loosen the bolt that is holding the adjuster of the alternator. loosen the belt by pulling it and the alternator would slide in. remove and replace the belt.

On the right side of the pulleys, there should be 3 top, middle, and bottom. The middle, smaller one, is the tensioner.

SOURCE: How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer

I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
good luck.

SOURCE: belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt

The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

How do i remove all three belts?


Each belt has a tension method, look for the bolt that a device, like alternator, could be a pivot point.
Take good fotos first or draw diagrams before you start.

One of the three drive belts on my 1986 corolla (4a-c engine) is frayed and needs replacing. The belt loops around the idler pulley, air conditioner? and crank. Can I just cut this belt out and not use...


to replace the belt you need to see what size socket the tensioner has on the inside. with a ratchet attached put the socket on the inside bolt and push in the rotation to move the spring down taking the tension off of the belt. Pull the belt off and be sure to replace it with one of the same lenght. to install the belt, push the tensioner down and pull the belt over it. the tensioner will adjust itself to the correct tension.

I need to remove the engine belts


The A/C and alternator are easy enough. They both have bolts that hold them in place/adjust the belt tension. Loosen these bolts and shift your alternator and A/C compressor to free the belts. The timing belt? It requires removing the valve cove.

How do i replace an air conditioner belt on my 96 corolla?


First you must remove the alternator belt. Loosen the alternator bracket then the alternator tensioner bolt, and remove the alternator belt. Then you have access for the a/c belt.

How to change the Compressor and Alternator belts? Corolla 1997


First, you will need a lot of money. A GM air conditioner compressor is very expensive.

I would only let a qualified mechanic make this replacement.

After all, the compressor costs about 800 to 1,000 dollars. i would only trust a mechanic to work on my cadillac
