There is a bolt next to it to remove the whole thing,but,if you just need to put a belt on,then put a wrench on the bolt head in the middle of the tensionner and push it down to move the tensionner

My serpentine belt broke on my chrysler 300 yr 2005 eng 3.5 i was told air compresser seized is there any way i can fix it without replacing compresser


You might be able to use a shorter belt and not go around compressor pulley. Use a length of string to get a rough idea of what belt you need.

How do I relieve tenstion on 2005 Sebring belt tensioner?


Find the appropriate socket for the bolt along the tensioner pulley and attach it to the 3/8-inch ratchet handle. Place the socket head over the bolt on the tensioner pulley and push it in the direction indicated on the configuration chart on the hood of the vehicle to loosen the tension on the serpentine belt. Take the flat-head screwdriver to remove the serpentine belt from the tensioner pulley.

How to change serpentine belt on a 2005 chrysler town and country. Is a special wrench needed for the tensioner?


There is a youtube video that shows how to change the serpentine belt/tensioner/idler, but on my 2005, the tensioner looks OEM and doe snot have a squared off end to easily use a wrench to turn.

I think I have a sepentine tool (flat with square 3/8's drive) I can use to turn the tensioner.

Ho is the power steering belt on 2002 chrysler


Click on the following direct Link. It has the Belt Diagrams you will need, complete with Removal Diagrams and Directions. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.

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

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

How do I asjust the serpentine belt on a 2005 ford freestar?


It should not require any adjustment. the right tension is provided by the idler pully. If you want to release the tension for serpentine removal or examination release the tension on the idler pulley in the rear of the motor, spin the nut in the center like you were tightening, and the pressure will be released from the serpentine belt. Reversely, the appropriate tension will be given using the same way when the strap is reinstalled.

Describe your 2005 Chevrolet Optra Problem How to change serpentine belt tensioner?


Remove the air filter housing and air hose. Set aside
Pull the 15mm bolt on the tensioner counterclockwise (towards front of car) and hold it there to loosen tension, and remove the serpentine belt.
With your 15mm wrench, unbolt the belt tensioner and remove.
Replace with new tensioner
Put serpentine belt back on.
Very easy! Be careful when releasing tension, becase if you let go of the wrench it will fly back and could hurt you.
