SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

there is usually a tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. With the correct size wrench you would turn the pulley either cw or ccw (in turning the bolt in the middle of the pulley it will not loosen the bolt but actually relieve spring tension)to release tension on the belt and then remove the belt. be sure to note how it is routed around all the pulleys so it goes back on correctly. keep in mind i don't know what your car looks like but i have never seen a different procedure. i always buy a chiltons manual when i get a car so i have a handy referance for such jobs

SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt

You sent the additional question in the Solution portion of the other original posting...I just happened to stumble upon it when you rated me a "2" out of "4" on the original Posting/Question. A "2" is not good for my 94% Rating!
As far as step-by-step:
The Tensioner Pulleys have two (2) types:
1. If it has an Adjustment Nut located near it: Loosen (counterclockwise) the nut. You will see the Pulley and Belt moving, loosening the belt.
2. The other type of Tensioner is an Automatic Tensioner. The standard rule with these is to move the Tensioner Pulley (it has a strong spring keeping it in place) in the direction of:
(a) Away from the Belt (contact with the Pulley portion).
(b) Towards the open area of the Pulley = towards the direction where the Belt is not iin contact with the Pulley.

Again: Let me know if this helped you, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com! And please don't use a "2". And yes you may change your original Rating from 2 to 4 if you wish....

SOURCE: How do change the serpentine belt on a 2005 Kia

There is a tensioner pulley that has a nut in the middle of it, loosen that nut and there is a tensioner bolt that when you loosen it, it slides the pulley away from the belt to replace it.

SOURCE: How is the best way to replace a serpentine belt

First remove the engine plastic cover by removing the bolts that hold in. Then loosen the nuts at the front of the AC Belt and Power Steering Belt. Now use a Socket set and loosen these two belts by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise.

You have to remove the first two belts (AC & Power Steering) before reaching the Serpentine Belt.

Now loosen the nut on the front of the lowest pulley before loosening the serpentine belt.

To loosen the serpentine belt, you could either remove the metal skid plate at the bottom of the engine by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise or reach down from the top and loosen it with the socket set ( quick & easiest)

At what mileage should the timing belt on my kia sorento 2005 be changed?


the factory calls for every 60,000 miles, do not go over this mileage, if the belt breaks the valves will hit the pistions and u have a huge and expensive repair.
