You must press on tensioner to make room for new belt. The tensioner then re-traps and keep belt tension when new belt in on. So in other words you have to put belt over all othe pulley leaving tensioner for last using a 3/8 ratchet with out a socket (just the square end) in the hole thats in the tensioner pushdown/up to make room for belt to slide on. If the belt seems short make sure that it is routed the correct way. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a "rating". Thanks

You'll need a socket and breaker bar to do this job easily. The socket will be of the size 9/16 to 3/4 in that range. Place the socket on the retaing bolt for the tensioner pulley and pull it towards the side that it moves easily, it will only move one way. While holding the tensioner take the serpentine belt off of the uppermost pulley with the other hand. release the tensioner and hang the belt with a piece of coathanger as not to let it slip off the remainig pulleys.Then remover the teensioner pulley retainig bolt and reverse order to replace the pulley and belt.
