Belts and pulley replaced on chrysler LHS, and now it squeals really bad


Try some belt dressing. If that doesn't work, the tensioner pulley may not have been installed properly. Return for warrant service.

I replaced the serpentine belt on my 2002 accura rsx type s it sqeaks and seems loose is there any way to tighten it....tks


The tentioner should keep the belt at the right tention. Are you sure its the belt? I had some squeaking in my 05' RSX and replaced the Tentioner Pulley and the squeaking went away. Maybe this could be the same case. Hope this helps.

I don't Have a manual for this. But in most cases with A serpentine belt the belt trencher is automatic and could be Warren out other then that look see if a pulley bearing could be getting bad .it is also possible you got a defective belt Hope this helps.

2006 Dodge Gr. Caravan. Loud humming noise upon


Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

My 1999 jeep cherokee belt squeals very loud when giving it gas and chirps a little when idleing


If you get the squealing noise even when car is not running, and if noise get louder when you push the accelerator pedal, then it is the serpentine belt.

You may need to put the belt in tension, or to replace it.

Whininhg from power steering pump


That is the power steering belt routed around pump pulley that is slipping . The power steering is located behind the steering column, replacing and re-routing the belt is not an easy repair.

If instead the whining noise comes from under the hood , that is the serpentine belt, that is easier to repair.

Serpentine belt replacement


Hi Paul,

The routing diagram is under the hood.
  • 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 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
