Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

A kitten climbed up into the engine. When we started the engine it got caught in the belt. The belt was shredded as well as the kitten. We got a new belt but not sure how it fits on all the pulleys. Do you have a diagram?

From what i know you need a special tool for the tension arm but.
1. already done by the kitten (verify the belt needs replacement)
2. Inspect the accessory drive belt and belt tensioner assembly.
If there is any roughness to either of the belt tensioner assembly bearings or any sign
of damage, scoring, or glazing on the accessory drive belt, replace BOTH the belt
tensioner assembly and the accessory drive belt.
3. Remove the drive belt.

cover RH.
B. Remove the drive belt.
a. Turn the drive belt tensioner
clockwise to relieve tension on
the belt, and then remove
the belt.
b. Carefully return the tensioner
to the unloaded position.
NOTE:
􀀀 When retracting the tensioner, turn it
clockwise SLOWLY in 3 seconds or
more. Do NOT apply force rapidly.
􀀀 After the tensioner is retracted all
the way, do NOT apply more force
than is necessary.

cover RH.
B. Remove the wire
harness protector.

I have a kitten that has climbed into the dash board. How does my husband remove the dash? (That's what I get for trying to be a good person..LOL)


Which side is the kitten on, if it's on the passenger side you can remove just the glove box to gain access, if it's on the drivers side you can remove the bottom kicker panel to gain access from the bottom of the dash so you don't have to remove the whole dash. If the kitten made it's way behind the radio, you can remove just the trim around the radio and then remove the radio to gain access behind the radio.
Thank you for using fixya and please keep being a good person LOL.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...


take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

Having trouble starting car. The battery is fine since lights still come on. Found a shredded belt. Not sure if it's the alternator belt. Appreciate the help. Marcia


Don't drive the car until you make sure the belt that is shredded is not the water pump belt. YOU could drive but the engine will overheat and have a more costly problem. Two things, if the lights are working but the car is not starting. It could be that the terminals are dirty on the battery AND if the belt that is shredded is the Alternator belt, the battery could be just down on charge. Do to things (1) Find out which belt needs to be replaced and have it replaced. (2) Charge the battery, maybe a friend has a charger, if so have them trickle charge the batter for at least 12 hrs. Less there's some other problem that should take care of it.
