I need to replace the alternator belt on a 1994 Volvo 940T, but can't get the A/C belt off so I can remove the alternator belt. Apparently there's an adjustment bolt on the compressor that I...

Unscrew the idle pulley first.
Look for a small pulley where the a/c belt passes through. That is the idle pulley, the screw on the bracket of that idle is on the top side where you could adjust to loosen the tension of the belt. Before loosening it, loosen the bolt on the front of idle pulley.
Hope FixYa helps you out!

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan

Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

On my 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, The Serpentine belt has shreaded 4 times. The pulley has been replaced once but it still does the same thing. The Dealer cannot determine the cause.

Can you check , visually wether the belt is running in a smooth straight line. Check with the engine idling and also throttling up, see if it is moving from side to side. This would indicate that there is play at one of the pulleys. Also check each pulley belt surface for any abnormalities, marking etc.
hope this helps

How do you rerout the belt on a 1994 buick roadmaster estate wagon when not using a c pulley...The ac pulley and clutch has seized up.

You will need to get an idle pully, remove the air con. pump and fit the idle pully in its place. You may be able to reroute the belt but getting a belt to fit will be a problem.

Serpentine belt slips off idler pulley

The A/C pully is supposed to spin freely until the AC is activated to run.. The cranshaft pully does not. Replace the tensioner pully. The belt has to fit in between the grooves on the pullys.
