If the belt is dry replace it to for it will squeak as well.
also a glaze can be on all pulleys so wire brushing them all will clean the glaze off and eliminate the squeaks too

I replaced the idler pulley in my car,The bolt that secures the pulley to the tenioner won't lock but tightens.I can get no leverage to get belt on? Any suggestions with out replacing tensioner arm


you don't lever belts at all as it breaks the bindings in the belt
the nut on the shaft that holds the pulley on has to be loosened and then the small bolt at the back of the tensioner mount will move the pulley shaft up or down to adjust the belt tension
so move the pulley shaft to the point where the belt just slips into the pulley groove and then tighten the bolt up until tension is on the belt
tighten up the nut holding the pulley on
If you have the spacer s in the right position then that nut will tighten up securely and retain the tension on the belt

I've replaced idler pulley, tension pulley, a/c clutch, altenator, and belt but my 1999 chevy suburban still sqeaks? What could be wrong?


Hi Anthony:
If it's in contact with the belt, and rotating, it has to have a bearing or bushing. You did not mention the water pump. Give it a once over. Remove or slack off the belt and see if there is any play or wobble in the water pump. It never hurts to spray some belt conditioner (also called belt dressing) on the belts. If coolant has been spilled on the belts they will squeal in a not nice way.

How do you let the tenion off the pulley


undo the nut of the shaft that the pulley is on There should be a long bolt behind the pulley assemble the you can turn and it pulls/pushes the pulley shaft to loosen /tighten the belt. Some have a small gear that you can turn which does the same thing. Just loosen the shaft nut first and make sure you re-tension when finished.

Hoe to replace serpentine belt on 1998 mazda protage


there is a tensioner around the engine (it looks like an idler pulley) there will be a 13-15mm bolt that moves the tensioner to the 'slack' position, while you are holding that tenioner slack you need to remove the belt from one of the pulleys ( usually the highet pulley is the easiest) then just reverse the order of the procedure to install the new one.

*** PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO HOW THE BELT IS ROUTED***

Sqeaking from the accessory belt drive. could be a bearing in one of the pulleys, the pump, the alt or the belt tension has weakened. It occurs off and on, usually just off idle but sometimes at idle. Is...


common cause is the belt gets worn and stretched, yes the tensioner is suppose to keep its tension but also the tensioner gets weak and all it takes is a couple slips of the belt to harden and you will get a squeal. Spray WD 40 on tensioner, idler pulleys, alternator behind pulley, not on belt or where belt rides on pulleys but at all bearing locations. Did squeal stop? If not replace belt. Usually a chevy water pump will leak, or grind not sqeak unless there is rusty non lubricated so called coolant in it which 1974 maybe but 2007 na im sure you didn't neglect this baby. You can also inspect the belt carefully, possibly buy a can of belt dressing and spray belt but do make sure you use a ratchet and check your belt tensioner for smooth non sticky tension pressure.

I HAVE A SQEAKING NOISE COMING FROM THE PULLEY UNDER THE ALTERNATOR IN MY 1999 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX 3.8L


This could be the belt slipping or a bearing going/gone in your alternator, air conditioner, steering pump, idler pulley or water pump.

Timing belt instalation points


Pretty simple fix... just did mine today. Before you start, do 2 things. 1. Remove the negative battery terminal for safety. 2. Make sure that you have a diagram available for the proper belt routing for your engine. If not, draw it up on a piece of paper.

Use a wrench or rachet / socket to rotate the tensioner pulley clockwise until you can slip the old belt off. Snake the old belt around the fan and discard it.

Check all pulleys for embedded gunk and clean as necessary. While not absolutely necessary, I recommend changing both the idler and tensioner pulleys- especially if you're changing the belt due to chirping or sqeaking. Autozone has the belt, tensioner pulley assembly and idler pulley for ~$110.

If changing the pulleys, just remove the single bolt that retains each pulley and replace the old ones w/ new.

Reverse the procedure for belt removal when installing the new one. Be very mindful of the routing and make sure that the belt is seated completely in the correct grooves of each pulley.

Put the negative battery cable back on and bump the starter a few times to be sure that the belt is tracking properly. Start it up and take pride in a job well done. Took me approximately 1 hour including pulley cleaning.

Good luck- by the way, my local Ford dealer wanted $360 to do this job.
