There should be no play in the belt whatsoever.the tensioner is going to be on the bottom at the front from the sound of it.youll need to locate the tensioner to see if the belt has slipped off or replace the belt with a new one.

Xc90 driver seatbelt stuck in pillar

Some cars have a belt release button in the door frame . When you open the door the button releases the seat belt. Check to see if your vehicle has one. Make sure it is not stuck or broken. Hope this helps.

How do i get the serpentine belt off a 2003 mitsubishi outlander

To get this off, there are two ways:

1. Loosen the alternator, and pull it back until the tension is released.

2. There will be between the various pully's (belt runs around) a tensioner. This is holds the belt tight. With a rachet and socket, pull (push) the tensioner until the belt has slack - pull one part of the belt off (any pully) and release the tensioner back to it's position. (It will go further than when the belt was on - this is normal.

When installing the new belt, if using the tensioner, the belt will need to be placed on the tensioner last - get the belt around all other pully's in it's correct configuration, then, pull back (push) tensioner *(while holding the belt tight with other hand, and ready to be pushed over tensioner) and slide belt into place over it.

Also note: a serpentine belt will only go on one way (grooved side down).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Is there a tension pully for the serpintine belt on a 92 honda accord

no, you set the tension by slackening the bolts on the alternator and using a long handle screwdriver wedged between engine and alternator tighten so that the longest part of the belt between pulleys has about 1/2 to 3/4 inch slack too tight and the belt will snap very soon....too slack and the belt will slip...

How do i adjust the timing belt on a 94 honda accord?

you should not have to adjust the timeing belt unless you are installing it. if you are installing it. I rotate the crank to take out the slack, and put the slack on the tensioner side. loosen the tensioner pull and pull it up tight with your hand and release it allowing the spring to keep the tension while you tighten the tensioner pully bolt.
If they ar too tight they make a high pitch groan heard easiest when reving up the engine. If the are too loose they may skip time. not good.

Belt keeps coming off washer machine.

when your belt comes off this maybe a result of it being to slack,were the belt goes around the motor you will see that this motor is held on by either one or two bolts just loosen the bolts and why someone pulls the motor up to make it more tight then tighten bolts why someone still pulling motor up as the motor could slip back down making it slack again,hope this helps,rgds,paul

1995 subaru legacy, no fire:

One side of the timing cover can be pulled off to look at the belt. If you pull off the cover on the driver's side (four 10mm bolts), you'll be able to see if the belt is tight, slack, or broken. Good luck!

Top loading whirlpool leaks during drain cycles. Back hoses are ok. Of the two visible drive belts at the bottom, one is fairly slack (not the belt coming off the motor, the other one). Should both...

Hi mate the answer to your question is that all belts should be tight but could be a clue to your fault where the belt is slack check to see if there is bushing is worn see if there is play on the shaft if so replace the unit
