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

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

there will be a diagram on the radaitor support, or on the hood next to the latch, you will need a wrench to turn the belt tensioner so it will loosen up enought to get the old belt off and the new one on, you have to hold it so you can get the belt off and on.
