Some are tough to get on, but if you're bottoming out the tensioner then double check to see if you have the right belt. If it's one of those "this is the belt the guy at the auto parts store said" situations, then take it back, grab a different guy or gal, and have them pull another belt to compare.

My tensioner is not tighting my belt enough, on my pontiac sunbird 2.0 Timing belt that is


if the tensioner is not tightening enough then you either have an incorrect belt or the tensioner itself is worn, if your talking about after replacing the timing belt. if your talking about it being loose and not having been replaced then the belt is worn out. I believe that these have the belt adjuster that is actually the water pump that moves(turns) to tighten the belt.

I changed the alternator on my 99 alero an now it makes a loud sweeking niose is there a way to tighten the belt


LOOSE BELT MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE A BAD BELT TENSIONER.A BAD BELT TENSIONER WILL CAUSE BELT TO SLIP.WHEN THAT HAPPENS ALTERNATOR CANT SPIN FAST ENOUGH TO KEEP BATTERY CHARGE.AND IF YOUR WATER PUMP DONT SPIN FAST ENOUGH ENGINE WILL OVERHEAT AND YOU WILL HAVE POWER STEERING PROBLEMS ALSO HAVE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER CHECK OUT AT A GARAGE..

Power steering went out last nite and battery light came on serpoentine belt is loose


You'll need to replace the belt tensioner as it is probably weak and not keeping the correct tension on the belt.

I cant move the belt tensioner enough to get belt over alternator pully? Is there a trick?


Put the belt onto all groved pulleys first, then un-tension the tensioner/idler pulley and slide the belt onto it (the tensioner/idler pulley should be smooth with no lip for the belt to go over).

How do I release the tension on the serpentine belt for replacement.


Turn the bolt on the tensioner counterclockwise.

Use a wrench on the bolt. Slowly turn counterclockwise until there is enough slack to remove the belt. Hold in that position (if you let go the tensioner will automatically apply tension again). Remove the belt.

Do not fully remove the bolt as the tensioner will come apart. Just release the tension to the point where the belt is loose.

Simple job.

Lossen the fan belt on 2002 ford ranger. 3.0 liter


This is a difficult problem for an English-speaking person (me) - but I will guess at what you are saying is wrong with your Ranger......

You have a loose fan belt.
I believe that the belt is Surpentine - and, therefor has a belt tensioner. A loose belt normally exists if the tensioner spring is weak. Other possibility is that the belt has stretched beyond the ability of the tensioner to keep it tight.

Either replace the belt (about 30 dollars, US) or replace the tensioner. (Your 2002 probably has enough miles on it to justify replacing the belt anyway!!)

Change drive belt //


check this out 02bdcd0.jpg
loosen the the two bolts (show on the figure above) first
loosen also the bolt used for adjusting tension.
remove the old worn-out belt.
place the new belt (you may need to loosen further the tension adjusting bolt)
when belt is properly place, tighten it enough the tension adjusting bolt,
(not too tight, but not too loose) press the belt to ensure its not too loose!
When belt tightness is enough, tighten the the other lower one of the two bolt then the lastly tighten the pivot bolt.
gookluck!!!!
