I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    How do u change a serpentine belt for a 1999 ford escort zx2


    ADJUSTMENT 1.8L Engines ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT
    1. Loosen the alternator adjusting bolt.
    2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt. NOTE: Do not pry against the stator frame. Position the prybar against a stronger point, such as the area around a case bolt. Fig. 1: A belt tension gauge should be placed on the longest span of the belt to check tension — 1.8L engine 90981g05.gif

    4. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
    5. Adjust the tension to 86–103 lbs. (383–461 N) for a new belt or 68–86 lbs. (304–383 kg) for a used belt.
    6. If a belt tension gauge is not available, adjust the tension to 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm) deflection for a new belt or 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm) deflection for a used belt.
    7. Tighten the alternator adjusting bolt to 14–19 ft. lbs. (19–25 Nm).
    8. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
    9. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 2: Alternator and water pump pulley belt routing — 1.8L engine 90981g06.gif
    POWER STEERING PUMP BELT
    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    2. Loosen the power steering pump mounting bolt and nuts.
    3. Adjust the power steering pump and, if equipped, the air conditioning compressor belt tension by turning the pump adjusting bolt. Fig. 3: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models without A/C 90981g07.gif

    4. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut near the pump adjusting bolt.
    5. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
    6. Adjust the tension to 110–132 lbs. (491–589 N) for a new belt or 95–110 lbs. (422–491 N) for a used belt.
    7. Check for proper belt deflection. For a new belt (one with less than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm). For a used belt (one with more than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm).
    8. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut, located near the adjusting bolt, to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
    9. Tighten the pump mounting bolt behind the pulley to 27–40 ft. lbs. (36–54 Nm), and the remaining pump mounting nut to 23–34 ft. lbs. (31–46 Nm).
    10. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 4: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models with A/C 90981g08.gif
    1.9L Engines The accessory drive belt for 1.9L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. Fig. 5: Drive belt routing — 1.9L engines 86751052.gif
    2.0L Engines The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced. Fig. 6: Drive belt routing — 2.0L SOHC engine with A/C 90981g23.gif
