If its the 3.4L it has an automatic tensioner. look right under the alternator and there is a pulley. That pulley and arm is the tensioner. To release the tension, there is a bolt on the inside of the pulley, put a wrench on it and pull like you are trying to tighten the bolt. The arm is spring loaded and will pull up, releasing tension.

How do you get 2002 Toyota rav 4 serpentine belt on?

Regardless of what type of vehicle you have, it is extremely difficult to replace a serpentine belt w/o a serpentine un-tension-er tool. This is a thin, long handle with a socket on the end that sticks out at 90 degrees of the handle. The socket slips onto the bolt-head of the tension-er pulley. Once the serpentine belt is threaded around all the other pulleys you put the un-tension-er tool on the tension-er pulley bolt and pull (or push) to achieve slack in the serpentine belt and slip it on the tension-er pulley.


How do you relieve the tension on serpentine belt in a 1990 Corsica 3.1 Lt?

there's a spring loaded tension-er on the right side of the engine.. look at your belt diagram on your engine and you'll see the belt tension-er looking like it's pointing to the northeast of the little diagram.. the easiest way to relieve the pressure is get a crowbar, pull up on the tension-er until it relieves the pressure. I'm actually putting a new belt on my 91' 3.1 Corsica

First, Disconnect the negative battery terminal from the battery. Then remove the A/C belt. Next remove the serpentine belt. Then remove the idler pulley using a 15mm closed end wrench.

How do you replace 2000 wrangler 2.5l water pump?

I am about to do this project in a day or so, but I do know that you'll need to start by taking serpentine belt (drive belt) off. With a metric 15mm wrench loosen the center bolt on belt tension-er pulley. (If you do not know where this is--STOP--take to garage). Now, after writing down a diagram of EXACTLY how the belt goes to your engine,loosen tension-er and remove the drive belt (serpentine). With a 10mm wrench-remove the 4 lock nuts to fan and remove. If you are timid to do any of this, my advice to you is get a HAYNE'S manual to your Jeep at AutoZone (or, your local parts store) read and follow.
