there is a special took that you can purchase that you have to insert into the tensioner and pull it up slowly and take off the belt, do the reverse to put it on

Disconnect the battery.remove the serpentine belt.Unbolt the pulley.

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.

You don't. The pulley is pretensioned by the manufacturer. If the belt tension is incorrect, the pulley must be replaced.

To relieve serpentine belt tension you need to use a Rachet arm or Breaker bar, the longer the better. (Many parts stores, such as Auto Zone will let you use their special tool made just for this purpose.) Fit the 3/8 square drive tip into a hole in the bracket which is attached to the Tension pulley. Once you insert the drive tip into the matching hole, simply turn the ratchet or breaker bar until the pulley rotates and releases the tension.

The tension of a rope in a single fixed pulley = WThe tension of a rope in a single movable pulley = W/2The tension of a rope in a multiple pulley system = W/ number of pulleys if they are in series.

When looking at the engine from the front, the tension pulley is the only wheel on the drive belt that has the belt on the inside of it. All of the other pulleys have the belt going around the top of the pulley. The tension pulley has a bolt that can be loosened and then tightened to remove the drive belt.

The tension pulley should have a bolt that holds it on, allowing you to replace the unit.

Yes, as long as the connections and pulley are the same and it will mount up.

If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley. Pry the idler back and remove the belt.If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.

It will be one of the smooth ones with no ribs.

tension pulley is an automatic tensioner that keeps the serpentine belt at the proper tension it is a single pulley that is smooth (no grooves) usually turning clockwise with constant pressure loosens pulley for belt removal use caution pulley is spring loaded

Initial tension force Fi is needed to counteract the centrifugal force Fc on the belt and thus keep the belt on the pulley. Fi essentially allows the belt to go around the pulley.

you dont adjust a tension pulley you adjust the position of the compressor to tighten the belt

what the devil is a tension pulley? there is a website where you can research this it's or you can go on google images and search it.

u need to relaese tension on the tension pulley. this is usually done with a long socket wrench handle. when u release tension and remove belt you then release tension on pulley until you have routed new belt . you then move tension pulley again until you can put belt on it, then release pulley and it will automatically provide correct tension

Loosen bolt in tension pulley, then loosen tension bolt. Replace belt. Tighten tension bolt. Last, tighten bolt through pulley.

Most cars now have a serpentine belt that drive the alternator, water pump, power steering unit, etc. The belt tension pulley is a spring loaded pulley that keeps the proper tension on all these units. It can be moved to release the tension in order to remove the belt.

To loosen a tension pulley on a 1991 Chrysler New Yorker, turn the nut in the center of the pulley. This will allow the pulley to slide in the cut-out groove so that the belt will loosen.

hey had this same prob u cant bypass it but you can buy a bypass pulley but gotta remove the compressor i tried to bypass with a belt but its not enough tension so get the pulley and your good to go

There should be a tensioning pulley that can be fitted with a socket and wrench. You can then pull the pulley thus loosening the tension on the belt and then pull the belt off. Install the same way.

The tension pulley is centerline with the engine and at the very top of the belt routing.

there should be a bolt that holds it on to the engine block, just take of thee belt and remove the tensioner.

With a self adjusting tensioner pulley, there is no adjustment for tension.
