Hey DL,

Here's how to get a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

The back side of the belt the ( smooth side) goes against the smooth pullies.The side with lines on it goes to the other pullies. Some vehicles have the diagran in the engine compartment. Under the hood or by the top of the radiater.

motor mount does not need to be removed. there is an idler pulley which can be lifted up using a socket and long bar. the belt relaxes and is easily removed and replaced.

What would cause difficulty in putting on a serpentine belt? The car squeeks when the belt was on before, now it is difficult to put on the belt in order to see what causes the problem.


Make sure that you have identified the tensioner pulley as apposed to the idler pulley. With the 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley's bolt, rotate it clockwise and this will release the tension on the belt, or in the case of installing a new serpentine belt, allow you to get it where it belongs. Hope this helped Tim

If i remove my aircon compresser will my car still be safe to drive ???


If you remove the A/C compressor and don't make the needed changes for the serpentine belt to still be installed, then no it won't be safe ot drive. You won't have any power steering for one and that would make turning the wheels extremely difficult. Since the water pump also need the sepentine belt to operate, your engine will overheat in a short amount of time.

Not a big deal. the hardest part will be replacing the serpentine belt. a chilton or haynes manual would be helpful.
