Default Re: 09 pt cruiser serpentine belt slips off ps pully very time I put it on

Take a look at the alignment of the belt with respect to the pulley and the harmonic balancer (crankshaft pulley) and the p/s pump pulley. The belt should be captured between the walls of the crankshaft pulley and the p/s pump pulley (and A/C pump pulley if you have A/C) and is only riding along on the idler pulley which should be self-centering.

JoeX is correct, you use a wrench on the pulley center bolt to pull the idler pulley up, slide the belt under it, then release the pulley so that it puts tension on the belt.



This isn't a great shot, but look between 0:12 and 0:20 to see it running
