Check to make sure the belt is routed around the compressor pulley. Also check the wiring connector at the compressor in case it was dislodged.

When replacing a serpentine belt on a 1995 ford windstar should a mechanic check the condition of the tensioner?

How do you adjust the serpentine belt tension 2004 dodge ram?

The tensioner is a moving part and can wear out like any other mechanical part, however, there is one bolt in the front of the tensioner pulley (15mm) that holds the tensioner in pace. Make sure that it is tight, no play in the part. There really is no "tightening" of the belt because that is the tensioner's job. If your belt is loose or squeaking you may want to replace the part. That is what I am doing. I have a 2004 Ram 2500 4x4 w/ 5.7L HEMI and am replacing the tensioner. There are 80K miles on the rig and I maintain it meticulously. Troubleshooting the consistent squeaking after the belt r&r I decided it is the tensioner and my mechanic conferred. Oreilly's has the OEM part for $45 (DODGE HOUSE IS $75.00) and it will take 20 minutes to change the tensioner and reinstall the new belt.

On a 94 corsica what all needs to be removed before you can replace the serpentine belt?

Getting the serpentine belt onMost vehicles don't require you to remove parts to install the serpentine belt. Most vehicles have a diagram on the hood or under the hood showing the proper alignment and direction of a serpentine belt. There is a tensioner that must be pulled to allow you to install the belt. With out a 1/2" Socket wrench you will not be able to put the belt on your car. If you don't have a diagram and cant find the tensioner pulley I suggest asking a mechanic for help. Its not time consuming if you know what your doing. I can change my serpentine belt in 10 mins MAX, on my Lincoln caddy and x terra. None of them require removing a part.

How do you tighten the belt tightener for the alternator belt on a 1994 crown Victoria?

On that year there is no tensioner for the alternator. However there is a tensioner for the entire serpentine belt. It looks like a turkey leg with a wheel on the small end. there is a 3/8" square hole that you can insert a breaker bar to releave tension on the tensioner. It is on the front of the engine on the left front side. If there is excessive slack on the belt you may lose power, power steering, water pressure, and a few other things. So if you are not familiar with this, it is best to have a mechanic check the belt tension.

How do you fix a timing belt tensioner on 97 Saturn SC2 What is cost if mechanic does it?

A 97 SC2 does not have a timing belt, it has a timing CHAIN. The timing chain tensioner is INSIDE the engine, behind the oil pump. Replacing the timing chain tensioner is a complex process, requiring substantial engine dis-assembly, and you should replace the timing chain and sprockets at the same time.HOWEVER...If, as I suspect, you are being told that you need to replace the serpentine belt tensioner, it's a relatively simple process, back off the old tensioner, remove the belt (may as well put on a new one when you're done), a couple bolts and the old tensioner is gone, then put the new one in it's place, tighten it up and install the new belt. Probably a 15 minute process if you have all of the tools and supplies with you. NOTE, it will be much easier if you remove the passenger side tire, pull out the inner fender liner (for access to the engine), and work on it from there.

Replacing a timing belt on a Ford Contour?

Replacing the timing belt on a Ford Contour involves removing the right motor mount, removing the serpentine belt, crankshaft pulley, and idler pulleys, removing the upper and lower timing belt covers and loosing the timing belt tensioner. It would be wise to replace the tensioner. The whole kit is about $160. You have to buy a timing tool to properly do the job. Cost about $45. Upon installation the camshafts need to be aligned with the crankshaft using the top dead center timing mark on the crankshaft pulley and slots in the crank shafts. That's where the timing tools come in. The kit has step by step instructions. Total parts will run about $200, but a mechanic is gonna charge $5-600 so it's worth it.

What is the average cost of replacing serpentine belt on 2004 Hyundai Accent?

Belts are relatively easy to replace with a little knowhow. They generally cost less than $50. If you are interesting in doing it yourself pick up a chiltons or haynes manual at your auto store. Serpentine belts typically take less than 30 seconds to replace. So make sure you are not getting ripped off by a mechanic telling you its a big deal.

Does the Serpentine belt on a 1997 Honda Passport have to be replaced by a certified mechanic Or can I change it myself?

That depends on your level of competence. It's not difficult, in fact it's one of he most simple jobs. You do, however, need to really look closley at the routing of the serpentine belt and make sure you make a drawing. That's the most common problem. To replace the serp belt, just back off the tensioner, pull the old belt off then put the new one back in it's place.
