Hi everyone,
I want to replace my 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0l FWD serpentine belt. I Have searched for more than 3 hours and cannot find anything on how to replace it.
Could anyone give some ideas on how to replace it?
Any video or photo on how to replace it will help heaps.
Thank you so much.

Firstly, get pen and paper and make a diagram of belt routing around the pulleys, or look for diagram on google.

Then, Use a 16mm spanner to move the automatic tensioner back. When it is back all the way insert a 5mm drill into the hole to lock it. then remove the spanner and remove the belt. Fit new belt, then use spanner to realease tensioner and remove drill

Hi mate, really appreciate your comments. Give me much better idea on how to do it.
when I move the auto tensioner, which way is easier to do? From the top of the motor or from the bottom near front right wheel.

also which direction should I move the tensioner, clockwise or Anti clockwise?

i might need a very long wrench to move it, right?
thanks for your help.

I always do it from on top. No advantage to doing from underside.

A longer 16mm spanner is easier. Put spanner on tensioner nut at about 2 o'clock and lift up to around 11 o'clock.

Then if you look with a small mirror you will see some steps on the part that moves. When in correct position this will line up with a hole on the bit that doesnt move. The drill or pin goes in here to hold it untensioned. Google pics of 4b11 tensioner.


then its simple to move belt off.

Hi Mate,

Really appreciate your detailed explanations. I would like to buy you a beer if we are in the same city. haha....
I have attached my engine diagram. I hope I am labelling them correctly. The little hole will show up when moving Tensioner up, right? Then I can use a 5mm pin to black the tensioner to remove the belt. Thanks again.

You are correct on all points.

Sometimes getting the belt on can be fiddly, Start with crank and waterpump, get them on and pull belt tight, then loop around AC, them alternator then tensioner

Hi Mate:

I have tried a few different 16mm spanner to hold on the nut. It is very difficult to reach the nut fully. I am not sure which type of Spanner you used?Thanks again.
