View Full Version : 2002 ltr can't get belt on!

I am trying to replace my serp belt. It got the same part number as the old one from the dealer but I just cannot get it back on. I pull the tensioner all the way and am trying to get it back over the alternator, but just can't get it. Is there some trick I'm missing, or I'm starting to wonder if the belt is just the wrong size from the factory??

Did you take the water pump bracket loose and put the belt behind it. . Do you have it routed correctly?

Did you change your alternator. maybe it has a different sizr pully

I ended up having to take out the alternator bolt to swing the alternator in to get the belt past the pulley shoulder. Seems strange, but that was the only way I could get it on.
