If this is like mine it's a pig of a job, you need a lot of time and patience, as the alternator is at the back of the engine and you have to remove all the plastic shroud that covers all your other pulleys and timing belts, you will find that it's very difficult to get the shrouds of let alone getting to them as there is no clearance you will have to remove the engine mounting under the gear box to tilt the engine even then it still difficult. I've done all my time belts ect. and would advise you to take it to a garage and let them do it yes it will cost you but well worth it, believe me it's a job and a half.
Good luck you will need it.

SOURCE: belt tensioner

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The tensioner is located underneath the lower cover along side the timing belt on the passenger side. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace the tensioner, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it right.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: consistent belt squelling replaced belts

sounds as if you have a pulley/accessory that is out of alignment-most likely either ac or alternator- it takes very little to make it noisy.either cleaning mount for out of alignment accessory or washers to move forward can cure it sometimes

SOURCE: Kia sedona, broke the bolt to the serpentine tensioner pulley, now what

Asuming you broke it off in a blind hole, if you have a wire feed center a nut over the remaning stud & weld if on let cool put penetrating oil on it & work it gently back & forth even if its below the surface slightly on aluminum or cast the weld will not bond to the surface just the bolt you may need to do this process several times then go to dealler for new bolt. Note this works extremly well on broken ex. manifold bolts, we havent drilled in years hope this helps Danny

SOURCE: replacing an alternator belt on a 2006 kia sorento

So whats difficult about this -nothing the tensioner is the belt adjuster/tensioner ,use a ring spanner and use the ring end then lock another spanner over the end and turn the tensioner against the spring loading ,simple .watch it though as some use a left handed thread on the pulley

the above video (of book?) is wrong.
the belt tension-ing step was skipped.

remove belt steps remove alt. wiring. remove alternator (bolts) it falls free. replace it , reverse steps above belt back tension belt. battery cable back. test run. charge/BAT lamp off?
see wrench below, turn it CW.
this releases the spring tension and belt comes off

Hi, I have pasted the procedure for belt replacement below. To replace the tensioner as well, first take the belt off. Then remove the pulley from the tensioner. This will expose the single bolt that holds the tensioner on. Replace the tensioner and then the pulley (if replacing all). Then reinstall the belt.

Alternator/Power Steering Pump Belt
The alternator/power steering pump belt is provided with a dynamic tensioner to maintain proper belt tension.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the front of the vehicle and safely support it with jackstands.
  3. Remove the right front splash shield.
  4. Release tension by rotating the tensioner clockwise (use a box-end wrench on the tensioner bolt shown in the picture.
  5. Remove the belt and install a replacement.
  6. Proper belt tension is maintain by the dynamic tension.
  7. Install the right front splash shield. Lower the front of the vehicle.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

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.
