All Chevrolet Colorado for sale Tools required:

  • 3/8 ratchet

Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Insert the 3/8 ratchet (square end) into the square opening on the belt tensioner.

NOTE: You may need a larger pipe for leverage if the tensioner is a bit rusted or tight.

Step 3: Turn the tensioner CLOCKWISE to loosen the tensioner, reducing tension on the belt, and allowing for its removal.

Step 4: You can now remove the serpentine belt from the vehicle.

Step 5: Using the diagram provided (usually located on the air box), loop the belt as shown. Be sure that the belt is looped around the proper pulleys!

Step 6: Using the 3/8 ratchet, turn the belt tensioner COUNTER-CLOCKWISE to tighten the belt around the pulleys.

NOTE: The belt should be taut, but not overly tight. There should be about a 1/4 inch of "play" when pushing down on the belt.
