My accessory belt came off today. I have installed the replacement twice and it keeps coming off. I am fairly confident about the size.

It seems that the belt does not properly line up on the belt idler pulley. What am i doing wrong? The belt lines up properly everywhere else.

The belt backs off at the idler pulley. It seems like the generator pulley the idler pulley and power steering pump pulley are not in line.

Any idea what might cause this?

when you change the belt are you keeping the old tensioner or changing it? if you kept the old one on maybe it needs to be changed to keep the proper tension on the belt...

is it possible i could just clean it off with some PB blaster and recover some of the tension?

Any chance there could be another issue?
