Here's how to get a serpentine belt on or off (You'll need to do both). It's easy and doesn't require a prybar. The routing is usually diagrammed on a label under the hood.


On:

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
Off:

Hi Kaede247,

I'm not aware of any online sources I can post without copyright infringement; realistically, you should invest the $20-$25 (typical) in a hardcopy manual for your vehicle that you can use while you're working on the car (thus avoiding greasy fingers on your computer keyboard or display). They are available at nearly any auto parts store.

There is typically a tensioner pulley of some kind you will need to loosen, slip the belt into position, and then re-tighten, preferably to factory-spcifications, but at the very least tight enough that you can't easily deflect the belt between two pulleys, and so it doesn't slip.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

The serpentine belt came off my 94 lebaron. i put the belt on and started the motor.the belt seems to be out of alignment on the power steering pump pulley. is there any way to adjust the pulley?


With the engine running very carefully place a screwdriver to the side of the belt that nedds to be put back on track. A slight push will move it over. Be very careful because slip could shoot the screwdriver out of your hand.

Re install a serpentine belt on a 94 chrysler lebaron 3.0L


There should be a diagram attached to the car near where the belt goes showing how the belt is to run through the pulleys.
Newer vehicles have a tension pulley which is a pulley on a spring loaded arm that keeps the belt tight.

First run the belt on all the other pulleys and then use a wrench to hold the tension pulley back while you slip the belt on.

Older cars do not have a tension pulley and you had to usually loosen something like the alternator a little bit to get it on.

Do you have a diagram on how to install a serpentine belt on a 1994 Chrysler LeBaron?


1994 CHRYSLER LEBARON - V6 3.0L 2972cc 181ci GAS FI N 3

Open the hood, the diagram for the serpentine belt is on the cowling.

From DAYCO Catalog
Belt Routing Diagram (Alt., P.S., Idler & Tens.)
9e1b1eb.jpg


From comments to other users and Lebaron Owners; for remove, starting at the alternator pulley and going clockwise around the pathof the belt, the belt drops down and forward and goes under the idlerpulley, continues forward and less steeply downward and goes around thecrankshaft pulley clockwise, rises rearward going over the top or thetensioner pulley counterclockwise, then drops down and around the powersteering pump clockwise and rises to go around the alternator pulleyclockise (which is where I started the description). To loosen thetension to remove the belt, or to give you slack to install the beltwithout having to force it over a pulley while under tension you rotatethe tensioner pulley arm around its pivot clockwise according to the'94 shop manual. It doesn't show by what means to effect this rotation,but in the earlier manual I have ('89) it shows there to be a 1/2"square hole in the tensioner arm into which you insert a breaker barwith a 1/2" square drive which gives you the temporary lever to rotatethe tensioner against its spring action. I assume there is a similar1/2" square hole on the '94 you are working with. Interestingly,between '89 and '94 the idler pulley was added, and the requiredrotation of the tension arm changed from counterclockwise to clockwiseto relieve the tension."

I think this will help you get the belt on. Good luck.

How to put on Serpentine belt for 92 Chrysler Lebaron 3.o liter engine


Before replacing or installing the old belt you need to check all of the pulley's that the belt rides on for play. Pay special attention to the spring loaded tensioner pulley. They can sieze and cause the belt to come off.

I found this picture it is a bit large for the screen.
