The tensioner is spring loaded, you may be able to pry it back out of the way and hold it while someone else slips the belt into place.

SOURCE: How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer

I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
good luck.

SST stands for Special Service Tool. You can usually buy these tools on line of some of them at AutoZone

You will need to use the tool to take tnesion off the belt to replace. I suggest you either take a picture or draw how the belt is routed

While it is a possibility, having the tensioner lose tension seems more probable that it locking up as the mechanics have stated. You seem to know what you are talking about, so why not try throwing a wrench on it and turning it towards the serpentine belt? Then you can see for yourself if it has seized or not. It is the small pulley that doesn't seem to power anything like your AC compressor, alternator, fan, crank, powr streering. match a wrench to the size of the bolt and turn it, if it moves take the belt off (noting how it goes) and put the new one on saving you 280 dollars.

How do you loosen the timing belt? V6 engine.


There should be a belt tensioner on that vehicle, i belive its the Hydralic Belt Tensioner, you will have to 1st loosen a 14mm nut on the belt tensioner pulley then rotate it i belive counter-clock wise to slacken the belt, then tighten that 14 mm nut to hold the tensioner back away from the belt , once you remove the belt you will have to remove the hydralic tensioner also to reset it before the new timing belt can be installed. MAKE SURE you are able to HOLD both camshafts the inner cam sprocket it spring loaded and can jump out of timing if you are not careful.
make sure when u do install the belt to rotate the engine over 2 or 3 times to make sure you have correct lineup of all the timing marks. this will insure you do not bend any valves.

I am try to replace the serpintine belt for the power steering on


This answer is for a 2003 Toyota Camry listed by the Asker under the 2001 Toyota Avalon Category

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram.

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

I have a 99 mitsubishi diamante and i broke the power steering belt how do i put it back on


Looking at the front of the engine you should see, from left to right, the PS pump, a tensioner pulley, and the crank pulley.

Loosen the 14mm fixing bolt and the 14mm fixing nut on the tensioner pulley.
On the bottom there is a 14mm adjuster bolt, loosen it to slide the pulley downward. It helps to have a swivel socket to access this bolt.
The belt goes around the outside of all 3 pulleys.

The alternator belt will need to be loosened to get the PS belt on behind it.
Between the Crankshaft pulley and the ac compressor pulley you will see another adjuster. Simply loosen the 14mm nut on the center of the pulley, then loosen the 14mm adjuster bolt sticking out the bottom to slacken the belt enough to slip it off.

Use the same adjusters to tension the belts once installed, and tighten down all fixing nuts/fixing bolts.

Be advised: If you broke your PS belt, you should verify your pump and tensioner pulley are in good shape and spin freely, and were not the cause of belt failure before putting on a new belt!

Replacing the serpentine belt on a 2003 toyota camry 2.4 engine. How do I loosen the tension on the belt? Do you have a diagram?


The arm on the tensioner (the roller which presses against the belt to give it tension) should have a hole in it for a 1/2" drive on the end of a ratchet or breaker bar.

Inserting the ratchet or breaker bar in this hole will allow you to move the arm, releasing the tension on the belt.

I dont have a diagram to run serpentine belt to a toyota camry 03


Hi

Replacing Serpentine belt on a Toyota camry 2003—


Step 1--Examine the belt placement of your Toyota Camry fan belt so that you will remember how to put it back once you have removed it. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for further information. Locate the pivot bolt on the front passenger side of the engine. Loosen the pivot bolt with a socket wrench.


Step 2--Loosen the adjustment locking bolt that is just below the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench, and then loosen the tensioner pulley to allow the belt to move free.


Step 3--Check the belt for any signs of cracking or irregular wear, so you can fix any problems that may exist with the pulleys. Remove the fan belt from the pulleys on the engine and take it out of the engine compartment.


Step 4--Wrap the new fan belt around each of the pulleys the same way it came out. When you have the belt in place, tighten the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench.


Step 5--Tighten the adjustment locking bolt and the pivot bolt with a socket wrench, and then look over the engine to check that everything is back in place.


Step 6--Turn the vehicle engine on and watch it for a few minutes to verify that everything is operating properly, then turn the engine off.


Please refer to these links for serpentine belt diagrams—

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.
