It is probably your tensioner or idler pulley worn out. Check and see if pulleys are worn and replace

Replace the alternator in a 2007 jeep compass limited


First..,Get new part and also a new belt if belt has never been changed..Make sure part is correct,Use safety glasses..Be sure engine is cold..,Notice sticker under hood that shows belt routing diagram..If there isn't a sticker you can hand draw your own..Disconnect battery ground cable..Remove serpentine belt..If you have never replaced a serpentine belt it will get you confused but it is VERY EASY..It should have a diagram of how it is removed on the sticker showing the belt..The salesman at the parts store can show you easier than I can tell you..After removing belt ..,inspect all pulleys for tightness or any type of wobble..Look for any small shines of metal fragments around pulleys..Spin pulleys to make sure they don't have a worn bearing noise and they spin freely......If one seems damaged now is the time to replace it...remove wiring from alternator carefully..Remove alternator mounting bolts..Use a small pry bar or large flat screwdriver to pry the alternator carefully at both sides upward to remove it..It has a small bushing inside of the lower mounting holes which slides in and out to help keep alternator in position.The old alternator is to be turned in to parts store for a core credit so try not to damage it....Lube mounting holes of new alternator so it will slide into place smoothly..Install bolts and get them all hand tight then snug each bolt lightly until they are all seated then torque each bolt..Torque tight but DONT OVER TIGHTEN..It should be no more than 40lbs.torque..carefully connect alternator wiring..Install new belt..Doublecheck everything..,remove all tools from under hood..Coonect battery and start engine for safety check...

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    What's your problem?1995 gmc safari alternator replacement. Need some kind of diagramed overview of the alternator and how it connects, what it looks like, how to do it basically


    Hello! First see Serpentine Belt configuration diagram below... Alternator is part "C"...

    If you have a voltmeter...read across the battery with engine off...Record...Start engine read again...Voltage must be 1.8 -2 volts higher; This means Alternator is working...

    To Remove:disconnect (-) battery cable...Air Inlet Duct...Serpentine Belt (idler pulley maintains tension)...Heater hose brace...Wiring from Alternator...Mounting bolts...Remove alternator...

    To Install: Install Alternator loosely...Tighten Rear Bolt to 37 ft. lbs...Front bolt to 18ft. lbsTighten Brace to Intake to 18ft lbs....Connect wiring...Install belt...Adjust Idler Pulley so belt moves less than 3/4" when tight...Connect (-) battery cable....Re-test as noted above...Guru...........Saaile

    Failing to charge battrey


    Are the cables connected to the battery good? No corrosion, must be clean.......is the belt tight on the alternator? If its a serpentine belt it's tight, if it's a V-type belt, pull on the cooling fins of the alternator to see if it will spin, if it does the belt is loose. If you have a multimeter, check the voltage at the battery when the engine is running, should be at 13-14 volts........if not, alternator is not charging and need to be replaced.

    The serpentine belt was recently replaced at an automotive service center. Now the belt or pulley sqeaks at idle and gets louder under acceleration. What could be causing this?


    COULD BE BAD BELT OR THE TENSIONER IS BAD AND NOT HOLDING THE BELT TIGHT ENOUGH THEY SHOULD HAVE SEEN THAT WHEN THEY DID THE BELT I WOULD RETURN IT TO THEM AND HAVE THEM RECHECK IT

    The new alternator you bought must have been the dud one. See the rating on the former before replacing. if belt is too tight there will be a sharp schwaking noise.

    1997 nissan sentra serpentine belt


    The serpentine belt has nothing to do with the brakes. It does have something to do with the alternator which charges the battery. the burning smell is probably the result of wasted grooves on the underside of the belt. it is the belt you see just inside the car engine compartment that turns the AC unit compressor pully , the alternator, etc.it is connected to the crankshaft pully.. If you have a front wheel drive it is located on the side of the engine compartment.
