Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Accessory Drive Belt Adjust

Accessory drive belt is equipped with automatic belt tension adjuster, no manual adjustment is required.

Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual includes a section dedicated to the Accessory Drive Belt Adjust procedure, an essential maintenance task for ensuring proper engine performance and belt longevity. This procedure typically involves inspecting, adjusting, and replacing the accessory drive belt, also known as the serpentine belt, which drives various engine components such as the alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor.

To begin the Accessory Drive Belt Adjust procedure, the manual advises first disconnecting the negative terminal of the vehicle's battery to prevent accidental electrical shocks. Next, the manual instructs technicians to visually inspect the condition of the accessory drive belt for signs of wear, cracks, fraying, or glazing. Any visible damage or excessive wear indicates the need for belt replacement.

After inspecting the belt, the manual guides technicians to check the belt tension using a belt tension gauge or by applying pressure to the belt to ensure it has the correct amount of tension. Proper belt tension is crucial for preventing slippage, noise, and premature wear of the belt and engine components.

If the belt tension is not within the specified range, the manual provides step-by-step instructions for adjusting the tension. This typically involves loosening the tensioner pulley, adjusting the position of the tensioner, and then tightening the tensioner to achieve the correct belt tension. The manual specifies the correct tension measurement and adjustment procedure for each Captiva model and engine variant.

Additionally, the manual may include information on belt routing diagrams, which illustrate the correct path for the accessory drive belt around various pulleys and components. Following the correct routing ensures that the belt operates smoothly and efficiently, reducing the risk of belt slippage or misalignment.

By following the Accessory Drive Belt Adjust procedure outlined in the manual, technicians can ensure optimal engine performance, belt longevity, and overall vehicle reliability for Chevrolet Captiva owners.
