Get a 1/2" breaker bar and remove tension on belt by rotating the tensioner until belt is loose.

Remove belt noting the under over method.

Install new belt. The smooth pulleys have the back of the serpentine belt, and the grooved pulleys have the inside front of the serpentine belt up against it.

In this way you can reroute any serpentine belt on the market.

Good luck.

My serpantine belt has been dislocating many times from alternator, how to improve this situation? should I change the alternator with a new one? My Car is Suzuki Aerio 2004, please help me to solve this...


Before replacing the alternator or belt I would take a look at the belt tensioner. Sounds like the belt is loose, and that would be a problem with the tensioner.

You need a 14mm socket on a extended breaker bar,
place on automatic tensioner center pulley bolt which is the dumpy pulley located above the alternator.
