2005 Chevy Express 1500 8 cylinder: How can I find an accurate diagram for removing the fan shroud and replacing the serpentine belt?


There should be two bolts at the bottom and two at the top of the shroud to remove it. There should also be a diagram of the serpentine belt located somewhere under the hood or by the hood latch.

What's your problem?1995 gmc safari alternator replacement. Need some kind of diagramed overview of the alternator and how it connects, what it looks like, how to do it basically


Hello! First see Serpentine Belt configuration diagram below... Alternator is part "C"...

If you have a voltmeter...read across the battery with engine off...Record...Start engine read again...Voltage must be 1.8 -2 volts higher; This means Alternator is working...

To Remove:disconnect (-) battery cable...Air Inlet Duct...Serpentine Belt (idler pulley maintains tension)...Heater hose brace...Wiring from Alternator...Mounting bolts...Remove alternator...

To Install: Install Alternator loosely...Tighten Rear Bolt to 37 ft. lbs...Front bolt to 18ft. lbsTighten Brace to Intake to 18ft lbs....Connect wiring...Install belt...Adjust Idler Pulley so belt moves less than 3/4" when tight...Connect (-) battery cable....Re-test as noted above...Guru...........Saaile

How do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


Hello there,
To replace the alternator in your car:
Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
All the best. Elect_Comp

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 do I replace the alternator


    Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

    Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

    Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

    Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

    Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

    Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

    INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

    Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

    Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

    Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

    Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

    Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

    Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

    Thanks

    I am trying to replace the serpentine belt on a 2002 mustang 6 cyl. I took the old belt off by loosing the alternator however I cannot ssem to stretch the new belt to fit?


    Hi,
    If this belt serves all the rotating components, I would imagine you have a spring-loaded tensioner.
    This is actually the item you would need to pry back, in order to remove and install a belt. Your user's manual may assist you on the belt routing, and you may also have a picture diagram in your engine compartment.
    Hope this is accurate and helps you... Good luck!

    Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
    Remove serpentine belt.
    remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
    replace reverse of removal.
    4 out of 10 difficulty.
    Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
    See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
    While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.
