There is a belt tensioner that is spring loaded that has to be pulled up in order to install your belt.

Put the alt etc back. You need a long ratchet 1/2 drive to pull all the tension off the tension pulley assy and hold it there while you put the belt on. Please wear arm protector sleeves or a sweat shirt because things are a tight fit and sharp. It is a nasty job that should be easy and years ago on cars was

Hi,
If this belt serves all the rotating components, I would imagine you have a spring-loaded tensioner.
This is actually the item you would need to pry back, in order to remove and install a belt. Your user's manual may assist you on the belt routing, and you may also have a picture diagram in your engine compartment.
Hope this is accurate and helps you... Good luck!

I have what sounds like a squeaky bearing sound at any speed. Varies with RPM. Looking for likely culprits.


you're on the right track, removing the serpentine belt and manually rotating/ spinning the pulleys listening for a dragging, or grinding. If its very bad you may even see a outward movement. hope this helps!

Replace alternator belt


  • 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.

    Just got alternater replaced a couple of months ago and its starting to squeel again like last time and the battery light keeps flickering on and off


    The alternator drive belt is loose or worn out. If the alternator is driven off a serpentine belt then replace the belt. Inspect the serpentine belt tensioner and replace if necessary. On an 18 year old car it is more than likely defective. If it is driven off a standard drive belt then adjust the alternator to tighten the belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and or cracks and replace if you see any.

    Replacing serpentine belt on 1991 mustang 5.0 I changed the alternator but i can't get the belt back on.


    Are you using the old belt or a new one? Just make sure the belt is the right one. There is only one right way to route the belt. There should be a diagram of the belt routing on the fan shroud or hood. If you can't find it, I've had some luck doing an internet search for the right routing diagram.

    How do you replace a serpentine belt on a mazda 626


    A 626 has two belts. One drives the power steering and water pump (rear belt in 6 cyl) and other front belt drives the a/c and alternator. On the 4 cyl, the front belt drives the power steering and the a/c, and the rear belt drives the water pump and the alternator. All of these are easy to change.

    Serpentine belt


    This procedure is for anybody who has has trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

    • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
    • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
    • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
    • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
    • Slowly release the tension.
    • You're done
