Need to replace serpentine belt


Open the hood of your Prizm and locate the negative battery terminal on the battery. Loosen the clamp bolt on the negative battery cable end with a wrench and remove the cable from the battery terminal. Isolate the battery cable from the battery terminals while you are working.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine; it is on the left as you look at it from the front. Place a breaker bar and socket on the bolt in the center of the tensioner and rotate it counterclockwise, releasing the tension on the belt.
  • 3 Slide the belt off the tensioner, rotate the tensioner back to the free arm position, and then remove the belt from the rest of the pulleys. Discard the old belt and install the new belt onto the pulleys, paying careful attention to the belt path.
  • 4 Rotate the tensioner counterclockwise with the breaker bar and socket, then slide the belt onto it. The path for the belt is printed on a sticker placed under the hood of the car, normally on the radiator support, so be sure to follow it if you are unsure how the belt is routed.
  • 5 Rotate the tensioner clockwise, allowing it to tighten the belt. Remove the socket and breaker bar from the tensioner, then install the negative battery cable on the battery terminal. Tighten the clamp bolt with a wrench and close the hood.

    (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) how do I remove and replace my serpentine belt successfully?


    Instructions Things You'll Need
    • 3/8-inch drive breaker bar
    • Metric socket kit
    • New serpentine belt
      • 1

        Park the Pontiac in a safe work area and open the hood.

      • 2

        Inspect the top of the black plastic cover that surrounds the fan for the serpentine belt routing diagram. This diagram has the instructions for installing the new serpentine belt around the accessory pulleys.

      • 3

        Inspect the front of the engine and locate the automatic belt tensioner. The tensioner on the 1999 Pontiac model vehicles is located between the alternator and the crankshaft pulley. The tensioner has a pulley on one end with a bolt head in the center of the pulley. Use the bolt head to rotate the tensioner.

      • 4

        Turn the tensioner counterclockwise with the breaker bar and a metric socket. Pull the belt out from under the tensioner pulley with your other hand. Then, slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops.

      • 5

        Pull the belt out of the other remaining pulleys. Then, pull the belt out of the engine bay and lay it on the ground.

      • 6

        Route the new belt around the crankshaft pulley. Then, route the new belt around the other remaining pullleys by using the serpentine belt routing diagram for instructions.

      • 7

        Rotate the tensioner pulley counterclockwise with the breaker bar and socket. Then, slide the new belt under the tensioner pulley. Slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops. The tensioner pulls all of the slack out of the belt and brings the new belt to the proper tension. Remove the breaker bar and socket from the tensioner pulley.

      • 8

        Inspect the new belt to ensure that it is seated inside of all the accessory pulleys as directed by the diagram. Then, crank the engine and allow it to run for about 15 seconds. Turn the engine off. Inspect the belt again once more to ensure that
        the belt is still around each pulley. Close the hood.

    Replace alternator


    The alternator belt on the 1999 Dodge Caravan also controls the air conditioner compressor, the water pump and the power steering pump. The belt is called a serpentine belt, and it is designed to fit around all of the accessory pulleys at the same time. As the belt travels around each accessory pulley, it enables the accessory to operate. Once the belt is damaged, cracked or frayed, you should change it before it breaks. If that happens, each of the accessories will stop working.

    Open the hood and prop it up so that it does not fall. Engage the parking brake.

    Inspect the top surface of the fan shroud for the serpentine belt routing diagram. Follow the routing instructions on the diagram to install the new belt.

    Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine. The tensioner is directly below the alternator. Use the bolt that connects the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm to rotate the tensioner.

    Turn the tensioner device counterclockwise to move the tensioner. This will relieve the tension from the belt. Once the belt has enough slack in it, slide the belt out from under the tensioner pulley.

    Lift the belt off each accessory pulley. Slide the belt around the fan blades and out of the engine area.

    Lay the old belt next to the new belt to ensure that the new belt is the correct width and length. Slide the belt around the fan blades and around the crankshaft pulley on the bottom of the engine.

    Follow the belt routing diagram to position the belt around the air conditioner compressor pulley, the power steering pump pulley, the water pump pulley and the idler pulley. Once the belt is routed inside each accessory pulley, inspect the belt to make sure that it is securely inside the pulleys.

    Crank the 1999 Dodge Caravan for 10 to 15 seconds to completely seat the belt ribs in the grooves on each accessory pulley. Shut the engine off and close the hood.

    If the belt routing diagram for the 1999 Dodge Caravan is missing, use a pen and a notepad to draw the exact routing of the old belt and use it when installing the new belt.

    How to change serpentine belt on 2000 chev blazer


    There is tension held on belt by a pulley. You need to release tension and slip belt of nearest pulley. Use a socket and ratchet on the tension pulley to release tension. Make sure there is a diagram of belt routing before you take belt off. Make one yourself if there is none under the hood

    Cannot get the serpentine belt back on


    "HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
    Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    1. Find the Tensioner(s).
    2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
    3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
    4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

    Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
    b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
    c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley and Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
    d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
    e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
