Serpentine belt keeps coming off


this sure sounds as if your belt tensioner is worn out and not putting enough force into belt to keep it on the pulleys , also look (eye's only) at all the pulleys when engine running (carefull!!) see if any wobble or don't seem to round if there bad it will be obvious

Belt keeps coming off


It shouldent come off if it is the tensioners not working or broken there should only be about a couple of cm play when you press the belt or its stretched to the point even yhe tensioners not tight enough to keep it on

Need a diagram to show how a belt is put on


here is a very nice belt diagram for your car
http://www.fixya.com/cars/t2859137-need_diagram_routing_serpentine

you can remove the old belt/replace by using a 15mm box wrench on the tensioner pully bolt.. that will pivot the tensioner to release tension. then the belt comes off easily .. do the same to install

How do I install the serpentine belt on a 2003 Ford expedition?


Hello,Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine.The tensioner is what keeps tension on the belt and keeps the belt from coming off.The tensioner will have a bolt head in the middle of it that a 15mm socket will fit
STEP 2:Look on the hood base where the hood lock attaches to the base and see if there is a belt diagram.This diagram will give you the exact instruction for properly routing the belt across the pulleys.If there is no diagram there,you will need to write down the exact routing of the belt on the pulleys on a notepad
STEP 3:Put the 15mm socket onto the ratchet and put the ratchet onto the bolt head on the belt tensioner.
STEP 4:Turn the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt and remove the belt from all of the pulleys
STEPS 5:Remove the new serpentine belt the same way that the old one came off by following the belt routing diagram instruction.Do not put the belt across the tensioner until last.Keep in mind that the belt will only go on one way and be right.
STEP 6:Put the ratchet with the 15mm socket back on the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner clockwise to give you enough room to slide the new belt across the belt tensioner pulley.Slide the belt onto the belt tensioner pulley and release the belt tensioner.Look over the belt and double check to make sure that the belt is running across all of the
pulleys correctly
STEP 7:Crank the car and inspect that the belt is secure and is staying in the grooves on all of the pulleys.

Thanks

I need a diagram on how to put back a serpentine belt for a 2006 Mercedes benz R350


here is the diagram:-- 68c17bf.png
On the 2006 R350, a 17 mm bolt just under the belt going to the tension pulley will release the belt tension when turned counterclockwise. Removal of the belt was easy after using a 17 mm deep socket wrench similar to a spark plug socket. I made turning the bolt very easy by slipping a 4' pipe over the socket wrench handle. It is advisable to put the new belt LAST on the idler pulley that contacts the belt only on the smooth side.

You do not need todisturb theButton Torx bolt in the center of the tension pully.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

I own a ford focus 2006 the belt fell off I'm not sure which one and a need to be able to put it back on.


well, the belt does not just fall off. If the belt has come off it's because one of the pullys have failed.there is only 1 belt on that car, there should be a diagram under the hood that says "drive belt routing"
You need to release tension on the tensioner pully with a serpentine belt tool or a long 3/8" breaker bar. rout the belt according to the diagram, then re apply the tension
