How do I locate the tensioner for the alternator belt on a 2003 kia spectra?

I wondered the same thing and looked for days on end. To my surprise, there is no tension pulley for the 2003 Kia Spectra. The Kia 4 cyl has two (2) belts. The outside belt services the power steering and air conditioning. The inside belt (the one you want to service) services the alternator and water pump. The alternator tension is set by two (2) adjustment screws located on the alternator. One screw is used as a locking bolt and the upper bolt is used as the adjuster. You must first loosen the locking bolt which is located between the belt and the alternator housing. Loosen about 6 to 8 travels of the wrench (size 13mm), then tighten the upper bolt until you have no more than 1/2 inch of movement in the belt when you press down. After the correct tension is achieved, tighten the locking bolt and your done. As long as you're down there, you might as well check the outer belt as well. Same principle, one locking and one adjuster. Good Luck, Fred

I have a 78 mgb the head lights, turn signals, gas gage, and rpm gage, don't work. We have checked wiring and fuses but can't find anything. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Ignition switch? Battery?: Voltage correct? Battery size and type correct? (Other owners\' restore screw-ups? Kids?) Fuses correct amperage?: Power surge? Items themselves ruined/burned out? Stripped or exposed wiring--intermittent? Water vs. electrical. Dirt/contamination? Fuse box and connectors? Horn work? Starts, of course? Alternator? Alternator cables? Belt? (Hummm: Alternator--often a fine bet for small car trouble--big car, truck, or powerful car alternators, V8 or V6/6 cyl. always prove better. Small car/cheap car alternator? Old MG alternator--time to replace/re-coil? Dirty alternator? Your alternator proves worthy of crucifixion?!) Keep pluggin\'--it\'s gotta be something!: An interesting exercise in logic for Mr. Spock?!

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.

I have a 1999 3,8L ford mustang my tester indecates the alt is overcharging,but the batt light is coming on but it goes off! is there anything i can do to besides replace the alt?

Your alternator-mounted voltage regulator has failed. Luckily, your voltage regulator is
replaceable separately from the alternator (most voltage regulators are integral to the alternator,
and cannot be separately serviced).

Note: this works for 3.8L cobra alternators/voltage regulators only - in the 4.6L model, the
voltage regulator is an integral component of the alternator.

1999 Ford Mustang Cobra -3.8L engine

3.8L Engines

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Remove 4 Torx® head screws holding the voltage regulator to the alternator rear housing. Remove the regulator, with the brush and terminal holder attached.

Fig. 1. The regulator and brush/terminal holder are mounted on the backside of the alternator


Fig. 2. The regulator and brush/terminal holder are secured by 4 Torx® head machine screws


Fig. 3. Hold the regulator while removing the screws to prevent the regulator from dropping out and damaging the brushes


3. Hold the regulator in one hand and pry off the cap covering the A terminal screw head with a small prybar.

4. Remove 2 Torx® head screws retaining the regulator to the brush holder. Separate the regulator from the brush holder.

Fig. 4. Slide the regulator out-the brushes will move out of the holder


Fig. 5. The brush and terminal holder can be separated from the regulator once it is removed from the alternator


To install:

1. Install the brush holder on the regulator with 2 retaining screws. Tighten the screws to 25-35 inch lbs. (2.8-4.0 Nm).

2. Install the cap on the head of the A terminal screw.

3. Depress the brushes into the holder and hold the brushes in position by inserting a standard size paper clip, or equivalent tool, through both the location hole in the regulator and through the holes in the brushes.

Fig. 6. When installing the regulator, press the brushes back into the housing


Fig. 7. Use a thin piece of soft material, like this plastic wire tie, to hold the brushes in position while replacing the regulator, or use a paper clip inserted in the hole


4. Install the regulator/brush holder assembly and remove the paper clip. Install the attaching screws and tighten to 20-30 inch lbs. (2.3-3.4 Nm).

5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Belt seems too short,already loosened alternator as much as possi

there is a bolt attached to the idler arm, if you get the right size socket and a good wrench, you have to pull the idler arm. it will pull the entire tensioner and the belt will be loose

Tighten alternator belt

There should be a square slot in the middle of the tensioner pulley arm. It is the perfect size for the end of a regular size socket wrench. Slip the end into the slot and you should be able to move the tensioner pulley just by twisting the wrench around to give it more slack. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help. Goodluck.

Ideals rough but drives great where is the map sensor

The map sensor is located just below the alternator on top of the motor. It's easily removed. I just changed one on my intrigue. Their are no screws to remove, it just clips on. It is square in shape and the size of approx., a nickle.

can you email me more details like a motor size so i can help you further

Large battery

No, not unless the alternator is very small and you have a large battery that is well down in charge. The ideal alternator to battery size is 25%. This means that if the battery is 100 amp hour in size it should have at least a 25amp alternator. The problem only really arises in an RV or boat where a large house battery bank has been installed but the alternator size has not been addressed to cope. The damage done would be caused by an alternator working too hard and over heating.
