Can't get belt tensioner to loosen belt so i cant get it back on

First ensure the belt tensioner (if removed) is correctly in the locator pin on front of engine, behind tensioner. Second make sure the tensioner moves (should turn counter clockwise to relieve tension). Third make sure you properly routed the belt correctly around all the pulleys, and aligned in the grooves. There should be a routing diagram on the rad housing or reservoir. If you are replacing the belt, hold it up to the old belt and make sure its the correct lenghth (if you get a belt for a different engine or one without air conditioning it will be shorter).

How doe's the fan belt go around pully wheels on a Lreg merc c180 thanks

Tricky one...... however serpentine belts always double back on them selves to maximise friction and taughtness, as a rule these go round the pullies and the double back to go around the tensioner. Try placing them around the pullies and the pulling the belt between them towards the tensioner!

I dont have a diagram to run serpentine belt to a toyota camry 03


Replacing Serpentine belt on a Toyota camry 2003—

Step 1--Examine the belt placement of your Toyota Camry fan belt so that you will remember how to put it back once you have removed it. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for further information. Locate the pivot bolt on the front passenger side of the engine. Loosen the pivot bolt with a socket wrench.

Step 2--Loosen the adjustment locking bolt that is just below the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench, and then loosen the tensioner pulley to allow the belt to move free.

Step 3--Check the belt for any signs of cracking or irregular wear, so you can fix any problems that may exist with the pulleys. Remove the fan belt from the pulleys on the engine and take it out of the engine compartment.

Step 4--Wrap the new fan belt around each of the pulleys the same way it came out. When you have the belt in place, tighten the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench.

Step 5--Tighten the adjustment locking bolt and the pivot bolt with a socket wrench, and then look over the engine to check that everything is back in place.

Step 6--Turn the vehicle engine on and watch it for a few minutes to verify that everything is operating properly, then turn the engine off.
