Did you check under the hood? There should be a decal w/ the proper routing of the belt somewhere in or around the engine compartment. If u can't find it, let me know, I'll try to get more info. countrycurt0

Locate the idler pulley. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the bolt that protrudes from the back of the pulley. This will let the belt go slack.

My 2001 Toyota Echo makes a squealing noise when turning the wheels. I do not have power steering. What could this be?

Have you checked for the power steering pump as some of the Echo's did have power steering fitted as an option?
Here's a quick test for steering issues. Start the engine. When the car is NOT moving, turn the steering from fully left all the way to the right and back again. If this is easy you have power steering. Listen as you do it. If it squeals it could be a belt, a pump or the rack itself.
If there is no squeal the problem is somewhere in the suspension links or, as yours is front wheel drive, the issue could also be the CV joint in the drive shafts.

My Echo makes a squealing noise randomly when driving & airconditioner is turned off?

Your serpentine belts tension is loose or the belt is going hard. Check the tension on the tensioner pulley and condition of belt.
The belt is slipping on your accessory pulleys when a load is placed on them such as power steering, alternator and clutch fan.

Toyota echo 2000 serpentine belt adjustment

My echo has two belts. Not one, like shown in this diagram. This diagram doesn't work for me, or anyone else that has my belt setup with two belts. One for the AC/Alt, and one for the power steering.

How do I stop my v-belt from making squeeling noises on my Toyota Echo 2004.

Squealing is usually an indication of belt wear. Check the underside of the belt for worn or "shiny" spots. If it's worn it's slipping and is most likely not only the cause of the squeal but could impact the charging and cooling systems.
If the belt is in good shape and/or has been replaced recently, it may just need to be tightened. All new belts develop some play after initial installation after they have "broken in". If the belt is in good shape and is tight, the problem most likely lies elsewhere (bad bearing in waterpump or power steering pump, or alternator) I hope you found this post helpful. Best of luck!

Car hard to turn to right. happened all of a sudden. Any suggestions?

You have a rack and pinion steering system with a hydraulic power assist. If your belt on the power steering pump is in good condition and properly adjusted, and your power steering fluid is at the right level, the problem is most likely with the rack and pinion unit, since you have no power assist in only one direction.

good day,first of all you may ask the owner if he has the service manual so you can change the last timing belt changed. secondly you may try to check the belt itself if it has some tiny cracks or a little loose or a little worn. hope this helps, have a nice day

Can't change power steering belt on 2001 toyota echo

take a look some pullies are spring loaded and it may require a ( not recommend unless stuck) but a pry bar. if spring loaded is the case there should be a tool that you could rent that is use for prying the pulley.

Note: make sure to release slowly so not to damage pulley.
