SOURCE: tension pulley for the Serpetine belt

The tensioner is the 3 1/2" pulley located between power steering pump and alternator down about 5" on front of engine. Does it have air conditioning?
If you need the diagram please post your email address and I will email it to you as I do not know how to post pictures on this.

SOURCE: need to change alternator but dont know where

Ok, the easy way to find the belt tensioner is:
Find the two pulleys that are made out of plastic or nylon. Grab the belt and pull (or use a large screwdriver, or something like that for leverage). Watch to see which pulley moves side to side, not rotating; it'll be one of two smaller pulleys in the middle of everything. When you find this, then you can put a socket and ratchet on the bolt in the middle of the pulley, and turn to get it to loosen. It won't stay put, so you'll have to loosen, and slide the belt off say, the water pump pulley(also for the fan), then you can let the tension off. Hope this is what you were looking for.

Actually you do not loosen the nut. You use an extended wrench to get ahold of the nut and then use that to move the whole tensioner. It is spring loaded and will move with a little force. make sure it is a tensioner and not an idler bearing.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much! As you indicated I was fooling around with the idler. You made this easy for me. Many Thanks."

When I try to start my 2006 Chevrolet uplander it just clicks and wont start. Why?


Maybe bad battery or corroded battery terminals. I'd look at the terminals first and clean them with sandpaper, knife, wire brush,etc. still won't start get a jump and see if it will start and go to Advance Auto or a auto parts store like it and get a Charging system check..they'll do it for free and you'll know for sure what it is. And if you end up needing a battery they'll install it for free. Next in line is the Alternator and that may be something you'll want to get a mechanic for.

2006 uplander replaced battery month ago then replaced again yesterday cuz it was leaking now new battery is leaking and car has a misfire code


check your alternator.if it is overcharging it can cause the battery to leak. IT should be built into the alternator, however if it is not have the voltage regulator checked as well. After you do this reset your computer and if the cylinder misfire code returns you will need to inspect your plug and coilpack/wire.

I need to find out how to remove the alternator from my 2002 Kia Spectra


The steps to replace an alternator are:
  1. Do the following through the passenger side of the engine bay of course with the hood up.
  2. First and most important is to disconnect the negative connection to the battery (driver side).
  3. Using a 12mm socket loosen the tension adjusting screw and bracket screw. Using a 10mm socket or open end remove wirings. Pinched other connector to remove.
  4. Using 14mm socket with 3/8 drive ratchet remove the big bolt on the lower side of the alternator.
  5. You might need some help from a pipe for extra leverage.
  6. Remove all parts that will hinder the removal of the alternator.For example the charcoal cannister on the firewall just slide up.
  7. Ease the alternator through the opening by turning the alternator untile it can pass through the opening.
