To loosen the belt look for a pulley that isn't running anything. That is your tension pulley and somewhere either in the center of the pulley or arm the pulley is bolted to there will be a square hole that is the same size as a 1/2" drive socket. Find your 1/2" socket and put it in that hole and either in tightening or loosening position you should be able to move the pulley so the tension on the belt loosens up so you can take it off the pulley. then remove the bolts of the alternator and the wire plug and you got it whipped.

There is a tensioner pulley that has a square in the center for either a 3/8 or 1/2 inch drive ratchet put the ratchet in the appropriate square and push up towards the trunkthe tensioner will move and the belt will get loose allowing you to remove it. The alternator I think has 3-4 bolts and may have an idler pulley on it.

You need to loosen the alternator so the belts become slack. Look for bolts on top and bottom that attach the alternator to a bracket or the engine block. Loosen them and the alternator will move. Since the belts hook to other accessories, you may need to loosen them too. To get them back and the proper tension, you'll need a large screwdriver or pry bar to put tension on them as you tighten the bolts. I suggest you get a Haynes guide for this model that will have photos showing how this is done.

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.

SOURCE: how to remove the a/c drivebelt in 94 suzuki sidekick

Hi megora,

I recently replaced the belts on my 94 Suzuki Escudo. From memory you are right about the alt belt coming of second. I think the other belt runs the power steering and the air con. If you stand in front of the radiator/bumper looking at the firewall ( ie rearwards) and look down behind the rad you will see the two belts. The one on the right is the first to take off for the steering and air con. The top pulley/pump/compressor assembly on the right will move to allow the belt to come off once the adjuster bolts (2) and pivot/mounting bolts (2) are loosened. A 12 mm ring spanner should be suitable for this I think. I remember finding it quite difficult to get into the pivot bolts as they are directly below the pump/compressor so some patience may be required as you try and work past the air filter, steering reservoir and all the other stuff in that right front corner. Make sure you have loosened everything before trying to crank it all over to slacken the belt off. Once this is done the alt belt can be done. I hope this makes sense as sometimes similar vehicles can have different builds and upfits. By the way if anything doesn't seem right stop, look and think about what's connected to what. I would hate to think that any information I gave you turned out to lead you astray. Regards, Brad

How to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13



ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

Replace alternator belt


To replace the alternator belt, you must first remove the Power Steering/Air Conditioner belt. The tensioner for this belt is on the left side of the engine (when viewing from the transmission end). Loosen the tensioner pulley center bolt and then loosen the adjusting bolt. Then the alternator bolts must be loosened and the adjusting bolt for the alternator must be loosened.
Reverse procedure after installing new belt/belts.

Suggest replacing all the belts also. 1st belt, remove coolant reservoir. Loosen the pulley next to the res. then there is a tension bolt behind it. get under the car, the alternator is right there on the passenger side. possible under a small shield. Loosen all the bolts on the alternator, then there is a tentioner on the alternator. Loosen that, remove belt, then take out the rest of the bolts, along with the plug and the ground wire to the alternator. for the P/S belt, loosen the other pulley 14mm, and then the tention bolt is another 12mm.
