Best solutions is advanceauto they rent the puller that u will need to remove it. It will be like 40$ but they give you the money back no questions asked, after you return it. I have broken a few kits that i rented and they say o well it happens. This is alot better then buy the kit and only ever using it like 2 times.

Good luck

How do you replace the timing belt of Hyundai atos?


these cars are so simple to do but access is awkward to say the least ,Remove the starter motor and buy the correct tool to lock the crankshaft so you can undo the front pulley ,later models are a taper fit and winding the engine over with the starter motor to undo the front pulley will result in bent valves

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Lancer rally timing belt service manual


    You do not really need a manual to change the belts. All Mitsubishi cars pretty much hide the water pump under the timing belt. You should buy all new belts for the car and if you have 150,000+ miles consider replacing the water pump at the same time.
    You will have to take off the power steering belt .
    First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
    To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust the steering pump belt.
    Now take off the upper belt cover, support the motor, take off the motor mount, jack up the right front corner of the car, take off the front right tire, take off the engine plastic under cover.
    Line up the TDC timing mark on the cover to the mark on the pulley, take off the lower pulleys,
    take off the lower engine cover, observe the timing marks/arrows and highlight with paint (crank marks and cam marks should all line up if not , rotate the crankshaft one full turn.), loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley ,take off the timing belt, counter balancer belt if there is one. Now you can unbolt the water pump, scrape the gasket, and replace it.
    The good news is, if you have tools,a compressor, an air gun(for lower pulley bolt), patience , and four to eight hours to kill, you can actually save money and do it your self.

    cardenderek,
    This info is totally bogus.You obviousely have never changed a water pump on a 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel engine.1st off it isnt belt driven it is gear driven from the drive train inside the engine.You have to remove the fan shroud,clutch fan assem.,and harmonic balancer as one of the mounting bolts is behind the balancer.Also remove the left side inner fender for easier access.

      NOTE The special tool must be screwed in gradually at the rate of a 30 degree turn per second. If it is screwed in all at once, the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod will not easily retract and the tool may bend.

    8. Gradually screw in the special tool and then align the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod set hole “A” with the timing belt tensioner adjuster cylinder set hole “B”.
    9. Insert a wire or pin in the set holes to lock the assembly in place. After removing the special tool, loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolts and remove the timing belt. If the belt is being reused be sure to mark the direction of rotation (clockwise) on the belt.
    10. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, tensioner arm and adjuster.
    11. Remove the timing belt idler pulley. Remove the timing belt lower cover bracket. Remove the crankshaft position sensor.

    How to change a timing belt for a lancer


    The rule has been always been first to come out is the last to be attached. You will have to remove the tire where you have the engine mounted (opposite the transmission). Loosen up the fan belt pulley and have them removed. You should have access to the cover for you to get the timing belt out by loosening the tensor. Inspect the other parts or have them replaced, such as water pump to save you the labor.

    Timing belt has a crack in it, i have a new belt how do i replace it on mitsubishi lancer coupe 2002


    Its not really easy to explain over the net. But the front engine cover has to be removed to gain acces to the front of the cams. You will need to remove most al of your belt drive accessories to do this. Its also critical to ensure you line up the timing marks correctly when re assembling (or timing will never be right). You may also want to replace the water pump at this time too...

    2003 Lancer ES High pitch squeal and constant squeak


    Shortly after replacing the serpentine belt in my lancer, the same thing happened. It is NOT the timing belt. Belts squeal when they slip. If your timing belt slipped it would cause your car to run funny.

    have somebody check the belt for wear (or do it yourself), replace if necessary. If it doesn't need replacement, just tighten it.

    If you have the 4cyl engine that I have, the tightening is kind of a pain in the ****. Not a great design by mitsubishi. There's a pulley near the front right corner of the engine in front of the alternator. the belt should be running around this pulley GROOVE SIDE OUT. This is the tension pulley.

    To tighten:
    1) Lightly loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (slightly loosen, DO NOT REMOVE).
    2) Under that pulley there's another bolt. You can see that the bolt goes through a piece of metal
    attached to the back of the pulley. Figure out which way you need to turn the bolt to move the
    pulley toward the front of the car. (i don't remember if it's right hand thread, or left hand) This
    puts extra tension on the belt. You probably don't need much. Over tensioning the belt can
    cause pulley bearing failure. If you haven't done this work before, ask someone for
    help
    . It's better to tighten a little bit, a few times rather than overtighten once.
    3) Don't forget to ReTighten the bolt in the center of the pulley.

    If there's lots of cracks and pieces missing on the ribs or grooves of the belt you should replace it first.

    Happy repairing,
    Cliff
