1 - A/C COMPRESSOR OR IDLER PULLEY
2 - FAN DRIVE PULLEY
3 - POWER STEERING PUMP
4 - CRANKSHAFT PULLEY
5 - IDLER ASSEMBLY
6 - TENSIONER ASSEMBLY
7 - ACCESSORY DRIVE BELT
8 - GENERATOR
9 - IDLER PULLEY

NOTE: When installing accessory drive belt onto pulleys, make sure that belt is properly routed and all V-grooves make proper contact with pulleys.

  1. Position the drive belt over all pulleys except for the water pump pulley.
  2. Rotate tensioner clockwise and slip the belt over the water pump pulley.
  3. Gently release tensioner.
  4. Install the air intake tube between intake manifold and air filter assembly.
