There should be a diagram or picture of the configuration on the fan belt shroud or on the hood. Just look up when the hood is open.....

SOURCE: Replacing fan belt

Hi Don,

It's easy and you won't need a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • For putting the belt on: Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. 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

Hope this helps you out.
Mike

SOURCE: have a rebuilt 6.2 chev

It sounds like the alternator is not properly lined up. You had the belt on right the first time. Put it back on and before you start the truck check the alignment on the belt. From the side of the truck look down thw belt to the fan pulley and see if you notice a slight bend, or use a straight edge to do the same thing. Also sight down the belt to the crank for the same thing. Yoiu may have to shim out the alternator brackets to get the belt in line with the other pulleys. Hope this helps.

I put in a new timing belt but when i start engine there is no sprocket do you know what causes it?


have the OBD codes read you may have left a lead off somewhere the code reader should point you in the right direction , dont want to alarm you but if the timing belt breaks whilst engine running it will almost certainly cause some sort of damage so might not be as simple as no spark

Starting problem


You did not give the make model and year, so I will give a generic reply. You could have an accessory that locked up and broke the belt. Try taking the belt back off and see if the engine will crank.

My serpentine belt broke drove car 30 miles home without belt, got a new belt put it on cranked car up took for test drive got back opened hood realised the exhaust manifold was red hot. Turned A/c off...


  • Well, that belt drives everything including the water pump. When the belt broke and you drove it no coolant circulated and the exhaust glowed from overheating. A red glowing manifold usually only happens from excessive heat caused from modified engines. But in this case this is almost surely what happened. You are lucky you did not blow your engine. Park it and let it cool down for a few hours.

Drive belt broke, identify wich one and can I repair myself ?


The one that is still on is most likely the AC. The other belt are for the water pump and alternator or power steering pump. (the starter has no belts). Yes get a new belt and put it on like you said. Loosen whole alternator and slide back and forth to put on belt.

We need to replace a fan belt that broke. Does


You can do it. If it takes longer than 10 minutes something is wrong. If its a V8 make sure the tensioner is good, Fan belts rarely just "break" so check all the pulleys.
