The tensioner pulley is the only pulley on the front of the engine that will move, usually mounted on a short arm that is spring loaded. Hope this helps.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    How to Replace a Power Steering Belt


    This is how to replace the power steering belt in 1995 ford explorer.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative post on the battery. Loosen the retaining bolt with a socket and ratchet, then remove the cable end from the terminal. Isolate the cable end from the battery to prevent accidental starting of the engine while you are working.
    2. Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine and attach a socket and ratchet to the mounting bolt in the center of the pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt. Remove the belt from the pulleys while holding the tensioner away from the belt. Discard the old belt. Release the tensioner, slowly rotating it to the home position.
    3. Install the new serpentine belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and slide the new belt onto the tensioner pulley. Slowly rotate the tensioner counterclockwise, allowing it to tighten the belt.
    4. Remove the socket and ratchet from the tensioner pulley. Install the negative battery cable on to the negative terminal of the battery. Tighten the retaining bolt with a socket and ratchet.
    5. Start the engine, verifying that the belt is mounted correctly and running true over the pulleys.

    After replacing old tension bar I cannot get the serpentine belt to go over the tension pulley!!


    This happens on some systems. I assume that your belt is routed correctly, try making the final belt pulley something other than the tensioner pulley. Sometimes the water pump, sometimes some other pulley....

    How do I install the serpentine belt on a 2003 Ford expedition?


    Hello,Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine.The tensioner is what keeps tension on the belt and keeps the belt from coming off.The tensioner will have a bolt head in the middle of it that a 15mm socket will fit
    STEP 2:Look on the hood base where the hood lock attaches to the base and see if there is a belt diagram.This diagram will give you the exact instruction for properly routing the belt across the pulleys.If there is no diagram there,you will need to write down the exact routing of the belt on the pulleys on a notepad
    STEP 3:Put the 15mm socket onto the ratchet and put the ratchet onto the bolt head on the belt tensioner.
    STEP 4:Turn the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt and remove the belt from all of the pulleys
    STEPS 5:Remove the new serpentine belt the same way that the old one came off by following the belt routing diagram instruction.Do not put the belt across the tensioner until last.Keep in mind that the belt will only go on one way and be right.
    STEP 6:Put the ratchet with the 15mm socket back on the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner clockwise to give you enough room to slide the new belt across the belt tensioner pulley.Slide the belt onto the belt tensioner pulley and release the belt tensioner.Look over the belt and double check to make sure that the belt is running across all of the
    pulleys correctly
    STEP 7:Crank the car and inspect that the belt is secure and is staying in the grooves on all of the pulleys.

    Thanks

    Serpentine belt broke on 87 ford econo van


    ps...you do not have to Post another Question....just Add a Comment to this question.

    "HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
    Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    1. Find the Tensioner(s).
    2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
    3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
    4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

    Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
    b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
    c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley and Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
    d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
    e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
