Question about 2003 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

Need to replace the alternator/ac belt

This highlander has the 3 liter V6, the belt runs around the crank pulley, A/C pully and the alternator pulley. It looks like the alternator has to be manually adjusted but it is very hard to reach.

    Sometimes I wonder what was going through the engineers head when they design the engine compartment.

Ac, altenator & crank pully alignment


The crank pulley is a 2 piece part, the outer pulley "ring" is insulated from the inner pulley by a special sandwiched rubber ring. The outer pulley on may "walk" off the inner pulley due to engine vibration, this is most common on 4 cylinder engines. The crank pulley is the only pulley that can do this.

You should have a belt routing decal in the engine bay somewhere or under the hood. If the belts are on now and lined up, adjust as needed. If they won't adjust anymore replace with 1 inch shorter belts. The power steering and the air pump usually take seperate belts. The air pump don't take much to power, they usually run off the third groove on the water pump. A/C, Alt. and PS will all run around the crank. Hope this helps some, if not you might could find a Haynes repair manual at the parts store.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

Where is the tensioner pully located on a 97 chevy cavalier?


If it is a V6 the tensioner is located on the left side of engine when looking at it, between the crank pulley and the ac and alternator. If you look at the belt and follow it around you will see the tensioner which normally has the smallest pulley on it. There should also be a belt routing diagram on the fender or by radiator, this too shows the location of the tensioner.

Diagram of pullies and belts on 86 toyota mr2


If you are talking the a/c pulley and alternator pulley, I am pretty sure the belts are different sizes (different number of ribs in the belt). So, you can just look carefully at the ribs and put the right belt on the right pully. from memory, the A/C belt goes on first and all the pullies towards the front of the car are used for that belt. The Alternator belt goes on next, and all the pullies from the crank shaft toward the back of the car (from the crank pulley) go to that. I could have those reversed, but the ribs on the belt will show you for sure. have fun!

I'd be more inclined to check that idler pulleys and alternator bearings are okay before looking at crank pulley. Take off the belt and give them a good wiggle and spin.

Crankshaft pulley slows down when a/c engaged.


It is the harmonic balancer, ie. pulley. It is a two piece--with rubber between the two. It will, especially if belt dressing or other lubricant has penetrated it, slip. I just ordered a new one online for $70. It is a fairly common problem.
