Hi Lets, If you look carefully at the same adjusting rod you should see a locking bolt at right angle to it on the bracket. Loosen that first and I believe the adjustment will work. Regards John

That should be right if it is an idler pulley. On belts that do not have idler pulley you will have to loosen lock bolt on adjuster. Like alternator

SOURCE: Changing ac compressor belt

This should be a serpentine belt that is held in place with a spring loaded belt tensioner. There shold be a label under the hood showing the correct belt orientation. You need to have a long open end wrench or box wrench tentioner forward, addition tention to it to allow the belt to be slipped over one or the other pullys, once this is done, the belt should be tight. If it is over all the pullys and still loose, you either have the wrong belt or the tensioner is bad.

Yes, when you go and get youre replacement belt, just make sure you get the belt for your engine that does NOT include the AC. It will not hurt anything by doing this. The only problem that may arise is when installing the new belt, make sure you install it the correct way.

Drive Belts

INSPECTION

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Check the condition and tension of all drive belts every 12,000 miles, or at least once a year. Loose drive belts can lead to poor engine cooling and diminished alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, or emission air pump output. A belt that is too tight places a strain on the bearings in the driven component.

Fig. Fig. 5: Installing too wide a belt can result in serious belt wear and/or breakage
Replace any drive belt that is glazed, worn, cracked, or stretched to the point where correct adjustment tension is impossible. If two belts are used to drive a component, always replace both belts when replacement is necessary. After installing a new belt, run the engine for ten minutes, shut OFF the engine and recheck the belt tension. Readjust if necessary.

Two popular methods of checking drive belt adjustment are; the Belt Tension Gauge Method and the Belt Deflection Method. The former requires a special gauge and the latter requires a straight edge and scale or just a good eye for measurement. The deflection method will be used in the following belt replacement instructions. A rule of thumb for checking belt tension by the deflection method is to determine the midpoint between two pulleys of the drive belt and press down at that point with moderate thumb pressure. The belt should deflect to the measurement indicated in the following installation procedures. Adjustment is necessary if the belt is either too loose or too tight.

WARNING A belt adjustment which is either too loose or too tight will eventually damage the accessory that belt is driving. A too loose adjustment allows free-play in the belt which could transfer a whipping motion or shock to the accessory drive pulley. Similarly, a belt which is too tight will preload the accessory bearings, leading to early failure.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

I NEED A DIAGRAM ON HOW TO INSTALL A NEW ALTERNATOR BELT ON A 1982 TOYOTA CELICA GT WITH A/C.


Hi, it appears there are other belts in front of the alternator belt. In this case, the other belts have to come off first. There are adjusting mechanisms on each the air pump, compressor, and alternator to loosen and tighten the belts. The power steering belt is adjusted by sliding the idler pulley. Please follow the instructions below and let me know if you have any questions.

Alternator

To adjust the tension of the alternator drive belt on all models, loosen the pivot and mounting bolts on the alternator. Using a wooden hammer handle, a broomstick or your hand, move the alternator one way or the other until the proper tension is achieved.

WARNING Do not use a screwdriver or any other metal device (such as a prybar) as a lever.
Tighten the mounting bolts securely. If a new belt has been installed, recheck the tension after about 200 miles (480 km) of driving.

Air Conditioning Compressor

A/C compressor belt tension can be adjusted by turning the tension adjusting bolt which is located on the compressor tensioner bracket. Turn the bolt clockwise to tighten the belt and counterclockwise to loosen it.

Air Pump

See Figures 12
To adjust the tension of the air pump drive belt, loosen the adjusting lever bolt and the pivot bolt. Move the pump in or out until the desired tension is felt.
The tension should be checked between the air pump and the crankshaft pulley on cars without air conditioning. On cars with A/C, the tension should be checked between the A/C compressor and the crankshaft pulley.

I'm trying to change the belts for my 92 tercel but some how cant find the tension pulley. Can anyone please help me. I need to change both belts.


It appears that your car is equipped with multiple v-belts, rather than a serpentine belt so there most likely aren't tensioner pullies. Here is some general info that may help.

