SOURCE: change power steering belts

My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has several Diagrams for your Belt depending on your engine size and options (AC/No AC etc.) AND whether you have Tensioners OR Locking/Adjusting Bolts/Nuts.
IF APPLICABLE: These point out the direction of rotation for the Tensioner in order to loosen and reinstall the Belt.

IF APPLICABLE: These also point out where the Locking and Adjusting Bolts/Nuts are, to loosen the belt and remove; and reinstall the Belt and .

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating it\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.


Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
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/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

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.Com!

Hi there,

As long as you have the correct belt length and correct tension, everything should work as it should.

When should you change the timing belt


well I think its around 60,000 miles for most vehicles but if it is going bad, i would change it asap! but it verys from vehicle to vehicle. If you have the owners manual for your vehicle, it should detail when the belt should be changed.

A good general rule of thumb is that a timing belt should be changed every 60,000 to 75,000 miles, although some belts are designed to last up to 100,000 miles before requiring a change. Regardless though, it is best not to let a belt go more then 80,000 or so. have a good day !!

Go to daycoproducts.com, they have illustrations for just about every vehicle. When you get to the Home page click on 'cars and light trucks" then on "belts" then on "serpentine belts". Then, go to the right side of the page and click on "belt routing guide" find your car, then get the illustration number. Close out that page and got "belt routing guide illustrations" go to the illustration number for your car.
