Question about 2006 Toyota Sienna
Posted on Aug 26, 2010
This detailed step by step solution will be of great assistance to put you through;
STEP 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.(This is a safety measure)
STEP 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 in order to be on the safe side.
STEP 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.
STEP 4. Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt,afterwards, remove the belt.
STEP 5. Compare the old serpentine belt with the new replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside.Ensure that the replacement belt is in the right part.
STEP 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.
STEP 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to fall back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
STEP 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Have a great time and good luck.
