Condition check, adjustment of effort of a tension and replacement of driving belts


Driving belts play important role in functioning of the engine and many other systems of the car. Eventually belts wear out and should look round regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car in order to avoid the serious engine failures which correction of consequences can cost a pretty penny to the owner of the car.

The quantity used on concrete model of the car of driving belts depends on a vehicle complete set auxiliary units. Belts are used for a drive of the generator, steering and water pumps, and also the compressor of the conditioner of air. Depending on character of an arrangement of pulleys by one belt more than one unit can be put in action.


1a. Muffle the engine, open a cowl and find driving belts. Highlighting itself a small lamp, fingers feel belts on all their length, checking on existence of cracks and stratifications. Presence on a belt of attritions, zapolirovanny sites to shine and other obvious defects (address to accompanying illustrations) is inadmissible also.
1b. Examine belts from both parties for what overwind them. Defective belts are subject to replacement without fail.
1c. Check a condition of edges on the bottom party of belts, they should have identical depth in the absence of deformation signs.
2. The assessment of effort of a tension of a belt can be made by a nazhimaniye way on it a thumb on a site in the middle between two next pulleys. Pressing should be rather firm. In parameter, harakteriziruyushchy the effort of a tension of a belt, is size of its deflection at a nazhimaniye (address to an accompanying illustration). As a rule, if pulleys defend from each other at distance from 180 to 280 mm, the size of a deflection should make 6.4 mm, to distance between pulleys in 305-405 mm there corresponds a deflection in 12.5 mm – for a wedge-shaped belt, and 6.4 mm – for multicostal.

Specialists of the Toyota company measure a belt tension by a special dynamometer (address to an accompanying yullyustratsiya).

At dealers in departments of trade in spare parts and tools it is possible to get testers dynamometers of Nippondenso and Borroughs firms. The tester fastens on a short shoulder of a driving belt and at a tension from a scale of a dynamometer the indication is read out. This way is the most exact.


Diesel engines


1. As a rule, correction of effort of a tension of a belt (easing/strengthening) is carried out by shift in the relevant party of the hinged auxiliary unit given by a belt.
2. Usually it is the share of each of driving belts used on the engine on one component which fixture is carried out by means of axial/lock and adjusting bolts. The axial/lock bolt is released, then rotates in the relevant party adjusting (address to an accompanying illustration).
3. For weakening of effort of a tension of a belt the component should be displaced towards the engine and on the contrary. Having finished adjustment, track reliability of a tightening of bolts.

If the automatic natyazhitel of a driving belt is established, manual adjustment is not required. However, to be convinced of the correct work of a natyazhitel, the tension of a belt can be checked as follows.


1. Be convinced that by pressing a belt with effort about 98 N the natyazhitel moves down (address to an accompanying illustration).
2. Check combination of labels of a pulley of a natyazhitel to be convinced that the belt does not slip on it. If it is necessary, replace a natyazhitel.
3. Be convinced that the label in the form of an arrow is in the scale zone "And" (address to an accompanying illustration). If the label is out of the zone "And", the belt demands replacement. At installation of a new belt the label should be in the zone "In".


Diesel engines


1. For replacement weaken effort of a tension of a belt (see above) and throw off it from the pulleys. It will be reasonable to make replacement of all belts at the same time in view of approximately identical speed of their wear. On the majority of models from below to a cowl the label with the scheme of laying of driving belts (address to an accompanying illustration) is pasted.
2. Upon purchase of new belts take with itself old as samples – replaceable belts should correspond strictly removed from the car on a standard size. Track correctness of landing of belts on pulleys.
3. On termination of replacement adjust a tension of new belts (see above).

Engines 2UZ-FE


1. To remove a driving belt on this engine, having seized by a bolt of a natyazhitel a head with a vorotok or a graggers, turn a natyazhitel counter-clockwise to remove a tension, then remove a belt (address to an accompanying illustration). The bolt of a pulley of a natyazhitel has the left carving.
2. Establishing a belt, track that all its wedges were laid in streams of pulleys and that the belt did not come off a flute in the bottom of a pulley.
