This is for anybody who has has trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

On my car, the water pump went out, the axle got cocked sideways, and the serpentine belt came off a got chewed up.

Other than something like that, I think it would have to be the tensioner not doing it's job.

Serpentine belt keeps breaking


whichever pulley it is sliding off of is not straight. check the alignment of ALL the pulleys and make sure there is no play in them. They should all be solid with no wobble. My guess would be a bearing is bad allowing play in the pulley which lets the belt "walk" to the edge.

Honda 2001 crv bad timming belt didnt break but lost few teeth skip timming is it worth saving please help!


Well it is an interference engine which means if the belt breaks the pistons could damage the valves.
If it only jumped a couple of teeth it may not have damaged anything.
I would put a new belt on and check compression.

How serious is a cracked timing belt case in a '03 Camry


are you talking timing belt or serpentine belt.
If a timing belt breaks you can destroy your engine
If a serpentine breaks you will overheat, the charging system will stop charging and the power steering system will stop working.

Either way you will end up stranded

Is the serpentine belt and the timing belt the same thing?


Your serpentine belt and timing belt are not the same thing. If your serpentine belt breaks, you will lose your alternator, your cooling system, air conditioning, and your power steering. In turn, it will leave you stranded in a very short period of time.
