Remove the Right wheel and inner plastic fender which will allow you access to the tensioner side of the motor. There will be a few bolts holding into place on the block. Remove the bolts and remove the entire tensioner assembly. Reverse for replacement.

You don't. The belt tension is automatically adjusted via a spring loaded tensioner. If the serpentine belt is noisy or worn out prematurely. replace the tensioner. The belt should be inspected for cracks and other signs of wear. Replace worn out belt(s) before they break leaving you stranded.

Remove the serpentine belt. Tensioner is below Alternator. Remove the three mounting bolts on the tensioner baracket assembly. Replace entire unit.

Powe stering belt (aka serpentine belt) is tightened with a belt tensioner. A new tensioner is needed if the belt is loose or a new belt

The serpentine belt on a 1997 Mercedes C280 is replaced by loosening the belt tensioner and sliding the belt off. It can then be pulled from the remaining engine accessories and a new belt installed.

The serpentine belt tensioner is spring loaded. There is no adjustment.

slacken tensioner with a long wrench, then slip belt off. Replace opposite way. Takes about 15 minutes.

It will be the smooth pulley(s)-not ribbed.

There is a spring loaded tensioner that is supposed to keep the serpentine tight. If it is loose, it needs to be replaced.

Should be a square hole either 3/8" or 1/2" place a breaker bar in this hole and push or pull to relieve tension on belt tensioner to remove belt

You can't !! 1. make sure you're using the proper ( sized ) belt. 2. replace tensioner - it's spring loaded.

push back on tensioner, then re move belt.

The belt tensioner is located at the bottom of the power steering pump looking at it from the front the tensioner is on the bottom left. you could always loosen the alternator up a little. My 1997 with a 4.0 does not have a tensioner pulley, and I believe the 99s are the same. the alternator is the tensioner. Remove one of the bolts and it will swivel in and you can get the belt off

If it has a serpentine belt should be done by tensioner unless it is defective

User Avatar

You dont! The belt is self adjusting with the belt tensioner. Check the tensioner for failure or damage if your belt is loose good luck

Note:The drivebelt routing decal on the radiator shroud to help during drivebelt install * To replace the belt rotate the tensioner pulley clockwise to release belt tension * Remove the belt from the auxiliary components and slowly release the tensioner * Route the new belt over the various pulleys again rotating the tensioner to allow the belt to be installed then release the belt tensioner

you probably need to replace a serpentine belt or a tensioner. check your belt and pulleys for abnormal wear and proper tension

If you can get at it, disconnect your battery and go for it, Basicaly the same procedure but with a serpentine belt and auto tensioner i presume.

There is only one serpentine belt and it has an automatic tensioner. It doesn't need to be "adjusted"

User Avatar

Look in the engine compartment for the "serpentine belt" path & tensioner diagram. Release the belt tension at the tensioner, remove & reverse operation.

Remove belt and tensioner should just be bolted to engine

You cannot adjust the tension on this, it has a spring inside of it. If it is weak, it must be replaced.
