Why cant I get the serpentine belt on to the tensioner pulley?


You either got the wrong parts or you need to move the tensioner just a little bit farther.

Inspection

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. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.


Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Rotate the auto tensioner clockwise to release tension, then remove the drive belt.

To install:
  1. Install drive belt (A). Route the belt over the components in the following order: Crankshaft pulley - A/C pulley - idler pulley - generator pulley - water pump pulley - P/S pump pulley - tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate auto tensioner arm in the counter-clockwise moving auto tensioner pulley bolt with wrench.
  3. After putting belt on auto tensioner pulley, release the auto tensioner pulley slowly.

How simple is it to change a alternator belt on subaru svx?


  1. Removing the Serpentine Belt
    • 1 Park your Subaru on a level surface and open the hood.
    • 2 Disconnect the ground (black) battery cable using a wrench. This will prevent the cooling fan from activating.
    • 3 Locate the serpentine belt routing diagram in your engine compartment and compare it to the actual routing of the installed belt. Make sure the routing on the label matches the actual routing. If they do not match or there is no label, note the actual routing on a piece of paper for later reference.
    • 4 Locate the belt tensioner pulley on your Subaru model. If the tensioner is equipped with a squared hole, use a large breaker bar with a 1/2-inch (13 mm) drive. Otherwise, use a ratchet and socket of the proper size on the tensioner pulley center bolt.
    • 5 Rotate the tensioner pulley away from the belt to release the belt tension.
    • 6 Pull the belt off of one of the pulleys and slowly release the tensioner pulley back into position. Do not let the tensioner pulley snap back or you may damage an internal component.
    • 7 Finish removing the serpentine belt from the rest of the pulleys and the engine compartment.
    Installing the New Serpentine Belt
    • 1 Match the old belt to the new one and make sure they are of the same length and configuration. It is normal for the new belt to be slightly shorter since the old one has been stretched through use.
    • 2 Route the new serpentine belt through all of the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. Use the diagram on the engine compartment or your notes, as a reference, to properly route the belt.
    • 3 Insert the large breaker bar into the square hole or the ratchet and socket into the tensioner pulley center bolt.
    • 4 Rotate the tensioner pulley in the same direction you did to release the belt tension.
    • 5 Slide the serpentine belt onto the tensioner pulley.
    • 6 Release the tensioner pulley back into position.
    • 7 Look at all the pulleys and make sure the serpentine belt is properly seated on each one. Otherwise, release the belt tension and adjust the belt.
    • 8 Connect the ground (black) battery cable using the wrench.

How do Iput a serpentine belt on a 1997 buick lasabre but cant release tension pulley?


  • There is a bolt and spacer on the lower side of the engine mount housing that needs to be removed and the belt will the go right on. If you are pulling the serpentine wrench one way to no avail try pulling it the other way.

How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to find bolt being referred to in other docs


Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

Step 1
  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.

    Cant get the belt on the last pulley


    "HOW TO":
    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 Serpentine Belt 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/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 do I asjust the serpentine belt on a 2005 ford freestar?


    It should not require any adjustment. the right tension is provided by the idler pully. If you want to release the tension for serpentine removal or examination release the tension on the idler pulley in the rear of the motor, spin the nut in the center like you were tightening, and the pressure will be released from the serpentine belt. Reversely, the appropriate tension will be given using the same way when the strap is reinstalled.

    Ho to replace serpentine belt. cant find anything


    There probably won't be any adjustments. Serpentine Belts have be used for 25 or 26 years to my memory ,and have spring loaded tensioners to keep belt tight. So I quess your new to the car world. You release the tension with a long 1/2" Drive ratchet or tool specific for belt replacement. If you need to buy any tools you don't have, your better off leaving it to the pros

    on the tensioner you may have a square hole were you can fit a 3/8 drive ratchet if not then you may have a bolt usually 15mm where you can put a socket and swing the tensioner inorder to release tension most likely the square hole.
