No you will not have to pull the motor. The pulley is held on with a standard bolt. However, if the pulley bearing is worn, I would suggest replacing the entire tensioner. The spring inside gets weak over time. It won't cost all that much more for the whole tensioner (it includes a new pulley already installed) and it will prevent a problem in the future.

Power steering pulley or tensioner pulley?


Take the tension off the belt and then move each pulley by hand . If the tensioner pulley feels rough or makes a noise, replace it. Same goes for the power steering, although the pump may be noisy without the pulley feeling loose.

You have to remove the whole bracket that the tensioner assembly is attached to then you can get at the bolts that holed the tensioner and pulley together to service. Have fun.

While driving my 2000 Plymouth Neon the front drivers side squeaks, we replaced the serpentine belt and the problem got worse... now every once in awhile the underneath of the car sounds like a cross...


Remove the belt and check all the pullies. the should turn freely and shouldn'have any side to side play. With the exception of the power steering pump, it will pull out alittle this is normal. Also check the tensioner, this should move back and forth smoothly and have the same tension all the way. Some to look at before you remove the belt is the alignment of the belt and pullies. They should be strasight with each other. If one looks like it is leaning it is bad. especially the tensioner. It can lean at the pulley and at the mount

check the idler/tensioner pully's and the alternator pully, there is a common problem with one of these 3 going bad, usually an idler pully the best way to check is to get a mechanics stethescope and touch the end to the bolt on the idler pully's you will notice a very distinct sound difference from a smooth pully and one with bad bearings. gm tech here, seen many of these

Power stearing pump pully alighnment


Assuming that everything else is OK, first, sight down the belt/pulley arrangement and make sure that everything is aligned correctly. If the pump pulley is not lined up and the pump is a remanufactured unit, it is possible that they pressed the pulley either too far, or not far enough onto the pump shaft. (any machine shop can correct this). If any other pulley is in or out too far, either the component is incorrect or shims are needed to get proper alignment.

How to replace belt tension pulley for dodge neon 2002


The power steering and A/C belt is tensioned by a tensioner pulley. Mine went bad and was "screaming" I thought it was the power steering pump and I replaced it only to find that it wasn't the problem. I couldn't find any bolts and deemed it too much of a problem for me to replace at home. The shop had to drop the engine and transaxle assembly from the engine bay in order to get enough room to replace the pulley. The problem with many FWD cars is having enough room to work so if you have to replace it, the engine has to move because you only have about two inches of room otherwise.
