The tensioner is most likely bad and not just the pulley. If the spring is weak look at the original marks on the original pulley. The belt should ride towards the engine side of the pulley and not the rounded outer edge. ... 1993 Chrysler Town & Country

Hey there. I am replacing Problem with the 1997 Taurus hey there. I am replacing the serpentine belt on my 1997 Ford Taurus. The idle pulley bearings were shot, so the old belt actually slipped off. I am about to replace the idle pulley. I have loosened off the tension pulley, but for the life of me cannot get the serpentine belt back on. I am about half an inch from getting in on ? the new belt is exactly the same length as the old one. Is the tension pulley supposed to spring forward or back?


Make sure the tensioner is tight,it has a spring in it to move clockwise,do not leave any bolt loose,make sure you are routing the belt where the tension holds the belt on,not other way.\015\012\015\012\015\012Tim ... 1997 Ford Taurus

This pulley should be spring loaded and you should have a diagram of the belt path on a label under the hood. There should be a square hole in the casting for a breaker bar or rachet to use as a lever to push or pull the pulley.\015\012\ ... 1997 Ford Taurus

I have a 1995 cadillac concours deville with a northstar engine and I replaced my serpentine belt, after I replaced it, it was still loose and I tightened it as tight as I could. The belt was the right size, so I figured it was slipping because I didn't clean the pulleys. So I scrubbed the pulleys,bought a new belt, put the new belt on and it was still loose. Do u think I need to replace my tensioner? Or is there a way I can adjust my tensioner?


No adjustment, proper routing? if so tensioner need replacement. ... 1995 Cadillac DeVille

My belt tensioner pulley broke at the bolt that bolts to the bracket. I bought a new one and I was wondering if there was an easier way to replace the tensioner pulley other than removing both the upper alternator bracket and the belt tensioner pulley bracket which is also what holds the lower portion of the alternator. The problem is I don.t have any room able to tighten the assembly nut. Thanks. David. [email protected]

2006 Toyota Corolla LE. Loud squeaking coming from serpentine belt area after I start the engine cold. Changed the belt recently but still noice persist. Loud squeaking goes away after driving for 3-5 mins. I'm thinking it's the belt tensioner pulley or the belt tensioner itself. If it's the pulley, how do it, or is it possible to, replace just the pulley from the belt tensioner. Also how would I be able to get to it as the space is really limited. Thanks!


It is probably the tensioner pulley that's gone bad. It can be replaced separately, if you can purchase the pulley separately. As to how to go about changing it in such a small space, it's definitely possible, with the right type of tools. That's why ... 2006 Toyota Corolla

We have a chripping/squeek sound under the hood of our 97 chev tahoe. We have replaced the belt tensioner, the center pulley and the alternator. The sound would go away for a day then come back. I think the power steering pulley is the problem, can we just replace the pulley or do we have to replace the whole power steering pump? Please help us my husband is going crazy w/this sound.


I can see why you replaced the tensioner. This is the most common cause of this problem and you might not believe how many questions I have been getting about this problem! This is a long shot but, it's worth a try. Spray some silicone lubricant into ... Chevrolet Tahoe

My truck had a vaccum belt burning smell, I replaced the fan belt and the idler pulley as recommended by parts store to fix problem. I tried to replace tension pulley also but could not get bolt loose to replace, will try again later. After belt replacement still had smell and truck did not restart. jumped truck and it started immediately, but when I tried to back out it died and would not restart again. I think the alternator is shot and that is the source of smell and starting problem, but


Sounds like your alternator. you can pull of and have tested for free at most parts stores. batteries should be ok. it is best to charge them and not just crank up and let vehicle charge them from completly dead this will cause an extreme pull on the ... 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

My 1996 ford windstar 3.8 liter engine tensioner pulley is making a vibrating noise . do I have to replace the whole arm or just the pulley or both? Also ,if I just have to replace the pulley is the bolt that holds it very long since the area around this pulley is limited.


It probably comes as a unit. tensioners create tension by way of spring and springs do wear out over time. so it may be beneficial to change the whole tensioner. there is a bolt in the center of the tensioner remove it and on reinstall remeber to l ... 1996 Ford Windstar

The hinge tensioners that hold the tailgate open/up have broken off on both rear hinge assemblies on my 2005 Volvo XC70 due to accidentally leaving the tailgate open then hooking it in the open overhead garage door while backing out of the garage.

Can I replace the tension bars or do I need to replace the two complete hinge assemblies?

The crankshaft pulley on my daughter's '98 Maxima is broken (outside rim is cracked and loose) and the inside belt is twisted and shredded. If I replace the pulley, should that fix the problem our should I look for some underlying cause?

He replaced the belt and something in the tensioning pulley (the mounting shaft from her description) because it wasn't turning. Maybe he is the unde
