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?

Why does the power steering pump drive belt squeel under load when its cold on 2004 hyundai elantra.


this sounds like the belt is worn and needs replacing.when its damp and cold if the belt is worn it will slip easier under this condition than in warmer weather.also the belt tension may not be proper.if this has a belt adjuster that you can adjust then the tension may need to be tightened.if it has an automatic belt tensioner(one that adjust tension all the time)like a serpintine belt then the tensioner may need to be replaced as the spring that crates the tension do get weak over time.

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

My serpintine belt keep coming off i replaced pulley and tensione


Typically a belt will come off if all the pulleys are not perfectly aligned.
If you recently replaced a power steering pump and the pulley was not properly seated all the way down where the pulley front is flush with the metal shaft from the pump then you will shred the belts and they will come off. If you ONLY swapped the tensioner and idler pulley you may have installed the tensioner so it isn't parallel to the other pulleys but that would be very rare because it would have been difficult to get the belt on if it was not properly installed. There also could be a damaged plastic pulley that could be "cutting" into the belt which would also cause the belt to slip off.

Water pump replacement


You required to remove the front cover of the engines. You will be finding the timing belts and drive belts which is connecting the crank shaft at the bottom to A/C compressor, power steering pump coolent pump and a belt tensioner.

You have to loosen the belt tensioner and remove the belt. then you have to remove the pump. Before removing the coolent pump, you need to drain coolent, so that you can refill the same again.

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
