I Need A Serpentine Belt Routing Diagram. I Can't Locate One Anywh

Recommended Posts

upon trying to install a serpentine belt for a 92 Lexus SC300, i noticed there is a little metal tab on the axis point of the tensioner arm that will only let me flex the tensioner arm to a short degree. i flexed the tensioner arm with ease, but the tensioner arm won't go but so far. i have the correct size tensioner pully and the correct size serpentine belt, but i need about 5 cetimeters of slack to get the serpentine belt wrapped around all the pulleys... has anyone else had this problem??? i'm thinking about using my dremel tool to grind away the tab in hope of getting more flex out of the tensioner pully arm. i also tried to re-adjust the steering pump bracket, but when i loosened the bolts around the steering pump bracket, the steering pump didn't budge the slightest little bit... if anyone knows of a better way to go about dealing with this issue please give me some advice... i think it's shame the way the mechanical features of this car was designed... :angry:

if you read this post and actually had a solution for my problem, never-mind and thank you anyway... i just went ahead and grinded off that tab near the center of the tensioner pulley arm and everything worked out perfect... it gave me more than enough slack to install the serpentine belt and wrap it around all of the pullys... needless to say, the dremel tool and dremel cutting disc didn't waste any time removing the tab... the new serpentine belt gave my altenator a little more boost of energy. this i noticed when i turned on the headlights and turn signals. (what next, lol ???) :lol:
