Pulley removal 91 toyota camry

I'm replacing a powersteering belt on a 91 toyota camry in that it is very difficult to get a hold of the upper bolt, that the pump swivels upon to loosen and tighten the belt. To avoid striping the upper bolt, seems prudent to remove pulley to get to it... What is the correct way to remove the pulley in order to get to the bolt above it? thanks in advance....

    Not enough room for socket and ratchet, have to use box end wrench.... What is the best way to keep the pulley from moving? If I put a steel punch through the pulley hole, there is no apparent way to turn the wrench. Not alot of home to work.... thanks in advance

    usually access with 3/8" drive socket and ratchet, 1/2" stuff is too big to get into. using 9/16 socket or 14mm to loosen bolt sometimes using short extension or swivel joint(universal joint) or if you have 3/8" drive deep sockets?

Front seal replacement

Hi No Name, The most likely place of the leakage on your car is the front crankshaft oil seal. The oil pan (sump) is fitted with silicon from a tube as the gasket. It rarely leaks unless someone has broken the seal, which is difficult and usually needs a special tool for removal. To replace it you'll need to disconnect the battery, remove the PK (Serpentine) belt and the power steering pump belt and the front engine mounting (Front of the engine but fitted onto the side of the body) Next remove the crank shaft pulley, (a difficult part of the job, made easier if the starter motor is removed and a dog tooth tool is bolted into the most suitable starter motor attachment bolt holes, the dog tooth is used to lock the flywheel while removing the crankshaft bolt holding the pulley (which is torqued to 76 nm when re-fitting. Use a puller to remove the pulley from the crankshaft and then remove the ten mm bolts holding the two parts of the timing belt cover. Set the engine to T.D.C (Top Dead Center) and look for the match marks for re-timing the engine when refitting the timing belt. Once alignment has been achieved release the bolt holding the tensioner bearing and push it all the way open, releasing all tension from the timing belt and remove the timing belt. The oil seal can now be removed from its housing. Fit a replacement oil seal smearing a light coating of grease on the seal lip. Press evenly into place, making sure of an even flush fit. Replace the timing belt with a new belt, Re-align the belt so that the match marks align precisely to those on the gears by fitting and adjusting on the straight side of the belt. Once correctly fitted, gently release the tensioner bearing until it comes into full contact with the belt and hand tighten the fixing bolt and then loosen half one turn. Remove the dog tooth tool. Screw in the crankshaft pulley bolt and apply enough force to take up slack and tighten the tensioner. Remove the crankshaft bolt and then reassemble opposite to disassembly. Remember to refit the dog tooth for re-tightening the crankshaft bolt.

    • 15Install the pulleys in this order: crankshaft, water pump, left camshaft, No. 2 idler, right camshaft and No. 1 idler.
    • 16Compress the tensioner until the pushrod's holes and housing align. Connect the dust boot to the tensioner then tauten the tensioner's bolts to 20 foot pounds (27 Nm).
    • 17Rotate the crankshaft to the right and line up its timing pulley groove with the oil pump. The camshaft timing marks and those on the rear timing belt cover should match up.
    • 18Put in the timing belt guide and secure the bolts to 21 foot pounds (28 Nm).
    • 19Secure the upper timing belt cover to 74 inch pounds (8 Nm).
    • 20Reinstall the engine wire protector and clamp to the timing belt cover. Replace the lower timing belt cover and secure the bolts to 74 inch pounds (8 Nm).
    • 21Reconnect any remaining items. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly.

    I dont have a diagram to run serpentine belt to a toyota camry 03


    Replacing Serpentine belt on a Toyota camry 2003—

    Step 1--Examine the belt placement of your Toyota Camry fan belt so that you will remember how to put it back once you have removed it. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for further information. Locate the pivot bolt on the front passenger side of the engine. Loosen the pivot bolt with a socket wrench.

    Step 2--Loosen the adjustment locking bolt that is just below the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench, and then loosen the tensioner pulley to allow the belt to move free.

    Step 3--Check the belt for any signs of cracking or irregular wear, so you can fix any problems that may exist with the pulleys. Remove the fan belt from the pulleys on the engine and take it out of the engine compartment.

    Step 4--Wrap the new fan belt around each of the pulleys the same way it came out. When you have the belt in place, tighten the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench.

    Step 5--Tighten the adjustment locking bolt and the pivot bolt with a socket wrench, and then look over the engine to check that everything is back in place.

    Step 6--Turn the vehicle engine on and watch it for a few minutes to verify that everything is operating properly, then turn the engine off.
