Replace Alternator - Belt Tension Pulley


If the tensioner doesn't automatically reset to the proper position, then the spring in the tensioner arm is bad. Need to replace the tensioner assembly, in that case.

I need to know how to change the serpentine belt on a 1994 chevy cavalier


    • 1 Open the hood, and locate the auto-tensioning bolt in the center of the pulley system. This bolt will be in the center of a pulley that does not appear to be connected to any component.
    • 2 Turn the auto-tensioning bolt clockwise with a socket wrench to release tension on the belt.
    • 3 Slide the belt off the pulley system.
    • 4 Orient the new belt on the pulley system according to the belt path printed on the underside of the hood and next to the hood latch mechanism on your Cavalier. Leave slack in the belt around the tensioner pulley.
    • 5 Slide the belt over the tensioner pulley while you have the auto-tensioner pulley bolt turned clockwise as far as it will go. Make sure that the belt is sitting centered in all the various pulley grooves on the pulley system.
    • 6 Release the tension pulley bolt, and apply tension to the belt. The auto-tensioner will automatically apply the correct amount of tension on the belt.

How do replace the tensioner pulley on a 2.2 engine 4 cyl. 1998 chevy cavelier .


there are two bolts located behind the pully on the mounting bracket arm, (you have to use a 1/2 inch drive bar in the idler pully to move it so you can see the bolts) That will help you with locating the bolts, while you are moving the pully you might as well take the belt off to save time, After you remove the old idler pully install the new one, use your 1/2 drive bar on the pully to put your belt back on. Pretty simple job, good luck!

How to replace tensioner pulley


I have to replace my pulley as well; all of the information I've found on the net say's you need to remove the whole engine mount plate assembly from the left side of the engine and that you can't replace just the pulley.

Well they're all full of ****; rockauto.com sells a replacement pulley, you'll find it in there online catalog. In order to replace the pulley, you will need to remove the power steering pump and support bracket, with the power steering pump removed, the tensioner arm will move to it's rest position with the pulley mounting bolt hidden behind the support bracket, you can push down on the tensioner arm against the spring pressure to expose the allen headed mounting bolt and get an allen wrench on it.

Rockauto offers three different pulleys from about 15 to 25 dollars.... not a terribly easy job, but very doable and about $300.00 cheaper (part only) than replacing the tensioner arm asm.

Good Luck!

Serpentine belt diagram for 2003 chevy cavalier 2.2l ohc


That pulley is the tensioner pulley. It is either manual or automatic. If it is a manual tensioner, the bracket that it is attached to it should have a square hole located on it bracket somewhere. This whole will look inoculous, but will be offset from the pulley. If you have a 3/4" socket wrench, you'll notice it fits nicely into this hole.

You use this hole (and the wrench) to twist the whole bracket and apply tension while you tighten the bracket itself down.

An automatic tensioner will have a spring inside and would pretty much work by itself when a belt of the proper length is installed. Your Hanynes manual would have already alerted you to how to adjust an automatic tensioner.

I hope that helps.

BTW, the tensioner pully usually rests on the back (flat) side of the belt and has no device attached to it.

I need to know where the belt tensioner is located to change my serpintine belt.


Just to make sure you have the right part (belt Tensioner), If you push and pull on the serpentine belt, look for the pulley that moves with the belt. That will be the Belt tensioner pulley, there is going to be a slot on the tension arm for a ratchet so you can take the tension off the old belt and slid it off the idler pulley or any one of the other pully's. Good luck and hope this made sense, keep me posted be glad to help.

What does the tension pully bolt to? We need to replace it because it has a whole the size of the tip of your finger. It is a plate looking thing and we don't know what it is called.


The tension pulley bolts to the tension arm. You need to remove the whole arm to remove the pully from it. I would recommend replacing the whole unit as one as that is the way they normally come from the parts store. I hope this helps. The tension assembly is attached to the engine block itself and there is a notch in the block for the tension spring to go into when you put it back on. The belt obvioulsly has to be off for this to work.

How do you get to the water pump in a 1999 chevy cavalier


Make sure you don't have delco loc 2 or theftloc audio system before disconnecting the battery. You should be able to do this by contacting your local dealer and they run the vin and tell you.

Before you put in the new pump you need to put grease on the splines.

battery disconnected

drain coolant

take out the electric fan

take off the serpintine belt

use a large screwdrive or equivlent to hold the pump pulley and loosen all of the bolts holding the pulley on the pump.

After all are loosened then remove from the pulley and remove the pulley.

Take out the four bolts holding the pump to the engine block.

get a wood dowl or equilent and a hammer and give the old pump a few taps to break away the old seal.

Once the seals broke loose take the old pump out.

then clean up the block,

clean everything with brake parts cleaner

put RTV sealant on both sides of the new gasket and put it on the new pump.

try not to let the gasket move around so the bead isnt messed up to bad.

put the pump in and put all four bolts in finger tight

Torque on pump mounting bolts is 18 ft/lbs

Torque on pulley bolts is 18 ft/ lbs

then the rest is just reverse of removal

There is a Large Pulley above the Tensioners Small Pulley. This Larger Pulley has a Bolt in the Middle of it. Geta Socket and Wratchet and Tork this Bolt and it will Lower the Tensioner so that you can Reinstall it.
