Tightening the alternator and the power steering belts on a Mazda is not too hard, but if you need to tighten them, you probably need to replace them too.
I recommend you go to an auto parts store and buy a third party repair manual for the 200 Mazda Protege.  ~$15.00.
It covers changing/tightening belts pretty well.
Good Luck!

How to replace an alternato belt on a 2000 pontic grand am is it the sameas most others ? loosen the pullys and put belt on and tighten back up leaving the belt a little loose?


There should be a automatic tesnioner IF you are talking about a Pontiac? the belt should never be "loose". no pullies to loosen. A 95 Protege, yes you have to loosen and tighten the alternator, the adj bolts are tough to get at.

Where's the belt tensioner for a Mazda Protege 2000? I have a squeak when I turn on the heater. Fan belt needs tightening I'm guessing.


If it's the same as my sister's 2002, there are two belts. The tensioner for the outer belt is on the front, under the power steering pump or ac compressor(cant remember which is on the front there). Loosen the one that locks it in place, and the pivot point bolt on top, then the long one can be turned to adjust tension. All 3 of those bolts are 14mm heads. For the inner belt, it's a pain. It is in the rear, under the alternator. 12 mm for that tensioner and lock out bolt.

Timing belt on 1996 mazda protege slips during startup


Hello, this to me sounds like your fan belt slipping (not timing belt). To adjust the fan belt you need to undo your bolt on the alternator, pull it tight onto the fan belt and while holding it tight do the bolt back up tightly. this will stop yoour fan belt from slipping. I hope this helps.

Replacing 2 belts on a 2000 Mazda Protege


I recommend that you go to any Auto Parts store and by a repair user manual for your 2000 Mazda Protege.  They have pictures and arrows and stuff that you will need to do the whole job.  The non-Mazda version will cost approximately $15.00.
Because of the tensioner that may come off when while you are doing these belt changes, it is too complicated to talk you through this.
But with the manual, I am confident you can change them.
