Does anybody have a diagram and/or instructions for changing the serpentine belt on a 1998 celica?


See Figures 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16
If a belt must be replaced, the driven unit must be loosened and moved to its extreme loosest position, generally by moving it toward the center of the motor. After removing the old belt, check the pulleys for dirt or built-up material which could affect belt contact. Carefully install the new belt, remembering that it is new and unused - it may appear to be just a little too small to fit over the pulley flanges. Fit the belt over the largest pulley (usually the crankshaft pulley at the bottom center of the motor) first, then work on the smaller one(s). Gentle pressure in the direction of rotation is helpful. Some belts run around a third or idler pulley, which acts as an additional pivot in the belt's path. It may be possible to loosen the idler pulley as well as the main component, making your job much easier. Depending on which belt(s) you are changing, it may be necessary to loosen or remove other interfering belts to get at the one(s) you want.

When buying replacement belts, remember that the fit is critical according to the length of the belt, the width of the belt, the depth of the belt and the angle or profile of the V shape (always match up old belt with new belt if possible). The belt shape should exactly match the shape of the pulley; belts that are not an exact match can cause noise, slippage and premature failure.
After the new belt is installed, draw tension on it by moving the driven unit away from the motor and tighten its mounting bolts. This is sometimes a three- or four-handed job; you may find an assistant helpful. Make sure that all the bolts you loosened get retightened and that any other loosened belts also have the correct tension. A new belt can be expected to stretch a bit after installation so be prepared to re-adjust your new belt.
After installing a new belt, run the engine for about 5 minutes and then recheck the belt tension.

Maytag Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement

Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.

For all single belt models use this diagram:


Style: Flat with ribs
Installation Tips: Flat side of belt against drum

Need belt diagram for 96 3800 buick riviea

The 1996 Buick Riviera SC has two belts. An inner and an outer belt. The outer belt is for the supercharger and the inner belt is the drive accessory belt. Rotate the tensioner pulley (idler) and remove the outer belt first. The do the same to remove the inner belt. Check all make pulleys and make sure they are free of any debris or oil.



Route the belt according to the diagram above leaving the tensioner pulley for last and maintaining tension on the belt with your hand. Rotate the tensioner pulley enough to slip the belt on. Inspect your belt and make sure it on correctly before you start to put the outer belt on. Repeat these steps for the outer belt.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Removeing and installing tensin pully for 2000 nissan altima


The tension pulley is mounted onto a semi-flat mounting bracket that is, in turn, mounted at three points, using bolts that also hold the timing chain cover. You have to jack up the bottom of the motor for temporary support and pull the top engine mount in order to get it off. To replace the tension pulley, ensure that You have the proper kit to replace it and follow the steps below:
  1. Make sure You wedge the car after packing it in a garage where You want to remove and install this tension pulley,
  2. Remove the negative terminal on the battery and leave the car for about 15 minutes before working on the car,
  3. Remove passenger side wheel,
  4. Take off the plastic access panel that is low and to the right in the wheel well opening. It has several plastic screws,
  5. You can now see the tensioner pulley and lower belt. Use a 14mm socket on an extension and loosen the bolt on the pulley.
  6. Behind and under the pulley bracket is an adjuster bolt. Loosen that to be able to move the pulley upward and allowing for the belt to come loose and off. This is now a good time to change that lower drive belt. It will now flop right off the AC compressor, tensioner pulley, and crank pulley.
  7. Reassemble in reverse order.
  8. Remember to fix the negative terminal of the battery back on.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Belt replacement- broken belt on a lde7600acw, older dryer. belt has been replaced but won't line up properly on idle pulley and motor? It appears maybe the tensioner is not set up rigt, maybe the belt...

Remember, the belt DOES NOT sit in the groove of the drum but about an inch from it in the direction of the front.
Also, the belt sits on the drum with the grooves facing away from the drum, not on the drum, a common mistake. If you have a new Genuine Maytag belt then there is a diagram of how the belt fits onto the tension pulley.
