How to replace drive belts on a 1989 dodge ram b250 van


Most accessory drive belts have an idler pulley that tensions the belt. The idler pulley either has s 1/2 inch square drive hole or some other way to apply force to counteract the spring. Identify the idler pulley and push it in the direction to loosen the belt, then remove it.

2005 dodge stratus r/t tensioner pulley and belt issue


ARE YOU POSITIVE THE SERP BELT IS NOT SLIPPING OFF THE CRANK PULLEY? I USE A STRIP OF DUCT TAPE TO HOLD IT ON THE PULLEY AS I FEED THE REST AROUND.

YOU SHOULD END UP WITH THE BELT TIGHT AND MUST THEN (USING A SERPENTINE IDLER PULLEY TOOL) RELEASE TENSION IN ORDER TO GET IT OVER THE CLOSEST, MOST CONVENIENT PULLEY...THEN RELEASE TOOL TENSION AND BELT SHOULD BE ON.
***FEEL FOR PROPER TENSION ON IDLER PULLEY (SERP BELT) IT MAY BE SHOT

Serpentine Pulleys replaced several times but still makes noise


have all the pulleys been replaced, if not then the idler/tension pulley may be the problem. Now if it just a loud squeal and then stops once it is ran, then the belt is loose. Hope this helped Tim

Do you have the defrost on when it is doing this? Turn it off and see if it goes away. I'm still thinking A/C compressor.

1999 dodge durango 5.9 v8 loud squealing noise from under hood replaced tenison pulley, idler pulley, ac pulley/clutch assembley,and belt please help


You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

hi, you should find a serp. belt routing diagram on the cross member that supports your radiator. if not- disconnect neg batt terminal for safety. you'll need a long breaker bar metric. as most, if not all fasteners on your ram are in metric. cant remember right size socket, but just go through your metric set and "eyeball"it. once you have the proper socket-detention the belt by pulling breaker bar clockwise. remove old belt. it maybe useful to take a picture of how your old belt is routed with a camera equipped cell phone (if it is still on) so that if you get into trouble, you can look at the picture as a reference point. new serpentine belt install--insert new belt over the cooling fan route under crank pulley-over fan pulley, around p/s pump pulley,up and around a/c comp pulley, under idler pulley, over alternator pulley and finally around tensioner pulley. pull breaker bar clockwise to slip belt past and onto the tensioner pulley. release tension on tensioner. be sure to check tensioner indexing marks located on the tensioner arm this is to make sure the new belt is installed properly. reconnect neg batt cable to terminal-remove any hand tools from engine bay, start engine and observe belt operation. hope this helps!
