    Could you give me an idea as to where the clip is located.

    I have replaced both roller wheels in the back and both drum guides in the front but it is still making a nise when it starts and stops.

    I have ordered the idler arm and wheel I just need to know where the clip is located, cause it seems like the old arm is kind of sloppy.

Model 5030D


Instructions

1

Unplug the electrical cord of the dryer from the electrical outlet before attempting to fit a new belt on the dryer.
2

Remove the lint screen from under the lint screen cover and locate the screws that are underneath the cover.


Unfasten the screws with a screwdriver and remove them from the lint filter slot, setting the screws aside.
4

Place a putty knife between the top and the cabinet on both sides of the dryer near the front, lifting up to dislodge the lid from the plastic clips that hold the top down.
5

Flip the top back toward the back of the dryer and let it rest against the back wall.
6

Locate the front kick panel and slide the putty knife just behind both sides of the panel, pulling forward to unfasten the panel from the plastic clips. Move the panel out of the way.
7

Locate the screws that hold the front panel on the dryer cabinet at the top on the inside of the cabinet. Remove the screws using a screwdriver.
8

Unfasten the electrical wire connector by hand, pulling it straight out from the back of the front panel. Move the panel out of the way.
9

Place a couple of wood blocks under the front of the dryer drum to support it while you are removing the old belt. The drum is the cylinder that holds the clothes as they are drying, located just behind the front panels.
10

Push the idler arm forward just a bit to relieve the tension on the belt, and slide the belt off the idler and motor pulleys. The idler arm is located next to the motor near the back of the dryer and has a pulley on a metal arm with a tension spring attached to it.
11

Lift the drum up off the blocks just a bit, slide the old belt off of the drum, and take it out of the dryer cabinet.
12

Hold the drum up just enough to slide the new dryer belt around the drum and fit the belt into the V-slot in the center of the drum, laying the remainder of the belt on the bottom of the cabinet near the idler pulley so you can access it easily.
13

Loop the end of the belt around the idler pulley and over the motor pulley, pushing back on the idler pulley to release the tension on the belt.
14

Let the idler pulley move back into place and check the alignment on the belt to verify that it is seated properly on the drum and the pulleys.
15

Remove the wood blocks from under the drum when the new belt is installed and attach the front kick panel to the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips.
16

Place the front panel over the kick panel and attach the electrical wire connector to the back of the panel by hand, pressing the connector back over the electrical prongs on the back of the panel.
17

Attach the screws at the top of the front panel on the inside of the cabinet with a screwdriver. Lower the top of the dryer back down over the cabinet.
18

Press the top of the dryer down over the plastic clips until the lid is secure and fasten the screws on the inside of the lint filter cover.
19

Slide the lint filter into the lint filter slot and plug the electrical cord of the dryer into the electrical outlet.

I have a 2000 gmc Jimmy . I'm going to change the


Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    Need to replace a wiper motor on a 2002 chrysler town and country mini van. how is this done?


    Remove the wiper arms (pop off the caps at the base) and the 15mm nut. Take out the screws that hold down the wind shield cowl lift it away to expose the washer hoses. Unplug the wiper motor (center driver's side) by pulling out the red clip on it and squeezing the tab. Remove the 13mm nut from the wiper motor idler arm and take out the 3 10mm bolts that hold it in place. Squeeze it out from under the wiper transmission, or loosen the lower bolts. You'll see them. Not a difficult job, just take your time.

    Hope I've helped.

    Idler spring came off when belt broke, not sure correct placement for spring and idler pulley


    Takes patients but can be done. First place idler arm in position then connect spring. Try and hold firmly while you place belt through pulley and fold around motor shaft. If installed right ,the pulley will maintain a constant pressure on the belt.

    Need pitman arm replaced and idler arm replaced


    The idler isn't bad, Remove cotter pin going through the nut, take off nut, you need a seperator tool to pull apart the arm from the center link, once that is done, remove the two bolts holding it to the frame, remove arm, installation is just reverse.
    The pitman arm is a little more to it. Do the same, remove cotter pin, take off nut, and seperate it from the rod, now there is big nut holding it on to the bottom of the steering box, take that nut off (some are a real pain), you will need a pitman arm puller to get it off. Note the position of the arm, need to put new one in same place, pull it off slow, sometimes seals will come with it, put seals back in same way, if they come out. Put some grease on splined shaft, tap new arm on until you can get nut on, tighten up with nut. Hopefully you have any problems. Good luck.

    Hoover self propelled U6630900 idler arm lock


    Remove the bottom plate (4 screws), remove belts and brush roller. There may be 1 small screw in the center front of the vac under the brush roller. remove this one. If this is a bagless model you will also need to remove all of the back screws (torx) that hold the lower hose on. This needs to be removed to take the hood off. underneath on each side of the power drive assembly you will have 1 screw, remove them. there is a clip on each side that snaps the front on, push them out with a screwdriver. Then the hood is removed.
