its not XL7 , its really
a Grand Vitara, XL-7, note the DASH ! please.
no engine stated!!! there 5 engines, must we guess?
no country stated.
no real name of car. not the full name.. Grand Vitara
and it has 2 belts,
a serp belt and 1 more.
but hold my breath is the 2nd belt a serp or is it V belt.... like pumping a dry well here.


the 1 more PS slips, not the alternator belt serp
but is the other, PS slips
but the owner cant find the adjuster.
here see if you can pick and engine.
G16 i4
J20a or b, I4
H25 v6
H27 V6
or the diesel, as seen in EUROPE.
why is so hard to know whats under that hood.
???????????????????????
here is my 2004 GV , see that #5 part here.?
that adjust can be defective or set wrong.
-----------------------------------------------
here is the page, words on H25 tensionor

a) To adjust P/S pump drive belt tension, loosen tension pulley
bolts and turn tension pulley using hexagon wrench.


b) Adjust belt tension to above specification.
Then tighten tension pulley bolts to specified torque.

here is my doing this belt using my tools
see here, H27, 2004 GV

that is a large metric Allen(tm) wrench

    try to know Suzuki are sold world wide
    and they area not all cookie cutter the same. not by a mile.

    or a photo of your engine
    or the VIN
    or the hood sticker in USA shows what is there.
    or if not in usa, now be the time to say,
    no?

SOURCE: toyota echo serpentine belt

The only way to loosen and tighten the serpentine belt is by loosening the alternator and sliding it back or forward. There are TWO bolts that must be loosened, one above, and one below the alternator pulley. A bit of penetrating oil can make things easier.

SOURCE: serpentine belt

You must have just taken the alternator off without releasing the tension from the belt? The tensioner is built onto either the alternator itself or the power steering pump. There should be one or more bolts that need to be loosened and then you will have a bolt that loosens the tensioner bolt attached to either the alternator or power steering pump. Hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner

I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

I NEED A DIAGRAM ON HOW TO INSTALL A NEW ALTERNATOR BELT ON A 1982 TOYOTA CELICA GT WITH A/C.


Hi, it appears there are other belts in front of the alternator belt. In this case, the other belts have to come off first. There are adjusting mechanisms on each the air pump, compressor, and alternator to loosen and tighten the belts. The power steering belt is adjusted by sliding the idler pulley. Please follow the instructions below and let me know if you have any questions.

Fig. Fig. 11: Belt routing on the 4ME, 5ME and 5MG-E engines

Alternator

To adjust the tension of the alternator drive belt on all models, loosen the pivot and mounting bolts on the alternator. Using a wooden hammer handle, a broomstick or your hand, move the alternator one way or the other until the proper tension is achieved.

WARNING Do not use a screwdriver or any other metal device (such as a prybar) as a lever.
Tighten the mounting bolts securely. If a new belt has been installed, recheck the tension after about 200 miles (480 km) of driving.

Air Conditioning Compressor

A/C compressor belt tension can be adjusted by turning the tension adjusting bolt which is located on the compressor tensioner bracket. Turn the bolt clockwise to tighten the belt and counterclockwise to loosen it.

Air Pump

See Figures 12
To adjust the tension of the air pump drive belt, loosen the adjusting lever bolt and the pivot bolt. Move the pump in or out until the desired tension is felt.
The tension should be checked between the air pump and the crankshaft pulley on cars without air conditioning. On cars with A/C, the tension should be checked between the A/C compressor and the crankshaft pulley.

Power Steering Pump

Tension on the power steering belt is adjusted by means of an idler pulley. Turn the adjusting bolt on the idler pulley until the desired tension is felt and then retighten the lockbolt.

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 need a diagram of a 2004 suzuki forenza Serpentine Belt


That's easy, there are some pulleys with ridges to grip the underside of the belt, and some are smooth for the top side of the belt.
I can only assume your belt broke and fell off so you couldn't see how it was on prior. But either way you have limited length, and the last place you would be routing the belt is the tensioner, which you should have located first, so you can have a wrench handy to fit it.

Here's what you have:
Top left= alternator (small ridged)
top right = power steering (large ridged)
Bottom right = AC compressor (large ridged)
Bottom middle = Crank Pulley (large ridged)
In middle next to Power steering = Tensioner (small shiny smooth)

Remove the air cleaner housing (two bolts)
Start on left top side and loop belt (clockwise) across the alternator to the power steering down to AC (also clockwise from right to left) then over to crank pulley (from bottom clockwise around to top of pulley) to tensioner (smooth, belt is backwards on it) which will go back up to the alternator.

At the top middle there should be a sensor protruding from the timing cover that the belt passes under as it connects between the alternator and the power steering. And you won't easily be able to fit anything besides a box-end wrench on the tensioner, so you may need some kind of extension on the wrench to get good torque on it without hurting yourself.

Some are actually spring loaded and others just have a slot that allows for adjustment. Either one of those types should be visibly different.
If the belt is not used for cam timing, the adjustment may be done with one of the accessory items such as AC compressor, the alternator or the power steering pump. In this case, the adjustable device will have one pivot bolt and another that goes through a slotted area to allow the device to 'swing' for adjustment.
The pivot bolt should be only a little loose so one can just barely move the adjustable device, while the adjustment bolt should be free while adjusting.  This may help not losing the adjustment after having set the belt tension correctly.
