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.

    I can't get my serpentine belt back on after changing my alternator. What do I do now?


    Hi Friend:

    #1) On your vehicle you have a Serpitine Belt tensioner ,your Serpitine Belt runs on this also;

    #2) Locate your Belt Tensioner its (Aluminum) and is Spring Loaded to kep your Belt at the Proper Tension.

    #3) On the front side of the Tensioner there is a Bolt Head, Get a Breaker Bar ,Correct size Socket or(Ratchet and Socket)

    #4) With the tool on the bolt head the Tensioner will move by applying pressure to the Tension.It will only move 1-Way when applying Pressure with Your Tool.

    #5) By Moving the Tensioner you will be getting enough Slack that you Can Put the Belt Back on.

    #6) You should have a Belt Routing Diagram on your Cooling Fan Shruod or the Frame in Front of it.

    #7) Just take a Good look at how the Belt HAS to Be Routed it will only work 1-Way.

    #8) So Follow the Diagram for Routing and you should have no Problems. Don't Forget it Will not Go on Correctly until you Apply perssure to your Belt Tensioner.

    Please let me Know how well i have Assited you.By voting .And a Testamony would be Appreciated.

    Replacing serpitine belt tension pulley ? Is the center bolt left handed threads or right handed? What size is the head on that bolt?


    Lefty Loosey, Righty Tighty. As you look at the bolt from the front of the engine. It should loosen when turned counter clockwise. Curios though, why are you removing and replacing the tensioner? If your having trouble with belt tension it is most likely the belt.

    Timing belt “B” (balancer belt) and related components—2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine


    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the engine under cover.
    2. Remove the crankshaft damper pulley.
    3. Disconnect the control wiring harness connector, battery wiring harness connector and connector bracket to engine mounting insulator.
    4. Remove the harness bracket. Remove the upper timing belt cover. Remove the water pump pulley. Remove the idler pulley.
    5. Remove the auto tensioner. Remove the lower timing belt cover.
    6. Turn the crankshaft clockwise and align each timing mark to set the number one piston to TDC of its compression stroke.
    7. Remove the timing belt under cover rubber plug and then install special tool MD998738. Screw the special tool until it contacts the timing belt tensioner arm.

      NOTE The special tool must be screwed in gradually at the rate of a 30 degree turn per second. If it is screwed in all at once, the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod will not easily retract and the tool may bend.

    8. Gradually screw in the special tool and then align the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod set hole “A” with the timing belt tensioner adjuster cylinder set hole “B”.
    9. Insert a wire or pin in the set holes to lock the assembly in place. After removing the special tool, loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolts and remove the timing belt. If the belt is being reused be sure to mark the direction of rotation (clockwise) on the belt.
    10. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, tensioner arm and adjuster.
    11. Remove the timing belt idler pulley. Remove the timing belt lower cover bracket. Remove the crankshaft position sensor.
    12. Remove the crankshaft pulley center bolt and washer. Remove the drive sprocket. Remove the crankshaft angle sensing blade.
    13. Remove the balancer timing belt tensioner. Remove the timing belt “B” (balancer belt) from its mounting.

    2003 Lancer ES High pitch squeal and constant squeak


    Shortly after replacing the serpentine belt in my lancer, the same thing happened. It is NOT the timing belt. Belts squeal when they slip. If your timing belt slipped it would cause your car to run funny.

    have somebody check the belt for wear (or do it yourself), replace if necessary. If it doesn't need replacement, just tighten it.

    If you have the 4cyl engine that I have, the tightening is kind of a pain in the ****. Not a great design by mitsubishi. There's a pulley near the front right corner of the engine in front of the alternator. the belt should be running around this pulley GROOVE SIDE OUT. This is the tension pulley.

    To tighten:
    1) Lightly loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (slightly loosen, DO NOT REMOVE).
    2) Under that pulley there's another bolt. You can see that the bolt goes through a piece of metal
    attached to the back of the pulley. Figure out which way you need to turn the bolt to move the
    pulley toward the front of the car. (i don't remember if it's right hand thread, or left hand) This
    puts extra tension on the belt. You probably don't need much. Over tensioning the belt can
    cause pulley bearing failure. If you haven't done this work before, ask someone for
    help
    . It's better to tighten a little bit, a few times rather than overtighten once.
    3) Don't forget to ReTighten the bolt in the center of the pulley.

    If there's lots of cracks and pieces missing on the ribs or grooves of the belt you should replace it first.

    Happy repairing,
    Cliff

    Instructions


    Just did mine today.....Jack up the front as high as possible, remove front passenger wheel, put jackstands under car so it doesn't come down on you, remove the plastic inside fender well by taking out the 2 bolts and 3 plastic toggles, you need to remove the alternator belt to get to the power steering belt so loosen the center nut on the idler pulley/tensioner and then loosen the idler using the bottom nut/bolt to take the tension off the belt, remove the alternator belt first drawing a picture of how the belt is routed on all the pulleys for reassembly. Now loosen the 2 face nuts/bolts on the power steering belt idler pulley/tensioner and then use the nut/bolt on it's bottom to take the tesion off the belt and then remove the belt. Reinstall the belt and reverse everything to get it back together. Put on a new alternator belt on while your at it.

    Serpintine belt on replacement on 2002 chevy trailblazer


    You should not have to take off your fan or your shroud to replace the belt. Its all under a tensioner pulley you have to put a 18 mm wrench on and pull towards the inside and you should see the belt loosen up enough to take belt off.
