Check the tensioner. They are really common to wear out. If you look at where the belt rides on the tensioner you can usually see a rusted area where the belt use to ride. If the belt is riding really close to the outer edge of the tensioner the tensioner is bad. If the belt still rides on the outer edge of the new tensioner than you will need to change the bracket the tensioner bolts to per a Chrysler TSB for this problem.

Since you didn't post an engine size I couldn't give you specifics but this is the most common cause of the serp belt falling off.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt

How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

Serpentine belt wont go back on. 2009 toyota hiace

If you have let off the adjuster idler pulley then the reason the belt will not fit is the way you are trying to put it on. You will need a diagram but generally the belt goes over flat pulleys on the back of the belt and around pulleys with teeth. It will be the way you are pitting it on

Just put serpentine belt on 1999 ford explorer, now it wont turn

I know this is an obvious answer, but I would guess its not on correctly.
If you don't have a diagram on the hood or the radiator support, let me know. It can be easy to switch pulleys when you change the belt.

The surp belt wont stay on and i have it on rhw eifht way firat iy slips then it comes off help

I can't understand some of the jebberish but I see Serpentine belt won't stay on.
Going on that I would tell you to check the pullies. They will wear out and the bearings will go bad.
When you put the belt on, stand at the side of it and eyeball it. Make sure it and all the pullies are lined up right.
And make sure the belt gets all the way into the grove of the crank pully. That is one of the hardest to see from up top and is usually the one that does not line up correct because its not in place.

Serpentine belt on 96 saturn sc loose what could it be

Hello there:
Normally a serpentine belt will stay on tight untill it begins to strech out after it streches out to far the tention idler pulley cannot keep the belt tension tight any longer thus resulting in a belt either coming off or other things happening So what i would do is to first remove the serpentine belt and ensure that the tention idler pulley is working good make sure it does not just move freely than get a new belt and install now you should be ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Serpentine belt won't fit

yes the cold temps will shrink the belt. But usually there is enough extra to work with......If you are sure the belt is routed properly (and it's easy to mess it up I've been doing this kinda stuff for 25 years and i still get it wrong sometimes) You can try to heat the belt in the house,put it near a heater or soak it in really hot water and try to get it on fast enough that it will stay slightly stretched for long enough. other than that I would inquire at your local part store about a slightly longer one or maybe your belt came in the wrong package and is too short for your vehicle
Good luck and thanks for choosing FIX YA!
