Open the bonnet of the Pajero, and turn the bolt on the centre of the tension pulley with a socket wrench two full rotations. The tension pulley is the pulley directly behind the fan in the upper portion of the front of the engine.
Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tension pulley bracket. This bolt is on the left-hand side, situated in a long horizontal groove.
Slip the fan belt off of the engine. Draw a diagram of the path of the fan belt if the factory printed sticker diagram is no longer in the front of your engine on your Pajero.
Insert the new fan belt, winding it through the various pulleys according to your diagram. Put it on the tensioner pulley last.
Place the tension belt tool on the tension pulley bolt and pull until the slack in the belt is gone. When there is no slack, keep the pressure on the pulley, and tighten the adjuster bolt with the wrench. Tighten the lock bolt on the pulley.
The A/C compressor has its own belt and tensioner. The alternator, p/s pump, and water pump use the other belt and tensioner. Make sure you check the A/C belt while you're digging around in there. If it is cracked replace it.
Your Catera does not have a fan belt, it has an accessory belt. The fan is electrically operated using a thermal switch.
To replace the accessory belt, you use a ratchet head to loosen the tensioner pulley, and slide the belt off one pulley, then release the tensioner and finish removing the belt. You install the new belt on all but the pulley closest to the tensioner, release the tension with a ratchet head, then install the belt on the tensioner pulley and release the tensioner so that it applies pressure on the belt.
This is a difficult problem for an English-speaking person (me) - but I will guess at what you are saying is wrong with your Ranger......
You have a loose fan belt.
I believe that the belt is Surpentine - and, therefor has a belt tensioner. A loose belt normally exists if the tensioner spring is weak. Other possibility is that the belt has stretched beyond the ability of the tensioner to keep it tight.
Either replace the belt (about 30 dollars, US) or replace the tensioner. (Your 2002 probably has enough miles on it to justify replacing the belt anyway!!)
2.0L Engines See Figures 11, 12 and 13 The
accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt
adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive
belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. Movement of
the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign
of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner
self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
