I hear that on the service manual and the springs. Take a look at these decks if you talking about a deck belt and find yours. Then look for the spring routing visually.

If you need drive belt info look here:

I would like to know if this was enough info for you so that you were able to re-connect the spring.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

What is the part called that goes on top of the pulley were the belt goes through

Is it a drive belt or on the deck? I helped a friend of mine replace the drive belt tension spring on his. It was located just above the drive pully. Was a very stout spring. Used a brake spring tool and it popped right on. Is this the same thing you are talking about? the L shaped piece with a belt tensioner on it? If not, I will get back on here later and try to help. Thanks.

Want stay in timing

If you have replaced the spring loaded belt tensioner ( leave the pully nut loose ) then on refitting the belt , at a point midway between the two cam pulleys there should be a maximum deflection of .37" to .45 " ( 3/8 to just under 1/2") with a 22 lbs load applied on the belt . the tensioner pulley is then tightened up at the pulley nut to 28 -38ft lbs torque setting

I need to see how the dryer belt on my samsung DV448 dryer is routed. It isn't broken, but it isn't taut as well.

It sounds like you have a bad or broken belt tensioner. It is located in the bottom of the unit close to the motor . It is a spring loaded pully assembly which keeps the belt taught. The belt simply goes around the drum and the motor shaft and the belt tensioner pully.

Cant ajust tensioner pully

You have a (spring loaded) tensioner. I usually use a rachet and whatever size socket the bolt requires and use a 2 foot hollow pole as a pull handle.. Put the socket and rachet on the bolt, slip the pole over the handle of the rachet and push the tensioner back which will give you the slack room you need to install the belt. Make sure you have the belt around all the other pulley's so it will be a easier to slip it on to your tensioner. This tensioner should adjust itself by spring action.

Tension spring and pulley fell off

that seems to be a problem on several types of cars .. the pivot bearing freezes up so the tension spring no longer limits force on the belt .. then the pivot may break at a time of high stress .. you can replace the entire assembly with factory or replacement parts .. then its a good idea to inspect it now and then to make sure its free (pushing on the belt should cause movement of the tension pully .. there is usually a nut on the pully that you can use to move the pully to relieve tension so the belt can be installed ..

Tension pully is loose making the belt rattle

It sounds like you have a broken serpentine belt tensioner. The tensioner should always be tight, it is spring loaded and you would have had to release the tension on it to have put the new belt on.Depending on what engine that is in yours, this could be an easy fix or a hard fix. The tensioner on a 2.2L is made into a large plate bracket that is attached to the front on the engine and several other items have to come off to replace it.The tensioner on the 3.1L v6 is smaller and has one bolt that holds it on.Either one is available at the local auto parts store.

Hope this helps
