This is during my water pump/fan belt replacement. I tried to do everything as it was previously, but it seems like something doesn’t look right. There’s a ring on each tensioner bolt, and I couldn’t figure out whether that ring goes on the outside or the inside of the tensioner bracket. I’ve taken pictures and circled the referred part.
Only thing is, I’m missing a ring on the water pump tensioner bolt, but I have one on the alternator. I don’t want anything to break by having the bolt sitting on the bracket like that.
I added a picture of what happened to my water pump belt. So far after 600 miles, I haven’t heard any squeals from the new belts, but just wondering how do I know if it’s too tight or not?
