remove serpentine belt center bolt in idler remove, and install new pulleyand rplace belt the way it came off
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 water pump and timing components should be replaced at intervals specified by manufacturer and you may replace just the idler pulley.
no those cars suck
The 1999 Jeep Cherokee employs an interesting idler pulley assembly. What you need to do is:1. Remember the belt routing, it's not printed under the hood.2. Loosen the 15mm hex nut on the idler pulley3. There's a bracket that the idler pulley is connected to and a 15mm tensioning bolt to turn to release the tension off of the belt.Jeep Cherokees seem to like Premium belts best.
There is only one belt, the serpentine belt. All you will need is a ratchet, and an extension to place in the idler pulley.
The timing belt needs to be replaced about every 100k miles. Actually the recommended interval is 105,000 miles. You also replace the tensioner and idler pulley at this time
The idler pulley is on a spring loaded arm. To release the tension, use a long breaker bar, or a long pipe on a box wrench. Use the proper size wrench or socket, and put it on the idler pulley bolt head. Rotate the idler arm assembly in a counter clock-wise direction and the tension will be released. Then you can remove the belt. Hint use rubber bands to keep the belt on the other pulleys while replacing the alternator. Joedi
All you have to do is loosen the idler pulley and the belt is a snap after you do that. just tightin bolt after the belt is on. good to go
there are two different sizes for that year since a split of of months one is a 70mm or a 60mm pulley and one on the bottom 47mm take off timing cover to see and the crankshaft pulley
Best to get a shop manual for this operation, if you have not replaced it before. Usually there is an "Idler Pulley" on many late model cars that is "spring loaded". You "Bias" this pulley using the big nut in the middle of the pulley (usually with a socket wrench) so that the serpentine belt has enough slack in it so you can remove it. Install new belt by reverse procedure. TommyTrouble
Starting with the crankshaft pulley go clockwise 1. automatic tensioner 2. alternator 3. powersteering pump 4. idler pulley 5. A/C compressor
If it keeps breaking and not just slipping off you've probably got a pulley that is locking up. You'll just have to find which one it is.....A/C, power steering, idler pulley, etc.
did you check the water pump, alternator and anything else that might have a pulley?
Have you checked if its a belt or a chain?
remove belts idler is to close to fire wall to come off after you remove nut.jack up car and put stands under.how put a jack under engine . remove top motor mount bolt and jack engine up this will give you the room to change idler pully.
how to replace the rear bearings on a 1999 Honda fourtrax ATV
cant adjust must replace
Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley on your 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The alternator belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new alternator belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.
no the bolt on the pulley does not need to be loosen just put ur wrench or rachet on the bolt head and turn either way till the pulley moves
There isn't a flagpole pulley on mine.
Turn it left to loosen, and do NOT overtighten because you don't want to ruin threads (they may be damaged if last person that installed pulley over-tightened it).
Changing an Idler Arm on a '99 Saturn is MIGHTY difficult, especially since they don't have one. The '99 Saturn uses a Rack and Pinion steering system, and as such does not have an idler arm.
