ok so i have an issue in regards to the power steering belt. every time the engine revs above 3000 rpm the belt itself turns itself inside out. does anyone have a solution i am willing to pray to the car gods atm. i have replaced the tensioner pully has a good balencer on it and have swapped out the pwr steer pump. i am at my witts end here.

i have not measured it but seems good just eyeballing it it has been fine for a long time. but it snapped a belt which was ancient btw and i replaced it and it has eaten 5 belts just by flipping them upside down there not over or undertight either.

are we talking serpentine belt set up or 3 belt V belt

if its the 3 belt set up , it usually is the harmonic balancer spinning a little wonky causing them to flick of , but also mine does it but i have fixed it i changed the top power steering belt idler pulley

bolt on bolt of , holding the tensioner is 3 bolts 10MM ones remove them and the tensioner comes straight of ?

wait what do you mean regarding the serpentine set up changing , yes it is bolt on bolt of

Did you do this set up ? did you fix all the clearances regarding the AC pump etc ?

sorry man

it has a good balancer and new idler pulley changed pumps and had the same problem so am now thinking of changing to a serpentine setup any docos on it or is it all just bolt on

ahhh i heard the word serpentine and thought it was


Ok back on topic WE NEED to get to the bottom of this

as mine also does the same ive tightened the belt dozens of times its tight as anything i feel for the bearings new belt also , new pulley and she just keeps skipping of at high rpm above 4.5K

also the belt looks to be twisted when it comes of as in "permanently" in twist in it

I really cbf going serpentine belt set up but i might get odds and ends slowly for it but why should i need to :( and also why should OP need to this is unfair on us
