SOURCE: replacing serpentine accessory belt. Is it

From my understanding I think you have to remove the motor mount and mount the engine to remove it because I have been asking different mechanics about the serpintine belt on my 1998 Buick Lasabre.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    How do i take of a pulley and tensioner of a 94 Dodge Caravan 3.0 L V6


    You'll need a Serpentine Belt Tool and a socket set.

    Rotate the Caravan's serpentine belt tensioner assembly clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt. Slip the belt off the tensioner with your free hand before rotating the tensioner back to its home position. Remove the tool.
    Extract the two mounting bolts that hold the serpentine belt tensioner assembly to the Caravan's front engine cover using your socket set. Depending on your physical size and dexterity, you may find this easier to accomplish through the top of the engine well or through the passenger-side wheel well.
    Pull the old serpentine belt tensioner assembly out of the Caravan's engine bay by hand. Place the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly on the Caravan's front engine cover and bolt it in using your socket set.
    Rotate the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly clockwise with the serpentine belt tool and then place the belt on the pulley by hand. Rotate the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly back into place. Remove the tool and close the hood.

    How do I remove the belt so I can remove the Water Pump?


    If you are referring to serpentine belt, Thisis how to do it. Lift the hood and prop it open. Find thelock nut on the serpentine belt and use a wrench to loosen it. Turn the adjustment bolt counterclockwiseto remove the serpentine belt. This bolt is located under the water pump hose.Remember how you remove the belt so that you can reroute the new beltcorrectly. Install the new serpentine belt by securingit on the pulleys in the same route as the old belt. Check the belt routing onthe underside of the hood to make sure you get it right. Create tension in the back of the belt byturning the adjustment bolt clockwise. Check that the belt is on each pulleyproperly. The belt should be centered on each pulley, not on the edge.Tightenthe lock nut to secure the serpentine belt in place.

    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,

    Replace serpantine belt 2004 malibu


    Get a 1/2" breaker bar and remove tension on belt by rotating the tensioner until belt is loose.

    Remove belt noting the under over method.

    Install new belt. The smooth pulleys have the back of the serpentine belt, and the grooved pulleys have the inside front of the serpentine belt up against it.

    In this way you can reroute any serpentine belt on the market.

    Good luck.

    Serpentine belt broke on 87 ford econo van


    ps...you do not have to Post another Question....just Add a Comment to this question.

    "HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
    Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    1. Find the Tensioner(s).
    2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley 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 an Automatic Tensioner:
    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 and 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.

    How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick LeSabre, 3.8


    My friend;
    Try this;
    1. Check the belt pulley may have attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
    2. Loose the belt pulley attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
    3. Normally there are three bolts & or nuts u need to loose to allow u swivel the pulley side way.
    4. Once loose, swivel the pulley side way.
    5. Mostly, you don't have to remove the bolts & or nuts completely.
    6. You may need to remove other serpentine belt to reach the power steering belt.
    7. Removing those other belts work same as the power steering belts or other belts.
