In reading your issue, it seems that your alternator has locked up and may need to be replaced. I would recommend taking the belt off and then trying to spin the alternator pulley as well as all of the other pulley's that the belt runs on (if applicable). If it is the alternator then it is an easy fix and you can pick one up at your local auto parts store. Make sure that you disconnect the battery before you start working on the alternator as the connections will have an electrical current from the battery. I would recommend that you replace that belt as well.

Belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt replacement?


The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

All the adjustments are made at the alternator.You need to loosen the top and bottom bolt and if has an adjuster behind the alternators top bolt then that needs to be backed off as well.Slide the alternator towards the block{may need to loosen the alternator bracket bolt at the head].Remove the belt and put on the new one .Adjust the belt until ther is about a 1/2" of play in it and test run,if it squeals after start up tighten it some more until the sqealing stops.

How to install power steering belt on 97 geo prizm


Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.
