Belt diagram should be on one of the interior fender wells in the engine compartment. Otherwise I'd suggest downloading a copy of the Chilton's Manual for your vehicle

Testimonial: "nope no belt diagrams in the engine compartment."

  • jabberwoky Apr 03, 2015

    Since the advent of the serpentine belt, manufacturers have been placing routing diagrams in the engine compartment. If your's is missing? then Chilton's is the way to go.

  • jabberwoky Apr 04, 2015

    another clue as to belt installation is that a ribbed pulley uses the inside of the belt while a smooth pulley uses the outside. start with the the crankshaft (ribbed pulley)

Makes squealing noise


You need to check the belt that drives the alternator for proper operation. The belt may be old and worn, or a pulley may be not freewheeling, but seized or with a bad bearing. Possibly the tension on the belt is too loose from a worn out tensioner.

First, spray a little water on the belt with engine running and see if noise goes away, possibly a worn belt. Pull the belt off and check all pulleys. Spin them by hand and see if spins easy, no rough feeling or a catch when spun. Check alternator pulley, idler pulley, tensioner pulley, PS pump pulley and A/C compressor pulley-check them all for free wheeling. If good check the tension on the belt when installed. If unsure, have a mechanic check tension with a belt tension tool.
If belt is good and pulleys good, check alternator output with a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. If voltmeter is below 13.5 volts, the charging system is still not working properly. Have it checked out.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


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.

    Tryimg to loosen belt to replace ac belt


    BEFORE ADJUSTING THE ALTERNATOR BELT DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE OR YOU MIGHT BLOW AN EXPENSIVE HIDDEN FUSE.
    I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
    To take off the alternator belt .
    First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
    To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.

    The car squeals horribly but seems to get better when it is warmed up,had problems in the summer when after squealing the amber engine light would come on for days on end,car was sent to my misubishi...


    Most times the squealing noise heard on start up and for some time after is caused by a loose belt driving the alternator. The alternators job is to replace voltage lost when using anything electrical. Your starter takes more voltage (actually amperage) than just about anything else in the car. If the belt isn't tight enough the belt will slip when trying to turn the alternator till eventually enough power is restored to the battery (while slipping, it's still charging but to a far lesser degree).
    Most cars use a spring loaded belt tensioner. If the tensioner spring becomes weak from age, it will allow slipping. If that has been going on for a long time, the pulley on the alternator likely has become glazed and needs to be roughed up a bit with sandpaper or often even after the tensioner has been replaced the pulley will continue to slip. (it takes about 5 horsepower to turn a alternator when it is at its max charging rate and therefore resists being turned)
    So, replace the tensioner and make sure the alternator pulley is not glazed and you should not have further problems. Not sure about the light but likely it's related.

    How to change belts 2003 mitsubishi galant


    All Mitsubishi cars pretty much hide the water pump under the timing belt. You should buy all new belts for the car and if you have 150,000+ miles consider replacing the water pump at the same time.
    You will have to take off the power steering belt .
    First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
    To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust the steering pump belt.
    Now take off the upper belt cover, support the motor, take off the motor mount, jack up the right front corner of the car, take off the front right tire, take off the engine plastic under cover.
    Line up the TDC timing mark on the cover to the mark on the pulley, take off the lower pulleys,
    take off the lower engine cover, observe the timing marks/arrows and highlight with paint (crank marks and cam marks should all line up if not , rotate the crankshaft one full turn.), loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley ,take off the timing belt, counter balancer belt if there is one. Now you can unbolt the water pump, scrape the gasket, and replace it.
    The good news is, if you have tools,a compressor, an air gun(for lower pulley bolt), patience , and four to eight hours to kill, you can actually save money and do it your self.

    I have a noisey fan belt in my 1996 Mitsubishi Lancer. How do I fix it? Thank you Ray


    ways to change the belt.......\ First pop the hood and find the serpentine and alternator belts on the left side of the engine compartment. The serpentine belt runs around four pulleys. The alternator belt uses two pulleys. They share space on the drive shaft so they are right next to each other.
    Of the four pulleys using the serpentine belt, three of them are vertically in line (closer to the front of the car) and the fourth stands alone (closer to the cab). Of the three vertically in line, the middle pulley is the one used to adjust the tension on the belt.
    You must first break loose the bolt in the center of the tension pulley (the bolt is facing the passenger tire) by turning it counter clockwise. Then leave that bolt and go to the bolt connected frame connected to the other side of the tension pulley (this bolt is facing the front of the car). Turn that bolt counter clockwise until the serpentine belt is loose enough to pull off. Replace the belt and tighten in the opposite order. Once the desired tension is reached, crank the car and run it for a few minutes. Finally cut the car off and check the tension, tighten or loosen as neccessary.
    thank you!!!!
