How do I locate the tensioner for the alternator belt on a 2003 kia spectra?


I wondered the same thing and looked for days on end. To my surprise, there is no tension pulley for the 2003 Kia Spectra. The Kia 4 cyl has two (2) belts. The outside belt services the power steering and air conditioning. The inside belt (the one you want to service) services the alternator and water pump. The alternator tension is set by two (2) adjustment screws located on the alternator. One screw is used as a locking bolt and the upper bolt is used as the adjuster. You must first loosen the locking bolt which is located between the belt and the alternator housing. Loosen about 6 to 8 travels of the wrench (size 13mm), then tighten the upper bolt until you have no more than 1/2 inch of movement in the belt when you press down. After the correct tension is achieved, tighten the locking bolt and your done. As long as you're down there, you might as well check the outer belt as well. Same principle, one locking and one adjuster. Good Luck, Fred

One of the belts on the alternator broke and it through my car out of time


If your car is out of time, the timing belt probably broke. The alternator belt runs the alternator only which would eventually cause the battery to die but will have no effect on the timing.

Serpentine belt broke and i think the water pump is bad


The battery light and brake light are on because the belt isn't turning the alternator. The house with columns means it is low on antifreeze. You need to put the belt back on an check for antifreeze leaks. I would say you waterpump likely locked up and roasted the belt and that is where the antifreeze is leaking also.

Upper radiator housing broke off


you can get a replacement at minimal cost at auto parts store like Napa or Oreillys. it is called the thermostat cover/housing. if you have broken bolts and there should be 2 of them you will have to remove them with a tool called easy outs. and replace the bolts.
