The average man can not pull the tensioner back by hand for the tension is so great. If your belt does not stay taught while the engine is running replace the tensioner & the belt too. Referring to the word TAUGHT is not bobbing up & down while idling

I have a 2004 saturn vue I changed the idol pulley because it was making that noise then changed the serpentine belt but the serpentine belt keeps on popping can u tell me why?


Belt jumping the pulley ribs?

Check for worn out crankshaft damper pulley

The big one on the bottom

Only reason a belt moves, is an alignment issue
Something wore or changed since the vehicle was made

If you changed an idler pulley because of a bad bearing & noise,
that may have been one problem

Any snapping or jumping, is loss of spring tension in the tensioner
pulley assy. Those are the ones that wear & I thought you were referring to

How do i replace my Serpentine Belt Tensioner in my 1993 saturn sl1


do a search on youtube, there are many videos there. basically you are going to have to release tension, open the service door behind the right front tire and remove two bolts and replace in reverse manner. again there are lots of videos of this on youtube. while you are doing it put in a new belt. the right side dogbone engine mount will be in front of you, replace that while you are at it unless you have already changed it.

Replace serpentine belt on a 1995 Saturn sl1. 1.9 engine


Yes! It is a whole lot easier and faster to take off the passenger tire. Remove plastic cover with speed pins. It is a lot easier to get to the belt tensioner to release belt tension also.Just put a 14mm wrench or 9/16" wrench on the tensioner at the 4:00 o'clock position and push down the belt will be easy to remove and reverse this to install the new one GOOG LUCK *****badgto1NJ
