SOURCE: tension pulley

It's a normal bolt, righty tighty lefty loosey. Try some DB Blaster and let it soak. Another thick is to tap the head of the bolt from side to side so as to loosen the rust. Good luck.

If you can remove the bolt remnant without damaging the parent metal, you should be able to reinstall the tensioner. Get a new bolt directly from Ford so that you are sure you have the correct length, thread pitch, and hardness. If you are not very experienced in removing broken bolts, you may want to seek some help with this.

How to replace fan belt on a Mitsubishi pajero


Instructions
  1. 1 Open the bonnet of the Pajero, and turn the bolt on the centre of the tension pulley with a socket wrench two full rotations. The tension pulley is the pulley directly behind the fan in the upper portion of the front of the engine.
  2. 2 Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tension pulley bracket. This bolt is on the left-hand side, situated in a long horizontal groove.
  3. 3 Slip the fan belt off of the engine. Draw a diagram of the path of the fan belt if the factory printed sticker diagram is no longer in the front of your engine on your Pajero.
  4. 4 Insert the new fan belt, winding it through the various pulleys according to your diagram. Put it on the tensioner pulley last.
  5. 5 Place the tension belt tool on the tension pulley bolt and pull until the slack in the belt is gone. When there is no slack, keep the pressure on the pulley, and tighten the adjuster bolt with the wrench. Tighten the lock bolt on the pulley.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Engine starts fine, belts don't move


    Hi, it sounds like your harmonic balancer has separated from the crankshaft pulley. There is a rubber cylinder between the pulley and core that bolts to the crankshaft. If you can see the crankshaft turning inside the pulley, replace the balancer. If the crankshaft bolt is turning, your key may have sheared off--that would be very unusual. In either case, you will have to remove the balancer. You will likely need a balancer puller to get it off. Remove the belts and find a way to lock the crankshaft in order to loosen the bolt. If you have a manual transmission, put it in the high gear and set the brake to lock the engine. If you have an automatic, you have have to pull the starter and jam a screwdriver in the flexplate teeth. Once you have the bolt loose, use a puller to remove the balancer. At this point, it may come apart, depending on the type of puller you use. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    How to install serpentine belt 1988 ford 150


    Loosen the lock bolt on the upper part of the tensioner(arrowed in black). Release tension on the belt at the tensioner(arrowed in red) by turning counter clockwise on the pulley nut as indicated in blue.
    Slip the belt off the pulleys while keeping pressure on the tensioner. Refit the new belt and make sure it is properly located on all the pulleys before releasing pressure on the tensioner. Tighten the lock bolt.
    The tensioner is self adjusting you just need to make sure the belt is properly seated on all the pulleys before tightening the lock bolt.
    The exact position of the tensioner varies on the different engines but the routing is the same and it is always between the alternator and power steering pulleys on the gas engines.

    I'm replacing the radiator on 1997 mercedes E420 and while I have it out it looks like surpentine belt would be easy to change just not sure how to do it ?


    It has a spring loaded belt tensioner. There are 2 different styles. One has an e12 bolt on the pulley (a 10mm 12pt closed end wrench will work) the other has a 15 mm. bolt on the tensioner pulley. Just turn the bolt( i think to the right ) and it will collapse the spring enough to get the belt off. You can put a pin through the bottom of the tensioner to keep it collapsed if you need to replace the tensioner. If there is a plastic cover on the pulley just pop it off to gain access to the bolt. Good luck-I think some after marked tensioner pulleys may have a t40 style bolt but either way they all work the same.

    Timing belt slak


    1. Set timing belt tensioner.
    (a) Using a press, slowly press in the push rod using 100 - 1000 kg (220 - 2,205 lb, 981 - 9,807 N) of pressure. (b) Align the holes of the push rod and housing, pass a 1.27 mm hexagon wrench through the holes to keep the setting position of the push rod. (c) Release the press.
    1. Install timing belt tensioner.


    (a) Turn the No.1 idler pulley bolt counterclockwise to obtain the specified torque toward the left as far as the No.1 idler pulley will go, and temporarily install the tensioner with the two bolts Torque: 18 N.m (180 kgf.cm, 13 ft.lbf)


    NOTICE: To apply the correct torque, apply the torque wrench along the axis through the bolts of the No.1 idler pulley and exhaust camshaft timing pulley.


    (b) Slowly turn the crankshaft pulley 5/6 revolution, and align its groove with the ATDC 60° mark of the No.1 timing belt cover.
    NOTICE: Always turn the crankshaft clockwise.





    (c) Insert a 1.90 mm (0.075 in.) feeler gauge between the tensioner body and No.1 idler pulley stopper.
    (d) Turn the No.1 idler pulley bolt counterclockwise to obtain the specified torque.
    Torque: 18 N.m (180 kgf.cm, 13 ft.lbf)
    NOTICE: To apply the correct torque, apply the torque wrench along the axis through the bolts of the No.1 idler pulley and exhaust camshaft timing pulley.

    (e) While pushing the tensioner, alternately tighten the two bolts. Torque: 21 N.m (210 kgf.cm, 15 ft.lbf)



    (f) Remove the 1.90 mm (0.075 in.) feeler gauge. (g) Remove the 1.27 mm hexagon wrench from the tensioner.


    (h) Slowly turn the crankshaft pulley one revolution, and align its groove with theATDC 60° mark of the No.1 timing belt cover.
    NOTICE: Always turn the crankshaft clockwise.




    (i) Using a feeler gauge, check the specified clearance between the tensioner body and No.1 idler pulley stopper. If the clearance is not as specified, remove the tensioner and reinstall it.
    Clearance: 1.80-2.20 mm (0.071 - 0.087 in.)
    1. Check valve timing.



    (a) Slowly turn the crankshaft pulley two revolutions from TDC to TDC. NOTICE: Always turn the crankshaft clockwise.




    (b) Check that each pulley aligns with the timing marks as shown in the illustration. If the marks do not align, remove the timing belt and reinstall it.
