    Then, check this procedure... to change the serpentine/accesory belt. I thought i'd share a
    little info while I was at it. THis is for an 2003 Toyota Camry-Solara
    LE 2AZ-FE. This instructions apply to most 2AZ-FE FWD cars, including
    gen 5/5.5 Camry, gen 6 Camry, and Scion tC. I'm not sure about the 2AZ-FE
    Highlander and RAV4.

    Items needed

    • safety goggles

    • 2AZ-FE serpentine belt (i chose goodyear gatorback #4070763 which is around $29.99).

    • racheting socket wrench (the longer, the more leverage, the better).

    • breaker bar (optional).

    • 19mm socket (for your wrench).

    • mechanic/working gloves (optional for extra grip).

    • beverage of your own choice (keep out of engine bay of course

    Step 1 - Diagram

    go to page 5 of the camry manual for the 5th gen and print out that page, or you can just save this portion to your computer and print it out:

    Step 2 - Taking out the old serpentine belt

    first off, take a good look at the belt and memorize the belt routing
    and how all the smooth pulleys are in contact with the smooth side of
    the belt, and all the ribbed pulleys are in contact with the ribbed side
    of the belt. there are two ways to take off the belt; you can either
    loosen the tensioner and simply slip off the belt off the alternator
    pulley (the most accesible pulley imo), or you can loosen the tensioner
    and just cut the belt, and take the risk of the belt slapping you in the
    face pretty hard due cuz you wrongfully thought you gave all the slack
    it could. Use the 19mm socket wrench on the indicated bolt in the diagram and
    pull it clockwise towards the front of the car. this requires a bit of
    effort- it may seem like it's stuck, but the hydraulic tensioner is
    really just that hard to budge *this is where the long wrench is
    desired*. you'll be able to see the belt give slack when you give it
    enough leverege- that's when you simply yank off the belt off the
    alternator pulley or whatever pulley you want. pretty straightforward.


    I used an 18" breaker bar on the tensioner. I think what you have to remember is that the tensioner is hydraulic,
    not a spring. It doesn't move very fast since you are working against
    hydraulic pressure. Slow steady pressure will be enough. At least for

    * good note on the tensioner and what to expect.

    For the Drive bolt, was easy to put it back?

    * With the diagram, the drive bolt is supposed to be removed. i had
    no trouble or setbacks by not removing the drive bolt, therefore i did
    not include the removal/re-install of the drive bolt in my instructions.
    any pulley removal is an extra step that's not needed in my opinion.

    where are the drive belt tensioner
    and the drive bolt in the picture? is the tensioner you are talking
    about just below the belt?

    * The drive belt tensioner is composed of a pulley, swing arm, and
    hydrualic shock to provide pressure on the belt. the location of the
    "drive bolt" is shown below, along with the actual swing arm (tensioner
    assembly) and the bolt you're supposed to turn (highlighted green) in
    order to compress the tensioner

    Step 3 - Pre-Install check
    With the belt off, this is a good time to check that the alternator,
    water pump, and a/c compressor pulley are able to rotate freely (don't
    rotate too much- just check). they also shouldn't be loose or be able to

    Step 4 - Installing the new belt
    With the old belt off, you pretty much reverse step 2, starting with
    putting the belt around all the pulleys (according to diagram) but the
    alternator pulley or tensioner pulley. make sure the belt is centered on
    all the pulleys (except the pulley yet to be wrapped around of course),
    especially the sections where it's rib-to-rib. place the socket wrench
    back on that 19mm bolt and pull clockwise towards the front of the car
    once again to release the tension. don't use anything to pry the belt on
    any pulley, because you may bend one of the pulleys or whatnot. with
    enough slack, you can put the belt back on.

    It really helps to have two people
    doing this because of the amount of force required to move the
    tensioner. You also omitted a lot of steps such as removing the front
    passenger wheel, wheel well liner, engine mount, and engine cover.

    * Another person can help by compressing the tensioner, while the
    installer is using two hands to position the belt. on the other hand, i
    managed to do it by myself in under 10 minutes, and i don't consider
    myself an extremely strong person. but another person significantly can
    help no doubt.

    as for removing the front passenger wheel, and wheel well liner, i don't
    think that's necessary due to the ample amount of space between the
    wheel well and belt/pulley system. removal of the engine mount and
    engine cover is definitely not necessary because it is not hindering
    access to the whole belt/pulley system.

    Step 5 - Final check
    Check that the belt is on correctly. store all tools. consume beverage of choice. Recycle.

    Hope help to solve it.

I dont have a diagram to run serpentine belt to a toyota camry 03


Replacing Serpentine belt on a Toyota camry 2003—

Step 1--Examine the belt placement of your Toyota Camry fan belt so that you will remember how to put it back once you have removed it. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for further information. Locate the pivot bolt on the front passenger side of the engine. Loosen the pivot bolt with a socket wrench.

Step 2--Loosen the adjustment locking bolt that is just below the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench, and then loosen the tensioner pulley to allow the belt to move free.

Step 3--Check the belt for any signs of cracking or irregular wear, so you can fix any problems that may exist with the pulleys. Remove the fan belt from the pulleys on the engine and take it out of the engine compartment.

Step 4--Wrap the new fan belt around each of the pulleys the same way it came out. When you have the belt in place, tighten the tensioner pulley with a socket wrench.

Step 5--Tighten the adjustment locking bolt and the pivot bolt with a socket wrench, and then look over the engine to check that everything is back in place.

Step 6--Turn the vehicle engine on and watch it for a few minutes to verify that everything is operating properly, then turn the engine off.
