Why does belt to alternator keep skeaking + snapping?


Bad bearings can usually be detected simply by turning the unloaded pulley (wheel). They feel sort of gritty compared to a good bearing. The squealing and snapping is a concern, however. My best guess would be a belt tensioning issue. Squealing is usually caused by belt slippage due to an unusually loose belt. This leads to belt damage and eventually, breakage. Of course a bad idler pulley bearing or other defective component (A/C, P/S, Alt) can cause the same results.

I have issues with belt squealing on Suzuki swift. The car is a 2005 (new model) 1.3 petrol. Just before christmas the original 9 year old belt, I replaced the belt and squealing persisted, a week lat


if this has an automatic belt tensioner on it this sounds like the tensioner is weak and needs replacing. a weak or bad tensioner does and can cause belt squealing and can throw the belt alignment off causing your problem.

I believe it's my alternator belt that is squealing. It does this when cold and when I tax the alt. ie: turn everything on. like rear defrost,headlights,heater fan. after the squealing stops you can hear a...


Check belt tensioner adjustment. Spray WD 40 on belts and pulleys and start. If no fix .it is most likely the rear bearings on the alt. before you buy a new one shoot some WD in the rear of the alt through the slits to the shaft. No fix take it to your local chain parts store and they will check it for free.

How do I change the battery on a 1994 volvo 850


Don't know about the layout of the Volvo belts; however, there are basically two ways to release and restore tension on belts.

The old way involved components that could be moved in and out to allow the new belt to be put in place and then have tension restored to the belt. A bolt in an elongated hole allowed this movement. The component that could be moved could be the alternator or power steering pump. The sequence was: loosen the bolt, move the component, install the new belt, move the component back till the belt is tensioned, and tighten the bolt.

The new system involves a tensioner that holds the belt in position. These tensioners can be moved in one direction to allow the new belt to be installed. After the belt is in place, the tensioner is released and it moves back to a position where it keeps the proper tension on the belt.
