I also would like to know with pics if possible. I have a 4cyl. Thanks.
Nothing to really pic... just make a drawing of the belt routing, then do you main work from the wheel well.. Move the spring loaded adjuster and flip the belt off, start then new belt around the P/S pulley, I use couple zip-strip to secure belt to P/S pulley and finish up from there.. after belt on, cut the zip strips.
V6, work from wheel well, I use a 19mm wobble socket on long extension, use it to turn thr spring loaded adjuster, flip belt off, install new belt.. I place new belt over water pump pulley, then stuff a rag in the gap to hold the belt in place while fiddling with rest of belt.
The first 3 pics is of the 2.4L,, the next 2 is for the V6 -
Thank you for the pics. Please help to post a pic of the spring loaded adjuster as I do not know what it is and also please let me know hot to move it like you said... 2007 4-cyl Sonata.
FYI the harmonic balancer (crank pulley) requires a special tool to keep the crankshaft from turning when you try to remove the bolt that holds it on. I made my own, but it took some time. Not really all that easy compared to changing the belt.
So when you said working from the wheel well - does this mean I need to remove the tire and wheel well cover? or I can work from the top? Thanks.Look at previous post above... first pic in row 1... see the long wrench.. rotate to unload pressure off belt. The wrench is on the tensioner, rotate and unload pressure, flip belt off.
Well, I am not anywhere close by to help, but just look at the belt, grab it somewhere and push/pull it and watch for tensioner pulley/arm to move.. put a long wrench on the bolt head for this pulley and move it to be able to flip the belt off.. route new belt and rotate tensioner to allow new belt to flip onto last pulleyHey my man, I have a 2011 2.4. How do I change mine? This is the 1st time I am attempting to do this. I believe I can do it, can you help me?
