There should be a diagram on the underside of your hood, or in the engine compartment somewhere. If not, wrap it around the crankshaft pulley to start, and then work your way around the pulley system, putting flat sides to flat pulleys, and ribs to ribs. There may be a few different combinations, but you'll figure it out.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

Replaced the serpentine belt on a mazda protege then the engine runs hot dropping voltage and now wont start at all is this all from the belt?


Could be. The serpentine belt powers the alternator and the water pump. Maybe the belt is on wrong and running them backward. You would not be the first one to put a belt on wrong.

SERPENTINE BELT


I had a similar problem that turned out to be some bad rubber bushings on the alternator mounting bolt. The alternator would shift from side to side causing misalignment with the serpentine belt. To check this, you will need to remove the serpentine belt and take a close look at those bushings. If they are original equipment, I would change them out. In my case, everything lined up fine, but with the engine running, the alternator would shift position and shred the serpentine belt. Good luck.

Inspection

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.


Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Rotate the auto tensioner clockwise to release tension, then remove the drive belt.

To install:
  1. Install drive belt (A). Route the belt over the components in the following order: Crankshaft pulley - A/C pulley - idler pulley - generator pulley - water pump pulley - P/S pump pulley - tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate auto tensioner arm in the counter-clockwise moving auto tensioner pulley bolt with wrench.
  3. After putting belt on auto tensioner pulley, release the auto tensioner pulley slowly.

I want to bypass the air condition unit with serpentine belt need to know how that would effect the water pump.


The serpentine belt is meant to run everything at once. it is a tricky situation trying to bypass a pulley. If the pulley is located at the bottom of the serpentine relay, you should be able to buy a shorter belt and bypass the A/C, but make sure to incorporate the water pump or you're asking for a seized engine. It may or may not be possible. i did it on an 89 Escort, but it was simple and the A/C was located at the bottom of the serpentine cycle. The original belt was 23" and the new belt was 19". Just make sure to wrap the belt around the water pump as it probably runs your timing belt as well.

How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to find bolt being referred to in other docs


Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

Step 1
  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.
