Question about 1997 Mazda Protege

I am trying to replace the alternator/waterpump belt on a 1997 mazda protege, but there is another belt right in front of it. How do I remove the first belt and the alternator/waterpump belt? And what would be the proper way to put them back on?

It isn't that hard of a fix, I recently had to change the same belt on mine. Right underneath the AC is a tension bolt, just loosen it up enough and the AC unit should roll down to loosen the first belt. You need to do the same process for the other belt. That tension bolt is located underneath the alternator. Just to save yourself the trouble, I would go ahead and replace both belts. A set only cost me $30 at autozone.

Mazda protige 1997 overheating


Some restrictive pulley tension usually is what causes a good belt to wear prematurely. Sounds like the water pump may be the culprit all along...(one of 2 belts) Be sure to have the alternator itself tested (free) at most parts stores...could be a combination of concerns. Hope this helps.

I need to figure out how to change the belt on a 1994 Mazda Protege alternator


GO HERE. It shows the procedure for changing out the complete alternator, but the belt procedure is in there also. You don't have to remove all the stuff mentioned in the instructions. Just loosen the alternator bolts, disconnect the electrical connector and remove and replace the belt. No big deal. Good luck.
