There is a special tensioner tool, but a 3/8 inch flex handle usually does the job. Isn't there a 3/8 square hole in the tensioner? May not be enough room to get a ratchet in, but the flex is thinner. The special tool is thinner yet, and I think you can get it at the parts store.

    in this case, you can still use the special tool, but you put a socket on the end that fits the bolt in the tensioner pulley. The special tool has a 3/8 inch square drive on it.

WHERE IS THE SERPENTINE BELT LOCATED ON A 2003 HYUNDAI SONATA


Vehicles Covered: Hyundai Sonata 2002-2004 (2.4L & 2.7L Engines)

In 2003, Hyundai produced two types of Sonata:
Available engines:
4 Cylinders 2.4L VIN "S", MFI DOHC - see Figures 1 and 3.
6 Cylinders 2.7L VIN "H", MFI DOHC - see Figures 2 and 3.

To differentiate between these types of 2003 Hyundai Sonatas, the VIN 8th digit (Engine Type) will either be "S" or "H" as in the table above.

To locate the Engine drive belt, jack up the vehicle & place it onto jack stands, then slide under the car (toss a cardboard mat down first), then, once under the car, remove the (plastic) engine splash shield. Once removed, the drive & accessory belts are easily observed.

The "COMPRESSOR" refers to the A/C compressor, and "GENERATOR" refers to the Alternator.

The Belt Routing on the Left is "With A/C", on the Right is "without A/C"

Inspection - Drivebelt and Accessory Belts

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. Worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced.

Drivebelt Removal & Installation - 2003 Sonata (2.4L and 2.7L engines)

Raise and support the vehicle.
Remove the engine splash shield.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.

To install:

Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
Install the drive belt to the alternator.
Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
Install the engine splash shield.
Lower the vehicle.

Here's the best illustration I can find of the Hyundai 2.4L and 2.7L engines - the drivebelt seems to be located on the passenger side of both of these transversely mounted engines.

How can i fit engine belt of hyundai azera 2009


  • Find the tensioner. The serpentine belt tensioner is what holds the belt in place with the correct tension: it is held to the engine by two bolts. Some describe the Hyundai Sonata tensioner pulley as attached to a teardrop shape, with the bolts holding the structure to the engine.
  • 2 Remove the two bolts near the tensioner with your wrench (bolt size may vary by model). Take off the tensioner and the belt.
  • 3 Use a belt routing diagram or your own sketches to replace the serpentine belt. This is helpful for some models: from the power steering pump, the belt goes to the left of the idler pulley, then over and around the right side of the air conditioner compressor pulley, around the left side of the crank pulley, to the right of the tensioner pulley, and down to the alternator.
  • 4 Replace the tensioner and the new belt together. Mechanics recommend seating the belt on the tensioner before replacing the tensioner onto the engine rather than trying to pry the belt over the pulley.
  • 5 Tighten the two lock bolts that hold the tensioner.
  • 6 Check to see that the belt is seated correctly on all of the pulleys. Run the engine and observe to check for proper installation.

    Cannot get the serpentine belt back on


    "HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
    Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    1. Find the Tensioner(s).
    2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
    3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
    4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

    Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
    b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
    c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley and Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
    d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
    e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

    How to change belt on a 98 pontiac bonniville


    You are asking how to remove the serpentine belt on your 3800 engine ?
    First, I would take several pictures so you know how it goes back on.
    1) * You must have a special idle pulley tool. Take you tool and pry the idle pulley enough to remove belt, dispose of old belt.
    2) Now place the new belt on the pulleys just as you see in the pictures you took or look at the diagram on the radiator support.
    3) Pull the idle pulley again with your tool and put on the belt.
    The idle pulley will put the tension in the belt.
    Please let me know how it went.

    Adjust tension on fan belt


    Your '90 Benz has a belt tensioner that is automatic. You just insert the correct tool to ease the tensioner pulley, (The tool is inserted into the bracket for the tensioner pulley), to the left as you're facing the car. Then slip your serpentine belt off. Reinstallation is a reversal of this process. (I believe it's to the left, don't quote me on that)

    The radiator support in front, should have a diagram of how the serpentine belt goes on the pulleys.

    If your serpentine belt slips, then the belt tensioner pulley assembly is bad, needs to be replaced, or the serpentine belt itself is worn out.
