Put the belt onto all groved pulleys first, then un-tension the tensioner/idler pulley and slide the belt onto it (the tensioner/idler pulley should be smooth with no lip for the belt to go over).

My belt on a 1989 suburban is scretching. how do i tighten it?


The drive belt has an automatic tensioner pulley. It will be a pulley on it's own attached to an arm. It'll be the top left pulley under the drive belt if there are only 2 at the top, or it'll be on the top righton top of the drive belt if there are 3 or 4 pulleys across the top.

Check to make sure it is moving freely. You can do this by attaching a wrench to it and moving it down if it is under the belt, or up if it is ontop of the belt. It should require a bit of force. If it doesn't move or is easy to move then it needs to be replaced. If it feels like it's moving freely and the spring seems strong then your belt is stretched past it's limit and needs to be replaced.

Alternatively it may be screeching due to a pulley seizing up. Check to make sure things like the idler pulleys or the A/C and Alternator pulleys move freely.

Want to fit fan belt cant find the proper way


You have to find the tension pully. using a 3/8 socket wrench. not the socke but the actual wrench. place the square end of the wrench into the notch on the pully and either push or pull (depends on the v-belt system) and it should move. place your v-belt around the pully's according to the diagram under your hood leaving your tension pully to be the last one the belt goes on. Move that tension pully as mentioned above and place it the belt on the pully. The diagram under the hood should also show you where that tension pully is located.

Changing Serpentine Belt on '01 Impala LS (3.8L)


Can u turn the nut in the opposite direction that u have been trying? U need a lot of leverage to get enough tension off to remove the belt. If u have enough room, add a pipe to the end of your wrench, u will need a lot of room to move the tensioner enough. U might have better luck buying the wrench made for that purpose at a parts store. I think I paid about 25 a couple years ago, I couldn't fit a regular socket and wrench on the tensioner, it was a very tight space.

Serpentine belt for 1998 mercury tracer


Hey there MSM,
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator. The routing diagram is on one of the radiator supports.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
