Yes those are bolts. You remove those from the back side. This takes a while sometimes. If you can't get them by reverse alone, try hitting them with impact in forward for a hit or two to brake it loose a little. If the new hub comes with new bolts, don't be afarid to brake them. PS, after those bolts are removed, don't forget to remove the nut on the axle shaft. You may also need to use an air hammer to help remove old hub after bolts are removed.

Remove the drive belts, then spin each pulley by hand. You should find one that feels wobbly or rough. This is the component that is most likely causing your chirp. Usually it is either the water pump or an idler pulley. DO NOT run the engine with the belts removed- the engine will overheated and severely damaged!

You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

Loosen belt isuzu rode 1993


Depending on which engine and which belt, you may have a tensioner that is spring loaded. It is pushed aside by using a large pry bar or 1/2 inch breaker bar.
The 4 cyl engine uses V belts, so you should have an idler pulley which is adjusted with a bolt. You loosen the bolt in the pulley then turn the adjusting bolt.

Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    How to put on serpentine belt


    Hi,

    The tools required are:
    1/2-inch drive ratchet
    2 - 1/2-inch drive 8-inch extensions
    1/2-inch drive socket set

    Please follow these steps to replace the serpentine belt on your 1999 Chrysler 300M:

    1. Open the hood and prop it in place.

    2. Locate the serpentine belt adjustable idler pulley on the front of the engine. This adjustable idler pulley will be closest to the top of the engine. Position a metric socket onto the ratchet and loosen the bolt in the center of the serpentine belt idler pulley.

    3. Now please loosen the push bolt on the side of the idler pulley. It is a 15mm size and the push bolt on the side of the tensioner is 13mm. Pull off the old belt.

    4. Loosen the tensioner pulley for the AC belt. The same steps need to be followed for this as well.

    5. Next slip the AC belt on the back of the crank pulley and route it as per the diagram under the hood.

    6. Now you need to tighten up the idler pully and the push bolt until the belt play is within factory specifications, then tighten the hub bolt in the center of the pulley as well.

    7. The same thing needs to be done for the serpentine belt as well. Just ensure that you tighten up the bolts and have the specified play in the belt. Check the belt tension by pushing inward on the belt.

    8. Crank the vehicle for about 15-20 seconds. Then turn it off and again check the tension in the belt. Adjust as necessary. You need to have about half an inch of play in the belt.

    If this doesn't work for you or in case you need any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

    I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
    Thank you.

    Serpentine belt snapped 2 days in a row, the belt was burning the other day but today it just snapped and my anti freeze started to come out


    A burning belt usually indicates a seized idler pulley on those gm cars. You will have to find which pulley is seized and change, it before replacing the belt or the new belt will only burn and snap again.
