ThingsDemystified: Why was the tensioner replaced? I have a sound coming from that area but I
can't figure out what part is causing it. It sounds like a bad bearing. I
was suspecting the alternator until I saw your video. Is there a way to
find out which component has the bad bearing? I have a 2005 Camry with the
ThingsDemystified: What brand makes the OEM tensioner? What brand belt should I get? Thanks
for the video!
datchulo1085: Would jacking up the engine go access that long bolt apply to a scion tc as
yusuihang: Was the engine jacked up a couple of inches just to provide clearance so
that the bolt from the tensioner can be pulled out? And was the dog bone
mount removed just so you could jack the engine up? Thanks.
Олег Ключко: Thank you! Very clear and understandable.
Edwin Ascencio: do this process is the same for a camry 2007 LE 4cyl ? thank you
Eric Zarycki: Thanks! Great vid. I need a longer wrench for the top bolt but should be
done in the AM. Greetings from Lexington.
Edwin Ascencio: if you do this on a camry 2007 and up you will need to take the right side
motor mount off, if not the engine is gonna vine and you will start lifting
the whole car up by the oil pan which is not a good idea lol.

Scott Hanrahan: Hey I did this last night but I didn't put the wood under the pan til after
I took off the dogbone mount. I was scared about crushing the pan. That
upper bolt was in a bad spot. The car purrs now thanks for the help.
C Beez: That's what I will do. The guys there are usually really cool and helpful,
I think the mechanic may have just been afraid to tell his manager he broke
it or something. He claimed the hydraulic piston that keeps the tension was
stuck and the amount of force he had to put on it caused it to break. He
was very nice about it, but never offered to replace the whole assembly.
Btw, would it be possible to replace the belt with that broke? I already
beat you to the subscribe, it's done! Thanks!!
C Beez: I definitely will. The more I think about it the more ticked I am that he
didn't offer to replace it right then. I really don't know how he got the
belt on, but I do know it took him much longer than it was supposed to
(instead of 30 mins it took him about an hour and a half). Next time I'll
check your videos and if I can do something myself, I will! Btw, Vegas
rules!!! We go there at least once a year, it's awesome. No other city
quite like it in the world for a good time.. Thanks again man!!!
HEAVYGUNZ05: thanx for the vid all i needed to know was how to take off the Belt vid was
C Beez: 88bmyvegas, thanks for posting the helpful video. Unfortunately I just took
my 04 Camry XLE to the shop to let them replace the serp belt and they
accidentally broke off the casted bolt looking thing (which is at the top
of the tensioner @ 4:22). They got the new belt on and acted like it was no
big deal. They said the tensioner would still work fine, but after leaving
I started getting suspicious about it. Do you know what that bolt head is
for? Does it help remove the tensioner? Thanks again!
88bmyvegas: Awesome man, that's good you saved money. Welcome anytime!!
88bmyvegas: always welcome. Vegas Baby Vegas!!
TCMYOU: That was awesome! Thank you!
88bmyvegas: welcome and please subscribe
88bmyvegas: go back to that shop and have them replace it. they broke it, so they
should have replaced it at no cost. things break on a car at anytime. if
that shop had any integrity, then they should have replaced it. Bet you
would not go to them after they make this right. It's their fault and they
need to make it right, if not...then spread the bad word about the shop.
Karma happens. Good Luck and Welcome. Please subscribe
88bmyvegas: I don't know how they put on the new belt since the tech broke the casted
bolt. so maybe they can only do it when you need something else replaced,
like the alternator. but it's better to have it replaced now. they must
have pryed on something and use leverage to get the belt out. by doing
that, something else can break. just have them replace it before it becomes
a bigger problem in the future. thank you
C Beez: Oh.. I see now at 0:45 that is what you are using to help push the
tensioner down with to release the belt, correct? Do you know if that bolt
head is broke off, will I be able to replace the belt again without having
to replace the entire tensioner? I realize now this could be more serious
than I was led to believe. Again thanks so much for any help!
