Kia Rondo EX: rondo van replace belt

This answer was rated:

rondo van replace belt
Hello, are you wanting information on the timing belt or accessory drive belt?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I want to replace belt take off and replace it

Hi,

There are 2 belts - there is belt you see on the pulleys called the serpentine belt or drive belt. It goes around the alternator, power steering pump and ac compressor pulleys. And then there is the timing belt that is behind the timing cover that goes around the cam shaft, crank and water pump sprockets.

Which of those do you want to replace?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


serpentine belt is the one I'm look at

Hi,

Ok, use either a breaker bar and socket, or long wrench, and place on the bolt in the center of the belt tensioner pulley(C) and turn/rotate counterclockwise to relieve tension on the belt and slip belt off a pulley to remove

To install the new belt, route it around all the pulleys except the very top one. Use your wrench and rotate the tensioner counterclockwise and slip belt over top pulley and release tension on tensioner
