Question about 2002 Isuzu Rodeo
I am trying to remove the 2 belts in front of my alternator on my 97 Isuzu Rodeo. I am unable to loosen the tension on the 2 belts in front of the alternator. How do I do this? Also is there a site to watch a video on how to do this?
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.

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.
