The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Need diagram of how to put a serpintine belt on a 2005 chrysler pacifica


  • Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you.
  1. 1. The first thing you want to do is jack the vehicle up and make sure you secure it.
  2. Underneath the vehicle is an engine shield with two bolts that have to be removed and the shield dropped to expose the belt. This procedure is for the 3.5 or 3.8 engine See diagram below.

  • Now you take a wrench and put it on the tentioner which is the little pulley. When you put the wrench on the pulley push upward to relieve the tention and remove the belt. This procedure is also for both engines. See diagram below.

  • Now the next thing you want to do is compare the new and old belt to make sure the parts store gave you the right one. Check the length, width and teeth markings. Now install the belt. There are different belt paths depending on the engine size. I will list both.

  • For the 3.5 engine - Pulley #4 is the tentioner pulley. Put your wrench on this pulley to remove the belt.

  • For the 3.8 engine - Pulley #4 is the idler pulley on this one. Put your wrench on this pulley to remove the belt.

  • After you put the belt on you need to start the car and take a flashlight and look carefully to make sure the belt is turning properly.
  • Now turn the car off and re-install the shield and lower the car.
  • Job complete.

  • If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
  • If this solution has satisfied you then please do rate and leave a comment so that others can see the results of my good work.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Replace a serpintine belt on a lincoln mark 7 1997


If your asking how. It's simple make a diagram of the belt routing (there might be a diagram on the frame under the hood). Ther is a tentioner pully that holds the belt tight. Get a ratchet with the proper socket fit it on the nut n the center of the tentioner and you can pull the tendioner pully as to le6t the belt have slack. then carefully take it off of the pully . youll have to twist and wiggle it to come out from behind the fan then install the new one in reverse
