remove and to reinstall your serpentine belt on this 2002 Toyota Tundra with a 4.7 liter
V8, same as most Toyota and Lexus V8s in these vehicles. The tools you’ll need are 10 mm and 14 mm
wrenches and a Phillips screw driver. Using a 10 mm wrench, disconnect your negative
batter cable. Okay, here’s out belt routing diagram, always
very useful. If you don’t have one of these before you
take the care part, make sure you take good pictures or draw yourself a diagram beforehand. Okay, use a Phillip screw driver to loosen
the clamp from the intake tube to the air filter box, as well as there is an electrical
connection on top of the air filter box that you need to disconnect and then use your screw
driver to loosen the clamp for the throttle body side and then pull that tube up and out
of the way. Okay. Little disclaimer here, I used footage from
a different project to make up this video. On this vehicle, you can see that the radiator
and fan trout are moved, it likes there’s a whole ton of room. If you’re looking at this view on your vehicle,
this is basically kind of from the passenger side of the engine at the front looking down. You can see that silver tube, there’ll be
a hose coming off of that and then the whole area view will be a little more crowded by
your radiator and fan trout. Like I said I used some different footage
to make this up, but you should be able to see the basic steps to get your belt off and
back on. Okay. Now the 14 mm socket in a ratchet handle or
bar. You want to turn your tensioner counter clockwise. Okay, and just a quick note, you can use a
14 mm wrench. In this shop I’m coming at that bolt from
the right side with a ratchet and socket. If you come from the left side with a 14 mm
wrench, you should have plenty of room and you should have also plenty of leverage. Move the tension to the belt, pull the belt
off, the tensioner slowly come back. Take the belt off a couple of things. Okay. Okay. Now we’re just going to route the belt like
the diagram tells us which is basically put a loop down or on the crank shift, up and
around the water pump, around the AC compressor, across over the idler pulley. Actually, you leave it off the idler pulley
at first, over around the power steering pump alternator and up towards the tensioner. Okay. Now sure how well you can see. Belt routed on everything except basically
the tensioner and the islet pulley, so I’m going to take the tensioner, put it down,
get the belt correcting on the tensioner and then pull the tension away down and pull the
belt up onto the islet pulley. Okay, let the tension off. Check, make sure, looks like everything’s
routed correctly. Okay. We’re kind of speed through putting the air
duct back on, make sure it’s on the throttle body correctly and make sure it’s on the air
box correctly, tighten the clamps, check the hose that goes to the valve cover and behind. Make sure that your electrical connection
to the air box is all set. And last but not least, reconnect your battery. We hope this helps you out. Brought to you by www.1AAuto.com your source

    Just changed my belt on a 2006 Tundra. Great video. Saved me $75. Not sure air intake is necessary to take off, but sure makes the view easier.

  3. Mario Crisanto says:

    Do you guys sell original Toyota parts like this belt?

  4. ffwemtiv says:

    Again, same dealer wanted $230 to replace this belt, and I did it for $30. Thanks for making this look as easy as it is to do.

    Good video. I liked the skinned knuckles!

    Put this off for several months because I couldn't figure out which was the tension pulley. Thanks to your vid I got it done in a jiffy. Thanks a lot!

  9. Mark Rea says:

    Just about like you said. a lot harder with the fan and hoses in the way. NOTE: the belt does not go around the fan, it goes over it. 14mm rachet much more accessable on the It side than Rt. Thanks again. I am not that mechanical and it took me 30 min.

    I know this is an old video, but changing the belt on my 4th gen 4runner and I'd been putting it off because I couldn't get enough leverage on the pulley and never had someone to help. After watching this, I removed the air intake, put the wrench on the tensioner, then crawled underneath and was able to easily get full travel on the pulley. Took about 30 seconds after that. Thank you very much!

  11. bullitt773 says:

    Thanks! Is this much different for an '04 Tundra, and how difficult to also replace the tensioner?

  12. MVA .Reinarz says:

    Great videos you guys post. Well explained. I'm up in Canada and not even a customer! Would be if I lived closer… I use your knowledge for my 2001 Volvo, 2002 Toyota Tundra and 2006 Mercedes CLK 350.
    Greetings from the North.

    Thank you! great video. I leaned to replace my 2005 Toyota Sequoia radiator and serpentine belt from you guys. I replaced the serpentine belt on my sequoia without taken any parts off. I used a serpentine tool kit. It took me 15 minutes to replace.

  14. TheRPPyeayouknowme says:

    Thanks for the great video. I just followed your directions to replace the drive belt on my '06 Sequoia that has the same/similar engine with the same belt routing. In real life, it's a lot more cramped in there with the fan and the various hoses, but I was able to do it in about 20 minutes. Sucker fired right up and no more squeaking!

  15. 027joe says:

    thank you i did it today no problems thanks to your instruction

  16. Ryan Utz says:

    Thanks A1! Replaced my SB in my 2000 tundra. Works like a champ again.

  17. jimmy Molinaro says:

    Sure, this video makes it look like a piece of cake when you're not dealing with the fan shroud and upper hose! You should ALWAYS try to show what really needs to be done instead of taking shortcuts and not showing skipped procedures.
