What would cause difficulty in putting on a serpentine belt? The car squeeks when the belt was on before, now it is difficult to put on the belt in order to see what causes the problem.

Make sure that you have identified the tensioner pulley as apposed to the idler pulley. With the 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley's bolt, rotate it clockwise and this will release the tension on the belt, or in the case of installing a new serpentine belt, allow you to get it where it belongs. Hope this helped Tim

Can the serpentine belt if put on backwards cause the timing belt to jump in any way on a 2003 saturn l300 v6


the serpentine belt has ridges in it, and should only be put on with the ridges facing downward toward the ridges on the pulleys., there is a possibility that the timing could have jumped due to the serpentine belt slipping.

Sounds like serpentine belt is squeeking


If the squeek stops as the motor warms up replace it. You can also purchase some squeek stop spray and see if that helps before buying a new belt

Major friction/squeeking from serpentine belt!!!!


Keith,it sounds like you may need to clean the grooved surfaces on your pulleys,you could remove the belt and use some aerosol brake cleaner and a stiff brush to remove any build-up on the pulleys.you could also try spraying the same on the pulleys while the car is running,just be sure and wear eye protection and don't get to close to any moving parts.

Skeaky serpentine belt


are you positive the squeek is coming form the belt area?

the squeek can be from several other places, fan clutches can cause a high speed squeek, take the fan off and see if that cures it, the water pump front bearing can also be the culprit but that is hard to figure out without swapping in a new water pump, and lastly look at the AC compressor clutch, see if the squeek changes when you turn on and off the AC

hope this helps,
