You can look at tensioner and see which way it will turn,with racket,you may have to turn from below.It is a tight fit but bolt doesn't need to be loose.

1996 Ford Mustang v6 coupe idler pulley and belt tensioner


I guess it depends on what failed.
The idler pulley is a simple pulley with a bearing held on by a large bolt.
If the bolt broke, or came loose, you may have problems keeping a new bolt in place.
If the bearing wore out and came apart, the bolt is probably still in the bracket. A failed bearing is common after 10 or 15 years, a loose bolt is somewhat rare.
The belt tensioner is another pulley mounted on a spring-loaded arm that keeps the belt tight. Same design but a different function.

How do I release tension on the timeing belt to replace the top idler pulley


by loosing the tensioner which is on the left side you need a long extension ans a 8 mm im not sure about that, but dont take the tensioner bolts all the way out just what you need to take the belt off its ease for you to put tensioner back in place.

make sure the tensioner is tight,it has a spring in it to move clockwise,do not leave any bolt loose,make sure you are routing the belt where the tension holds the belt on,not other way.

My serpentine belt keeps coming off. How do i fix it? We have checked all the pulleys and the power steering pulley seems off.


You can adjust your Tensioner pulley, Im not sure which pulley it is on your car, (sorry), Also if your Altenator is on a Swing, You can adjust that too to put more tension on your belt.

Hi we have a kia sedona 2000year and 2.9 diesel, exec. auto. it came with half the engine in the boot, we have skimed the head and rebuilt it just the new cam belt just wont tighten enough we have fully...


the cam belt should have a little slack in it,, about 1/2 inch over its longest run, its not like a fan belt witch should be tight, but check the idler bearing are not worn out,,and i do hope this is a new belt for this car,,,if your using the old belt,,,dont! fit a new one on it or it could brake on you, and that would be another engine rebuild on your hands,,,

Change drive belt //


check this out 02bdcd0.jpg
loosen the the two bolts (show on the figure above) first
loosen also the bolt used for adjusting tension.
remove the old worn-out belt.
place the new belt (you may need to loosen further the tension adjusting bolt)
when belt is properly place, tighten it enough the tension adjusting bolt,
(not too tight, but not too loose) press the belt to ensure its not too loose!
When belt tightness is enough, tighten the the other lower one of the two bolt then the lastly tighten the pivot bolt.
gookluck!!!!
