Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a serpentine belt on this 2004 Chrysler Sebring with the 2.7-liter V6 engine and the only tools you need are jack and jack stands, 13 millimeter and 19 millimeter sockets and a ratchet, and a 1/2 inch ratchet.

If you don't have the benefit of air tools, then you'll want to loosen the lug nuts with the vehicle on the ground and a way you can secure the vehicle, remove the lug nuts, wheel, and tire.

With the wheel off, you can see the entire serpentine belt. You just want to loosen up this bolt at the top of your tensioner. We'll just fast forward as Don does this. Now, you want to just loosen this, the lower bolt here on the tensioner. As he loosens it, you'll see that the tensioner kind of goes slack. Now you can pull your serpentine belt off the pulleys.

As a reference point, we're just going to give you a belt diagram. It's from the front of the vehicle and it is for the 6-cylinder. You can just reference it on how to put the belt back onto the pulleys. You can also see pretty clearly in this shot how the belt goes back on. The only thing you can't see is the alternator, but you would want the ribbed side going over that. Using your 1/2 inch ratchet, you just want to pull that tensioner down and then tighten those bolts up. We'll fast forward as Don tightens those the rest of the way. We'll continue to fast forward as Don replaces the wheel. You want to replace your lug nuts while it's still jacked up. Lower the vehicle and tighten them the rest of the way. Then, you want to use your torque wrench and torque them to 100 foot-pounds.
