Here is the instructions on how to replace the serpentine belt with a diagrams below.

REMOVAL
REMOVE FRONT WHEEL RH
REMOVE ENGINE UNDER COVER RH
REMOVE FRONT FENDER APRON SEAL RH
REMOVE V-RIBBED BELT
Using SST and 19 mm socket wrench, loosen the V-ribbed belt tensioner arm clockwise, then remove the V-ribbed belt.
SST 09216-42010
NOTE:Be sure to connect SST and the tools so that they are in line during use.
When retracting the tensioner, turn it clockwise slowly for 3 seconds or more. Do not apply force rapidly.
After the tensioner is fully retracted, do not apply force any more than necessary.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Don't know how good the picture will show up. It kind of reminds me of an hour glass.

Inspect them every 6 months for cracks, excessive wear, otherwise they are OK.

Changing alternator belt. Found matrix on how to place belt around pulleys. Not able to get belt around alternator pulley (last pulley needed to finish.) Tried to move car into garage for the night but now cannot move gears into neutral to push car. They are locked. What can I do?

You can either use the manual option to disengage the gear shift interlock system to enable you to shift to neutral.

Reinstall the battery, if it had been disconnected, and turn ignition switch on and depress the brake pedal to disengage the interlock system.

If battery is not disconnected and turning the ignition switch on while depressing the brake pedal does not allow you to disengage the interlock, check for a blown fuse.

I have a 2004 Toyota Camry LE. Recently I went to get my tires rotated and balanced and asked the service center to change my Serpentine Belt while they were doing it. The technician started to work with the belt and could not get the other one off. There is a bolt on the housing that has a very unique head. They did not have a tool in the whole shop that would fit this bolt.
Can a tool be purchased that will fit this head? If not, is there an adapter that can be purchased to make an existing tool work?
I just find it hard to beleive that the dealership is the ONLY place I can get my belt changed. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Take it to another shop, clearly this shop does not have appropriate tools. The tensioner uses a 19mm head, so any 19mm wrench or shallow socket will do.

The bolt, or screw in question does not have a standard or metric head. It is an odd shaped head that I have never seen before. See the attached photo. I hope you can see it.

Is the new alt a direct fit part? Is everything tight and the belt routed properly? Have you checked to make sure the belt tensioner is good and keeping the belt tight?

Hi mikelac,

The Automatic Belt Tensioner Pulley arm has a hex head where you can turn to release the tension and remove the belt.
