Serpentine belt


There is a belt tensioner that has to be moved to release the tension on the belt. Once the tensioner is moved you can remove the belt and install the new one. Sometimes you need a special tool to move the tensioner.
Make sure you have a drawing of the routing of the belt, normally there is a sticker on the hood or the radiator support.

How simple is it to change a alternator belt on subaru svx?


  1. Removing the Serpentine Belt
    • 1 Park your Subaru on a level surface and open the hood.
    • 2 Disconnect the ground (black) battery cable using a wrench. This will prevent the cooling fan from activating.
    • 3 Locate the serpentine belt routing diagram in your engine compartment and compare it to the actual routing of the installed belt. Make sure the routing on the label matches the actual routing. If they do not match or there is no label, note the actual routing on a piece of paper for later reference.
    • 4 Locate the belt tensioner pulley on your Subaru model. If the tensioner is equipped with a squared hole, use a large breaker bar with a 1/2-inch (13 mm) drive. Otherwise, use a ratchet and socket of the proper size on the tensioner pulley center bolt.
    • 5 Rotate the tensioner pulley away from the belt to release the belt tension.
    • 6 Pull the belt off of one of the pulleys and slowly release the tensioner pulley back into position. Do not let the tensioner pulley snap back or you may damage an internal component.
    • 7 Finish removing the serpentine belt from the rest of the pulleys and the engine compartment.
    Installing the New Serpentine Belt
    • 1 Match the old belt to the new one and make sure they are of the same length and configuration. It is normal for the new belt to be slightly shorter since the old one has been stretched through use.
    • 2 Route the new serpentine belt through all of the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. Use the diagram on the engine compartment or your notes, as a reference, to properly route the belt.
    • 3 Insert the large breaker bar into the square hole or the ratchet and socket into the tensioner pulley center bolt.
    • 4 Rotate the tensioner pulley in the same direction you did to release the belt tension.
    • 5 Slide the serpentine belt onto the tensioner pulley.
    • 6 Release the tensioner pulley back into position.
    • 7 Look at all the pulleys and make sure the serpentine belt is properly seated on each one. Otherwise, release the belt tension and adjust the belt.
    • 8 Connect the ground (black) battery cable using the wrench.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    How to remove and replace serpentine belt on 2004 sebring with 2.4l dohc engine. are special tools needed, space seems really tight.


    MY solution was to remove the rain shroud underneath the car, and work from beneath. Route the belt over all the pulleys, leaving the tensioner for LAST. With someone above releasing the tensioner with a serpentine belt tool, you can work the belt over the tensioner bit by bit. Make sure the belt is seated correctly before engaging the tensioner.

    To remove the serpentine belt on the 2UZ-FE engine, position a suitable sized wrench or ratchet and socket over the belt tensioner bolt, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to release the belt tension, then remove the belt. The pulley bolt for the tensioner has a left-hand thread.
    When installing the belt, make sure it fits properly in the ribbed grooves and check to be sure the belt has NOT slipped out of the groove on the bottom of the pulley.
