SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

there is usually a tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. With the correct size wrench you would turn the pulley either cw or ccw (in turning the bolt in the middle of the pulley it will not loosen the bolt but actually relieve spring tension)to release tension on the belt and then remove the belt. be sure to note how it is routed around all the pulleys so it goes back on correctly. keep in mind i don't know what your car looks like but i have never seen a different procedure. i always buy a chiltons manual when i get a car so i have a handy referance for such jobs

SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt

You sent the additional question in the Solution portion of the other original posting...I just happened to stumble upon it when you rated me a "2" out of "4" on the original Posting/Question. A "2" is not good for my 94% Rating!
As far as step-by-step:
The Tensioner Pulleys have two (2) types:
1. If it has an Adjustment Nut located near it: Loosen (counterclockwise) the nut. You will see the Pulley and Belt moving, loosening the belt.
2. The other type of Tensioner is an Automatic Tensioner. The standard rule with these is to move the Tensioner Pulley (it has a strong spring keeping it in place) in the direction of:
(a) Away from the Belt (contact with the Pulley portion).
(b) Towards the open area of the Pulley = towards the direction where the Belt is not iin contact with the Pulley.

Again: Let me know if this helped you, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com! And please don't use a "2". And yes you may change your original Rating from 2 to 4 if you wish....

SOURCE: How do change the serpentine belt on a 2005 Kia

There is a tensioner pulley that has a nut in the middle of it, loosen that nut and there is a tensioner bolt that when you loosen it, it slides the pulley away from the belt to replace it.

I need to find out what size serpentine belt to get to bypass ac compressor for 2005 mercury sable v6


I believe they may make a different idler bracket to compensate for the change. You need a certain belt length for the Alternator and water pump to work properly at a given engine rpm. If you change the belt length, the alternator and water pump will turn either slower or faster than designed.

Driving my 92 525i bmw on freeway when it all broke loose my Power Steering and then all the lights on dash when on. Also the car over heated. What could have happen?


Serpentine belt broke. A serpentine belt drive runs everything: power steering, ac, alternator (electrical power), and the water pump (explains the overheating). I'd bet anything that your belt broke.

My KIA Rio 2003 alternator driving belt broke and got lost at night. I have no identification details for it. I want to buy an new replacement locally may I have the part number? Does 4PK865 WORK FOR ME?


Go to AutoZone or Napa Auto Parts with the Make Model Year of your car and the ENGINE size. They will ask you with our without AC? With or without Power Steering? Standard or Automatic transmission? Then they will tell you exactly what belt Alternator you need. Everything is computerized and they will even show you the on screen picture if you ask.

This is what I can gather about your belt:

Power steering and air-conditioning;
35.5 in. effective L, 0.54 in. top W, 4 ribs;

Water pump and alternator there is 1 size and appears to be a "Micro V-belt vs a serpentine belt. i.e 2003 Kia Rio, sub models: RX-V, Base and Cinco

How do you replace the alternator belt on a 2003 Kia Rio? The belt just broke and the only idiot light that's lit is the battery light, so it probaly isn't the serpentine belt.


undo the alternator bolts and swing it inwards towards the block,replace the belt and lever the alt away from the block to tension it (1/2"play on longest stretch between pulleys) use ring spanners.(wrenches)

Replacing main belt on chevy truck 4.8 engine


remove the belt to ac compressor.take your serpentine belt go around crank pulley goes around power steering pump goes around alternator and the tensioner on the far left. the water pump on the out side and the top idler pulley out side. the belt drives them from the out side. then you put your ac compressor belt back on.

Does the serpentine belt need somekind of lubricant?


Belt is getting hot, because it might be loose or one of the components (AC, water pump, alternator etc) has trouble with rotation (getting stuck). In most common case it is alternator.
If you are handy with that you need to remove the belt and rotate the alternator, water pump, ac pulleys and see which one has problem with rotation. Also you can check for free at Autozone if alternator giving enough charge.

Libricants are prohibited to use, belt will be slippering and wont rotate the pulleys for AC, water pump, alternator.

For tension serpentine belt can be checked by twisting it, it should not twist more then 90 degree, or by pushing, no more the 1/4 inch freedom then you push it
Good Luck
