should have spring loaded tensioner nonadjustable
you do not adjust tension on a serpentine belt the tension is automatcally adjusted if the belt is loose, replace the belt SOME TIMES THE TENSIONER CAN BE WEEK ALSO.
Your Explorer has a serpentine belt tensioner which keeps the proper tension on the serpentine belt unless the tensioner has failed.
Tension is automatic. There is no adjustment.
Automatic tensioner- no adjustment required, or provided. If the tensioner is out of limits, replace the tensioner.
The correct belt tension will be maintained by the belt tensioner. The tension is not adjustable on this car.
try tightening the tension pully works like a charm
The alternator is usally on an adjustable slide mounted to the engine. If you adjust the alternator on that slide to take the tension off the belt you should be good to go to put the new belt on. The routing diagram for routing the serpentine belt should be on a placard mounted under the hood on the frame. It should also be in your user's/maintenance manual. Make sure to adjust the alternator properly on its slide mount so that there is sufficient tension in the belt.
Use a breaker bar in the belt tensioner to relax tension and then remove/replace belt
There is no adjustment, they use a belt tensioner to keep it tight. If it is loose it need to be replaced.
he tensioner keeps the right amount of tension on the belt. If it is lose, the tensioner needs replaced.
how do you chance a serpentine belt on a 1996 ford escort
thay adjust themself
You adjust the idler pulley. It needs to be done by an expert, or it will shred.
LOOK! It is right there applying tension to the belt. If you can't find it, then you have no business attempting to replace it.
replace the belt with a goodyear bet
Possible belt stretch or an idler not applying proper tension for some reason.
The tension on a 1988 Ford F150 can be loosened by adjusting the belt tensioner. The retaining bolt is loosened, the tensioner shifted slightly, and tightened down.
Release the tension on the belt using the tension pulley. Install new belt. I have a diagram for a 2002 will sent it and more detailed info if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I need daigram of 2001 ford focus se serpentine belt
No. You need to replace the tensioner.
No you can not. You need to replace the tensioner.
Buy a Chevy!!!! That was a big help. Most but not all serpentine belt systems have a spring loaded tension pulley that just holds constant tension on the belt. If there is a tension pulley, it will be the one pulley that is not attached to anything like the alternator or AC. After that, the alternator is the most likely to be the one that adjusts.
I need the routing for the serpentine belt for 1990 Ford 150?
This vehcile uses a serpentine belt. The belt tension is set automatically by the tensioner. If the tensioner is stuck and will not apply tension to the belt then it is defective and needs replacing.
Away from the serpentine belt
