SOURCE: How do you adjust a clutch on a 1998 suzuki

A lot of fluid clutches cannot be adjusted. Any that can be adjusted is with slave cylinder The small round bar from the slave cylinder to the plate from the bell housing which holds the trust bearing. Check it you will easily see the adjuster on it if it has one. If your clutch is'nt badly worn and it cannot be adjusted then try bleeding the slave cylinder it may be air. If it is hard to put into gear and the car moves off when you lift your foot up 2 to 3 inches then it needs adjusting if not then the clutch is worn and adjustment won't help. Cheer's

SOURCE: i need a diagram of a 2004 suzuki forenza

That's easy, there are some pulleys with ridges to grip the underside of the belt, and some are smooth for the top side of the belt.
I can only assume your belt broke and fell off so you couldn't see how it was on prior. But either way you have limited length, and the last place you would be routing the belt is the tensioner, which you should have located first, so you can have a wrench handy to fit it.

Here's what you have:
Top left= alternator (small ridged)
top right = power steering (large ridged)
Bottom right = AC compressor (large ridged)
Bottom middle = Crank Pulley (large ridged)
In middle next to Power steering = Tensioner (small shiny smooth)

Remove the air cleaner housing (two bolts)
Start on left top side and loop belt (clockwise) across the alternator to the power steering down to AC (also clockwise from right to left) then over to crank pulley (from bottom clockwise around to top of pulley) to tensioner (smooth, belt is backwards on it) which will go back up to the alternator.

At the top middle there should be a sensor protruding from the timing cover that the belt passes under as it connects between the alternator and the power steering. And you won't easily be able to fit anything besides a box-end wrench on the tensioner, so you may need some kind of extension on the wrench to get good torque on it without hurting yourself.

How do I replace the serpentine belt


The serpentine belt runs all the external components (A/C compressor, power steering pump, alternator, water pump, and possible others). It has one pulley on it that is either spring-tensioned, or has an adjusting bolt. To replace the belt, you must release the tension of the belt by using a ratchet or belt tool on the tensioner pulley to take pressure off the belt, or loosen the adjusting bolt if that is what you have. The new belt must be routed correctly in order to fit properly and ensure that all driven components rotate the correct way. You are not saying what engine size your Jeep has, but I'm assuming the 4.0L six-cylinder. If that is the case, the belt routing diagram is shown below to assist in proper positioning of the replacement belt. "CS" is the crankshaft pulley.

What steps should I follow when removing the alternator from my 92 Suzuki sidekick?


Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Loosen adjusting bracket nut or bolt and the bottom bolt, then loosen the long adjusting bolt while pushing down on the alternator. Remove the belt.
Unplug wire from top of alternator.
Unbolt the wire from the rear of alternator. Completely remove upper and lower bolt from the alternator. Pry the alt away from the brackets. You may have to use a hammer to tap the spacer back in its hole about 1/4 inch. This is located in the hole where the large bolt went through. Reverse procedure to install.

How do i adjust the tension belt on the alternator


You don't adjust the tension. The tensioner on that serpentine belt is spring loaded and never needs adjustment.
On a 2001 with normal miles (~125k), you should be on your second tensioner pulley and your third serpentine belt by now.

Serpentine belt comes off a lot. how to put on to save money?


Is the serpentine belt broken or cracked? If it can be salvaged, put it back on, then check for the adjustment. There should be an adjustment bolt on the alternator that will tighten it up. Also, never assume that they give you the correct belt at the auto parts store. Check with a dealer. I had the same problem with my Nissan and found out the parts store gave me a belt that was an inch too long, so even when I adjusted it out, it still wouldn't fit properly.

Serpentine belt fell off.


Nothing to do with cracks yaddi yadda. The belt on a 1992 Chrysler 3.3 V6 of almost ant denomination will come off if water gets on it. Drive through a deep puddle and it will fall off. I bought a Serpentine Belt wrench from NAPA and put my own belt back on. I studiously avoid driving through puddles.

AKA :
In my opinion one design defect of the engine compartment is that the underside is completely open and allows water and snow to be thrown up inside and over the engine drive belt. The small splash shield underneath does not divert the water that well. But a new belly pan is not part of the technical service bulletin.

belt-diagram-image.jpg Chrysler's solution is the replacement of the idler pulley and the pulleys retaining bracket. In the TSB I read Chrysler's engineers have decided that on some models the idler pulley is misaligned by .08 inches.
This is why I could not see the misalignment with my naked eye. An updated engine bracket and pulley assembly is available at your local Chrysler parts department.
This job is not highly technical, but is time-consuming. You will have to take a lot of stuff off to gain access to the engine brackets retaining bolts. This may not be a very good do-it-yourself auto repair depending on your skill level.

Cerpintine belt came loose again


The serpentine belt can come off if the self adjuster is not working, or has not been adjusted.

I would buy a new belt, free up the adjuster and fit the new belt to the correct tension.

If it slips again, it may be an alignment problem.
