    I am trying to change the belts (3) on a 1997 isuzu rodeo. I have been only able to remove the power steering belt. I have not been able to loosen the a/c belt or the alternator belt. 
    I loosened the alternator but was not able to get the alternator to move. With the a/c belt I tried to loosen the pulley to get the belt off and was not able to get any slack in the belt. There are lock nots on the back of the pulley but I am unable to get to them.
    Any ideas?

You need to loosen the alternator so the belts become slack. Look for bolts on top and bottom that attach the alternator to a bracket or the engine block. Loosen them and the alternator will move. Since the belts hook to other accessories, you may need to loosen them too. To get them back and the proper tension, you'll need a large screwdriver or pry bar to put tension on them as you tighten the bolts. I suggest you get a Haynes guide for this model that will have photos showing how this is done.

Alternator belt diagram for isuzu bighorn


All above is Bull Sxxxt. Isuzu bighorn Alternator belt only drives water pump (fan) and alternator. Size of belt is 17x1000 and its a tight fit onto pulleys so it makes you think its wrong belt, but trust me its not. As if you get 17x1025 or 17x1050 belt you wont get it tight correctly due to not enough adustment on alternator. To change/adjust the belt very simple. Loosen 3 bolts (14mm socket) on power steering pump (its 2 belts that diving power steering and air con), loosen tensioner on p/s pump. Remove those 2 belt - to get access to alternator belt adjustment bolts. There are 2 bolts you will need to loosen One at the bottom of alternator (14mm socket and 25mm extension bar to get it easier) another one is 12mm on tensioner rail. Than adjust tension by screwing 12mm long bolt that mounted across the tensioner rail until you get tension correct. Correct tension is about 68kg. But i do it just to get it nicely tight without too much of sag. REMEMBER DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the belt as you will crush berings on water pump or alternator.

HOW TO INSTALL ALTERNATOR BELT DIAGRAM


ALTERNATOR/WATER PUMP DRIVE BELT(courtesy of autozone)

On most of the 1981-88 model year engines covered in this information, the alternator/water pump drive belt is tensioned by a screw type tensioner, which makes precise tension adjustment easy.

  1. On 1981-87 models, loosen the locknut, located on the locking screw or lockbolt-located in a slotted portion of the outboard alternator mounting bracket.
  2. On 1988 models, loosen the T-bolt, located in the center of the disc shaped portion of the outboard alternator bracket.
  3. Tighten or loosen the drive belt tensioning bolt. This bolt is tightened to increase belt tension and loosened to decrease it.
  4. When the belt tension is correct, tighten the lockbolt.

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.

HOW TO REPLACE A POWERSTEERING BELT ON A 1997 ISUZU RODEO


If it is like a 94, the power steering belt is either middle or front, You might be able to sneak it past the fan, not sure, usually you have to take the fan off, Not the four bolts up front but the 3 bolts into the block holding the bracket. take the fan shroud out,2 srews/ bolts, and clips, getting the top radiator hose out of the way helps. Loosen the tension nut up front, and I believe you have a square hole for a half inch drive breaker bar, use it to move the pump left and right to loosen and tighten the belt. Then tighten the nut back up, put every back, you are all set. If the belt is in the middle, you have to take off the ac belt first. Loosen the tensioner on this belt, and wind it down, Then back up when you are done. Hope this helps.
