How do you replace 97- plymouth voyager belt tensioner


For the 1997 3.0 liter Grand Voyager:

Remove A/C belt. Release tension on serpentine belt by moving the tensioner, then remove the belt. Be sure to note how the belt is routed.

From way back underneath the car look up along the exhaust pipe leading to the rear manifold, you can just see the bolt on the back of the tensioner to the right of the rightmost spark plug boot (looking forward from under the engine). Route a socket (15 mm I think) on a short extension up along the exhaust pipe and shield (make sure it's cold!), you can just get it onto the bolt. Then snake a socket up and connect to the extension, no universal joints needed. There's just enough room to get enough leverage on the bolt to remove it. From then on it's simple.

I replaced my tensioner a few hours ago as above.

How do I adjust the tensiion on the serpentin belt on a 1996 plymoth voyager van


There is no adjustment for the serpentine belt tensioner. It is spring loaded to keep the correct tension on the belt. If the tensioner fails to keep the belt tight enough sometimes lubricating the pivot bushing with penetrating oil will loosen it up and cure the problem; if not replacing the tensioner is the cure.

How to adjust alternator belt


If it's a v-belt vs. a serpentine belt, then look for a pivoting pulley accessory or idler pulley that can be loosened and tightened as far as the belt is concerned.

Many modern vehicles use a serpentine belt that has a tensioner that has a spring that tightens the belt automatically to the right tension and is released using a 1/2" breaker bar or equivalent.

Good luck on this repair.

Need 1993 plymouth voyager serpentine belt diagram


Which engine?
To replace the drive belt or serpentine belt on a Voyager check the engine size. For 2.4L engines, a serpentine belt runs the air conditioning compressor and alternator. For 3.0L models, the alternator and power steering share a belt with a separate belt for the AC. Dodge recommends checking the belts every 15,000 miles or 12 months for possible replacement. I have gone 3 yrs with one.. it will start squealing when you turn on the heater to defrost..

http://www.automd.com/46/how-to-replace-a-serpentine-belt/

Most replacement belts have a diagram on the package. However, the easiest way is to pay close attention to the belt you are taking off, and replace the new one the same way. The pulleys themselves are usually 'grooved' or 'smooth' which tells you whether the front or back of the belt is against it. The hardest part is figuring out how to release tension on the idler-pulley. If you can get the belt on and the idler/tension pulley (same thing) pulls the belt tight, chances are you got the belt right. If you don't know what I mean, then the mostest best way is to get a Clymer Manual and read up. Its really a simple thing to do yourself.

I used a long heavy duty screw driver to release the tension on a Pontiac Sunbird.. the belt will only fit on one way..

Need to know how to put in a surpentied belt for a Plymouth voyager


For the 1993 Plymouth Voyager Serpentine Belt:
Did not specify what Size Engine: 2.5L, 3.0L or 3.3L.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has several of the Serpentine Belt Diagrams and Tensioners that are possible with your Size Engine (2.5L, 3.0L, 3.3L) and engine options (AC/No AC, etc.).
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1993/make/plymouth/model/voyager/1993_plymouth_voyager_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) 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 Tensioners:
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/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

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.Com!
