Default 06 Vue Redline


What type of bolt holds the serpentine belt tensioner on the motor ,,it feels like a 6mm allen,but theres a little play and i don't want to strip it out,,its a 2006 Vue Redline with the Honda 3.5 v6,,,it may be a torx head,but of coarse i cant see it

I believe this is the part you are talking about:

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/saturn/...tine-tensioner

picture doesn't look like an allen head but that doesn't mean it's not.

I pointed you to this to get the part number of the tensioner in the hopes you might be able to narrow it down from there. I highly doubt GM would furnish it separately from the rest of the tensioner assembly UNLESS the exact same bolt is used somewhere else in the car as a standalone part.

Let us know if you track down the answer.

Actually, go post your question at saturnforum.com; there is someone there I BELIEVE has FSM docs for the 3.5 Honda V6

You might want to try a bolt extractor of appropriate size and probably a breaker bar first. May need to be a low profile one -- dunno.

The other thing you can do is hammer in the next biggest allen wrench and "make it" into the next larger size. Highly non optimal, and bolt material may be too hard for this to work, and if that's the case, you're effectively hammering on the bolt threads in the block
