How to adjust fan belt on izusu bighorn 3.1d


Find the tensioner. Tensioner is a pully to adjust the tension of the belt. Mostly the Alternator is the tensioner pully. Check it. ok

Change belts on 2002 kia optima


Not sure what engine you have , but I had an 02 rio with the 1.5 L . The serpentine belt did not have a tensioner (spring loaded) pulley , the belt tightness was adjusted by pivoting the alternator mount.
If you are takling about the Timing belt , the tensioner pulley wont move (even though it is on a spring ) untill you loosen the bolt in the center.

I need to replace the serp. belt on a 1998 Chevy Malibu with a 2.4L engine. I'm pretty sure the idler pully is my tensioner but I don't know where the adjuster bolt is. So where is the tensioner's...

How to change the serpentine belt on a 2002 GMC Sierra HD2500


Look for the belt tensioner pully. If you don't know what this is run the engine and look at the pullies.The one you want is the only one that will be moving up and down.This is the one that is spring loaded.Think it is drivers side top.It may have a square hole in the arm to put a ratchet in.Thinking 3/8" drive but may be 1/2" ,if there is not a hole then you will need a socket that fits on the center bolt of the pully.I will suggest a long handled ratchet or breaker bar,if you don't have one you can put a pipe over the handle of a short handle."cheater pipe"Put force on it so the pully comes up off the belt.If you don't have a belt routing sticker still on your radiator shroud draw one before you remove it.I think the belt comes off on the drivers side.when putting on the new one start at the crank pully,around the waterpump,then to all pullys on passinger side.The last one will be the alternator.Hold the belt down in front of the tensioner pully attach the ratchet and pull until you can slip the belt under the pully,Make sure the belt is properly seated in all pullys before starting.Helps if you have a spare set of hands.

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.

I dont know which is the tension pully to get the belt off and how do i do it


What are you removing? alt? power steering?
Belt Tensioner Operation: 0900823d8004ab61.jpgThis device functions as an idler pulley and is located on either the inside or outside of the accessory drive belt. Its provides the correct tension for initial belt adjustment and maintains this critical tension adjustment during vehicle operation. It can be found on conventional V-belts and the newer serpentine ribbed belts.
