How to change a Chevy metro ac belt.

It's been a while, I still have the car (130K) but it's pretty easy, if I remember right.

1. It's easier if jack up the passenger side of the car. But it is not a "have to".

2. You don't absolutly have to remove the plastic engine compartment cover, but it's easier if you do-it makes it easier to see what your doing. They just snaps/pry out, if you break one of the fastners you can cable tie it back or go to auto parts store and get another plastic fastner. If you've done it before you can 'kinda reach around the cover.

3. There is a bolt to slip a socket on and by turning it one way or another you either tighten or loosen the belt. Keep turning till you get enough slack to slip the belt off. make sure to look at exactly where the belt goes.

4. Take it off, slide the new one back on and tighten till it seems reaspnably OK.

5. The bad/dangerous thing is; that to tighten the belt properly you should have the engine running and turn the adjusting belt until the squealing noise goes away. A car withan engine running and belts whirling around looks dangerous because it is!!!Be careful !!! You are on your own- with not second chances!!! You might have to drive it a bit and do it again.

There is a tensioner between the crankshaft and the A/C compressor that has a bolt where it is attached to the vehicle. Loosen this bolt and the tensioner will move, allowing the belt to be placed around pulleys. When the bolt is tightened, it will put tension on the belt automatically.
