An engine /vehicle model with information of power steering and ac fitment would help. Basically the grooves in the belt go into the grooves of the pulley and any idlers run on the back ( flat) part of the belt. If you have grooves in the belt running over a flat idler pulley then the belt is fitted wrong.

SOURCE: Serpentine belt in a 1995 Mercury sable




I have the same car and last night my belt slipped off. The top small pulley backed it's self out. The problem is in most cars the pulleys are reverse threaded so this wont happen, in ours not so much. The pully spins loose with the turn of the belt so it has to be tightened way down. IT's a pain. Here is a diagram I found and You need a 15mm wrench, which doesn't just come in most sets. Good Luck

The book says "Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot." I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Thats one tight spring.

The tensioner pully is the one that's mounted to an arm, with a square hole to put the 3/8" drive of your ratchet into. Consult the diagram by the hood latch to identify the other pullies, i.e. power steering, a/c, alternator, that should narrow it down for you. It's basically the only pulley not directly attached to a component.

Diagram to show how to get the serpentine belt of a 2008 dodge caliber


There is a diagram in the engine compartment itself that displays belt routing and removal.

When you look at the engine and all the pulleys that the serpentine belt goes around, one of those pulleys will have a "tensioner" on it. On that "tensioner", there should be a square looking slot for you to insert a socket extension to or you may have enough room to just use the socket drive handle itself.

Rotate counter clockwise until you have relieved enough tension to slide the belt off. Reverse the procedure for re-installation.

I broke the belt on the front of the engine on the right side if you are facing the the engine and i was wondering what belt that was and how expensive it is to fix it


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked'' all different ways through the pulleys) and to be sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys. Although belt routing diagrams have been included in this section, the first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety. This will help assure that no one mistakenly cranks the engine over with your hands between the pulleys, and that the cooling fan cannot activate while servicing the belt(s). NOTE: Take a good look at the installed belt and make a note of the routing. Before removing the belt, be sure the routing matches that of the belt routing label or one of the diagrams in this book. If for some reason a diagram does not match (you may not have the original engine or it may have been modified), carefully note the changes on a piece of paper.
  2. For tensioners equipped with a 1?2 in. (13mm) square hole, insert the drive end of a large breaker bar into the hole. Use the breaker bar to pivot the tensioner away from the drive belt. For tensioners not equipped with this hole, use the proper-sized socket and breaker bar (or a large handled wrench) on the tensioner idler pulley center bolt to pivot the tensioner away from the belt. This will loosen the belt sufficiently so it can be pulled off of one or more of the pulleys. It is usually easiest to carefully pull the belt out from under the tensioner pulley itself.
  3. Once the belt is off one of the pulleys, gently pivot the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to snap back, as this could damage the tensioner's internal parts.
  4. Now finish removing the belt from the other pulleys and remove it from the engine. To install:
  5. While referring to the proper routing diagram (which you identified earlier), begin to route the belt over the pulleys, leaving whichever pulley you first released it from for last.
  6. Once the belt is mostly in place, carefully pivot the tensioner and position the belt over the final pulley. As you begin to allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt, run your hand around the pulleys and be sure the belt is properly seated in the ribs. If not, release the tension and seat the belt.
  7. Once the belt is installed, take another look at all the pulleys to double check your installation.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable, then start and run the engine to check belt operation.
  9. Once the engine has reached normal operating temperature, turn the ignition OFF and check that the belt tensioner arrow is within the proper adjustment.

I need to know how to remove an A/C compressor pulley on a 2000 Mazda B3000, in order to route a new surpentine belt.


3.0L And 4.0L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. With the vehicle in neutral, position it on a hoist.
  3. Remove the splash shield.
  4. Rotate the accessory drive belt tensioner clockwise for 2001-2004 models and counterclockwise for 2005-2006 models. Remove the belt.
  5. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Serpentine Belt
All Navajo and B Series Pick-up engines utilize one wide-ribbed V-belt to drive the engine accessories such as the water pump, alternator, air conditioner compressor, air pump, etc. Because this belt uses a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than on engines where accessories are pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment, such as the MPV. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked" all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys.

Looking for Diagram and steps for replacing timing belt on 1997 Nissan Quest GXE


This is a major job and not advised for a beginner without guidence, If your dead set on doing it yourself, make sure you have someone to fall back on if you make mistakes. I would suggest that you buy a workshop manual from a parts store and follow the instructions from there, $20 well spent. Good luck and safe driving.

2001 suburban. how to change a/c belt


2001 Suburbans generally have two belts. The primary drive belt and the A/C compressor belt. You must first remove the primary drive belt before removing the A/C belt. They are both kept in place with a tensioner. A standard 3/8 rachet will help give you the leverage to disengage the tensioner and remove the belt. Replace in reverse order.
