Hi maroon,

  • 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. Double check your routing.
  • The tensioner pulley is 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

How to change serpentine belt on rav4 2004 model


You'll need to buy a tensioner release tool to do the job. Any auto parts store sells them. Use the tool to release the tension by moving the pulley enough to get the belt off . Route the new belt around all the pulleys on the engine according to the diagram sticker under the hood.once you're ready to put tension on the new belt, move the pulley again and put the belt under the pulley. Release the tool and you're done.