Alternator To adjust the tension of the alternator drive belt on older models, loosen the pivot and mounting bolts on the alternator. Using a wooden hammer handle, or a broomstick as a prying device, move the alternator one way or the other until the proper tension is achieved. Do not use a screwdriver or any other metal device such as a pry bar, as a lever. Newer models use a tension adjusting bolt. Loosen the pivot bolt and the locking bolt, then turn the tension adjusting bolt until proper tension is achieved. Tighten the bolts securely, run the engine about minute, stop the engine then recheck the belt tension. Air Conditioning Compressor A/C compressor (always use caution when working near the A/C compressor to avoid damaging the refrigerant lines) belt tension can be adjusted by turning the tension adjusting bolt which is located on the compressor tensioner bracket. Turn the bolt clockwise to tighten the belt and counterclockwise to loosen it. Air Pump To adjust the tension of the air pump drive belt, loosen the adjusting lever bolt and the pivot bolt. Move the pump in or out until the desired tension is reached. NOTE: The tension should be checked between the air pump and the crankshaft pulley on cars without air conditioning. On cars with A/C the tension should be checked between the compressor and the crankshaft pulley. Power Steering Pump Tension on the power steering belt is adjusted by means of an idler pulley (some models may use just a lower adjusting bracket setup, similar to the alternator adjustment service procedure). Loosen the lock bolt and turn the adjusting bolt on the idler pulley until the desired tension is felt, then tighten the lock bolt.

Looking for a belt tensioner for a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country. Where would I look? Perhaps I am not calling it by its correct name as no one can even guess what I am looking for...Thanks!


Do you mean the tensioner pulley?

Then, I would look for something with a 1/2" square hole in a pivoting spring loaded pulley that is designed to put 'tension' on the serpentine belt.

Depending on the engine, it can be located in various positions.

How to change alternator belt


914d651.gif
alternator and air conditioning compressor
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the idler pulley bolt.


The replacement of the inner belt on multi-belted engines may require the removal of the outer belts.
To replace a drive belt, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts of the component which the belt is driving. Move the component inward to relieve the tension on the drive belt.
Slip the belt off the component pulley and match the new belt with the old belt for length and width. The old belt will be slightly longer. After a new belt is installed correctly, adjust the tension.
  1. Turn the adjustment bolt at the top of the idler pulley bracket. Clockwise rotation will tighten the belt; counterclockwise will loosen it.
  2. Keep the idler pulley bolt snug (but not tight) while adjusting belt tension. The adjustment bolt should turn with moderate force.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.


Reconnect the negative battery cable.

When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.

I wanna to change the timing belt on a 1997 toyota tercel what are the first steps


first thing is go and buy a haynes repair book from the parts store. they cost around 25.00 or so. they are not that bad to change. with that being said. first unhook the battery, and all your belts off the pullies. then take the valve cover off (on some models) and the hard part will be getting the balancer off unless you have a aircompressor. and then around 10 bolts for the plactis cover for the belt. and you will see the belt the is a idler pully and a ten. pully you need to locate the screw for the ten pully and loosen it up so you can slide the belt off. and while you are that far into it. go ahead and replace the water pump that rides on the timing belt.

I am trying to replace the belts on my 93 Toyota Tercel and I am unable to remove the tension on the air pump/airconditioning so that I could replace the belt.


To remove the belt on the alternator side, loosen the the 14 mm nut and bolt that pivots the alternator and loosen the the 12 mm bolt that allows you to slide the alternator loose. The other belt that connects the power steering and the air condition compressor is a little trickier. You must loosen the the 14 mm nut that pivots the power steering but do not remove the nut completely. There are two other nuts, one 13 mm that can be reached below the vehicle looking upward that must be loosen. This creates the tension needed to release the belt. The last 14mm nut is located on a plate afixed to the side of the engine that is slotted. A special swivel type 14mm wrench is needed becuase there is not much room to work with. Once this is loose you will be able to loosen the belt to be able to take the belt off. If you can not take off this nut, your only recourse is to pry off the old belt with a screw driven and place the new belt in by hand by using the pulleys and rotate the belt manually on. This takes patience ans muscle. Once the belts are in place nmake sure to tighten the nuts and bolts to attain between 1/4" to 3/8" deflection arounf the center of the belts between the pulleys.
