There is a tensioner that belt goes around, using a ratchet or breaker bar, put into square hole in front of tensioner, then push to the side that will loosen belt, then hold and remove belt. Do the same to replace belt.

Hi...

use a 15mm wrench on the face of the pulley and a 15mm socket with a swivel behind the bracket holding the pulley. You will be very close to the coolant temp sensor so be careful. loosen the bolt and the belt will fall off

to replace the loosened belt to normal position do the following......

Route the belt as it was and tighten in the reverse of what you did to remove it. A new belt may require the tension er to be slackened off even more to get it on. Belt routing diagram should be on the radiator.


if you are satisfied with my solution then rate for me....thank you for using fixya.....

Where do i release the tention on the serpent belt so i can put the alternator belt on?


What you are lookin for on the engine is something called an Idler pulley or a belt tensioner pulley. Not being familiar with the configuration of the model you described, if the engine is side mounted the pulley will be on the passenger side under the belt. The belt will actually be wrapped around the tensioner. What you have to find out is which pulley it is. It will be a smaller pulley and the belt will be in contact with this pulley. It has no other use the to cause tension for the belt. Probably a 11-13mm wrench.

I am trying to replace the serpentine belt on a 2001 Chevy Tracker and I need a detailed diagram to tell me how to identify the tention wheel and what I need to do in order to release the tention wheel and...


The ventures serpentine belt can be removed and replaced by releasing pressure on the tensioner. Just take your large socket wrench and insert the square head into the square slot on the tensioner and use it to release tension on the belt.

How do you loosen the tensinor to replace surpintine belt


Use a tensioner pulley kit (or a 1/2" breaker bar if equipped with a 1/2" square hole) to release tension on the belt by rotating the tensioner until tension is released on the belt. properly.

Some tensioners don't have a square hole to put a breaker bar, but must be turned at the pulley's stationary hex bolt.

Good luck on replacing the serpentine belt.

Surpintine belt diagram


Two places of information. One is under the hood, usually form on the engine. A small white diagram that will show the proper routing for the serptine belt.

Second. Purchase a auto repair manuel at the parts store and it will show the routing the serpetine belt. If you do not have the correct routing you will never get the belt on.
