We have a 2001 chyrsler voyager we are trying to put a belt that turns the alternater and power steering pump and we don't know how to do it


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Wrench
    • 1 Study the exact path the drive belt follows across the pulleys and make sure you know it or write it down in a diagram.
    • 2 Loosen the drive belt tensioner by loosening its upper locking nut with a wrench, then slip the drive belt off the crankshaft pulley first and remove it from the others.
    • 3 Take the old drive belt with you to the auto parts store so you can use it to help get the correct length, width and design for the replacement belt.
    • 4 Install the replacement drive belt onto the pulleys, making sure it runs in the same path as the old one. Check and make sure the belt fits properly in each of the ribbed grooves within the pulleys.
    • 5 Adjust the drive belt tensioner until it gives the belt the proper tension and tighten the locking nut. On some engine types. the belt uses a dynamic tensioner that will automatically set and maintain the correct tension.
hope this can help you.

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

How do you tension the dryer bet on a Kenmore 80 series dryer


you will have to loop the belt through the roller first then while you are installing the belt around the drum it will have tension. two people will need to install this since you have not done this before I assume. One to hold the drum up for you

My air conditioner compressor is frozen, the alternator belt is running off of the AC pulley. Does any one make a pulley system to replace the compressor unit so I do not have to replace compressor. Car is...


An easier solution and much cheaper would be to buy a shorter belt.

To find out what size belt you need simply run the route with a piece of string excluding going round the AC pulley. Measure the length in MM, then count the groove in the original belt.

Lets say the length of the string works out at say 1202mm and you have 6 grooves in the original belt, that will make the belt part number 6FPK1202

Call the local parts centre and ask for the nearest they have to that number.

The width (6 groove) must remain the same but the length (1202) can alter slightly as you can take up slack on the belt tensioner.

Hope that is worth 4 thumbs up!!

Whirlpool model WGD5300SQ dryer belt is off, roller is laying loose, is there a diagram?


If the belt slipped off, this will cause the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation


The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
