A loose idler pulley threw the surpentine belt off - feels like bearings inside the pulley are shot.


will try to help. if the pulley has wobble,it's bad and in need of replacement. not a hard repair to preform. turn the bolt on the idler pulley thats bad counter clockwise,remove the bolt and pulley. replace with new pulley. you'll need to follow the belt routing on the hood of your car[a small decal that shows how to replace your serpentine belt] to replace the belt when you've replaced that pulley. if you do not have a diagram of your belt routing, make sure to ask where ever you purchase the idler pulley from. if not then post your question here and we'll be happy to help! i also suggest that while you're there replacing that pulley, you check all the other pulleys for wobble,just in case theres another problem you don't yet see. hope this helps and if you need further assistance please don't hesitate to post your question!thank you for choosing fixya.com

Removed the old fan belt. But don't know hos to


LOOP THE BELT UNDER THE CRANK PULLEY, START WITH THE RIGHT HAND AND GO AROUND THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE WATER PUMP, DOWN TO THE POWER STEERING PUMP, OVER THE A/C COMP, UNDER THE IDLER PULLEY, OVER THE ALTERNATOR, AND THEN THE TENSIONER.

ITS EASIEST TO SLIDE THE BELT UNDER THE IDLER LAST AND RELEASE THE TENSIONER.

1996 Grand AM 3.1L serpentine belt replacement


Try this procedure.
0900823d8004ed44.jpg


To replace a worn belt, locate the idler or generator pulley.

0900823d8004ed45.jpg


Loosen the hold-down fastener for the idler or generator pulley.

0900823d8004ed46.jpg


Pry the idler or generator pulley inward to release the belt tension and remove the belt.

0900823d8004ed47.jpg


Match the old belt up for size with the new replacement belt.

0900823d8004ed48.jpg


Observe the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment.

0900823d8004ed49.jpg


Install the new belt over each of the drive pulleys. Often the manufacturer recommends a sequence for feeding the belt around the pulleys.

Pry out the idler or generator pulley to put tension on the belt.

Install the belt squarely in the grooves of each pulley.

0900823d8004ed75.jpg


Before adjusting belt tension, check for proper pulley alignment. This is especially critical with serpentine belts. Measure the belt deflection in its longest span. If a belt tension gauge is available, use it and compare the tension to specifications.
If a belt is too tight, wear to bearings for the water pump, alternator, and engine crankshaft can result.
Some late-model Chrysler engines require a torque reading to be taken when tension is applied to the generator drive belt. This is especially important on the longer, multiribbed V-belts.

0900823d8004ed76.jpg


Pry the idler or generator pulley to adjust the belt to specifications.

0900823d8004ed77.jpg


Tighten the idler or generator pulley fastener.

0900823d8004ed78.jpg


Start the engine and check the belt for proper operation.

Any more questions please ask. Good luck.

1996 buick regal fan belt slipped off


The idler pulley is spring loaded. With the correct size socket and ratchet and a strong arm just pivot it away momentarily from the belt enough to pull the belt loose. You don't actually remove the pulley. Just like taking a dead mouse out of the old spring traps. If you are getting some pulley noise, you can replace the pulley only (one bolt)
pour water on the pulley to see if noise changes, its an easy way to track down belt, pulley noises.
