There is a idler wheel that has a bolt that when loosened will cause it to spring back. As you lay under the car with your feet first inward ( looking straight up from under vehicle snake the belt through and over the pulleys then pry back with a long pry bar the idler pulley lever after loosening bolt on wheel or lever as you put the belt over the pulleys. I have done this belt on a 1999 528 i it is a unpleasant job without a diagram showing the serpentine pulley arrangement, there is a second idler pulley located slightly higher than the release locking idler pulley don't confuse the two, I would advise aquiring a serpentine belt diagram (cd repair manual on ebay motors) unless you are confident you can figure it out through trial and error.

How to tighten fan belt on 1999 fairmount ghia v8


The cars today do not have belt adjustments they have what is caller a idler pulls that keeps a serpintine belt "all in one belt" that snakes around all the pulleys,thus the serpintine..name..anyway if it is slipping most likely the belt needs replacing or the idler itself is bad..neither can be adjusted..the fix is replacement...your car should have a belt route under the hood showing where it goes and the idler is spring loaded and easy easy to take the pressure off to take the old belt off and replace it..not a big job for garages if you wish not to DIY .good lucK

Replacing serpintine belt, belt keeps slipping off, How can you fix? 1999 pontiac grand am


Sounds like the belt tightener unit is wore out and needs replacing.
As the bearings wear out the pulley will move around causing the belt to come off. When you replace the tightener you should replace the belt as well.

Serpintine belt broke . seems to have seized part on the bottom of the belt(the part that the belt tensioner sits on). need to replace belt.


your a/c compressor is probably seized up. have to replace or route belt around (but your a/c will not work.)

Auto store and serpintine belt


If it seems to short it is likely because the belt is not routed right.To see if it is the right belt stretch the new and old belt out side by side and if it's wrong you should be able to notice the differane.

My 1999 dodge Intrepid makes a loud whining noise (like a power steering pump) any time it is running... Any ideas on what it could be?


if the winning noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel, it is the power steering pump.
99 to 04 intrepids have a serpintine belt with a self tightner.what i did with mine is **** the old power steering fluid out with a shop vac.replaced half with new fluid and top up with a transmission/power steering fluid additive.the noise went away after a couple of days.

Replace serpintine belt


You shouldn't need to most of the time all you need is a 15mm wrench. Use it by turning the spring tightener inward toward the center of the motor than the belt should come off. Also when you take it off make sure you know how the belt goes around the pulleys so everything will work together like normal. when putting the belt on you should use the wrench to turn the tightener back inward and slip the belt back on and make sure it looks just like the old one when its on.

Nebettleed to change serpintine belt on a 2000 voltswagen


The easiest solution I can say would be to go to parts america or Advance Auto Parts during a non peak time and ask for help. These belts should be a 5 minute replacement and most store employees will enjoy offering you the free service just to get out of the store for a few minutes. SOME stores are more willing to help than others.

(If you over tighten the belt you will have problems and if you under tighten the belt you will have squeals. If you still wish to do this yourself just make sure the belt is tight enough that it only turns 90 degrees in the middle to the left of right when tightened.)
