Depends on the vehicle you are talking about. A newer vehicle will have a belt tensioner. If you dont know where it is pull on the belt and look for the part that moves.

94 LEXUS GS300, HOW DO RELEASE THE TENSIONER? (FOR THE SERPENTINE BELT) PUTTING A SOCKET ON THE BOLT HEAD ON THE TENSIONER WITH A BREAKER ARM, DOESN'T MOVE IT. DON'T WANT TO FORCE IT AND BREAK THE...


You shouldn't need to loosen the tensioner itself. To release pressure on the belt tensioner, rotate the belt (or tensioner pulley if the belt is no longer installed) CLOCKWISE. This will release the tension to either remove the old belt or install a new one. Once installed, the belt tensioner will automatically take up the slack.

If for any reason, the tensioner is crooked, replace it!!! Also, install the belt with the writing facing you like you are trying to read a book. This WILL (a trick I learned at Mercedes) prevent even a new belt from squeeling!!

How do you replace the serpintine belt on a 1998 contour?


Open the hood and locate the belt tensioner. The serpentine belt drive is located on the front of the engine on the passenger side of the engine compartment. The spring-loaded belt tensioner on the 1998 Contour is located slightly to the left of and below the water pump pulley
Release the tension on the belt using the serpentine belt removal tool. On vehicles equipped with the 2.5 liter V-6 engine, snap the 3/8 inch-drive adapter onto the removal tool. Slip the tool into the square, 3/8-inch hole in the end of the tensioner arm. Rotate the tensioner clockwise to release the tension. While holding the tensioner back, remove the belt from one of the pulleys. Release the tensioner, remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull it out of the engine compartment
Snap a13 mm socket adapter into the belt removal tool for the 2.0 liter, four cylinder Contour. Place the tool onto the 13 mm bolt that holds the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm and rotate the tensioner clockwise. While hold the tensioner back, slip the belt off one of the pulleys. Release the tensioner, slip the belt from the remaining pulleys then remove it from the engine compartment
Route the new belt around the pulleys, according to the belt routing guide. The belt routing guide on the 1998 Contour is located on a decal on the left (passenger side) strut tower. If this decal is missing, or unreadable, the belt routing guide can also be found in your service manual. Rotate the tensioner pulley one more turn to allow the new belt to slip under the tensioner pulley.
Check the belt for proper alignment on the pulleys. It should lay flat on the pulley and not overhang the edges. If the belt must be repositioned, release the tensioner and reposition as needed.

How do i release tension on a 2004 pontiac vibe


Take note of the tensioner pulley and the tensioner arm that extends from the pulley. The tensioner pulley is the smallest pulley and has a metal arm extending from it. A bolt is located near the top of the arm. Place a ?? mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.




  • Step 3 Place a 15 mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
  • Step 4 Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.

    How to change serpentine belt


    Hello, this is an easy job. I like to remove the upper fan shroud to give me more room to work. TAKE A VERY GOOD LOOK at how the belt is routed, it looks simple but once it's off can be confusing. With a ratchet and socket or a box end wrench release the tension on the automatic belt tensioner. CAUTION don't let the wrench slip and bang your knuckles. With the tension released just remove the old belt and slowly release the tensioner. Don't just let it snap back. Place the new belt firmly and squarely in the grooves of the various pulleys and release tension on the tensioner again, then slip the belt around the final pulley and slowly release the tension again. I put the belt on the idler pulley last, (the smooth one).

    How replace the fan belt and idler pully


    Your Catera does not have a fan belt, it has an accessory belt. The fan is electrically operated using a thermal switch.

    To replace the accessory belt, you use a ratchet head to loosen the tensioner pulley, and slide the belt off one pulley, then release the tensioner and finish removing the belt. You install the new belt on all but the pulley closest to the tensioner, release the tension with a ratchet head, then install the belt on the tensioner pulley and release the tensioner so that it applies pressure on the belt.
