"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s).
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

2002 dodge ramn 4.7 has a squeak squeaks on first start up and once warm squeaks between 40 to 45 mph any faster or slower don't do it wont do it at idle brand new waterpump and belt pulley spin free


Check alternator decoupler, thats new name for mechanical pulley. Pull serpentine belt and check if alternator pulley is a one way clutch. Should freewheel in opposite direction smoothly and lock up in drive direction. If it doesnt lock up in about 1-2mm of rotation, its bad and will cause a random squeak, usually at idle and when getting off the gas at any rpm.

Serpentine belt squeaks


try some belt dressing if that does not fix the problem then you will need to get another belt take it back to o riely and get a new belt or your money back then go to the other parts store and purchase another belt. Remember you get what you pay for. there might be other problems like the altenator or tensioners or a/c compressor might be draging

Squeaking after starting


The squeaking noise is probably coming from the serpentine belt. Usually a new belt will fix the problem. You could have premature belt failure due to a weak tensioner, oil leaks,or other accessories that are attached to the belt. Hope this helps :)

I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 and have had a great deal of work done in the last 3 weeks. I have new spark plugs, wires, gasket cover, oil change and the motor mounts replaced. After picking up my car...


It depends if the Serpentine Belt is worn or not, i.e. cracked, glazed, dryed out. If it is good and the belt is still squealing than it may be a bad Belt Tensioner, which is not keeping the belt properly tensioned. (Loose Belt) Replacing the Belt will not solve the problem of the car running hot. You will need to fix the Electric Fan that is not working, because if you keep on running the car hot all the time you may blow the Head gasket to your engine which will cost you about $800-1100 dollars to repair.

Serpentine belt squeaks on startup


You can not tighten the belt, it is held on by the Belt tensioner...it's located a little to the left side of the waterpump...now it maybe getting weak, or your belt may need to be replaced...Sometimes they look good, with no cracks, but they get worn and streched out over time..or it may look shiny..either one of those will cause it too squeak..

New serpentine belt squeaks


its one of two things.

1. your tensioner is bad and not creating enough tension on the belt causing it to slip when you accelerate.

2. it could be the belt.

let it go for a week or 2 and see if it stops, if not I would go ahead and replace the belt tensioner.
