    Thread: Serpentine belt diagram

    1. 08-08-2012 07:11 PM #1
      My apologies if this belongs in another section or the answer is located else where. My serpentine belt broke on the way home today and I'm having trouble finding a diagram online. I've never done this before, so something with directions would be much appreciated.

      Also does the cc only have one belt on the passenger side? Does it have an aux v-belt?

      Thanks

      Did you find a diagram for this? My belt started making a god awful squeal when i'm idling.. Probably needs to be replaced. I found the belt locally for 20 bucks and want to do the job myself. Any suggestions?

      For some reason the above diagram does just not look ok for me. Maybe this PDF will help, page 23.

      Ya the diagram I posted is the "typical" diagram of the belt on most VWs. It was just a guide. Great job though nice PDF.

      I know this post is old, so I almost doubt anyone will see this reply, but in the diagram, what is the contraption at the front at the bottom? My serpentine belt broke on Friday and when my boyfriend was poking around the engine, he found that that wheel was off-kilter and did not move at all. We got my car towed to the shop because he doesn't know what that is or how to fix it, and now I'm curious. What is that contraption? He says it is connected to the air conditioning?

      I just got quoted $215 to do the belt. I find that kind of crazy that a $20 belt would cost so much to install. It was the dealer though

      That is crazy. I'm pretty sure you can do it from above with a 17mm wrench in about 30 seconds.

      Just to be super helpful, here is how.

      There are four pulleys it goes over. Three of them have grooves (the top one, alternator, bottom front is ax compressor, bottom back is the harmonic balancer on your crankshaft).

      The fourth pulley is smooth, and that's your tensioner. It has a 17mm bolt in it. Put the wrench on the bolt, turn *clockwise*. The tensioner will rotate upwards, releasing tension on the belt. Pop the belt off the alternator (top) while holding the tensioner with the wrench. Release the tensioner (slowly) and unthread the belt from the other pulleys. Work the new belt along the same route, pull on the tensioner again with your wrench to allow you to slip the belt over the last pulley, and you are done.

      Not a ton of room in there at the bottom, but still should be doable. Grooves side of the belt on grooved pulleys, smooth side on the smooth pulley.

      Edit: just ran out to my car to check. Way more room that I remembered, super easy to reach in.

      I'll help out as well. Look at this pulley DIY

      Do step 1,2,7 and 8. Put a new belt on and do steps in reverse

      http://www.neuspeed.com/media/attach...9_62.10.92.pdf

      You can do it from the top as well but have less room
