the pulley. the bearings are sealed so you can't grease them. but first you have to take the tension off the serpintine belt. that is also another pulley located below the idler.don't know what size bolt on a ford but use a long wrench grab the bolt on the tensioner push to the right like you were tightening it. that will release the tension on the belt. don't take the belt all the way off just off the idler pulley. change the pulley and do tha same to reinstall the serpintine belt. if the belt comes all thr way off under the hood or on the front around the top of the radiator there will be a schematic that shows you how the belt should go around everything. let me know what happens. sometimes the tensioner pulley will grind also so be sure your changing the right pulley

I have a 2000 gmc Jimmy . I'm going to change the


Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    How do you change an idler pulley on a 97 mercury grand marquis


    Using either a serpentine belt tool or a long ratchet and a socket on the tensioner pulley bolt, turn the tensioner to relieve tension and pop the belt off. Remove the idler pulley bolt and replace the idler pulley. To finish it up simply reinstall the belt.

    Changing idler pulley


    you can change it by releasing tension on the pulley arm(as if changing the belt) and then unsecuring the idler arm pulley by means of a large bolt in the center of the pulley, usually reverse threaded. Pulleys cost about 10 bucks, but good bearings don't come cheap.
