Default Belts 2011 Camry 4cyl

I have a 2011 camry SE 4cyl with 90K miles. thinking I should replace the serpentine belt. two issues and frankly I'm confused.

a. I can't locate the 19MM nut for belt tensioner. Viewed camry forum you tube video - but I can't locate same tensioner on my car. My tenisoner looks more line a 2012 model. Can't locate engine code. Mfg date was 12/10.

If I follow instructions for the 2012 model year I would have to take off the other belt.

b. Should I replace the other belt as well?

And if someone could provide a link to belt diagram it would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help.

Is the PS belt inside or outside of the other belt?

Both years have the built-in nut to allow using a tool.

If possible post photo of your tensioner.

Default pic of serp belt attached.



camry 2011 serp belt


Serp belt appears to be behind PS belt. But when I view instructions and videos of replacing the serp belt none mention removing the PS belt. What am I missing?

Thanks very much for the help.

To remove the serp belt requires removing any belt in front of it, in this case the PS belt.

The 2011 and 2012 tensioners are slightly different but both have a "nut." The nut on the serp belt tensioner is in view in the photo.

The PS tensioner will also have a nut.

Since both belts will be off its a easy enough to replace the PS belt at this time.

Take photos of the area prior to disassemble to allow reference upon reassemble.
