To release the tension belt, use a breaker bar and socket or long long wrench. the pulley will pull up or push down in order to put belt on. Alt must be completely installed first.

HOW TO ALT BELT 94 GEO??


7aFE or 4AFE engine.
old post, if you cant figure that out. then post vin, post photo of it.
my guess is it is a V belt, be nice to all that.
and you did say ALT and ALT tilts.
the alt has pivot on the bottom, and the top has built in
belt tension adjuster there,
one gets all that loose, and use it to set tension on the belt
about 10lbs force mid span on belt and 1/2" deflection
almost all V bets set like this for 100 years, even a tin lizzy.

Belt broke that drives the water pump and alternator on my 88 plymouth reliant. another belt in the way, and cant figure out how to get the new belt on.


You can loosen the alternator that should releive the tension on the belt.
When you tighten it again make sure you can only turn the belt 90 degrees then you know you have the right tension.

Alternator belt fell off


You may have to buy a new belt because that one may have stretches. After you buy a new belt. Look at he alternator, it has two screws, one hold it in place and the other allow it ti move. Lose both a little. With a pry bar push the alternator so the belt can fit. Look for the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment. Follow it and put the belt on. You were suppose to have a belt tension tool to determine the tension. Then use your pry bar to move the alternator to position and tension then tightened alternator screws.

Replacing the alternator belt on 2001 kia spectra


Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.
