Look under the alt. from the front, you will see 2 - 10mm bolt heads. One holds the bracket for that assy. The other bolt is used to tighten or loosen the alt. to replace the belt.

How to tighten alternator belt on 1993 pathfinder


Four cylinder engine - loosen bottom pivot bolt on alternator, then loosen top bolt and pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten belt. When at proper tension, tighten top bolt to hold tension and tighten bottom pivot bolt.
Six cylinder engine - loosen the lock bolt at the bottom of the alternator, then use the adjustment bolt (perpendicular to the lock bolt) to tighten the belt tension. Once properly tensioned, tighten the lock bolt.

I am trying to change my 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage (w/ ac) alternator belt. I loosened the tensioner, took out the top - bottom and inside bolt of the ac compressor to take off the first belt and even took...


BEFORE ADJUSTING THE ALTERNATOR BELT DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE OR YOU MIGHT BLOW AN EXPENSIVE HIDDEN FUSE.
I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
To take off the alternator belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the automobile , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley (right side of pump mount), the nut holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley nut loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.

I have a 2000 geo metro that the fan belt squeals when its cold-do I have to change the water pump when I change the belt?


As long as the squeal is from the belt and the pump is not leaking, I don't see any reason to change the water pump. If it is the main drive belt and not the A/C belt, you use the alternator for belt tension. You don't have to remove the screws, you only need to loosen them enough to allow the alternator to move. If I remember correctly, There are 2 bolts. 1 on a track which allows it to move in and out and the other more or less acts like the hinge. The A/C belt (if you have A/C) has its own tensioner which is easier to get to under the car. 2 screws, 1 locks it, the other is the adjustment. I am going by memory so if I'm not quite right that is why. I hope this helps.
