Undo the lock on the tensioner.for the other bolt,use what is known as a breaker bar,some oaf probably used an air gun to tighten the bolt,not a torque wrench. a breaker bar will give up to 300 lb feet of torque.

Need rear wheel off


most rear hubs have a keeper holding it on these need to be removed, using a screw driver and needle nose pliers, you can remove them, next after brake drum is off you have 4 17mm bolts that need to come off, and also the speed sensor, a 10 mm socket, I have found that you also need a breaker bar to loosen these bolts up

Need to install the 2 belts on 2005 scion xb.any special tools needed?


Should be pretty straight forward. I replaced the trans fluid back in Dec. and all I needed was metric wrenches and a bucket. You may want to try sites like scionlife.com and clubxb.com for other issues.
Just remember how the belts wrap around. Ya don't want to reverse the pulley on the alternator, etc.
Good luck

No i have pulled out the stereo myself and there is no port for it, that option is now offered on the 2008 which sucks because they where giving ipods away at the dealership when i got my 05 Scion xb makes no sense huh.

How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?


I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

How do I get the bottom bolt out of alternator for 2004 scion xb? I can't seem to get it loose.


There is a bolt on the bottom of the alt that holds it.
You should be able to use a 3/8" or 1/2" ratchet with a 12mm socket. (I only felt it, so I am guessing)
But 12mm seems to be a very common size for Scion and Toyota in general.

The bolt goes through two ears (or lobes) that are part of the engine block. The lobes are on either side of a "tunnel" that is part of the alt's housing. If it is too difficult, try shooting some penetrating oil into the back, where the threads are set into the lobe on the block.
Careful not to spray any into the alt itself.
