Not knowing what type of vehicle makes it hard to understand what you are asking. Alternator belt should have nothing to do with timing.

Good luck, FREE-PPV

How do I change the alternator on 2005 sebring

Will most vehicles, the alternator is located near the top with a belt going directly to it. This makes removal easier as you only need open the hood (bonnet) for access. Disconnect the battery's negative terminal first, and then disconnect the alternator's electrical connector. Loosen the belt tensioning bolt (also serves to affix the alternator) and tap it with a hammer to get it free to move to remove the tension from the belt. Unscrew the bolt completely and the alternator will be off. If you don't have the new alternator with you, put the bolt back in the mounting hole and snug it up so you won' misplace it. Buy a new alternator belt and inspect the starter belt while you at it. It is easier to change both at the same time, but the starter requires you get under the car to loose it from belt tension.

My 2007 rav 4 just stopped. Charging light came on, is this the timing belt and can my husband change this or do we need to take the car to a dealer

Charging Light has to do with the Alternator

Charging Circuit --electrical/alternator !!!!

Timing Belt/engines valves !!!!

Your saying the timing belt broke & your car stopped
& won't start ????

You do speak to your husband I assume
Did he say he could change a timing belt?

You NEVER need a dealer for any car repairs EVER

There a hundreds of thousands of repair shops that are
there to solve your cars issues
There is nothing special at a dealer but the high prices

Looking for an overview of changing power steering belt

Remove the 14mm bolt securing the alternator tensioner to the alternator. Then take the tensioner off and use a prybar to slide the alternator back enough to take off the belt. Then loosen the 14mm p/s tensioer bolt. slide the pump back and change the belt.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Good luck.

Installation of a timing belt that loosened during removal of alternator for '05 Toyota Camry LE

Your timing belt has nothing to do with the alternator. You must mean your fan belt do you? The serpentine belt that you loosened to change the alternator? There should be a directional sticker under your hood somewhere, to show you how to put it back on. If not, just put ribs to ribs, and flats to flats, and work your way around.

Odds are the alternator must always be removed to change a timing belt. The alternator is either up top or hidden own under the bottom. Either way if you think about it man it has to be pretty easy to find it has the belt connected to it.
