This answer was rated:

im replacing the sempertine belt, of an acura mdx 2004 got the belt from the dealer, but it seems a little short/ it seems like a lot a tension is required diagram is correct, what else can i do?

It is possible that it was either manufactured incorrectly or boxed wrong.

Measure the belt. It should be 84". If not the length, then it is the incorrect belt.

what if is the same size?



They can be a bit tight going on. I find the easiest way to install them is to route the belt around all the pulleys, including the tensioner, except the power steering pulley. I hold the belt tight with one hand and with other I rotate the tensioner and then route belt around the power steering pulley
