Need to change alternator


loosen tensioner bolt, but do not remove bolt. tensioner will drop down enough to get your belt back on. then lift tensioner back into position it was, re-tighten bolt. belt rides over top of of tensioner smooth pulley, note , sometimes the tensioner wears out and needs replaced, go to rockauto .com for best price. also, have the alternator bolts loosened when putting belt back on , this will help , but remember to re-tighten them after belt is on.

I'm not sure how to replace my alternator belt easy question I hope.


Its a simple question lol. By the alternator there should be an adjustment arm, it allows the alternator to be adjusted and move up and down. If you look at the alternator area you will see what all holds it together. The bottom bolt that holds the alternator in place doesn't need to be messed with. You may have to loosen the top bolt, but loosen the adjuster and push the alternator down to slide the old belt off and install the new belt and tighten everything back up. Adjust the adjustment arm to tighten the belt to spec.

How to change the power steering belt on a 2004 mitsubishi galant


The power steering belt is on the front of the motor and is driven by the crankshaft. Below the steering pump is an adjuster bolt. It moves a pulley underneath the pump. To adjust the belt tension located the nut that tightens the adjuster pulley the the pump bracket . It is on the right side of the bracket , the pulley is on the left facing the back of the car. Loosen the pulley mount nut . You can now turn the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to tighten and loosen the belt for replacement. I recommend replacing the alternator belt at the same time. To do this , Unhook the negative battery cable, loosen the bolt holding block to the slide arm, reach under the alternator and loosen the lower mount bolt, not you can adjust the position of the alternator using the adjuster bolt.

How to tighten belt on 2004 nissan quest


Best to remove the front passenger side wheel. Then snap out the clips that are holding the plastic cover towards the front. Now it will expose the belt area. Loosen the locking nut of the tensioner(idler) pulley located to the right of the Crankshaft Pulley. Crankshaft pulley is the one that handles both belts (alternator and the power sterring pump). Right to that next to it, upwards is the idler pulley. You will find the alternator pulley to the right of that further up. Open the hood of the van and locate the adjusting nut behind the alternator on the idler pulley from top and loosen that as well. Once both these are loosened, belt will loosen and will be easy to remove. Now replace it with the new belt the same way it was wrapped. Go over the crankshaft pulley; under the A/C compressor pulley; over the alternator pulley; under the idler pulley. tighten the adjusting nut from the top through the hood until the play on the belt (when pressed in) is less than 1 inch. Now lock the tensioner pulley by tightening the locking nut. Start and run the car for 15 mins to see if everything is ok.

How do I replace an alternator on a 2000 VW Passat 1.8T. How hard is it to replace?


it isnt that hard actually

disconect positive battery terminal. and feel the tension on the laternator belt. you will need to bring it back to this tension.

1.) loosen bolts holding alternator in place (LOOK AT THE BELT TO REMEMBER HOW IT GOES, BEST NOT REMOVE THE BELT.)

2.) loosen bolts holding wires to alternator and connect wires to new alternator

3.) Place alternator in engine, replace bolts but dont tighten

4.) put belt in place, it will be slack, use your tire iron or a piece of pipe or wood to pry the alternator back, to bring tension on the belt. You pry the alternator to pull the belt as TIGHT AS POSSIBLE. while holding strain, on it, tighten the bolts.

Need to tighten alternator belt


The alternator is held in place by two bolts.

Top and bottom bolts - 12 mill bolts.

By loosening the bolts (especially the top bolt) you will find that the alternator can be manipulated forward and backwards alongs it housing (guides). To tighten the alternator belts all you need to do is push the alternator away from the tensioners and tighten the belt as required.

Once the belt is taut, but not stetched, simply tighten the two bolts up again and check that the belt has not lost its tension when you where tightening the belts.
