Default 2004 Kia Sedona Serpentine Belt

I am wondering if someone could help me with the changing of the alternator belt. I have had the right tire off, and the wheel cover but I dont think that gives me access to the correct tension pulley.

Thanks a bunch.

Default Belt replacement

The tensioner pully (at the center of the engine) must be loosened at the middle with a 14mm socket. Then underneath there is another 14mm bolt that is the actual loosener. It is a long bolt, but will eventually loosen it enough to get the old on off. Draw a diagram of how the new one goes back on. Mine is an 03, but should be the same. Email me if any problems.

In case someone is searching and finds this, I just changed the belts on our 2004 Sedona. Here are a couple pictures to show what needs to be done.

First, the outer belt:

Then the inner belt. You basically just loosen the two bolts and slide the pulley sideways till the belt clears:

The biggest pain is removing the stupid round "screw" plugs. Why they didn't just use more bolts or machine screws I don't know.

I tried to view you pictures and somehow was not able to as they show only a red x. I was wondering if you could email them to me to see if I can view them.

Default Slight correction

I wanted to add one additional piece of information about the power steering belt adjustment mechanism. In the picture below, A is the pivot bolt, B is the jack screw lock nut, and C is the jack screw.

To change the power steering belt, slightly loosen the pivot bolt A and the lock nut B, then turn the jack screw counterclockwise until the belt is loose enough to remove. Install the new belt, then tighten the jack screw until the belt is taught. Then retighten the lock nut and the pivot bolt.
