  1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
  2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
  3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
  4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
  5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
  6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
  7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
  8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.

My 2005 sienna does not have a serpentine belt. it has two belt system. what is the easiest way to remove and replace these belts. i have changed belts on motors the face the front but not the side


The alternator belt can be changed from the top, the ps belt is best done from the bottom with the tire removed.
The alternator should have an adjusting bolt and the ps has an adjusting bracket. You loosen the bolts for the alternator and ps pump then use the adjusting bolts to tighten the new belts.

Is the serpentine belt changed when the timing belt is changed?


replace belt. the reason that the sound goes away,when the belt warms up and it does not tend to slip as it does when its cold.ultimately the belt has stretched, and is worn out.

Serpentine belt is getting noisy on my daughters 2005 Toyota Sienna 3.3 liter V-6, and I notice there are two belts that are both very close to the fender. It looks to me like there is not a spring loaded...


You are correct, there is no automatic tensioner for either belt. The linked YouTube video provides good guidance for replacing the belts - more so for the top one. To replace the lower belt, remove the right front tire and the splash shield to get to the lower part of the engine for the power steering belt.
