    My belt was making some weird squeaking noises... don't wait long, fix it right away. If the bearings sieze, you have no water pump, steering and it WILL overheat quickly.
    I just did my upper Idler pulley and tensioner on my 2.0 2001 Tracker. 20 minutes. SAVE SOME MONEY. The bearings in both are replaceable. Press in and out in 5 minutes !! Idler bearing is a BCA # 2033FF cost me $10.24 , tensioner pulley bearing is a Nachi # 60052NSE cost me $ 14.62 !

Hello i can assist you in your job first thing would to disconnect your batter terminals next have a serpentine belt tension er tool ready to release the tension or your belt.If you haven't a serpentine belt tool these can be purchased at local =auto part supplies.Once you have released the tension on the belt turning the tool counter clock wise you will need to care fully lift the belt off the pulley try to avoid removing the belt from all pulleys if possible.Now you can apply proper size socket the the idler pulley it is a small round idle with a bolt in the center just like the one you have in your hand to replace.Now turn ratchet wrench counter clock wise and remove the bolt and idle.Now install your new idler make sure your serpentine belt is exactly going on the pulley you lifted it off from you have a diagram on your engine compartment inner hood area for diagram if you should need it.Once you have seated your fan belt back on release the tension clockwise now reconnect your battery terminals and start engine be sure all equipment and tools are removed and belt in turning properly on the pulleys and the job is complete.

The belt typically won't squeal when too tight, it will just put more wear and tear on the components. I would recommend removing the belt, and cleaning the pulley with brake parts cleaner and a tooth brush. There is probably some sort of residue on the pulley, which is allowing the belt to slip when the a/c clutch engages. If this doesn't help, make sure all of your pulleys are aligned. Use a long straight edge to check their alignment with each other. If they aren't close to perfectly straight, it will cause the belt to ride funny and squeal when the a/c clutch engages.

It might be best to remove the power steering pump and bracket, then pry engine away from passenger side. That should give you enough room.

How do you relace an alternator belt on 1998 chevy tracker?


A year is not a good sign. The belt should not have come off in that span of time. I would make sure you do not have a worn out idler or tensioner pulley bearing before installing your new belt or reinstalling the original if it is not worn or damaged.

You will find one or two small pulleys involved with drive belt. One of the smaller pulleys will be an "idler" pulley and simply redirects the belt to a different accessory. The other small pulley is considered a "tensioner" pulley, it is spring loaded and keeps the correct tension on the accessory belt.
The tensioner pulley will have a "squared" hole in the bracket or a bolt through the center of the pulley. In either case you will use a wrench to pry the tensioner pulley arm in the direction that loosens the belt. Once tension is relieved, pull the belt off a pulley and remove the belt. You will reverse the process to install the new belt.
Good luck and let me know.
Regards,

Need to replace serpentine belt on 2001 tracker cannot find adjustments to loosen belt. thanks .


You should see a spring loaded tensioner,usually right by the pulley you will see a square hole to insert a rachet,pull back and remove the belt.it might be helpful to have a friend to hold the rachet with the tension off the belt.Be careful if the rachet slips, there is a lot of tension on the spring and you could get hurt,watch your hands,don't put fingers between belt and pulleys
