On the idler spring loaded tensioner you put a 15mm spanner and turn it clockwise this will compress against the spring allowing the belt to come loose

Belt replacement 2003 ml500


It is fairly straightforward on the M113 V8s. I can't remember if that automatic tensioner has the 15mm socket spot on it just under the tensioner pulley or not. The tensioner is located on the driver-side lower but next to the power steering pump pulley. Move it from YOUR right to left, when facing the engine and remove the belt. Put the new belt on starting at the crank pulley. The rib side routes all the way around the idler pulley-from the crank shaft, Power steering pulley, top guide/idler pulley and then alternator on the lower right(passenger-side). The back or smooth side goes around the tensioner and water pump.fan pulley. I hope that helps.

Two things to check. If your car has a harmonic pulley on the crank shaft check that it is not slipping on the rubber insert and squealing. Second point is when there is no need for power steering ie straight ahead or idling there is no load on the pump so it will feel ok but as soon as you move the position of the steering wheel the valves close off and the pump comes under load. If the drive belt only drives the power pump and it broke then I would suspect a problem in the pump. Check that the belt is the correct size for the pulley groove as if it is too small the belt will run on the bottom of the pulley and slip, and squeal.

How much shaft end play is permissible in a 1994 ford taurus power steering pump? my serpentine belts keeps running off. the only thing that has any discernible end play is the power steering pump.


Next to none, that you should be able to feel

Suspect that the crank shaft damper pulley is worn out

You won't see misalignment but it is there

May have to lower sub frame on one side to get it off

Power steering went out on a 2002 trailblazer. the serpentine belt was slipping off so I replaced the serpentine belt and pulley tensioner, still out. Pulled the steering pump, pulley shaft was broken....


Have you checked your tie rods? Possibility one is either bent or broken, I've seen it before on TB's. That pulley shaft is a common problem to break, especially when cold out. PS pumps/pulley shafts and tie rods will snap if doing donuts in the snow with the steering wheel cranked, or off-roading. The PS is completely mechanical, no fuses or relays.

1998 grand cherokee 4.0 eng. crank shaft pulley,is there a back piece for the belt to go on?


are you talking about the serpentine belt or the timing chains, the serpentine belt is what drives the alternator,power steer,water pump, and goes around a few idlers. and around crank pulley that is in front of harmonic balancer. Did the belt fall off? is the pulley missing? cause it should be very self explanatory and visual.

Replaced serpintine belt for power steering, alternator and crank shaft but belt still squeels. And appears to be tight. Slack is of 1/4 in..Is there one of these three components froze up. Power steering...


The crank shaft is not froze up if the engine is running. Without knowing how severe the situation is, it is probably best to remove the belt and feel each pulley or drive wheel to detect the condition of the bearings. It should be very clear which pulley bearing is loose by "wiggling" the pulleys. One of the pulleys will have a lot of play in the bearing. Also the pulley with the bad bearing will be hard to turn by hand with the belt off. Be sure to check every pulley on that belt circuit, except the crank shaft, you can't turn it by hand.

Broken power steering belt


no your p/s belt just takes is spun by the crank shaft. if its not making noise when you turn the key, then you should check the fuses under the dash and under the hood for ign one of those might be bad.
