I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero what do I do to change the bypass pulley do I replace the ac compressor


You evacuate the AC system. You remove the serpentine belt. Then you remove the compressor. But the hoses and secure the cut ends so they don't rattle around. The bypass pulley will fit in place of the compressor. Then you install the serpentine belt

How is the best way to replace a serpentine belt on a 2005 kia sorento


First remove the engine plastic cover by removing the bolts that hold in. Then loosen the nuts at the front of the AC Belt and Power Steering Belt. Now use a Socket set and loosen these two belts by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise.

You have to remove the first two belts (AC & Power Steering) before reaching the Serpentine Belt.

Now loosen the nut on the front of the lowest pulley before loosening the serpentine belt.

To loosen the serpentine belt, you could either remove the metal skid plate at the bottom of the engine by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise or reach down from the top and loosen it with the socket set ( quick & easiest)

What is the book time to replace a half shaft left side. also time for changing the bottom radiator hose, and both alternator belt and ac belt.


With proper maintenance the half shaft should never need replaced. If your mechanic says to then do, otherwise there is no definate way of telling you when it needs it. The radiator hose will need changed when it feels soft. This will be pretty easy to tell as the bottom hose is the 'low' side of the system which means this is where the water pump sucks the coolant from. They make the bottom hose usually a lot stiffer even with a spring in it sometimes to keep it from collapsing. If its soft it needs replaced. If the belts are squealing, it needs replaced. You should have a serpentine belt. So if the inside (ribs) of the belt look cracked or there are missing ribs it needs replaced.

Remove the serpentine belt by using a breakover bar, rachet or serpentine belt removal tool with the correct size socket for the pulley mounting bolt. Rotate tensioner arm to release tension. Remove the belt.

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

!991 Olds 88...can I replace with a shorter serpentine belt?


Unplug wires going to the compressor, and let it freewheel, if it's not noisy in that mode. A/C compressor won't kick in if not connected. A lot less hassle than going the other way.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
