Loosen the bolt in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the pulley and remove the belt. There is 3 bolts behind the idler pulley that remove the entire pulley assembly. One is located above the pulley to the top right and the other 2 bolts are below the pulley on either side. It will help to take the wheel off and remove the plastic access panel behind the wheel to the front side of the axle. Then you can drop the pulley out from the bottom and replace the pulley or whole assembly either one at this point. Reverse instructions to reassemble.


Are you talking about the "idler pulley"? They are quite simple to change. Loosen the serpentine belt by using a socket on the center of the tensioner pulley, slide the belt off the idler pulley, use a socket to pull the center bolt of the idler pulley and replace the pulley with a new one.

Remove serpentine belt. Remove pulley. Install new pulley. Install serpentine belt.


The idler pulley is mounted on a plate that needs to be removed. In order to remove the plate with the idler pulley, you must remove the engine mount to get out the idler pulley. To remove the engine mount, you need to jack-up the engine from the bottom of the oil pan (Note: place a piece of wood plank between the bottom of the oil pan and the jack).

The idler pulley is located just under the A/C compressor. There is a bolts in the middle of the pulley that needs to be removed and the idler pulley can be removed. Sometimes these bolts stick and my need to be pryed off. You may also want to removed the radiator fans cow to give you some extra room.


I assume you mean the idler pulley on the A/C belt. I have not replaced this particular item but it should be simple. Looking from the top of the engine compartment on the passenger side you will see the idler pulley with a mounting/locking bolt which attaches the pulley and the tension adjusting point immediately above it. Loosen the pulley locking bolt by turning counter clockwise. Relieve belt tension by turning the adjuster bolt counter clockwise. Remove the belt and pulley. Replace in the reverse order.


Remove serpentine belt. Unbolt old pulley. Install new one & serpentine belt.



The idler pulley has nothing to do with the brakes. If the idler pulley is bad it could throw or break a belt, and then your engine will stop.
