If this has occurred more than once the tensioner may be getting weak
look -VERY CARFULLY, WITH PROTECTIVE GEAR--
at the belt when engine is running see if any of the pulleys are wobbling
If the belt is already off --with the engine off- reach down and try to move the pulleys if one has play. that may be the culprit

How to remove serpintine belt


Release the belt tensioner and the belt will virtually fall off the pulleys. Make a sketch of the route of the belt before you do that as it can become confusing when you try refit the new belt.

My serpintine belt keep coming off i replaced pulley and tensione


Typically a belt will come off if all the pulleys are not perfectly aligned.
If you recently replaced a power steering pump and the pulley was not properly seated all the way down where the pulley front is flush with the metal shaft from the pump then you will shred the belts and they will come off. If you ONLY swapped the tensioner and idler pulley you may have installed the tensioner so it isn't parallel to the other pulleys but that would be very rare because it would have been difficult to get the belt on if it was not properly installed. There also could be a damaged plastic pulley that could be "cutting" into the belt which would also cause the belt to slip off.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle - the battery light came on this morning will driving to work (5 minute drive) and by the the time I got to work, the power steering wasn't working. Any ideas?


Sounds like the serpintine belt that turns your power steering pump has broken or came off of the pulley.

You should see the problem when you open the hood.

Replace serpintine belt


You shouldn't need to most of the time all you need is a 15mm wrench. Use it by turning the spring tightener inward toward the center of the motor than the belt should come off. Also when you take it off make sure you know how the belt goes around the pulleys so everything will work together like normal. when putting the belt on you should use the wrench to turn the tightener back inward and slip the belt back on and make sure it looks just like the old one when its on.
