Replaced alternater now cant get belt back on cant find adjuster

well not having put one on myself, here goes.all your pulleys that are smooth on the outside means the back of the belt is goin to be touching it, whereas the grooved side of the belt is gonna face the grooved side of the pulley.the adjuster just tightens the belt.good luck

Dont know how to tightin the belt on my 2002 chrysler srebring! got the new alt.... in, but cant tightin the belt back up,i took the belt off by taking off the alt.....bolts

Have you tried to start it yet?That may be all you need to do to get the tensioner to re-activate and get the proper tightness.Be quick though.Only a brief start,then check it to see if it is any better.

My belt slipped and i cant get it back on. do i need to loosen something or what?also the bottom right pulley is eating into the bracket what causes that?

hi this sounds like the actual bearings have gone in the pulley, hence the belt coming off, you will have to replace that pulley or what ever it is that the pulley is attached to ie power steering pump, water pump, etc, to put the belt back on after the repair has been done, you will need to loosen off one of the tensioner pulleys to put it back on...hope this helps

I cant remove the serpentine belt

Look for a hole you can fit the square end of a ratchet in. Should be a 3\8 or 1\2 inch drive. Or it's a pulley with a spring in it. It will look like it's on a lever type thingy. Just put a wrench on the bolt in the middle of the pulley turn to the left, bolt turns, wrong one, pulley moves, right one. Don't forget to take a pic of the belt so you know how to put it back on.

I changed the altenator, but cant get the belt to go back on right. I tried putting it on the back half of the double pulley, but the car sqealed and didnt run right, but when the belt is angled funny...

If the belt is angled funny, you do not have it routed correctly.
There should be a belt routing diagram under the hood somewhere. Check that the pulley position of the new alternator is the same as the old alternator.

Why not identify your vehicle; Which model? What year? Which engine? Does it have A/C? Answering these questions will allow myself and others to give you a much better answer.
