SOURCE: The pulley on the power steering pump slides back

The bolts on the front of mounting bracket are loose they thread into the pump and hold it tight against the bracket. There is also an adjustment depending on what engine you have there will be a bolt or a stud with a nut on it on the top of the pump bracket this how the belt is adjusted you want about an inch of up and down play in the belt then tighten the bolts there around the pulley looking at it from the front i think there is 3 of them they will be in slots in the bracket so they can slide to remove the belt from the pump.

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.

    The pulley on the power steering pump slides back and forth causing the fan belt to come off. Is ther supposed to be a bolt to hold the pulley tight?


    The bolts on the front of mounting bracket are loose they thread into the pump and hold it tight against the bracket. There is also an adjustment depending on what engine you have there will be a bolt or a stud with a nut on it on the top of the pump bracket this how the belt is adjusted you want about an inch of up and down play in the belt then tighten the bolts there around the pulley looking at it from the front i think there is 3 of them they will be in slots in the bracket so they can slide to remove the belt from the pump.

    Belt routing


    V-BELT ADJUSTMENT CAUTION
    On models equipped with an electric cooling fan, disconnect the negative battery cable or fan motor wiring harness connector before replacing or adjusting drive belts. The fan may come on, under certain circumstances, even though the ignition is OFF. Alternator Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. If the deflection exceeds 1?4 in. (6mm), loosen the alternator mounting and adjusting arm bolts.
    3. On 1968-72 V8 and 6 cylinder models, use a prytool to move the alternator toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. NOTE: Apply tension to the front of the alternator only. Positioning the prytool against the rear end housing will damage the alternator.
    4. On 1973 and later V8 models, place a 1 in. (25.4mm) open-end or equivalent wrench on the adjusting arm bolt and pull on the wrench until the proper tension is achieved.
    5. Holding the alternator in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt. Inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the alternator mounting bolt. Fig. 1: Alternator belt adjustment 86651054.gif
    Power Steering Drive Belt ALL 6-CYLINDER AND 1971-72 V8 MODELS
    1. Holding a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run, test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts on the front face of the steering pump cover plate (hub side).
    3. Using a prytool on the pump hub, move the power steering pump toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. Do not pry against the reservoir as it is relatively soft and easily deformed.
    4. Hold the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and then inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned tighten the mounting bolts.
    1973 AND LATER V8 MODELS
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the three bolts in the three elongated adjusting slots at the power steering pump attaching bracket.
    3. Turn the steering pump drive belt adjusting nut as required until the proper deflection is obtained. Turning the adjusting nut clockwise will increase tension and decrease deflection; counterclockwise will decrease tension and increase deflection.
    4. Without disturbing the pump, tighten the three attaching bolts. Fig. 2: Power steering belt adjustment (slider type) 86651055.gif
    Air Conditioning Compressor Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. If the engine is equipped with an idler pulley, loosen the idler pulley adjusting boot, insert a prytool between the pulley and the engine (or in the idler pulley adjusting slot), and adjust the tension accordingly. If the engine is not equipped with an idler pulley, the alternator must be moved to adjust, as outlined under Alternator Drive Belt.
    3. When the proper tension is reached, tighten the idler pulley adjusting bolt (if so equipped) or the alternator adjusting and mounting bolts. Fig. 3: Air conditioning belt adjustment 86651056.gif
    Thermactor® Air Pump Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting arm bolt slightly. If necessary, also loosen the mounting belt slightly.
    3. Using a prytool, pry against the pump rear cover to move the pump toward or away from the engine as necessary. WARNING
      Do not pry against the pump housing itself, as damage to the housing may result.
    4. Holding the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and recheck the tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the mounting bolt. Fig. 4: Air pump adjustment points 86651057.gif

    Ford 3.9 freestar....I have a belt like squeek around the crankshaft area with the belt removed.What could it be?


    hi
    It is probably caused by the crankshaft pulley! Have it replaced because it will certainly break down within a short period and can cause severe damge to your car.
    inspect it if it is still usable and just need tightening. if not then it could be replaced.
    feel the tension on each belt and adjust it to the right tension.
    all you have to look is a tension er , loosen the nuts that is holding it and increase the tension of the belt by turning the bolt to move the pulley away from the center. but if the pulley is all the way to the back and the belt is still loose, then its time to replace the belt.

    hope u will b helpfull
    regards
