Look for the belt tensioner it is normally a smooth roller holding tension on the belt get a 3/8 socket and make sure you get the right socket and use this to pulll the tensioner down and the diagram for the belt is normally under the hood somewhere and if it isn't you can either draw you a diagram how the belt came off or go to auto zone and they will print you out a diagram

Replace the alternator in a 2007 jeep compass limited


First..,Get new part and also a new belt if belt has never been changed..Make sure part is correct,Use safety glasses..Be sure engine is cold..,Notice sticker under hood that shows belt routing diagram..If there isn't a sticker you can hand draw your own..Disconnect battery ground cable..Remove serpentine belt..If you have never replaced a serpentine belt it will get you confused but it is VERY EASY..It should have a diagram of how it is removed on the sticker showing the belt..The salesman at the parts store can show you easier than I can tell you..After removing belt ..,inspect all pulleys for tightness or any type of wobble..Look for any small shines of metal fragments around pulleys..Spin pulleys to make sure they don't have a worn bearing noise and they spin freely......If one seems damaged now is the time to replace it...remove wiring from alternator carefully..Remove alternator mounting bolts..Use a small pry bar or large flat screwdriver to pry the alternator carefully at both sides upward to remove it..It has a small bushing inside of the lower mounting holes which slides in and out to help keep alternator in position.The old alternator is to be turned in to parts store for a core credit so try not to damage it....Lube mounting holes of new alternator so it will slide into place smoothly..Install bolts and get them all hand tight then snug each bolt lightly until they are all seated then torque each bolt..Torque tight but DONT OVER TIGHTEN..It should be no more than 40lbs.torque..carefully connect alternator wiring..Install new belt..Doublecheck everything..,remove all tools from under hood..Coonect battery and start engine for safety check...

2005 Chevy Express 1500 8 cylinder: How can I find an accurate diagram for removing the fan shroud and replacing the serpentine belt?


There should be two bolts at the bottom and two at the top of the shroud to remove it. There should also be a diagram of the serpentine belt located somewhere under the hood or by the hood latch.

How do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


Hello there,
To replace the alternator in your car:
Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
All the best. Elect_Comp
