For a 94 Jeep grand cherokee, the tension is controlled through a long bolt on the power steering bracket. The bolt is about 6 inches long, located underneath the power steering on the driver side. Lossen the lockbolt holding it in place, as well as the Power steering attach bolts, and turn the long bolt to tighten/loosen. I believe these are all 13 mm bolts.

There is a tensioner pulley that you can either push down or pull up. It does not loosen.

SOURCE: how do you loosen the serpentine belt

That wasn't right though. There is a 1/2 slot for a 1/2 inch breaker bar and when two holes are lined up you stick a drill bit or similar peice through to lock it in place till you get the belt routed then pull back alittle bit on the breaker bar to remove tension from the drill bit . Remove the drill bit and release tension on breaker bar and remove it to put tension on the belt.Then check alignment , positioning, routing of the belt visually.

SOURCE: Serpentine belt too tight to install

I had the same problem when trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2001 Trooper. The Maintenance book was very vague and I couldn't tell exactly how the tension was taken off the belt, but it did clearly identify the tensioner pulley. I first removed the pulley and looked for some kind of slot that would give me the adjustment I needed, but no slotted adjustment is present on the 01 Trooper. I had to do some research so I pulled of the tensioner assembly and found that there is a spring coil which keeps tension on the belt constant, and eliminates any belt alignment problems.

The Litens style tensioner uses a spring to apply pressure towards the serpentine belt. The way to relax the spring is to use your 14mm socket and ratchet and force the pulley down by driving the pulley nut in the clockwise direction. This forces the spring to compress and the pulley to drop giving the needed clearance to get your new belt in place.

SOURCE: Cannot find the tensioner pulley to put my alternator back on

The smooth rounded tensioner pulley has a 1/2 inch drive recessed ratchet drive fitting in the outer side of it. Reach down and feel it with your fingers and insert the ratchet drive into it. Look around the underside of the hood and engine bay for a small diagram showing the belt, pulleys and tensioner.

This pulley is either a slider or a spring loaded pulley. If it is a slider, there will be one or two bolts with "slide" areas that the bolt can move through, and possibly a third bolt that controls the tension. If it is a spring loader, there will be a pulley that looks like it is on a lever. There will be a "bolt" type head, a hole for a ratchet, or a square area on the end of the lever to twist it away from the belt. If it is one of these, the belt tensioner will move relatively easy.

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.

    How do I Change the alternator belt on my mazda?


    IF IT IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE OTHER BELTS, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS UNBOLT THE TOP OF THE ALTERNATOR, AND PUSH IT IN TO LOOSEN THE BELT FOR REMOVAL! IF IT IS IN BACK OF THE BELTS (ESPECIALLY A SERPENTINE BELT) YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT FIRST! THERE WILL BE A TENSION PULLEY HOLDING THE BELT TIGHT! YOU'LL NEED TO USE A WRENCH TO PULL THE TENSION PULLEY TOWARD YOU TO LOOSEN BELT! WATCH HOW YOU REMOVE IT, BCUS YOU'LL NEED TO PUT IT BACK ON THE SAME WAY! THEN REMOVE, AND REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR BELT AS BEFORE, THEN REPLACE THE SERPENTINE BELT!

    How to put on serpentine belt


    Hi,

    The tools required are:
    1/2-inch drive ratchet
    2 - 1/2-inch drive 8-inch extensions
    1/2-inch drive socket set

    Please follow these steps to replace the serpentine belt on your 1999 Chrysler 300M:

    1. Open the hood and prop it in place.

    2. Locate the serpentine belt adjustable idler pulley on the front of the engine. This adjustable idler pulley will be closest to the top of the engine. Position a metric socket onto the ratchet and loosen the bolt in the center of the serpentine belt idler pulley.

    3. Now please loosen the push bolt on the side of the idler pulley. It is a 15mm size and the push bolt on the side of the tensioner is 13mm. Pull off the old belt.

    4. Loosen the tensioner pulley for the AC belt. The same steps need to be followed for this as well.

    5. Next slip the AC belt on the back of the crank pulley and route it as per the diagram under the hood.

    6. Now you need to tighten up the idler pully and the push bolt until the belt play is within factory specifications, then tighten the hub bolt in the center of the pulley as well.

    7. The same thing needs to be done for the serpentine belt as well. Just ensure that you tighten up the bolts and have the specified play in the belt. Check the belt tension by pushing inward on the belt.

    8. Crank the vehicle for about 15-20 seconds. Then turn it off and again check the tension in the belt. Adjust as necessary. You need to have about half an inch of play in the belt.

    If this doesn't work for you or in case you need any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

    I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
    Thank you.

    Change serpentine belt on 06 sienna


    1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
    2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
    3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
    4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
    5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
    6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
    7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
    8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
    Thank you and good luck,

    A diagram for a 1999 Mercury Tracer serpentine belt to replace it


    A person doesn't need a diagram to replace a serpentine belt.

    Simply thread the belt around the pulleys alternating between smooth pulley to back of the belt, and the grooved pulleys to the inside of the belt, until the last pulley is the tensioner pulley, which is loosened using a breaker bar.

    It really is that simple.

    How do you replace a serpentine belt on a 2005 3.5 liter Kia Sedona


    Click on the following free, direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagrams you will need.

    http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2005/make/kia/model/sedona/2005_kia_sedona_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

    On the Serpentine Belt: Scroll down the Link Page to Diagram G00323207, it shows the Tensioner.
    1. Loosen the Pulley Lock Nut - identified as "A"
    2. Loosen the Adjustment Bolt - identified as "B"
    3. The Tensioner Pulley should move up and slightly to the left, loosening the belt enough to remove.

    Installation is the reverse of the above.
    Note on Diagram G00323206 the deflection tolerance at the 22 lbs pressure on the belt.

    Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

    AC belt on 1999 Chrysler 300M


    When you replace the AC belt you really should replace the serpentine belt as well, since you will have to take it off already. If you don't do it now it is inevitable that you will have to replace it in like 3 weeks anyway : )

    You need to first remove the serpentine belt by loosening the nut in the center of the idler pulley. After that you will need to loosen the push bolt on the side of the idler pulley. The hub bolt is a 15mm size and the push bolt on the side of the tensioner is a 13mm I think. After you loosen it sufficiently, you will need to pull off the old belt.

    Next you will need to loosen the tensioner pulley for the AC belt as well. It is the same process. The main issue is space. You will most likely need to raise your car to get at the right angles to loosen these pulleys.

    Once you loosen the idler pulley in the same manner as you loosened the other, you can slip the AC belt onto the back of the crank pulley and route it as the diagram under your hood instructs you. Next tighten up the idler pully in the opposite way as you loosend it...tighten up the push bolt until the belt play is within factory specifications, then tighten the hub bolt in the center of the pulley. Do the same for the serpentine belt and you should be up and running in no time. I just performed these tasks on my 2000 300m and I wish someone would have told me this before I started my project. Hope this helps, Good Luck!
