Use good jackstands and remove from the bottom using basic metric shop tools. The tensioner for the belt will be accessed from the top.

  • Located front of engine, close to crank pulley
  • press the helpful button and follow me on Fixya for more tips
  • Insert the square tip of a 1/2-inch socket wrench into the square hole in the center of the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley. The adjustment pulley is the smallest pulley the belt wraps around.

Trying to install new serpentine drive belt. Doesn't look like alternator is adjustable. There is a belt tensioner but I can't get quite enough play out of it. Can't really get a tool on it to hold it...

Some of the parts are hard to see. You should have a square hole in the belt tensioner fixture. This would fit either a 3/8 drive rachet or a 1/2 drive rachet. You will put the rachet or breaker bar in the square hole and push against the spring tension.

A trick to installing the belt is not to use the belt tensioner as the last pulley to slide the belt over. Put the belt over the tensioner and use your body weight to push against it. Then slide the belt over the last uncovered pulley and let off your weight on the tensioner.

Sliding door is grinding as it opens/closes. Can we lube something we can't see or should we replace some part?

Ha ha.Not my usual type of answer but had the same problem about a month ago.At the bottom of the sliding door is usually 2 rollers.One at either end.They adjust up and down by using a screwdriver.The adjust screw is on the end or on the side of the door.You may only see a screwdriver hole.Adjust it down.Move the slider to the middle of the slide and lift it up and the bottom of the door should lift outwards toward you.This will allow the top of the door to come out of its slide area also.Once the door is out,check the rollers and you can easily see what may be wrong.Hope this is of help

The radio with a 6 disc changer stock wont eject cds in my 2001 ford windstar van with double sliding auto open/close doors


Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open and remove the CD.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Need to install new neutral safety switch on tranny of 1979 Ford F150 - any tips or problems I may encounter? Does the new switch need to be adjusted after install or just bolted in place? thanks, also the...

There is a procedure to set the switch so that it will start in neutral and park and not in drive or reverse, there are two slotted mounting holes on the switch for adjustment purposes to get it close put a scribe mark on the old switch in relation to the mounting bolt heads, when installing new switch look at the marks on the old switch to approximately locate the switch in relation to mounting bolt heads. When removing the switch make sure the truck is in park, remove the shift lever nut off the transmission where the Neutral safety switch is, then unplug the wire going to the switch, mark the bolt relation to switch as described and slide switch off the transmission shift shaft, the inside of switch hole is not round it has a flat or square type hole so it can lock into shaft and turn with shaft you may need to rotate the switch back and forth to slide it over the shift shaft when installing the new switch. bolt it on after sliding it over the shaft noting the aproximate location using the scribe marks on old switch, after assembling the shift lever and plugging the wire back in a fine adjustment of switch amy be needed if the starter doesn't activate, get under the truck loosen the hold down bolts for the switch and have an assistant hold the ignition switch to the start position while you rotate the switch when the starter activates lock down the bolts and check after to be sure the truck won't start in drive or reverse adjust accordingly.

How to remove headlanmp to replace bulb

This also applies to the 2001 GMC Jimmy.
The headlight assembly is held in place as one entire unit.
In between the battery and the headlight assembly unit are two tabs that when pulled upward (by hand) will release the housing from the vehicle. (VERY EASY once you know). The headlight assembly is now held to the vehicle ONLY by wires, so don't let it drop and break. It's now just a matter of bulb replacement from the backside of the headlight assembly. Do this by turning the bulb in it's socket until the little catches line up with the open slots and poll the light bulb out. Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb you are installing if it is a halogen bulb. Doing so will severely shorten the life of the bulb since contaminants on your hands cause the bulb to quickly overheat and die.
Once the bulb is changed and plugged back into the wires, put the headlight assembly back in place by aligning it and poke the two plastic pegs on the back of the headlight assembly into the two square holes in the front of the vehicle. Now slide the two tabs you originally pulled up to release the headlight assembly, back down into place making sure the "slots" at the bottom of sliding tabs catch the square plastic pegs on the back of the headlight assembly. Do NOT pound the sliding tabs back down. Doing so will break the square pegs off of the back of the headlight assembly and pounding is not necessary if you have them properly in the square holes and all of the way in.

Need to replace serpentine belt on 2001 tracker cannot find adjustments to loosen belt. thanks .

You should see a spring loaded tensioner,usually right by the pulley you will see a square hole to insert a rachet,pull back and remove the might be helpful to have a friend to hold the rachet with the tension off the belt.Be careful if the rachet slips, there is a lot of tension on the spring and you could get hurt,watch your hands,don't put fingers between belt and pulleys
