Never heard of a "clio", but a 2004 probably does not have an adjustment but rather a tensioner which could be faulty.

Alternator belt

If your trying to adjust your alternator belt, you have to loosen all the lockdown bolts before you can adjust the alternator. When you get the right tension on the belt, tighten the lockdown bolts.

I'm changing out a bad alternator on a 2004 mustang ,where is the belt tensioner locateed?

usually right under the alternator sometimes the alternator is the belt tensioner, if so then just loosen the alternator bolts and in should move inwards a little allowing you to get the belt off, if thats the case then make sure you have a pry bar of some sort to adjust the new alternator so the belt will be tight

Does my renault master dci 120 have a cambelt or camchain its a2004 model

as far as i can tell, it should have a belt.

i have found various figures for how often you should change these belts and all are from renault dealers......

most seem to say that the belt should be changed every 3 years or 60,000 miles and this is the figure that i would accept myself.

other figures range i have found are 40,000 54,000 and 70,000

all of these figures are from renaul dealership websites.

hope this helps

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.

I have a 2004 mitsubishi lancer es and need to change the alternator belt. I was wondering if anyone knows how or has a diagram?

To move the alternator you have to loosen the bolt that holds the bottom of the alternator. Then loosen the bolt on the block that the long adjuster bolt goes through. Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt to move the alternator. To adjust the power steering bolt, you need to loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (Holds it in place, Goes through the center of the pulley). Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt on the front of the motor to tighten or loosen the front belt.

Removing the Old Alternator Step1 Pull your Mazda into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool. Step2 Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery. Step3 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. Step4 Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble. Step5 Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the Mazda. Installing the New Alternator Step1 Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet. Step2 Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place. Step3 Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one. Step4 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. Step5 Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram. Step6 Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.
