Tools: Eye protection, wrench, Allen wrench or both to loosen the idler pully, a socket and long handled braker bar to loosen the tensioner. First, check the size of the wrench you will need to remove the idler pully (either a nut on the back of the pully or an Allen wrench from the front.) do not loosen! Next find a socket that will fit the tensioner (The tensioner is the only pully on an arm) At the tensioner there is a nut that the socket will fit (don't worry you cannot remove the nut as it is built into the tensioner) attach socket and braker bar to the tensioner. Either push or pull the braker bar and the tensioner will either tighten the serpentine belt or loosen it. Loosen it and hold breaker bar in place by letting it rest against something (holding the breaker bar for 10 to 15 minutes is the pitts) Only pull the belt off one pully (such as the alternator or AC) Once the belt is off one of the pullys, slowly release the breaker bar. It will travel beyond its normal traveling area. You may have to put the belt back on the tensioner and reposition the socket and breaker bar to get the travel you need to remove the belt. If you are changing the belt, make sure you have a diagram to reinstall the belt. The idler pully can now be removed using the other wrench. To reinstall reverse the procedure and slip the belt over the pullys and check to make sure that all the belt grooves are in all the pully grooves. Have someone start the car with instructions to shut the car off immediatly if the belt is not installed correctly. (Be extra carefull when starting the car. Do not get to close as if the belt is installed incorrectly it can jump out and bite you) tata G
Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing). Reverse to install Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing).
The idler pulley is between the alternator and the A/C compressor.
The idler pulley on any vehicle is used to maintain the proper tension on the vehicle's belt(s). without it belt maintenance would be difficult.
Remove your idler pulley first. it is the pulley right next to the alternator.
Remove serpentine belt. Remove pulley. Install new pulley. Install serpentine belt.
to change the one below alternator you need to take belt off take alternator out and bracket to get at it. the tensioner pulley you need to take belt off loosen the three bolt on assembly the pulley itself has reverse threads on it it would be a good idea to change both of them
The idler tensioner pulley on your 1999 Ford F3 50 pickup truck is held in place with a single retaining bolt. The retaining bolt will go through the middle of the pulley. Tighten the retaining bolt to install the tensioner pulley.
you have another pulley and that the tensioner pulley and it is spring loaded and it keeps the belts and pulleys tighten .If its bad it will cause that sound
replace the belt with a goodyear bet
You adjust the idler pulley. It needs to be done by an expert, or it will shred.

I have changed the idler pulley here recently on my 2001 ford ranger 3.0L, I dont know how off the top of my head, but a Haynes or Chilton's manual is the absolute best moneysaver you could ever buy for that truck. It will tell you how to tear it down and put it back together. They run about 15 bucks but it will pay for itself over and over again! I hope I could help.
The A/C compressor is located on the bottom of passenger side of the engine. It is the unit between the crankshaft pulley and the idler pulley. It is driven by the serpentine accessory belt.
The bolt on the idler pull loosens the normal direction, lefty loosey on the ford ranger 3.0 engine. If you look lower, you'll notice the tension pulley. You can tell it's the tension pulley by the pivoter arm that it's bolted to. Take the proper size wrench or socket, and turn clockwise as if you were to tighten it. It takes a little bit of force, but the whole arm assembly should turn down taking tension off the belt. You can then slide the serpentine off of the idler pulley and remove the pulley.
check your idler pulley and tesioner pulley
Misaligned or bent pulley. Defective idler pulley. Incorrect belt being installed. The belt must be an exact match, or it will self destruct.
You call Dr. Laura; but it has to WANT to change.
yes it does i just took one off
Probably the serpentine belt idler pulley bearing.
Possible belt stretch or an idler not applying proper tension for some reason.
What engine ?
