first you should release the belt tension pully and remove the belt. Then the idler pully has a bolt through the center remove the bolt and the pully should come 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.

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

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

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

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

User Avatar

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.

There isn't a flagpole pulley on mine.

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.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

The 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis has (2) TWO engine styles, both different. The style for Vin numbers with a "W" engine, and the Vin numbers with an "X". The "W" series has the A/C Compressor to the RIGHT of the engine when viewed from the front. The belt circles all components from the outside but two (2). The idler wheel located on top to the right of the alternator, and the tensioner pulley, located to the right and between the Crank and Water pump pulleys. The belt goes UNDER the idler pulley, and passes to the Tensioner pulley BETWEEN the crank pulley and the water pump pulley. As for the "X" series... The Belt goes, in clockwise rotation, from the outside looking AT the engine: Starting with the top most component, OUTSIDE the Alternator, OUTSIDE the steering pump, INSIDE the water pump (V grooves on belt showing),OUTSIDE the crankshaft pulley, INSIDE the tensioner (V grooves on belt showing, again),OUTSIDE the A/C Compressor, and then towards the Alternator again. The Idler wheel presses against the belt on this return leg from the smooth side.
