Removal Procedure

Notice: Routine inspection of the belt may reveal cracks in the belt ribs. These cracks will not impair the belt performance. The belt should be replaced if the belt slip occurs if a section of the belt ribs are missing. A single serpentine drive belt is used to drive all engine accessories. All belt driven accessories are rigidly mounted with the belt tension maintained by a spring loaded tensioner. The indicator on the movable portion of the tensioner must be within the limits of the marks of the stationary portion of the tensioner. Any reading outside of these limits indicates either a defective belt or tensioner.

1. Remove the cruise control module. Refer to Cruise Control Module Replacement in Cruise Control.
2. Remove the engine mount. Refer to Engine Mount Replacement.
3. Use 3/8 inch breaker bar in order to rotate the drive belt tensioner in a clockwise motion.
4. Remove the drive belt.

Installation Procedure

1. Use a 3/8 in. Breaker bar in order rotate the drive belt tensioner in a clockwise motion.
2. Install the drive belt. Connect the drive belt last to the power steering pulley.
3. Install the engine mount. Refer to Engine Mount Replacement.
4. Install the cruise control module. Refer to Cruise Control Module Replacement in Cruise Control.
