How does the belt tensioner go back on the pick

I took the top belt adjuster off and know i can't seem to put it back together properly. Every way that i have tried so far ends up with the pully on the adjuster locking up.

I think your best bet, after making sure you have the proper belt that isn't too short of course, and that it is routed properly through your pulley assembly, is to get a photo diagram of your engine assembly where you can see the tensioner...try google images. Then you can replicate the tensioner position.

Jack up the car and support it on jack stands.
Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery for your safety.
Make sure the transmission is in neutral.
Remove all spark plugs.
Remove any plastic shields from underneath the engine.
Drain coolant.
Remove cooling fan and any plastic fan coverings from the front of the engine (usually reverse-threaded, so turn right to loosen).
Disconnect all cooling hoses from engine and label for easy reassembly.
Remove the radiator from the car, may or may not have to.
Remove the engine drive belts.
Remove the cap and rotor.
Remove the water pump pulley.
Remove the bolts holding the upper timing belt cover.
Place a socket on the center of the crankshaft pulley. Rotate engine to top dead center (TDC), which means that the first piston in an inline engine is at the top. There's a mark showing TDC on the pulley and the engine.
Loosen the crankshaft pulley bolts. Remove the crankshaft pulley and vibration damper.
Remove the lower timing belt cover.
Mark the location of the main tensioner bolt.
Remove the bolt that holds the tensioner and timing belt cover.
Remove the main adjustment bolt for the tensioner.
Remove the freed tensioner and tensioner spring.
Once the tensioner is off, the belt comes off.
Again, make sure the engine is set to top dead center, which will make confirmation of the timing marks easier.
Install a new timing belt and tensioner, making sure to properly align the timing marks as you do so.
Adjust the tension of the new belt.
Confirm all timing marks are lined up.
Put everything back together, following the reverse of the steps in the previous section.

I need to replace the tensioner on my 96 mercury mystique and i need to know what to do


Hi, pick your engine from among the cases below. Use a wrench or 3/8 inch socket head to rotate the tensioner clockwise. While holding the tensioner, take the belt off the alternator pulley, then release the tension. Leave the belt on the rest of the pulleys. Remove the bolt holding the tensioner to the engine. Note the angle of the tensioner--there is usually some type of index pin to properly orient the tensioner angle on the engine. Replace with the new tensioner, ensuring the indexing pin is in it's hole and insert the bolt. Tighten the bolt well. Turn the tensioner clockwise again and put the belt back on the alternator pulley. Release the tensioner. Start the engine and observe the belt to insure it is properly driving the pulleys and is centered on each one. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

Have you tried to start it yet?That may be all you need to do to get the tensioner to re-activate and get the proper tightness.Be quick though.Only a brief start,then check it to see if it is any better.

The timing belt is broken so i took it off how can i put it back on?


1- Make sure the piston # 1 at the top position. 2- Make sure the mark from the Camshaft gear, Crank shaft gear aligned in the straight line. 3- Put the timing belt in, and adjust the tensioner. Then you are good to go. This is called TDC Top Dead Center. Good luck

Need to install the 2 belts on 2005 scion xb.any special tools needed?


Should be pretty straight forward. I replaced the trans fluid back in Dec. and all I needed was metric wrenches and a bucket. You may want to try sites like scionlife.com and clubxb.com for other issues.
Just remember how the belts wrap around. Ya don't want to reverse the pulley on the alternator, etc.
Good luck
