Belt routing diagram


Hi Robert:
The make and model might help one of us to google it and find an answer, but if you have the correct belt, replacement is a straightforward matter.
- Vee belts fit in the vee and are tightened by loosening the alternator bolts and moving the alternator.
- Serpentine belts have the inside (ridges) fit into the drive and driven pulleys, and the outside fits against idler pulleys and the tension pulley. The easiest way to install that I have found is to use a 3/8 tortion bar with a "cheater" extension on the handle. (mine is a piece of square aluminum tubing about 2 ft long. The 3/8 square drive fits in a hole in the face of the pulley carrier. Move the tensioner pulley so that it is in the fully slack position, and while holding it there, put the serpentine belt in place. Then let the tensioner release to tighten up the belt.

How to change serpentine belt on 2006 buick lacrosse


Start by drawing a diagram of the belt routing. Serpentine belts normaly have 1 spring loaded tensioner (1 pully will have a nut or 3/8 or 1/2 inch drive hole) That will be the tensioner. get spanner or ratchet to fit & lever the tensioner away from the belt. Remove belt. fit new belt to most pullys except the easiest to get to, lever the tenioner back & fit the belt to the last pully, Check the belt is on all pullys properly & your done

How to fit strechy fan belt on ford focus 2006 model


It depends on what engine it has. On the 1.4/1.6 petrol engines a universal stretch belt tool will do it, the problem comes if it's got a separate belt for aircon as the crankshaft pulley has two sets of v grooves and it's difficult to force the larger inner belt over the crankshaft pulley as it keeps slipping off the water pump drive.
There is a special tool that fits to the water pump pulley that makes fitting easy but it is possible to do it without it by using a lever between the chassis rail and the water pump to stop the belt coming off the side radius of the pulley. The aircon belt is easy using the universal fitting tool. It is possible to use brute force with screwdrivers but will normally damage the belts and a cheap fitting tool can be brought to actually save money and aggro !

The drive belt came of off the pulleys and it is hard to stear the weel


It is virtually impossible to steer a vehicle which has hydraulic steering assistance, when the drive belt is removed. Unless one has arms like Superman!

Unfortunately, as that is your position, I am afraid that you will have to have a replacement drive belt fitted to enable power assistance to the steering to be restored. It might be of great benefit for you to ascertain why the drive belt came off the drive pulley, before having the replacement belt fitted. if there is a problem with the pulleys, it would be wise to have it rectified before fittting a replacement belt.

I need to replace my serpateen belt how do i do that?


This label shows the accessory belt routing on a Lumina with a 3.1L engine



c17hydro_56.gif

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt shield.
  3. Fit a 3/8 inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner off of the drive belt. When the tension on the belt is removed, slide the drive belt from the pulleys.

To install:

  1. Taking care to follow the proper routing of the belt, slip the belt onto the pulleys. As a help, note that the water pump pulley is usually driven from the back (smooth side) of the belt.
  2. Fit a 3/8 -inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner and, with the belt in place, gently release the tensioner.
  3. Verify that the belt is correctly routed and aligned in the proper grooves of the accessory drive belt pulleys. Inspect the drive belt length scale on the drive belt tensioner for the proper indicated length. If the drive belt length scale does not indicate the proper installed length, the belt may be incorrect, incorrectly installed, worn out or the tensioner may be defective.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the vehicle and verify correct operation.

How do I loosen the tensioner to replace the serpentine belt on a 2004 Honda Accord?


First, note how the drive belt is routed, then use a wrench on the tensioner pulley center bolt and turn the tensioner clockwise (four cylinder engine) or counterclockwise (six cylinder engine) to release the drive belt tension. Remove the drive belt from the tensioner and relax the tensioner. Fit the new belt on the other pulleys, then turn the tensioner again and fit the new belt over the tensioner.

The picture is from a different model, but it is similar to what you are working with.
