Accessory Belt Routing
Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.
Removal & Installation

- Rotate the auto tensioner clockwise to release tension, then remove the drive belt.
- Install drive belt (A). Route the belt over the components in the following order: Crankshaft pulley - A/C pulley - idler pulley - generator pulley - water pump pulley - P/S pump pulley - tensioner pulley.
- Rotate auto tensioner arm in the counter-clockwise moving auto tensioner pulley bolt with wrench.
After putting belt on auto tensioner pulley, release the auto tensioner pulley slowly.
