I just replaced my serpentine belt 1 day ago and it broke again. The repair shop said that all pulleys worked when they replaced it. So what else could it possibly be?


What does the break look like. What i mean is, the way the new belt broke will help determine what is wrong with it. My educated guess will be that the serpentine belt tensioner is siezed. this is what applies pressure to the pulley.
have a look at that first.

My serpentine belt broke and now i dont know how to put a new one back on


buy a new serpentine belt and refer to the diagram on the box. it will show you how to route the belt. also, there is a belt tensioner. it can be pulled back with a large prybar so you can slip the belt on the pulley.

Engine cooling belt broke. lookin for tips on


Here is a link to a set of videos about how to replace your serpentine belt. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-change-a-serpentine-belt-on-your-car-39904/

It's important to know the routing of the new belt when you replace it. There should be a routing diagram in the engine compartment near the top of the radiator. If you don't see one, you can use this diagram as a guide...

My serpentine belt broke while driving, I replaced the belt but the belt drifts or slips a little at the bottom large pulley, so I changed the power steering pulley since it seemed to have some play in it...


you could adjust your tensioner to fix it, but most likely your power steering pumps pulley is not completely parallel with the the crank pulley

I need a diagram of a 2004 suzuki forenza Serpentine Belt


That's easy, there are some pulleys with ridges to grip the underside of the belt, and some are smooth for the top side of the belt.
I can only assume your belt broke and fell off so you couldn't see how it was on prior. But either way you have limited length, and the last place you would be routing the belt is the tensioner, which you should have located first, so you can have a wrench handy to fit it.

Here's what you have:
Top left= alternator (small ridged)
top right = power steering (large ridged)
Bottom right = AC compressor (large ridged)
Bottom middle = Crank Pulley (large ridged)
In middle next to Power steering = Tensioner (small shiny smooth)

Remove the air cleaner housing (two bolts)
Start on left top side and loop belt (clockwise) across the alternator to the power steering down to AC (also clockwise from right to left) then over to crank pulley (from bottom clockwise around to top of pulley) to tensioner (smooth, belt is backwards on it) which will go back up to the alternator.

At the top middle there should be a sensor protruding from the timing cover that the belt passes under as it connects between the alternator and the power steering. And you won't easily be able to fit anything besides a box-end wrench on the tensioner, so you may need some kind of extension on the wrench to get good torque on it without hurting yourself.

Serpentine belt broke and i think the water pump is bad


The battery light and brake light are on because the belt isn't turning the alternator. The house with columns means it is low on antifreeze. You need to put the belt back on an check for antifreeze leaks. I would say you waterpump likely locked up and roasted the belt and that is where the antifreeze is leaking also.
