Just got my 2004 F350 back from the shop and they had to remoce shroud for easier access
There is a diagram under the hood, either on the hood or the radiator shroud.
Sometimes it has to be removed, sometimes you can loosen it on one side to be able to slip the belt past to remove and replace it.
No but sometimes it makes it easier The serpentine belt is easily removed without removing the fan shroud This has to be accomplished by using a tensioner wrench
Raise up on the tensoiner and remove the belt then replace it using the schematic on the fan shroud or in the owners manual.
You should have a belt routing diagram sticker on top of the radiator shroud. I've also included a video that shows right where this sticker is and how to replace the serpentine belt on your truck.
Take off fan shroud and fan. Loosen belt tensioner. When you take of belt remember how it went on and just replace.
It SHOULD be on the shroud above the radiator if it hasn't been removed. OR on the underside of the hood. IF all that fails, go to Autozone.
check on your fan shroud there should be a diagram on there for serpentine belt, etc. Clean your shroud off as it may be dirty or oily and you may not see it immediately.
first let the engine cool, takeoff the serpentine belt, fan shroud and fan assembly off of the pulley, then unbolt the water pump, take it off clean off the old gasket. then do the reverse, put on the new water pump bolt it in place, put the fan on then the fan shroud the the serpentine belt.
follow the instructions on the fan shroud
it doesn't have to be removed, but it does help
If the diagram is not still on your radiator shroud or the underneath side of your hood, your GM dealer has the stickers or fiche to show the routing.
Should be on top of the engine shroud.
Isn't it on the fan shroud?
First you take the air induction vent off from over the radiator shroud. It just pops off from the shroud. Next you look down beside the radiator and you will see bolts that you have to take loose. The radiator shroud is a 2 piece shroud. Once you get the top shroud out you can take the idler pulley loose and take the serpentine belt loose and take the fan blade off. You will be surprised with the room in there once you get that out of the way. I changed mine in about an hour. While you have all that out checked your idler pulley tension because after i replaced the water pump the idler pulley went bad and i had to replaced the serpentine belt again.
Hi their should be a diagrahm on or around the fan shroud
The diagram is on the radiator fan shroud.
look at the diagram that's on the fan shroud
I'd say the fan is loose or is hitting something like the fan shroud, check it out and if it is loose tighten it, if it is hitting the shroud you may need to cut or bend the shroud a little. try to find out why it is hitting the shroud and repair that, try to move things around, something may have come loose.
you tube has detailed instructions. there are 3 or 4 screws (depends on model) that need removed to take the shroud off
I have a 95 GC Laredo and the routing diagram for the serpentine belt is on the fan shroud. Perhaps yours is there as well?
Pry the tensioner and remove the old belt. Then reinstall it with the schematic on the fan shroud. If no schematic, draw one before you remove it. Don't rely on memory.
Requires removal of: Fan shroud, serpentine belt, fan, water pump, timing cover, crank pulley(s). Requires crank pulley puller/installer tools. Requires timing gear puller to remove crank gear. Replace chain and gears together. Replace with all-metal gears, not composite sets. On this vehicle it is recommended to replace the timing cover each time it is removed.
Pry the tensioner up to remove the tension on the belt. The schematic should be on the fan shroud. If not draw a schematic before removing the belt. Don't rely on memory.
