My 1994 Sedan Seville needs an alternator how do I change it


The alternator in your car is one of the easiest fixes you can do. First, remove the NEGATIVE (-) battery cable.
You must relieve the tension on the serpentine belt by loostening the retaining bolt, then remove the wiring harness plug from the back of the alternator, then remove the two retaining bolts from the alternator. Reverse the procedure to install the new alternator, making sure that belt tension is adequate. Replace the netgative battery cable last, and test.
If the serpentine belt is loose, replace the belt.

How do I relieve tenstion on 2005 Sebring belt tensioner?


Find the appropriate socket for the bolt along the tensioner pulley and attach it to the 3/8-inch ratchet handle. Place the socket head over the bolt on the tensioner pulley and push it in the direction indicated on the configuration chart on the hood of the vehicle to loosen the tension on the serpentine belt. Take the flat-head screwdriver to remove the serpentine belt from the tensioner pulley.

How to releived the tension on the belts when removing the the alternator on A 1995 jeep wrangler


Serpentine Belt:

If there is a tensioner with a spring, then put a 1/2" breaker bar on it and rotate the tensioner to relieve tension.

Conventional V-Belt:

Loosen the nut and bolts for the alternator to swing it in a way that relieves tension on the belt.

May have to relieve tension on other belts in similar way to change the belt in question.
