K1500 idler arm

There is an idler arm and a pitman arm.
The Pitman connects the steering box to the steering linkage by/through a ball joint. The idler arm should be on the other side by the passenger wheel.

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.

    I have the same issue. Just tore into it and found the return spring on the transmission idler pulley is broken. Without the spring the idler pulley arm keeps the belt engaged and wheels turning. The spring is attached to the idler arm just below the belt pulley. Looks like the trans has to come out to get to the spring. I just found the P/N for the spring.

    I am wanting to replace a drum bearing, and I've gotten the dryer top panel and front panel off, but I don't see how to release the drum belt (which is okay) so I can get the drum out. How to do...

    On the bottom left side next to the motor you will see a small plastic wheel (idler pulley) which the belt is wrapped around. The wheel is attached to a L-shaped piece of metal which is known as an idler spring arm which is made out of spring steel.

    Move the arm one way or the other and you will notice the belt tension getting looser. Push the arm further that way until you can get the belt off the pulley an motor. Use caution as the spring arm has torque on it and could snap back.

    Once the belt is off the motor and idler pulley you can then pull the drum out. You will need to lift the drum up slightly since the back sits on drum wheels(the groove on the back of the drum). Take the drum and belt out together.

    Once you have made the repairs, install the drum in reverse order.

    Note: Before removing the belt, make a diagram of how the belt goes around the motor and pulley for future reference.

    Hope this helps you out.
