I assume you mean the idler pulley on your timing assembly, if this is the case then the belt is too tight loosen tensioner pulley. if you mean the automatic tensioner pulley for your alternator and A/C and the like, the you probably need a new tensioner] Good Luck

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.

How do you change the idler pulley on a 1994 explorer?

On the belt routing diagram under the hood (near the grille, but under the hood) you will find the location of the 'tensioner' pulley. You need to get a 15mm socket and place it on the bolt on the tensioner pulley. Then use a ratchet to put clockwise pressure on the bolt to loosen the tension on the belt. This will allow you to remove the belt from the idler pulley, remove the bolt, put on the new pulley. Now put clockwise pressure on the tensioner pulley again to put slack in the belt so you can slip it around the new idler pulley. You're done.

How do you loosen the idler pulley on a 1994 landcruiser?

The idler pulley is attached by a 14mm hex head bolt. Although the pulley turns counter-clockwise, suggesting that the bolt might be left-handed threads, it is in fact right-handed. A 1/2" drive ratchet with a 14mm socket will loosen the bolt if turned in a counter-clockwise direction. Be sure and loosen the belt tensioner, located below the alternator, and loosen but not remove the other alternator bolts, prior to removing the idler pulley.
