Well it really depends on the car that you have... but on most cars when you open the hood there should be a picture, a diagram of how the belts go on... it should either be on the fan guard of on the hood... give it a look

    I'm not sure how to replace my alternator belt easy question I hope.


    Its a simple question lol. By the alternator there should be an adjustment arm, it allows the alternator to be adjusted and move up and down. If you look at the alternator area you will see what all holds it together. The bottom bolt that holds the alternator in place doesn't need to be messed with. You may have to loosen the top bolt, but loosen the adjuster and push the alternator down to slide the old belt off and install the new belt and tighten everything back up. Adjust the adjustment arm to tighten the belt to spec.

    How to install 03 ford focus alternator?


    Removing the Alternator
    Disconnect battery ground cable
    Remove the ground wire (black) from the alternator
    Disconnect the positive wire (red wire held on by a retaining nut) from the back of the alternator
    Now disconnect the wire harness from the alternator
    Remove the drive belt
    NOTE: Some models use a belt tensioner that applies tension to the drive belt.
    The best tool to use for this job is the serpentine belt too.
    If you can borrow one from a neighbour you can get one at PartSource. (Part# 648451)
    On other models you will have to loosen the adjusting bolt on the alternator bracket.
    If you're not sure about how to remove the drive belt, visit your local PartSource for free print outs of vehicle specific instructions.
    Take off the mounting bolts from the alternator bracket
    Now remove the alternator from the engine compartment There. You've removed the alternator. How easy was that?
    Installing Your New Alternator
    Put the alternator in the engine compartment
    Install the mounting bolts that connect the alternator to the alternator bracket
    Connect the alternator wiring harness
    Now connect the positive wire to the alternator
    NOTE: Your new alternator should come with a retaining nut.
    Remember to remove the nut before you install the positive wire.
    If it doesn't keep the old nut.
    Connect the ground wire to the alternator
    Now install the drive belt
    This is a great time to replace your old worn out belt. When inspecting your old belt look for signs of cracking, oil soaked, hard glazed, splitting or fraying.
    All these signs mean it's time you replaced your drive belt.
    If your vehicle no longer has the belt routing diagram under the hood, visit your local PartSource for a free print out of the belt routing diagram.
    Reconnect the ground battery cable .

    LOW BATTERY CHARGE ON NEW BATTERY-2000 kia Sephia


    i would take the belt off and then check the idler pulley assembly..it could be worn out..since the belt is off check the alternator pulley for any play also. A loose belt will not help the battery to keep a charge. if everything looks o.k. and you said you have a new battery and belt then it looks like your alternator went bad. Hope this helps.

    Bad alternator


    Disconnect the negative clamp on the battery. Remove the bolt on the adjustment arm (the one with the slot) of the alternator. Loosen the pivot bolt at the bottom of the Alt. Swing the alt inward to loosen the belt. Take the belt of the pulley. Take off the wires noting where they attach. Remove the pivot bolt. You should be able to take the alt off now. Reverse the sequence but when adjusting the belt tension pry the side of the alternator with a bar so the belt can only be deflected about three quarters of an inch. Tighten the adjustment bolt. Don't over tighten the belt. It'll prematurely wear your bearings. Don't under tighten. It'll squeal.
