Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Randall,. Have you done anything yet? or just asking how to relieve belt tension
Ok, sounds like bad alternator. have you done anything to try to remove the belt?
Ok, did not understand per your post/question as to what stage you were at, did not want to repeat something.To loossen the belt? you have to feed a wrench to the tensioner pulley bolt. Honestly? I can No remember all and the exact size, of the bolt head, I think 15mm may be wrong, You put wrench on and rock clockwise and hold it to loosen belt. Sorry can not remember bolt size witout looking,. I out a link to the repair. Fit a wrench that fits, pivot to the right, it is spring loaded, will NOT do harm, hold it there and slip the belt off. See the link I included
I was going to say 15 mm as most common, work on so many different makes models, Cant remember each and every , Soory for that, if 14 mm?> do as I sent, it will work to get belt off
HUM, YOU CAN NOT GET WRENCH BACK ON TO TURN BACK TO LEFT TO HOLD AND SLIP BELT BACK ON? YOU CANT REMOVE A PULLEY AND AT SAME TIME PUT BELT ON. HAVE TO USE A WRENCH OR SOCKET TO GET TENSIONER BACK TO THE LEFT. MAKE SENSE?
no problem you should be just fine. maybe this link will help as well
