Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
There are two belts on this model 2.4 engine
Give me a min let me get you images of the drive belt configuration, and what you need to do and what I do to change the belts..
give me a couple mins please
Study that image and let me know if you have any questions
The one on top with the alternator. After I crack the 12 mm nut loose ( blue arrow ) I then loosen the adjuster ( Red Arrow) then what I normally do is as the bolt comes out, I will leave the socket and extension on it, and tap it with a hammer so it goes in and loosens the belt
its the upper idler pulley
The one between the power steering pump and the Alternator?
Are you replacing that?
That is not a belt adjuster.. That is simply a idler pulley..
Well to replace that you need to remove the front engine mount and jack up the engine..
I like to take it out with the bracket, cause this way I know for sure the back part of the pulley is seated properly. It has to sit in the notch.
Unless you can hold the back of the pulley bolt and slip on the new tensioner..
But I remove the whole thing to make sure it's on correctly.
But you need a block of wood and a jack to stick under the oil pan. Then you need to remove that engine mount on the passenger side, and jack the engine up to slip that out properly.
what about a/c lines
I think I just take one 10 mm out that secures the line by the strut tower...
I don't remove any lines, I just remove some of the support bolts so the lines can move a little
how high do you jack the engine
One you see the body of the car move, that is about it..
alright Jay thanks for your help
