Your first problem is to extract the bolt. For that, you will need an extraction tool. I got mine at NAPA.

Once you have the bolt out, you can measure the size and pitch.

Hi maroon,

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator. Double check your routing.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

SOURCE: pulley wont turn

I believe the pulley below that is for you A/C compressor, which also has a clutch on it that will only turn when the ac is turned on, but the inside pulley should always spin. If the ac clutch doesn't turn on with the ac turned on then you may need to get it spaced. any more questions just email me on this site.

SOURCE: The serpentine belt broke on my 2004 Toyota Camry

I typed your vehicle into google and tried to find a diagram. I didn't have much luck. I know some of the auto parts stores have a book that shows the routing of the belt on most vehicles, maybe they can help. If you do find a diagram take a magic marker and draw a copy of it under the hood somewhere. Sorry I can't be more help, Happy New Year!!

Need timing belt diagram for a 2003 tiburon gt v6 2.7 liter


The timing belt diagrams are listed in detail with figures and procedure to remove them.

REPLACING TIMING BELT ON A 2003 HYUNDAI TIBURON 2.7L V6

1. Remove passenger side headlight via the 3 10mm screws holding it in place and disconnect the turn signal and main harness

2. Remove passenger side tire

3. Remove the splash guard via 2 10mm screws at the top of the guard

4. Remove the 2 17mm bolts and 2 17mm nuts from motor mount bar

5. You may have to separate the mount bar from the motor via either a chisel or flathead screwdriver and a hammer ( support engine via a jack and a piece of plywood under oil pan )

6. Use a 3/8 ratchet ( or a long breaker bar would work better ) to remove the serpentine belt ( remember the route ). Disconnect the power steering hose from the pump and secure back with a zip tie. Remove the power steering pulley with a pry bar and 19mm socket.

7. Hand turn the crankshaft via a 22mm socket to TDC ( top dead center, marked on lower timing belt cover )

8. Remove the serpentine belt tensioner via 2 12mm bolts on each side

9. Remove the upper timing belt cover via 7 10mm screws

10. Remove crankshaft pulley ( 22mm ) with an air impact gun ( an electric one will work too )

11. Remove lower timing belt cover via 4 more 10mm screws



tinualbinale_3.gif

12. Remove the motor mount from the block via 3 14mm bolts and 2 12mm bolts ( there is a 12mm holding the oil dipstick bracket towards the front of the car )

13. Remove the auto tensioner via 2 12mm bolts

tinualbinale_4.gif

14. Remove the timing belt
tinualbinale_5.gif

15. Make sure your timing markings are correct...

There is one marking on each cam gear and on the heads ( head markings are small, look closely...try wiping the edge of the head down with a rag and some brake cleaner to bring it out more ) They are also pictured in last pic.

When the crankshaft is in the TDC position, the cam gear markings should both line up at the same time with the head markings

Adjust if necessary, use a 17mm socket to turn cam gears to correct position

16. Install new timing belt ( as you install it, make sure to keep a little tension on the belt as you route it )

17. Install new auto tensioner and pull pin

18. Install just the lower timing belt cover

19. Install the crankshaft pulley

20. Hand turn the crankshaft atleast 5 times to verify the timing markings are lining up properly ( all should line up at the same time when the crankshaft pulley mark is in the TDC position )

21. Remove crankshaft pulley

22. Remove lower timing belt cover

23. Reverse steps 12 - 1

Dont know how to loosen or tighten the belt im trying to put on my car. the belt is connecting the alternator to the waterpump


You need to loosen the bolts that attach the alternator to the engine. Just loosen then a turn or so, don't remove them. Then there should be a long 10 or 12mm bolt attached to a bracket being held by one of those bolts attaching the alternator. One direction loosens while the other tightens the belt. When it is where you want it, retighten the alternator bolts and test.

Replaced engine belt on 1999 saab 9.5 old belt broke thought their would an adjustable that i could move to get new belt on then tighten it back up


These should have a belt tensioner pulley........It is designed to be pushed up or down to slide the belt over the pulley that is mounted to the tensioner.....Normally the tensioner will have a square slot in it to put a 3/8 or a 1/2 in ratchet head into it and move it up or down.....Some tensioners are designed to put a socket or wrench on the pully bolt head..then push tensioner in tightening position to flex tensioner and slide belt over pulley.....It has to be one or the other......Just look very closely at the pulleys...Some tensioners have an arrow on the side of it showing which direction to push it to re-install the belt....It is mounted sperately by itself....It is called Serpentine Belt Tensioner .......................................It is self adjusted...It is flexed up and down very fast while it is running and if it ever gets loose from age you just replace it.......There is no nut and bolt adjustment for a serpentine belt..................Hope this helps.....................................Metalpoet

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.

How do i adjust a serpentine belt on a 96 jeep cherokee


You don't. If the belt looks frayed or otherwise damaged you replace it. There is however a belt tensioner which kind of automatically applies tension to the belt which removes the need to adjust belts like the old v belts with the adjustor brackets. You shouldn't have more than 1/2 to 1" or belt play otherwise if so your tensioner may be going out and need to be replaced.

Belt


there is a tensioner on that. it will take i think a 14mm or a 15 mm and the 12mm for the bolt that tightens the belt after its kinda tight not real tight then use the 14 or 15 mm to snug down the tensioner nut .
