Need to relieve tension on serpintine belt, V6 '02

I'm replacing power steering pump, and need to relieve tension on serpintine belt, V6 '02 Sonata. Can't fit 1/2'' breaker bar into slots on belt tensioner, they're too shallow. Is there a special tool?

How do I release tension to put fan belt on


If you have the v-belt type, you have to loosen the alternator or power steering pump.

If you have the serpentine belt type, follow these directions:

Serpentine Belt
  1. On all models except the 7.4L engine with A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a 1/2 in. breaker bar with a socket placed on the tensioner pulley bolt, rotate the tensioner to relieve belt tension.
  2. On all 7.4L engines with a A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a suitable wrench on the pulley axis bolt to rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension.
  3. Remove the serpentine belt.

To install:

  1. Route the belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner.
  2. On all models except the 7.4L engine with A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), place the breaker bar and socket on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotate the tensioner to the released position.
  3. Install the belt and return the pulley to its original position.
  4. On all 7.4L engines with a A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a suitable wrench on the pulley axis bolt to rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension.
  5. Install the belt and return the pulley to its original position.
  6. Check that the belt is properly seated in each pulley

Steps to replacing the serpintine belt


release tension on belt by:
-put a socket/breaker bar or ratched on the tensioner pulley bolt and use it to relieve tension on the belt
-slide belt off tensioner pulley. replace with new belt in same pattern across all pulleys and again relieve tension on the tensioner puller to slide the new belt back on
--you may need to remove the bolt on the tensioner closest to the pulley (i don't know just judging by the picture i found)
---if you don't know what the tensioner looks like look up the part on autozone's website for a picture you can match on your car

I need to replace a drive belt for a 2001 AU. Do I take the power steering pump off to do this??


Hi Serena,

No. There is what is called a serpentine belt on the Taurus engine. WE ARE talking about a Taurus aren't we?

Before proceeding, look for a diagram (Under the hood somewhere) of the routing for the belt. If none exists, draw a picture. This will help you putting the new one on.

Anyway, this single belt is held tight by a spring loaded tensioner pulley. It will be a smaller one, attached to an arm, not a pump or anything.

It's the arm that is spring loaded. The tension on the belt is relieved by the controlled application of force on this arm. Nothing needs to be removed, no pry bars are needs

There are different types, requiring different tools. Look for a 1/2" square hole on the arm. If there, you'll need a 1/2" ratchet or breaker bar. A short extension too.

If not, you'll need a socket that fits on the nut of the pulley. Plus the ratchet.

Set the ratchet so it extends upward, above the engine.

Position your self to be able to move the arm one handed and still not hit yourself in the face if it slips. Push (or pull), slowly building up until the belt is loose enough to to slip off of one of the other pulleys.

Then slowly release the tension on the arm.

Putting the new one on is pretty much a reverse of this procedure.

Hope you find this to be very helpful

Best regards,
Mike

  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.

Replacing belts


You will need to have a 3/8 drive ratchet or breaker bar to place into the idler pulley slot that is rectangular. Apply pressure to the wrench in the direction to relieve the belt tension. Slip the belt off of one of the pulleys and gently release the idler tensioner. There should be a map that shows you the belt routing on the front cowl. If you do not see it remember the belt routing as you remove it so you can replace it correctly. If it is a serpentine belt make sure the ribs of the belt are seated in all the pulleys before starting the truck.

2.7L & 3.5L Engines same Tools & Procedure Rate Me Please 1/2 in. breaker bar & Special Tool 7198 for conventional V-belts and Poly-V belts
  1. REMOVAL
    AIR CONDITIONING BELT

    NOTE: The A/C drive belt self tensioner is NOT a dynamic tensioner. After adjustment the tensioner bracket bolts are tightened. The torsion spring is no longer responsible for tensioning the A/C belt. The torsion spring is only used for initial belt tensioning.
    1. Remove generator/power steering belt to gain access to A/C belt. Refer to GENERATOR/POWER STEERING BELT for procedure.

    1. Loosen BUT DO NOT REMOVE tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt (Fig. 2).
    2. Insert 1/2" drive breaker bar into square opening on belt tensioner. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise until belt can be removed from pulleys (Fig. 2).
    3. Slowly rotate tensioner clockwise to relieve spring load.
    CLEANING
    Clean all foreign debris from belt pulley grooves. The belt pulleys must be free of oil, grease, and coolants before installing the drive belt.

    INSPECTION
    Belt replacement under any or all of the following conditions is required:
    • Excessive wear
    • Frayed cords
    • Severe glazing
  • Poly-V Belt system may develop minor cracks across the ribbed side (due to reverse bending). These minor cracks are considered normal and acceptable. Parallel cracks are not (Fig. 3).

    NOTE:
    Do not use any type of belt dressing or restorer on Poly-V Belts. INSTALLATION

    AIR CONDITIONING BELT - NEW

    WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE A/C BELT TENSIONER LOCKING BOLT WITHOUT FIRST HOLDING THE TENSIONER WITH A 1/2" DRIVE BREAKER BAR, AS PERSONAL INJURY COULD RESULT.
NOTE: Verify that torsion spring position is in the new belt position before installing a NEW belt (Fig. 4). If torsion spring is not in the new belt position, follow steps 1-7 to change the tensioner spring from the USED belt position to the NEW belt position.
  1. Insert a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the square opening on the tensioner. Hold counterclockwise pressure on tensioner while removing the locking bolt (Fig. 2).
  2. Carefully release spring load of the torsion spring on the tensioner.
  3. Remove pivot bolt, tensioner, and spring from front timing cover.
  4. Insert spring arm into the NEW belt position on the tensioner (Fig. 4).
  5. Install torsion spring, tensioner, and pivot bolt.
  6. Install pivot bolt. Tighten only finger tight, at this time.
  7. Using a 1/2" drive breaker bar, apply counterclockwise pressure until locking bolt can be installed.
    1. Install the NEW belt by rotating the tensioner counterclockwise until the NEW belt can be installed on pulleys. See (Fig. 5) for belt routing.
    2. Release tensioner and remove breaker bar. Belt is automatically adjusted with the tensioner's torsion spring.
    3. Tighten tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) (Fig. 2).
    4. Install generator/power steering belt.
    AIR CONDITIONING BELT - USED

    NOTE: A "used belt" is considered having more than 500 miles of service use. NOTE: Perform steps 1-7 to change the tensioner spring from the NEW belt position, to the USED belt position.
    1. Insert a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the square opening on tensioner. Hold counterclockwise pressure on tensioner, while removing tensioner locking bolt (Fig. 2).
    2. Carefully release the tension of spring on tensioner.
    3. Remove pivot bolt, tensioner, and spring from front cover.
    4. Insert spring into the USED belt position on tensioner bracket (Fig. 4).
    5. Install spring, tensioner bracket, and pivot bolt.
    6. Install pivot bolt. Tighten only finger tight, at this time.
    7. Using a 1/2" drive breaker bar, apply counterclockwise pressure until locking bolt can be installed.
    8. Install the USED belt by rotating tensioner counterclockwise until belt can be installed on pulleys. See (Fig. 5) for belt routing.
    9. Release tensioner and remove breaker bar. Belt is automatically adjusted with the tensioner's torsion spring.
    10. Tighten tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) (Fig. 2).
    11. Install generator/power steering belt.
