You have to go to parts store and barrow a pully puller. Autozone will let you barrow for free, This holds the pully andlets you remove the bolt. They will help you out if any further question. Good luck to you.

How to put on belthow do i install fab belt 2003 saturn ion cant fin how to move tensioner


The tensioner will have a mounting bolt in the center. Put a wrench (box end) on the bolt to pivot the tensioner. Note - make sure you are moving the tensioner and not trying to move an idler pulley

How to replace alternator belt


Find the belt tensioner bolt and loosen it. There will probably be two other bolts that need to be loosened (just loosened not removed). Move the alternator to its " most slack position" pull the old belt off anf fit the new one. Push the alternator with a broomstick or something similar to tension the belt. (Be sure to push against a solid part of the alternator or you could break it) tighten the tensioner bolt. the tension should be set so that you can push the belt in about 20mm between the pullies with your finger. If the new belt squeels when you start the car the belt is too loose. Tighten the other two mounting bolts.

I cant get the crankshaft bolt off


They are sometimes installed with threadlock compound which makes it very difficult. How big and powerful was the impact wrench? Is there scope yet to hire a really huge one?

The bump method is a last resort because it puts the flywheel ring gear teeth at some risk. Break one of those and you are up for expense.

I cant figure out how to move belt tensioner on ford escortz2x to allow play to put belt back on


Use a 13 mm wrench to turn the bolt on the tensioner clockwise, like you are trying to tighten the bolt. The arm should swing towards the rear of the car. If it does not, then the tensioner is bad and should be replaced.

I need to know how to replace the Drive Belt/ Serpantine Belt/ Accessory Belt Tensioner. NOT JUST THE PULLEY THE ENTIRE ASSEMBLY. Step by step please. Diagrams would be useful. Thanks


this should be the correct routing for that belt

replacement is not too difficult. usually the bolt in the center turns opposite to how you normally loosen bolts. to remove the hole tension should be straightforward as you will see the bolts

hELLO THERE:
NO YOU DO NOT WANT TO LOOSEN THIS BOLT LOOK FOR THE SMALL SQUARE HOLE THAT A SOCKET EXTENSION FITS INTO THIS IS THE HOLE THAT YOU ARE WANTING TO USE AND THEN PUSH IT OVER TO THE DRIVERS SIDE TO MAKE THE TENSIONER LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE BELT SO YOU CAN REMOVE IT OK

Sounds like someone rigged this when replacing the belt previously. The 'old school' way would be to unbolt the compressor to slide on the belt.

Cant release tension on drive belt on a 96 chevy s10


The tensioner is spring loaded there is a tool that is made for them that you can get at auto zone or almost any auto parts store. The tensioner will have a square hole in it or you use the bolt that hold the idler pulley on it and just get your tool on it and just put some pressure on it it will move . you don't have to loosen any bolts for it .
