SOURCE: installing accessory belt on 94 Buick P/Ave ultra.

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

SOURCE: replace belt tensioner on 1998 camaro v6

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.

This label shows the accessory belt routing on a Lumina with a 3.1L engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt shield.
  3. Fit a 3/8 inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner off of the drive belt. When the tension on the belt is removed, slide the drive belt from the pulleys.

To install:

  1. Taking care to follow the proper routing of the belt, slip the belt onto the pulleys. As a help, note that the water pump pulley is usually driven from the back (smooth side) of the belt.
  2. Fit a 3/8 -inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner and, with the belt in place, gently release the tensioner.
  3. Verify that the belt is correctly routed and aligned in the proper grooves of the accessory drive belt pulleys. Inspect the drive belt length scale on the drive belt tensioner for the proper indicated length. If the drive belt length scale does not indicate the proper installed length, the belt may be incorrect, incorrectly installed, worn out or the tensioner may be defective.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the vehicle and verify correct operation.

What is the pulley called that is to tighten the belt on a 1998 dodge ram 1500 4wd truck?


The accessory belt tensioner is what keeps the accessory drive belt tight, or you can purchase just the accessory belt tensioner pulley separate, however the complete unit should be replaced.

How replace the fan belt and idler pully


Your Catera does not have a fan belt, it has an accessory belt. The fan is electrically operated using a thermal switch.

To replace the accessory belt, you use a ratchet head to loosen the tensioner pulley, and slide the belt off one pulley, then release the tensioner and finish removing the belt. You install the new belt on all but the pulley closest to the tensioner, release the tension with a ratchet head, then install the belt on the tensioner pulley and release the tensioner so that it applies pressure on the belt.

replacement is not too difficult. usually the bolt in the center turns opposite to how you normally loosen bolts. to remove the hole tension should be straightforward as you will see the bolts

How do you relace an alternator belt on 1998 chevy tracker?


A year is not a good sign. The belt should not have come off in that span of time. I would make sure you do not have a worn out idler or tensioner pulley bearing before installing your new belt or reinstalling the original if it is not worn or damaged.

You will find one or two small pulleys involved with drive belt. One of the smaller pulleys will be an "idler" pulley and simply redirects the belt to a different accessory. The other small pulley is considered a "tensioner" pulley, it is spring loaded and keeps the correct tension on the accessory belt.
The tensioner pulley will have a "squared" hole in the bracket or a bolt through the center of the pulley. In either case you will use a wrench to pry the tensioner pulley arm in the direction that loosens the belt. Once tension is relieved, pull the belt off a pulley and remove the belt. You will reverse the process to install the new belt.
Good luck and let me know.
Regards,

Diagram for fan belt repair


2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
