2009-2013 Corolla 2Zr-Fe Serpentine Accessory Belt Replacement Guide

I just got around to changing the serpentine or "accessory" belt on my 2010 Corolla S with the 2ZR-FE 1.8L I4 engine a bit early at 50,000 miles. I took pictures of the process and made a DIY tutorial to help out other 10th generation owners.

I hope you guys find it to be useful. It seems like there wasn't a really clear guide online for this procedure on the 2ZR-FE engine.


I never thought you would need to loosen anything.

It looks like they went back to the old method of belt tension. They must have had too many problems with the spring and hydraulic tensioners.
