I am going to attempt to change the serpentine belt on my 07 sonata 3.3 v6. I was wondering if this is something you can do with regular hand tools, and do not need some type of special tool. I was reading somewhere that you can get at the belt tensioner easier if you take off passenger tire and go thru the hole in frame to get at tensioner. I'm creeping on 60k miles and am getting ready for a long road trip.

What I do not want to happen is to get old belt off...then cant get new one on again. Thanks for any advice.

Piece of cake... Sonata I go through wheel well, remove tire and silly panel..

Look at the tensioner, it has a 19mm hex on the arm, use a swivel 6 point socket on long extension to move the arm and flip the belt off...


Install new belt, turn tension arm, slip belt back on last pulley of choice.

All done

I have a 2006 3.3 and I'm still on my original belt at 102k. Belt is not cracked, no excessive play in it either. Hoses are good too.

That's good to know. I've wondered how long serpentine belts would last.

CONTINUED from post #2 above --

This was Santa Fe yesterday, but Sonata is same 3.3, just you will be slight tigher getting at the tensioner.. Just use a long handle ratchet for leverage though to turn the assembly..

I guess some of you are very lucky.. My wife's Sonata (3.3 V6) is starting to make some ticking noise from the serpentine belt area at 63K miles.

Those pictures were very useful.

My Sonata 3.3 was making some interesting sounds too, it has 70K miles on it and the idler pulley needed to be replaced. After that it's been dead silent. It was a very easy change, no need to take it to a shop unless your in a hurry. Thanks again Sbr for the help!

Was it like a whirring sound? almost like a supercharger?
