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.
Give the belt a couple of quick, short tugs to relieve the tension. The belt is most likely jammed. Then if it releases, pull it out slowly. If you pull the belt out too fast, it will often lock up. My mistake, I thought seat belt. The pulley that doesn't connect to anything like the crank or alternator is the tension pulley. It is spring loaded. Some have a place for a ratchet to go or you pry against the housing or the pulley itself as long as you don't pinch the belt. Relieve the tension and slip the belt off of another pulley and release the tension.
did you try removing the alternator first? no i didn't try to remove the alternator first
Just to get it off? Try using a single edge razor blade. It will have what is called an idler pulley probably, most do, This pulley serves only one purpose, to keep the belt tight. This pulley can be levered, probably to a slack position, usually downward and the belt can then be removed.
Its actually pretty easy to do. Just about with all vehicles. You need to find your tension pulley. It is the pulley with a spring on it. Attach a socket to that pulley and pull it until the tension on the belt lossens up. The belt will drop off. To put the new belt on just follow the diagram that is usally on the cowl above the radiator that shows how the belt goes around all the pulleys. Use the belt tension pulley to get it on and the tensioner will automatically tighten to the belt. Make sure you get the right size belt for your truck. I'm not sure exactly where the tension pulley is on that car but it should show you on the diagram. It's very easy and you will be shocked how easy it is. Good luck.
The crankshaft pulley is the large pulley on the lower passenger side of the engine.

how do i change the alternator in my 2001 ford focus?
The 2001 Ford Focus has 16 valves.
There should be 1 or more idlers to maintain tension. Just pull against their spring tension w/prybar to gain slack & remove. Just study belt layout carefully before you pull it off unless there is a diagram somewhere under the hood.
Tension - band - was created in 2001.

To release tension on the Serpentine belt on a 2001 pathfinder you need the following tools: 10mm open wrench, 12mm socket, long socket extension, socket breaker bar, 14mm socket. Start from above the engine, loosen the fan hood from radiator, use 10mm to loosen the fan from the pulley, ( to remove the belts later), leave up against the radiator but out of your way. Remove the plastic skid plate from under the front bumper. Use the 14mm & breaker bar to loosen the nut on the tensioning pulley, then look at back of pulley- you will see a threaded bolt that is operated with a 12mm wrench on the bolt. Now do the same to the other pulley on the other side of the engine. All tension is released from below the engine.By loosening this bolt you will relieve the tension on the pulley to allow changing of the Serpentine belt. Reverse the procedure after replacing the belts. Check for proper tension and monitoir that nuts on fan are tightened correctly.
