Usually it is more practical to replace a damaged or defective belt tensioner rather than repair it.

I need a front of engine belt system diagram. I'm trying to replace all of the pulleys that have ball bearings. I'm not sure if Ther is 1 Tensioner Pulley and 1 or 2 Idler pulleys. .


Get yourself a chilton or haynes repair manual for your ride....it will give you a diagram of the serpentine belt. There is only one tensioner pulley but not knowing your ride or make I can't say....I
recommend an after-market repair manual for D Y mechanics!!!! On youtube is a how-to regarding the serpentine belt replacement but its probably not your model. Pepboys and other auto parts sell manual.

Replacing an alternator belt on a 2006 kia sorento


In most cases there is one tensioner that is spring loaded, you use a tool to push or pull the tensioner away from the belt to release the tension.
Make sure you have a diagram of how the belt is routed before you remove it.

NEED INSTALION ON SERPENTINE BELT TIPS


1. A repair manual will be very helpful for this operation! If you cannot get one, then

2. Carefully observe the routing of the belt you will replace. Do you have one belt or two or more? make note exactly where they are. Draw yourself a "map" if you can.

3. Look for the "tensioner." This is usual a pulley by itself and usually has quite a bit of tension on the belt. Most tension pulleys I have seen press on the flat side of the serpentine belt. All of the accessories use pulleys with ribs that match the ribbed side of the belt. Carefully remove the tension from the belt. DO NOT pry off the belt! It should come off somewhat easily.

4. Compare the old belt to the new belt. They must have the same number of ribs and must be the same length. Keep in mind that the accessories that use that belt must line up so that the belt is not twisted even slightly.

5. Install the new belt exactly following the path of the old belt. It should go one easily and almost snug.

6. Apply the proper pressure to the tensioner and tighten the bolts for it. The instructions should tell you how much pressure you need against the belt for it to operate properly and safely.

7. After everything is hooked up properly and nothing will interfere with fans or other items, then start up the engine and listen for any screeching noises. Screeching noises, even if just for a second or two indicate the belt is either loose or not installed correctly. A belt that is loose or not fitted correctly will cause accessories to not work properly, cause damage to the new belt and possibly damage other parts of the vehicle. A belt that suddenly breaks can also cause serious personal injury, so please be careful!

8. If these instructions make you wary of doing the repair yourself, then take the vehicle to a professional who will give you a warranty for the work.

I wish you well.

Drive Belt


I am not too familiar with your vehicle, but if it has a serpentine belt there is a tensioner that keeps tension on the belt. Most tensioners have a area where a 1/2" ratchet or breaker-bar can be inserted to release the tension. The tensioner is nothing more than a spring loaded pulley, so look for the pulley that seems to be doing nothing.

A/c pwr steering drive belt keeps coming off


If you have set the tension correcly when replacing the belt there are a couple of things that could be going on. #1 it is possible that the belt itself is the wrong length or width. Be sure that the belt you have is a good replacement for your make and model. Also I have repaired a vehicle that had this problem and it was because of the tension roller was freezing up and not moving the belt along properly so replacing that roller fixed the problem. Also, if the angle of one of the aspects of what the belt goes over is slightly cockeyed it can cause the belt to come off as well. I would suspect the length or width of that belt is your problem. Make sure that you have the correct belt, set the tension properly, check all the angles of the devices it rolls over and make sure nothing is slow, bound or not moving(frozen up) and this problem should be fixed. Good Luck
