How to fit a alternator belt on a ford focus 16.00 can you send me a pick


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }


Simply follow the steps


Disconnect the battery's negative cable and set it aside where it can't accidentally snap back onto the terminal.


Remove the car's accessory drive belt. Disconnect the belt shield by removing its two 10-mm bolts, push up on the tensioner by hand, pull the belt off the air conditioner or water pump pulley and remove the rest of the belt. Take note of how the belt loops around each pulley.

Open the cover containing the alternator's electrical connectors and disconnect them. Remove the bolt on the coolant expansion tank then detach the tank from its clip and secure it away. Detach the power steering reservoir, engine wiring loom bracket, ground cable and evaporative emission canister purge valve.


Unscrew and remove the alternator's first bolt on its right side. Unscrew the second bolt on the left and disengage it fully from the bracket; it cannot be removed from the alternator. Remove the alternator from the engine.


Install the new alternator, placing the built-in bolt within the bracket and tightening it first. Insert and tighten the second bolt.


Replace all other objects set aside in the reverse order they were detached. (evaporative emission canister purge valve, ground cable, engine wiring loom bracket, power steering reservoir and coolant expansion tank). Plug in the electrical connectors and replace the cover over them.


Replace the accessory drive belt. Loop it over all the pulleys except the one on the air conditioner. Retract the tensioner upwards as you did before to fit the belt on the A/C pulley.


Reconnect the battery cable.

I need a belt diagram for a 91 Geo Metro. I am replacing the alternator belt, but need to get the first belt off.I do not know where the belt tension adjustment bolt is for the first belt.


I believe the air conditioner belt tensioner bolt is underneath the mounting bracket on the compressor, then you can remove the alternator belt by loosening the two bolts from underneath on the alternator then loosen the top bolt and be careful prying the alternator inward to loosen the belt you can short a wire connection. Remove one of the battery cables to be safe!

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
