Question about 1996 Plymouth Neon
My car isn't a 1996 plymouth neon but it is a 1995 plymouth neon and the altenator belt broke. I have 2 different replacement belts, the reason for that is because I'm not sure what is the right one. I went to Auto Zone and they gave me the belt that goes to my car but I could've swore that the last time I bought that same belt it was to big so I got a belt that's one size smaller. My problem is, is that I don't know how to install the belt.
If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.
I had to put my 95 on ramps to make it easier to see. You have to loosen top adjustment nut, then in behind alternator is a bolt that goes through a plate that you have to turn clockwise, to tighten. I found it easier to see form under on ramps. You may have to loosen lower pivot bolt slightly too.

First off. it should be the smaller belt it only go to the alt and the crankshaft,its the v belt not the ribed belt. take passenger side tire off and the plastic splash sheild to gain acess to the alt belt and from the top of the engine bay loosen the power steering pump bolts located to the left of the psp pulley 2 bolts one on top an one beneth the belt take that belt off .slid the alt belt on the the crankshaft put the psp belt back on tightin the bolts just snug and take an 1/2 inch braeker bar and put it in the back side of the square hole and pul up on the breaker bar so your turnin it towards the engineand completly tighten the top bolt to the power steering then tighten the lower bolt and then go over to the alt and lossen the 2 bolts top and botom .put belt on and tighten the bolts back up just snug .and if belt doesnt fix (too short)dont worry simply lossen the adjmnt bolt on the back of the brackect left of the top bolt of the alt and that should be that.
