One more question ....

Thanks for supplying the diagram. Since I'm a newbie to this kinda thing ...

1. Can you point out where the tensioner might be?
2. How do I go about releasing the tension?
3. I've seen on the web where I can buy some tensioner release tool, is this really necessary?

Do I need to do anything else - like remove the right front wheel and wheel liner?

Thanks for the help!

OK guys .. having just completed the serpentine belt replacement on my 2007 Hyundai Entourage .. i figured I'd share my "HOW TO". Once again, I realize that there are incredibly talented mechanics out there -- I'm just not one of them. As a result, I write stuff for those of us who were never lucky enough to have autoshop.

Here's goes ...
1. remove the "idiot cover" a.k.a .. that big plastic cover with the Hyundai logo blocking your access to the engine. Use a 10MM socket wrench and you'll have it off in no time.
2. Grab a 19MM socket, because we're going to press on the nut of the tensioner relief.
3. So here's a photo of the left side of the engine with the idiot cover removed. See my new belt?


4. Now we need to get our socket wrench on the right nut. There's a lot of nuts in there, but only one we want. I've placed my Craftsman socket wrench (it belonged to my grandfather and has been used for well over 30+ years).


5. Push the handle counter-clockwise (towards the firewall) and just press and hold. You'll feel the tension release right away.

6. Now, the fun part, putting your belt back on. For those that forget that you probably need to A. take a picture of what your old belt looks like or B. get a copy of a belt diagram - I've included my badly hand sketched but accurate belt diagram.


Total time .. 30 minutes. Let me know if this helps any of you!
