If you are under the car, the ac pulley is farthest forward and closest to the ground. It has a triangular bracket and 3 bolts on it. The small, smooth pulley just above it is the tensioning pulley.
To loosen it you need a 13mm box end wrench or a rather short socket. To relieve the tension on the belt attach the wrench to the bolt on the middle of the pulley and turn it clock-wise, it will move about 4 inches if you can push it far enough.
There is a PICTURE at this site!
use tensioner to loosen belt. Using a socket, remove the old tensioner..put the new one on and if you were careful, you should be able to slip belt right back in place.
1. Loosen the tensioner with a 3/8 inch ratchet in the hole and pull back. 2. Take the belt off the tensioner. 3. Take the side bolt going into the head off. 4. Take the tensioner off.
i have the four cylinder. the ac belt has a tensioner. in the center of the tensioner is a bolt/nut. loosen it slightly. under the tensioner looking toward the ground is a bolt head. turning it adjust the pulley. loosen this to put slack in the belt and remove the belt. put a new one on it and remove the slack with the one bolt then tighten the one in the center of the tensioner. be careful not to over tighten
place a wrench on the bolt in the center of the tensioner and push if you feel nothing push the other way and you will see that the whole assy is spring loaded and will move to release tension on the belt
there should be a tensioner pully. Put the 3/8 ratchet in the center of it and turn.
The idler pulley is the tensioner for the serpentine belt. To loosen it, do the following... - Notice the bolt in the centre of the idler pulley. Find the appropriate socket. - Using your rachet (set to loosen) put the socket on the bolt so that the rachet handle is pointing towards the windsheild. - Push down on the rachet handle. The tensioner will give slack to the belt. (careful because it is under spring tension) - While holding the tensioner down slip the belt off. Gently allow the tensioner to spring back slowly until it stops.
Disconnect negative battery terminal. Loosen the serpentine belt - loosen the tensioner. Disconnect the alternator connections at the terminals. Slip the serpentine belt off the alternator pulley and pull the alternator out. Install is reverse.
loosen bolt at center of tensioner pulley slightly, locate Phillips screw directly behind pulley facing up and turn counter clockwise to release tension on belt.
Loosen the tensioner (It's the only pulley out of 7 that is not attached to a unit) by using a 15MM wrench, then loosen the tensioner screw on the upper left of the tensioner bracket (15MM as well), until you can remove the old belt, replace w/new belt and tighten screw then center tensioner bolt. Be careful of ADVANCE AUTO PARTS.....They like to give you the wrong belt. A good belt to use is the DRIVE RITE serpentine belt (Part No. 950K6), assuming you have a 4.0Ltr engine. Hope this helps!
there is no repair for a belt tensioner. just buy a new tensioner. remove old belt, remove old tensioner, it is held on with one bolt. install new tensioner. install new belt
suspension settings on front and rear shocks on 1999,kx 250
The cast of Suspension - 1999 includes: Steven Oliver Price as Shadow
Bolts on the caliper of a 1999 Monte Carlo will loosen to the left and tighten to the right.
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Rotate the belt tensioner to loosen the belt tension. Remove the belt. Install the new belt making sure that the belt goes over the pulleys in the same manner as the old one. Release the tensioner, and reconnect the battery.
Jiangyin Suspension Bridge was created in 1999.
You must release the tension on the belt. Do this by moving the tensioner back. It may have a square hole in the bracket that a ratchet will fit, and it may have another method. It does go back if done correctly.
Remove surpentine belt,then take out bolt that goes through tensioner to engine.
The front wheel hub on a 1999 Chevy Lumina is connected to several suspension components. Loosen and remove all the components including the lower and upper ball joints. Pull off the hub assembly and install the replacement.
if your belt is loose, the tensioner probably needs replacing. the tensioner is the mechanism that keeps the belt tight.
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.
The tensioner for the serpentine belt on a 1999 SL-1 is located just below and forward of the power steering pump (which is close to the firewall). You will be able to see it with a good light because it has a square fitting exposed that either a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench will fit on. It is not extremely easy to reach, especially if you have big hands. When you do get a wrench on it, turn it clockwise and the belt will loosen right up. Remember, the tensioner is under spring tension, so ease the wrench off slowly.
You first need to loosen the Idler pully nut that the power steering and altenater belt rides on. Then right behind the idler pully you need to loosen the bolt counter clockwise until tension is released enough to get belt off. Then loosen retainer bolt just below tensioner on a/c belt. You then need to move down tensioner to install/remove a/c belt(best results with braker bar). Repeat steps backwards and tighten all bolts to install. Travis
tension pullys have a small square in the side that a rachet will fit in.. they are "spring loaded" and if you put a ratchet in it you should be able to pull it back with ease and remove the belt hope this helps
1. Pull the tensioner back with a 3/8 inch breaker bar and remove the belt. 2. Take the bolt holding the tensioner onto the head out. 3. Take the tensioner off.
