SOURCE: need 2 replace fan belt for mazda 323f 1998

The belt runs on a number of pulleys. One of which is the bottom one, called the crankshaft pulley. This is the one rotating when engine runs, driving the other pulleys with the belt. The crankshaft pulley is not adjustable, so you need to follow the path of the belt around the other pulleys. One of these will be attached to some accessory like an alternator or a water or steering pump. If there is no independent tensioner pulley, one of these accessories will have some sort of tensioning device. Could be a slotted bracket, or a long tensioner bolt that moves the accessory up or down, thereby tightening or loosening the belt tension. When you see which one it is, loosen attaching bolts for that one, and adjust accordingly. TT

SOURCE: my belts have broken. Car overheated, lost power

It looks like you may have 2 serpentine belts, but when one fails it almost always gets tangled into the any other belts and they all end up coming off, all of the problems u listed are driven off your belts, replace the belts and hope that the overheat didn't cause any damage to the engine. And yes you have what are called serpintine belts and there is a tensioner for each..

SOURCE: Mazda 323f sport 1999. How do you adjust parking brake?

Where the handbrake lever is,it will be covered by a boot of some sort.Peel this back and beside the lever will be either a rod with a nut on it,or it will have a recess for a screwdriver.with the h/brake off,do the adjustment by tightening it.When it's right, the h/brake should have to be pulled so 7 'clicks' can be heard.Hope this helps

Toyota corolla 1996 alternator tensioner spec


The Drive Belt (used) should be between 60-100lbf. Check for wear and any cracks on the belt. If you have a new belt the tension will be higher, that is bewteen 100-150lbf. Use a belt tension checker to measure this. Adjust the tensioning bolt located beneath the alternator until the tension is met. Hope that help you out.

A pulley broke on my 1996 mazda millenia and im trying to find out which pulley it is.


you're not giving me much to go on,but I'll guess it's the 'serpentine belt tensioner pulley' identified by the 'arm 'it was attached to being spring loaded to maintain belt tension.replacements are available.check belt condition while you're at it.

Alternator drive belt squealing


yeh, mine did the same thing with a hydralic belt. it was the bearings. mazda capellas use a lot of 6202 bearings which, luckily, are fairly cheap, and are commonly used in pool pumps. so you can find them at pool pump repair stores. although pool pumps use 6202 2RSR bearings. these are just the water proof type, but are excactly the same size and can be used.
to test if it is a bearing problem, remove the belt and try to twist the individual wheels by hand, you should be able to turn the 2 smaller ones.
from memory the alternator belt is in a fairly in accessable postition so the belt is going to be hard to put back on.try other things first, like wiping the inner side of the belt with a dry cloth to remove moisture.
worst case senario is your alternator has, or is starting to, seize up and you need to replace it.
