Replace alternator belt


  • 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.

    How to remove alternator



    Park vehicle on level ground.
    2. Remove battery from vehicle.
    3. Remove air cleaner outlet hose, engine under cover ( right side ) and exhaust pipe # 2 .
    4. Disconnect " B " terminal wire and coupler from the Alternator ( Generator ) .
    5. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) belt.

    6. Remove power steering pump. Do not disconnect hoses.
    6. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) cover.
    7. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) bracket mounting bolts.
    8. Remove Alternator ( Generator ).

    Power Steering pump has three bolts- 2 behind the pulley at 12 and 6 o'clock and one bolt on the back.

    Once you get the power steering pump out of the way you can remove the last bolt on the alternator


    Ok...I did not remove axle or disconnect hoses on power steering...I did unbolt power steering pump and moved off to side.

    after that I disconnected sensor on throttle body and very carefully lifted alternator through the top where your air intake assembly would have been at, right next to A.C. refrigerant lines.It takes a minute , you HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE SENSOR!!

    However it is a lot faster that taking off drive shaft and exhaust pipe!

    If you go to AutoZone .com they have exploded diagrams of the parts you have to take off and they will show you bolt locations, the power steering pump bolt at 6 o'clock drove me crazy.

    P.S. Get a ratcheting 12 mil wrench, it's a life and knuckle saver!!

    Replace the alternator on a 97 isuzu rodeo


    from Yahoo answers
    The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!

    Hope this helps you out!!
