Default Serpentine belt change.

Hello fellas, I am changing the belt this weekend and wanted some quick pointers from you guys. Anything special i should watch out for? Loosen the alternator first? Anything else i should replace? Also Does anyone have a diagram of how the belt runs (i got a feeling i will need it)? Thanks guys.

4.0. no ace, no sls.

Driver manual may show...if not you can draw it up before you take off the old one...or take a picture, but that'd be a funny angle I guess.

huh, the belt runs off of a tensioner.

pull the tensioner to the driverside and it lets off the tension.

yeah, just pull the tensioner. I wouldn't worry about loosening the alt...real easy job. Even eaiser if you have someone to help pull the tensioner while you thread off and on, but it can be done alone.
I think my rover has a photo of how the belt runs on the front end under the hood....or maybe thats the tacoma...

I just screw around until I find the proper arrangement.

OR if I remember, I take a permanent marker and accually draw under the hood somewhere the way it goes. Because odds are if you absolutely have to change the belt, you wont have a diagram (unless theres one under the hood).


I also always keep an old belt with me in the boot.

Good idea, keep the old belt. you never know in a pinch if your off road somewhere and you get screwed, when I change my belts. I compare the old belt with the (last old belt)
and which ever looks better becomes my new spare.

Yay old thread... this is the only one the search gave me of any relevance.



I'm guessing the design has changed somewhat for the 2004 4.6L? There are no pulleys that can simply be "pulled" towards any side of the vehicle - they are all fixed. I have the "tensioner" (according to RAVE, but I call BS) off (literally), and there is no way in hell that thing is going back on there (I would have to stretch the belt an inch to do so).

Now the bracket the tensioner is on could perhaps be turned if I loosened the 13mm bolt holding it on, but RAVE is saying: no, I should only be touching the 15mm on the pulley itself?



RAAR... help?

I've pulled what RAVE called the tensioner's bracket to find it an assembly that looks like it SHOULD allow me to rotate the arm with enough force, but it appears to be seized. I will be one with the PB Blaster in a few moments, but first I wanted to make sure I'm not about to totally screw the thing up...

Am I on the right track here? This is the part in question...

Answered my own questions on this one. Yep I was on the right track, yep it was just seized. PB Blaster to the rescue (took 2 treatments), belt done, remaining squeaks gone, and strange idle issue gone.

So frustrating! Threw the serpentine belt on 1999 disc 2. Figured out how to thread new one....can't find tensioner...where is it...passenger side, driver side, smooth or with grooves. All Data says use 15mm....loosened that and won't move...loosened every other pulley...nothing moves...Help!

Passenger side below the alternator, you can't miss it. Maybe it needs a bit of PB blaster.
