There is a large pulley at the top of the engine called the Camshaft timing pulley.

At the bottom is the Crankshaft timing pulley.

Directly above (an inch or two) and to the right is the Tension Pulley, this has an adjustable allen head wrench adjustment to make the belt tight, or, during removal, to loosen the belt.

Hard to release the tension pully to remove belt on a saab 900s 1995


They are hard to release on all vehicles. You need to pull and release the tension with a wrench attached to the tensioner and slip the belt off the same time removing & installing it on

How do i get the serpentine belt off a 2003 mitsubishi outlander


To get this off, there are two ways:

1. Loosen the alternator, and pull it back until the tension is released.

2. There will be between the various pully's (belt runs around) a tensioner. This is holds the belt tight. With a rachet and socket, pull (push) the tensioner until the belt has slack - pull one part of the belt off (any pully) and release the tensioner back to it's position. (It will go further than when the belt was on - this is normal.

When installing the new belt, if using the tensioner, the belt will need to be placed on the tensioner last - get the belt around all other pully's in it's correct configuration, then, pull back (push) tensioner *(while holding the belt tight with other hand, and ready to be pushed over tensioner) and slide belt into place over it.

Also note: a serpentine belt will only go on one way (grooved side down).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Need to know how to put a serpentine belt on a 1995 302 ford motor


Below the altenator is a tensioning pully, insert a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar in the square hole on the tensioner and release the tension on the surpentine belt and remove the belt. Route the new surpentine belt in place up to the altenator and take the tension off the tensioner and put the belt over the altenator pully. Double check to make sure the belt is riding correctly on all the pullies before starting. Crank the engine over several times before starting to seat the belt. f78f558.jpg

Need to loosen the drivebelt to remove the alternator


Follow the belt around the pully's and look for a pully that is attached to an arm. this is a spring loaded tensioner pully. on this tensioner, you can often fit a 3/8 drive ratchet directly in the back. if so that how you'll be able to release the tension on the belt. otherwise use a socet (if there's enough room) or wrench on the nut in front as if tightening. this will release the tension on the belt.

Hope this helps!

REPLACING BELT ON MY 2000 TAURUS.HAVE BELT OVER ALL PULLYS,BUT LAST ONE ,DON'T KNOW HOW TO PULL BACK PULLY AND GET BELT ON AT THE SAME TIME.


locate the tensioner... you need a "breaker" bar with a 3/8 inch socket head... a rachet would do with a long enough handle. there is a square hole in the tensioner... you need to release pressure on the tensioner long enough to get the belt on.
