Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Replaced the power steering pump as well as put an INA tensioner on. Still some tensioner movement. Hopefully it's no big deal.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Update

I replaced the bad alternator pulley. Upon test run, tensioner still had noticeable oscillation. It seemed slightly better and less noisy, but still moving.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

The pulley I'm replacing first is the Alternator clutch pulley - from what I can tell that is a splined setup?

Also if I order the power steering pump pulley - any recommended pullers?

EDIT: from what I've read I may be better off just getting a new whole PS pump if I go that route..

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

I've ordered a new alternator pulley. Verified part number for my vehicle/alternator.
Crossing my fingers it will fix it. Will report back after replacement.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

185k miles.

I put a screwdriver in the alternator to hold the shaft and attempted to turn it both ways and it didn't turn either.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Took belt back off:

Should the alternator pulley spin freely in both directions? Any tests I can run on the pulleys to check their functionality?

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Uh oh. Thanks for checking.

I had someone step on the gas a little to bring RPMs up from idle and the movement persisted. So it doesn't appear to be from the idle.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

I will take a look today and observe all the pulleys to check for issues.

Alternator is roughly 1.5 years old.

I've ordered an INA tensioner. Hopefully it holds up.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Pulled belt and checked torque on mount bolts, started again and still happening. It felt like there was sufficient tension on it when I held it when removing/installing belt. What a nightmare of a job this has been.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Noted - if I get a new one I will get INA.

Is this indicative or a faulty tensioner or could there be other issues? Didn't notice any obvious issues on the other pulleys.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

So... after a few days of perfectly fine driving, Today, the dash flickered a couple times while driving. When I got home I popped the hood with car running. Brand new tensioner pulley was moving (not side to side, but back and forth a little). Is this part bad and do I need to get a new one? Is it ...

Re: Uneven brake pad wear

Tapered as in, both pads have more considerably more wear on one end than the other. If you were to look at them lengthwise.

Uneven brake pad wear

While replacing belt and front brake pads, I noticed tapered wear on all front pads. As simple fix as replacing caliper?

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

UPDATE

Went to O'Reilly's, bought their belt, SLIPPED RIGHT ON. Smooth as butter. Never using Autozone again.

Now the question is, is the chipped pulley a no go.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Not all grooves were on.

So you would recommend attaching to the tensioner pulley last? I'm also going to get myself a beefier torx setup so I can hold the tensioner back with more ease.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

The last attempt before it damaged the pulley, it was mostly on the pulley but we were unable to fully seat it. Two sets of hands trying to pry it on were unsuccessful.

Copy that

In your guys' experience, has the belt taken much effort to get on? As it stands, it would require a Herculean effort.

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Looking into diameters now.

I will try that Rick. Just wondering though, is it bad if the belt is put on at the ultimate tightest possible? Shouldn't there be a little slack when the tensioner is fully engaged? If a belt is stretched that tight, is there damage done over time?

Re: Serpentine Belt broke while driving - new belt won't install!

Ok, I will compare the range of motion on the tensioner with belt and without.

As far as the pulley wheel size: the original broke off while driving and is gone so no comparison possible :/

Yes to belts in groove.

First belt was Duralast, wasn't close to fitting.
Second belt was Continental. Close, but not enough.
