The easiest way to access the pulley is to remove the front right wheel and fender liner. The pulley will be right behind the liner.

Use a wrench and pull down the tension pulley then just slide off starting w/AC


If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley. Pry the idler back and remove the belt.If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.

There is no tension adjustment. Tension is automatically adjusted by the idler pulley.


Serpentine belts use an pulley to keep tension on the belt. You need a breaker bar; attach to the tension pulley and turn the nut. One way will not move and the other way will loosen the belt. It will usually then just slide off that pulley and then come off all the rest.

You can change the serpentine belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. When the tensioner pulley is loose and the serpentine belt will become loose. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.


Changing the serpentine belt on a 97 Mitsubishi Diamante is a fairly easy task. All you need to do is get a wrench and loosen the tension pulley and pull of the serpentine belt.


u need to relaese tension on the tension pulley. this is usually done with a long socket wrench handle. when u release tension and remove belt you then release tension on pulley until you have routed new belt . you then move tension pulley again until you can put belt on it, then release pulley and it will automatically provide correct tension


You can change an idler pulley on a 2001 Monte Carlo by first, removing the negative cable from the battery. Using a socket wrench, loosen the tension adjustment bolt. Slide the serpentine belt away from the pulley. Remove?æthe center bolt, and remove the pulley from the engine. Replace the pulley,?æreturn and tighten the bolts, and replace the serpentine belt.


I used a breaker bar for the tension pulley to relieve the tension to remove the belt, I think there are three bolts that hold the tension pulley on, just remove them and reverse the procedure to install. Follow the diagram that is either on the inside of the hood or on the radiator cover on how to thread the belt back on the pulleys.


Regardless of what type of vehicle you have, it is extremely difficult to replace a serpentine belt w/o a serpentine un-tension-er tool. This is a thin, long handle with a socket on the end that sticks out at 90 degrees of the handle. The socket slips onto the bolt-head of the tension-er pulley. Once the serpentine belt is threaded around all the other pulleys you put the un-tension-er tool on the tension-er pulley bolt and pull (or push) to achieve slack in the serpentine belt and slip it on the tension-er pulley.


Loosen bolt in tension pulley, then loosen tension bolt. Replace belt. Tighten tension bolt. Last, tighten bolt through pulley.


Disconnect the battery.remove the serpentine belt.Unbolt the pulley.

A serpentine belt on an engine is held in place by a pulley that maintains the proper tension on the belt. This pulley can be pulled up to release the tension on the belt. Do not pull the pulley out, but gently up or you'll risk damaging it.


Hey Julie==It needs to be checked out as to what happened. There is supposed to be spring tension on the idler pulley. GoodluckJoe


tension pulley is an automatic tensioner that keeps the serpentine belt at the proper tension it is a single pulley that is smooth (no grooves) usually turning clockwise with constant pressure loosens pulley for belt removal use caution pulley is spring loaded


tenion pulley on serpentine belt will not release on 94 S-10 4 cy. with air


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.


you don't tighten a serpentine belt the tension is supplied by a tension pulley if belt is loose, it is time to replace belt or tension pully if tension pully needs repplacing belt will be worn anyway
