  • Remove and isolate the keys from the ignition so the Optima cannot be accidentally started up during the belt replacement repair. Remove the hubcap and then crack the front passenger wheel nuts with a lug wrench. Just loosen the nuts and do not remove them.
  • Open the hood of the optima and then lift the passenger side front quarter with a floor jack. Place jack stand under the front frame rail to safely and securely support the minivan. Leave the floor jack in place, but allow the weight of the minivan to rest on the jack stand. Remove the wheel nuts and then the wheel.
  • Remove the inner wheel well splash shield. Depending on when and where optima was manufactured, a variety of retaining devices may be in place. Some plastic retaining clips can simply be unseated by prying them with a screwdriver; others may have a small plastic screw which will need to be unscrewed a quarter inch to contract the clip and then be pried out. Yet other retaining devices may include metal screws that will need to be unscrewed with a screwdriver.
  • Locate the outer belt tensioner pulley near the alternator--in towards the lower front portion of the engine--revealed by the removal of the splash shield.
  • Loosen the center bolt of the tensioner pulley with a hand wrench. Parallel to the engine, locate the tension adjuster bolt (located on the tensioner pulley) and turn it counterclockwise to release tension on the belt with a hand wrench. Turn it enough to allow wiggling movement of the tensioner pulley. If necessary, loosen the tensioner pulley bolt some more to remove the belt from the pulleys.

      Hi, so what will happen if it idled while the belt is not on?

    • Randy Ohler Aug 30, 2015

      So it wouldnt necessarily blow the compressor?

      The AC would squeal when you turned it on. It also had a leak in the power steering pump that was driven with for over a year. I replaced the power steering pump and everything ran fine for a day or two and then the belt that had a chip in it to start with, shredded. Replaced the belt and immediately the AC compressor went out. When you turned it on it wouldnt blow air but the RPMs were fluxing from 1-2k, What could have caused that? At one point during changing the pump I got distracted bc I was helping someone else on another project and forgot to put the belt on before I started it to bleed the fluid. Could that have fried the compressor? Just curious what it could have been or if it was just going bad to start with bc of the squeal? Any insight would be appreciated.
