SOURCE: I've never done a belt with a tension pulley, believe or not. How do i release this tension? 96 Ford contour automatic 2.0

I cannot tell from the photo exactly, but the tensioner is either the pulley between the water pump and alternator or the one between the alternator an the power steering pump. The tensioner is a spring-loaded device that puts an upward (or downward) pressure on the belt to take up the slack. Here is a picture of the tensioner for your car....



26001823-2qxw3km0vcnqu3setvnduoab-2-0.jpg You need to find a wrench (or socket) to fit that will fit the bolt in the center of the pulley. Attach the socket wrench to the bolt and apply rotational pressure in the direction that will pull the pulley away from the belt. This will remove the tension from the belt. Then take the belt off. Route the new belt in accordance with the diagram. Ensure that you do it correctly, because improper installation can sometimes be done and this can cause some pulleys to rotate the wrong direction which can cause damage. Typically, if the pulley has grooves in it, the ribbed side of the belt will run on it and if it is smooth, the back side of the belt will run on it. Once you have the belt on all the accessory pulleys, the release the tensioner pulley to allow it to take up the slack and inspect for proper operation and routing.

MY BELTS SNAPPED AND BENT PULLEY IS IT TENSIONER OR PULLEY NEEDS REPLACING


Kind of a vague question here. I am assuming you are speaking of the pulley that is attached to the tensioner is bent. Either way I would suggest in replacing the tensioner. They have just he pulley you can take off your tensioner and rebuild it, but it is easier for the cost, and as a point of preventive maintnace to replace the entire tensioner, for the entire tensioner either 4 cyl or 6 is around 96$

Fig. 7: Typical power steering pump hose routing-1996 shown


The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J-29785-A (1985-92), Puller J-25034-B (1993-96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
  2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
  3. For 1993-96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
  4. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
  5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
  7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
WARNING Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
  1. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
  2. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
  1. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
  2. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
  3. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment.
  4. For 1993-96 vehicles install the upper fan shroud and the hood latch assembly.
  5. For 1996 vehicles, install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the power steering reservoir and bleed the power steering system.
  8. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  9. Road test the vehicle, then check and top-off the power steering fluid.

hope this help (remember rated this post) Good luck.

How to remove and replace a serpentine belt 96 saturn


Click on the following free, direct Link. It has all the Serpentine Belt Diagrams you will need for the 1.9L 4-Cylinder Engine and various Engine Options (AC/No AC etc.), complete with Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1996/make/saturn/model/sl/1996_saturn_sl_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

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

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic 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 an Automatic Tensioner:
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.

HOW TO CHANGE DRIVE BELT ON MY 98 GMC SONOMA 4 CYLINDER


it may be easier to attach the breaker bar to the tensioner arm from under the vehicle to relieve belt tension

a281459.gif
a35a276.gif
  1. On 1994-97 2.2L engines and 1994-96 4.3L engines, using a 1/2 in. breaker bar and if necessary, with a socket placed on the tensioner pulley bolt, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the belt tension. On some 2.2L engines it may be easier to attach the breaker bar to the tensioner arm from under the vehicle.
  2. On 1998-99 2.2L engines and 1997-99 4.3L engines, using a 3/8 in. breaker bar, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve the belt tension. On some 2.2L engines it may be easier to attach the breaker bar to the tensioner arm from under the vehicle.
  3. Remove the serpentine belt.
To install:
  1. Route the belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner.
  2. Place the breaker bar and if necessary the socket, on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to the released position.
  3. Install the belt and return the pulley slowly to its original position. Do not let the pulley snap back into position as this may damage the belt and pulley.
  4. Check that the belt is properly seated in each pulley.

Drive belt is loose on 6 cylinder 96 jeep. How do I adjust it?


You will Probably need a New Belt Tensioner. Draw a Diagram of the Belt Routing Before Removal of the Belt.You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It has a Large Pulley on a Bracket that Has a Bolt in the Middle and a Smaller Pulley that Goes Under the Belt and Holds Tension on it. You will need to get a Wratchet, Socket, and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt On the Top Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. This will Lower the Smaller Pulley So that you will be Able to Remove the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I need to do serpatine belt on 96 ford taruaus 3.0


On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.
