Hey Chris==Pull up on the belt and you can see how the idler puller must move to release tension on the belt. The schematic for the belt should be on the fan shroud. If it isn't, draw a schematic before removing the old belt. Don't rely on memory. Goodluck Joe
A further suggestion. The belt tensioner uses a 1/2" breaker bar to de-tension the serpentine belt. I still had problems releasing the tension, so I used an 18" long, 1" (id) black iron pipe as an extension for my breaker bar. It makes a world of difference and one person can then de-tension the belt and remove or reinstall the belt over the alternator pulley.
check power steering pump or belt tension.
* To replace the belt rotate the tensioner counterclockwise on V6 models or clockwise on V8 models to relieve the tension on the belt * Remove the belt from the auxiliary components
To change belt?Use a 1/2 inch breaker bar and pull to relieve tension
put a wrench on the tensioner pully and pull it to release tension on the belt
The correct belt tension will be maintained by the belt tensioner. The tension is not adjustable on this car.
Usually you relieve tension on the tensioner pulley by pulling it to the left or right.
(This answer Covers the Ford Motor Company Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable with the 3.0L OHV "Vulcan" Engine and the 3.0L DOHC "Duratec" engines.)Installation notes:Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt in the middle of the tensioner pulley.On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counter-clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley.AnswerPut a wrench on the (spring loaded) tensioner/ider pulley and take out the tension. You can then remove the belt. Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley.
try tightening the tension pully works like a charm
Anything from the 1997 to 2000 will fit.
It does not have a timing belt it has a chain
One Serpentine Belt
there's a spring loaded tension-er on the right side of the engine.. look at your belt diagram on your engine and you'll see the belt tension-er looking like it's pointing to the northeast of the little diagram.. the easiest way to relieve the pressure is get a crowbar, pull up on the tension-er until it relieves the pressure. I'm actually putting a new belt on my 91' 3.1 Corsica
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.
use breaker bar with square drive in the square hole. takes 2 people to do safely, as belt is under a lot of tension A further suggestion. I use an 18" long, 1" (id) black iron pipe as an extension for my breaker bar. It makes a world of difference and one person can then de-tension the belt and slip the belt over the alternator pulley.
were do i find a diagram for the serpentine belt for a 01 ford expedition
That engine doesn't use a timing belt.
you do not adjust tension on a serpentine belt the tension is automatcally adjusted if the belt is loose, replace the belt SOME TIMES THE TENSIONER CAN BE WEEK ALSO.
This vehcile uses a serpentine belt. The belt tension is set automatically by the tensioner. If the tensioner is stuck and will not apply tension to the belt then it is defective and needs replacing.
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.
The 5.4 L , V8 engine in a Ford Expedition has ( 1 timing CHAIN to each cylinder head , so there are 2 timing CHAINS ) It doesn't have a timing belt
The idler pulley usually has a square cut hole which is designed for you to use a 1/2" drive socket breaker bar to relieve tension on the belt.
Using a 15mm wrench, turn the bolt in the center of the idler pulley clockwise to relieve tension and remove the belt.
Relieve the tension by putting a wrench on the tensioner and then remove the belt. www.trailvoy.com all the answers for your Trailblazer from true enthusiasts!
Usually, A serpentine belt system has a spring-loaded idler. Using the proper wrench, usually an 18mm, one can relieve the tension on the belt, making it relatively easy to change the belt. On most vehicles you will find a sticker either on the underside of the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment that shows how the belt goes on.
On the main drive serpentine belt, there is a tensioner pulle. it is positioned at 6:00. relieve tension remove belt. reverse process for reinstallation.
