First buy the belt. Then to take the old one off you will most likely need a 3/4 in drive ratchet. There should be an automatic belt tensioner that your will need to loosen by sticking that ratchet in the tensionor and turning it counter clockwise. It will take a little umph to get it, then take off the now loosened belt. to install that also what you need to do.

What are reasons why alternator belt keeps snapping for a 1999 mitsubishi mirage?


Bad alternator bearing is one possibility. Remove belt and spin everything it drives to find binding part. Other possible is poor alignment of driven parts.

How to Install a new Alternator Belt on a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage?


First take off the negative battery cable, facing the back of the car reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt. If you need to change the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . Then you can use the adjuster belt to move the pulley to adjust the belt.

I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 car. What steps I am suppose to do.


First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

( BEFORE ADJUSTING THE ALTERNATOR BELT DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE OR YOU MIGHT BLOW AN EXPENSIVE HIDDEN FUSE)to change the alternator belt, you have to loosen the lower mount bolt on the alternator, loosen block shaped bolt that the long adjuster bolt goes through, and loosen the belt by turning the long adjuster bolt, take off the belt. to adjust the power steering belt, there is a long adjuster bolt that moves a tensioner pulley, first you have to loosen the nut that holds the pulley in place , now the pulley can be moved with the adjuster bolt.

I need to replace the alternator belt on a 2000 mitsubishi mirage i would like a diagram please


If you have limited / no mechanical knowledge leave this to an Auto Technician.

This a relatively easy job.

Undo the alterantor lock nut (12mm ring spanner / socket wrench)
Undo the alternator adjustment bolt almost fully (Either 10mm / 12mm wrench)

Get under the car and loosen the main alterantor bolt using a 14mm wrench. Just loosen enough to move alternator, it is not to be removed.

Pull alterantor forward to slacken belt / remove belt.

Replacement is the opp of the above.

Ensure the MAX. deflection at the middle of the belt is only 12mm (1/2") after all redfitting is done.

Failure to have it this tight will wear it out very quickly!!
