Question about GMC Envoy
Here is how you replace it:
1) Take the belt of be releasing tension on the tension pully and slipping the belt off the alternator pully (no need to take belt completely off)
2) remove the center bolt on the pully and the pully will come right off
3) Bolt new pully on
4) Replace belt onto alternator pulley and make sure that it is riding correctly on all the other pulleys.
5) Release tentioner pully
You are ready to go! Takes about 15 minutes.
As far as tools go, you will definitely need a ratchet and possibly either hex socket or allen wrench (depending on what the center bolt is) Here is also a link to a video that shows you how to do this. In this video the engine is out of the car but it is obviously the same thing just inside the engine compartment. Note in the video how it shows you how to tell if the tensioner is set correctly. Just make sure you've done that and you are good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions. this should be an easy fix for you. Thanks for using FixYa!
