What would cause my serpentine belt to not fit on my buick lesabre custom 2001


Those belts have a tensioner on them. IF the belt is too big then the tensioner might not be retracted. It might be missing. There are idler pulleys too. If you have high miles on the this car, the pulley or the tensioner might be worn. The tensioner also has to be pulled back to have the belt put on.

Kia sedona, broke the bolt to the serpentine tensioner pulley, now what


Asuming you broke it off in a blind hole, if you have a wire feed center a nut over the remaning stud & weld if on let cool put penetrating oil on it & work it gently back & forth even if its below the surface slightly on aluminum or cast the weld will not bond to the surface just the bolt you may need to do this process several times then go to dealler for new bolt. Note this works extremly well on broken ex. manifold bolts, we havent drilled in years hope this helps Danny

Replaced engine belt on 1999 saab 9.5 old belt broke thought their would an adjustable that i could move to get new belt on then tighten it back up


These should have a belt tensioner pulley........It is designed to be pushed up or down to slide the belt over the pulley that is mounted to the tensioner.....Normally the tensioner will have a square slot in it to put a 3/8 or a 1/2 in ratchet head into it and move it up or down.....Some tensioners are designed to put a socket or wrench on the pully bolt head..then push tensioner in tightening position to flex tensioner and slide belt over pulley.....It has to be one or the other......Just look very closely at the pulleys...Some tensioners have an arrow on the side of it showing which direction to push it to re-install the belt....It is mounted sperately by itself....It is called Serpentine Belt Tensioner .......................................It is self adjusted...It is flexed up and down very fast while it is running and if it ever gets loose from age you just replace it.......There is no nut and bolt adjustment for a serpentine belt..................Hope this helps.....................................Metalpoet

I had 2003 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder in for


While it is a possibility, having the tensioner lose tension seems more probable that it locking up as the mechanics have stated. You seem to know what you are talking about, so why not try throwing a wrench on it and turning it towards the serpentine belt? Then you can see for yourself if it has seized or not. It is the small pulley that doesn't seem to power anything like your AC compressor, alternator, fan, crank, powr streering. match a wrench to the size of the bolt and turn it, if it moves take the belt off (noting how it goes) and put the new one on saving you 280 dollars.

Sounds like someone rigged this when replacing the belt previously. The 'old school' way would be to unbolt the compressor to slide on the belt.

Serpentine belt replacement


yes you will need to look for the pully that acts as a tensioner it should be identified on your rad support or underside of your hood where you will have a diagram that shows your routing of the s belt it will show you witch pulley the belt goes around and so on it should also identify the tensioner you need to use a big prybar or thwere may be a spot on thhe tensioner to fit a half inch rachet or a johnson bar relieve the tension and remove the old belt and pay close attention as to how the belt comes off and make sure you put it back the same way. hope this helps..
