You need to pull the tensioner back or you are routing it incorrectly.

How do you loosen a power steering tensioner on a 86 Chevy caprice?


I've got an 85 2.5 celebrity and am assuming that your 86 is similar. Most people might think this is a incorrect question, but I've spend hours trying to locate all the bolts to loosen. The alternator belt is straightforward. Loosen the alternator bolt in located in the slider portion and the pivot bolt (15mm on mine). The compressor belt is straightforward. Loosen the two compressor adjustment bolts in the slider slot and the loosen the pivot bolt. This belt will be hard to remove even with the compressor fully pushed down. Take some vitamins. The worse belt by far is the power steering belt. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the power steering "canister". There are two adjustment bolts to loosen from my memory. The one that is easy to find is on the engine side of the power steering canister. The other is hard to see but is located on the pulley side between two of the pulleys. It's also hard to get a wrench on. But, you've got to find and loosen this bolt. I cringe when this belt breaks. Good Luck!!

How do I replace the serpentine belt on a 1999 Kia Sephia?


1.8L Engine
  1. Using a belt tension gauge, measure the drive belt tension and compare with the following specifications:
    1. Alternator belt (new): 86-103 lbs. (383-461 N)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 68-86 lbs. (304-383 N)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 110-132 lbs (491-589 N)
    4. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (used): 95-110 lbs. (422-491 N)

  2. Using the deflection method, apply moderate pressure (about 22 lbs) halfway between the pulleys, and compare with the following specifications.
    1. Alternator belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    4. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
  3. If the specifications fall outside the ranges given, adjust the belt as follows:
    1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and adjusting bolt.
    2. Adjust the alternator to get the specified belt deflection.
    3. Tighten the bolts, then recheck the tension.

Need a fan belt changing diagram for an 86 olds cutless supreme


mcdevito75 here, I don:"t think there is a fan belt changeing diagram for your 86" you can order the new belts and mark them Water pump, alternator, power steering. as you order them. The power steering pump is the most difficult to loosen and tighten, you"ll also need a crowbar to hold the various units tight after you install the new belts as the belts can"t be too lose nor too tight. Best bet let your local shop change the belts they last a good while and you have the piece of mind all is adjusted correct.

Diagram of pullies and belts on 86 toyota mr2


If you are talking the a/c pulley and alternator pulley, I am pretty sure the belts are different sizes (different number of ribs in the belt). So, you can just look carefully at the ribs and put the right belt on the right pully. from memory, the A/C belt goes on first and all the pullies towards the front of the car are used for that belt. The Alternator belt goes on next, and all the pullies from the crank shaft toward the back of the car (from the crank pulley) go to that. I could have those reversed, but the ribs on the belt will show you for sure. have fun!

Does the water pump have a belt


yes the belt goes around the pump to circulate coolant through engine it is not a special single belt it also turns steering and alternator, in single belt vehicles in 2 belt engines you will have to see which one goes around pump, the pump is usually located at he centre of the block at the front near the bottom

Belt replacements


Hi Saul,

I've got an '86 Cherokee Laredo 2.6L and a '91 Wrangler too. It's got a 4.0L inline six cylinder. But it has a serpentine belt.

Comment me back and tell me which components will be attached to the belt in question. That way I can tell you which of them gets used to install the belt.

You will need a socket set and a pry bar for the procedure.
Let me know
Mike
