U-96 is an unknown quantity at this point
1. Go to your local Autozone, loan from them this: Serpentine Belt Tool
2. There is a square hole in the belt tensioner arm, specifically for that instrument. Insert it there.
3. By pressing on the tool's lever, rotate the tensioner, release the belt.
4. Assemble in reverse order.

i was under the hood as well looking things over, checking fluids and the belt, i didnt see a sticker for the routing of the serpentene belt, thought that was odd. i was looking in the maintenance manual and there is a diagram in the maintenance section for the 2.7 and the 3.5 for the belt routing.

Hey Guys,, ok, No problem getting the belt off my 2.7,, but being as my tensioner has 155Kilometres on it,, I need to know if the pully is removable and is the bearing regreasable without haveing to buy a whole new assembly,, and theres allso an idler pulley there,, is
that regreasable,, just wondering, as ive done it before on other cars? Or can just new bearings be put in?? Just didnt want to commit to taking it apart without haveing new parts handy if this is not fixable?

2.7 belt is a cake walk





but being as my tensioner has 155Kilometres on it,, I need to know if the pulley is removable
The pulley can be removed, but it is not a seperate service part


and is the bearing regreasable without haveing to buy a whole new assembly,,
I think the bearing on the tension arm has a single row ball bearing, have not looked at 1 in while to know.. there is no ready lube point


and theres allso an idler pulley there,, is that regreasable,,
Pretty sure on the idler pulley you can carefully "pop" the shield out (dont bend/mangle it), and use a dab of good quality grease (I prefer MOBIL-1 synthetic) and pack some into the ball/race area, then re-install shield to the races.. being full of grease will make slight difficult to put shield back, as it'll displace some of the lube to fit back in. Should be able to do same for the tension arm pulley, you'll have to look at it.

Or can just new bearings be put in??
Better off buying new parts, I know we keep the idler on hand, not sure about the tensior assembly.. FYI, same part number available at Hyundai and Kia, both use same engine in model line up

Just didnt want to commit to taking it apart without having new parts handy if this is not fixable?
Broke ? Sounds as if you was changing belt as a routine maintnance thing.. though it best to just do timing belt and drive belt at same time, gots to put a belt back on when going together, so just use new belt


Thanks in advance Awg
If it bother you, just get new parts and do it all at once going back together..

Hey Thanks a bunch, sbr711, that was quick, ok will update my profile! Yes, I did the timing chain and the serpentine at about 98k,, bout 4 yrs ago, so its probably still ok for a
few more miles, Im more concerned about dried out bearings at this point? 9yrs old?
Just did one on a VW VR6,, 1997 at 16yrs,, and it was gettin pretty dry, grease hard?
Sure wish other car makers would put provision for tension removal with a bolt,, like that one is,, great idea? Anyway , think I'll rip'er apart an see? I'll post my findings and if this is fixable on both pulleys or not??
Thanks again, Awg7
