So I was replacing the belt on daughter's 03 H-6, since the idler pulley seized and ate the belt. There is no diagram to be found on the car and none in the owners manual, or Chilton's or Hayne's. After quite a web search, found www.daycoproducts.com, and after searching the application was directed to a diagram for the H-6. I had difficulty with the install since the new belt needed to be levered and stretched. I have posted another thread on the idler pulley problem.

The serpentine belt on the H6 shouldn't have to be ''levered and stretched''. It seems that you might not have released the tensioner.

In general no serpetine belt is levered on by design...whether its the alternator bracket or an actual ajusting pulling etc.

It's great that you accomplished the work, but for future reference, see the attached.

someone mentioned it doesn't use a serpentine belt. The H6 does. The H4 has the separate traditional belts.

The diagram I posted wasn't so much to show the belt, but how to release the tensioner so that the belt wouldn't have to be ''levered and stretched''.
