removal of sepentine belt 2009 s60

Post by volvomadness » Mon Dec 23, 2019 4:45 pm

Trying to removal the serpentine belt of 2009 s60. I have done these on 2005 and lower but not on a 2009. Don't see where to put the tool in for the tensioner, Is there a plastic cover on the tensioner?

If so how do it get the cover off

Thanks Madness

It can be either torx hole or the hex nut on the bearing. I've had both types of tensioners.

If there's a black plastic cover, put against its side a long flat screw driver then give it a small smack with your fist (I've simply used a long piece of pipe), it should jump off & no need to put it back. If you're going for the hex bolt, you need a ratchet slim enough to fit by the car frame. For the tension, you'll need a long handle, an extendable ratchet is the best - also toss the power steering reservoir - if you also lift the coolant reservoir, undo first the electrical connector underneath or it may damage the level sensor
