    Well, that really didn't address my question, which was how do you replace the belt that drives the alternator. But thanks for your help, I've got it figured out.

  • mjgradolf Dec 12, 2009

    No, not really, the response didn't answer my question at all. I've figured it out myself so now I feel like an idiot for wasting both our time and my money!

    Determine which alternator your Toyota Camry needs. Be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Camry's engine. Models made from 1982 to 1986 have a 1.8 L or 2.0 L engine. Models built from 1987 to 1993 have a 1.8 L, 2.0 L or 2.5 L engine, and 1994 to 1998 models can be equipped with a 1.8 L, 2.0 L or 2.2 L engine.

  • Step 2
    Look at late models of the Toyota Camry. Models made from 1997 to 2001 can be equipped with a 2.2 L or 3.0 L engine, and 2002 to 2006 models can have a 2.4 L, 3.0 L or 3.3 L engine. The current generation of the Toyota Camry has been available since 2007 and is available with a 2.4 L or 3.5 L engine.

  • Step 3
    Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the air intake and engine cover, if needed. Remove the bolts from the accessory drive belt assembly and take it off of its pulley.

  • Step 4
    Remove the electrical harness from the alternator and unfasten the alternator's terminal nut with a socket wrench so that you can disconnect the terminal wire from the alternator.

  • Step 5
    Take the pivot and lock bolts off the alternator with a socket wrench. You also need to remove an adjusting bolt if you have a 3.5 L engine. Remove the engine mounting stay, if necessary. Remove the alternator assembly.

  • Step 6
    Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the removal procedure. Tighten the pivot bolt to 40 foot-lb. and the lock bolt to 14 foot-lb. with a torque wrench. If you have a 3.5 L engine, the adjusting bolt will use a self-adjusting tensioner. Torque the M8 bolt for the drive belt assembly to 15 foot-lb. and the M10 bolt to 38 foot-lb.

Broke timing belt

If the timing belt broke, your car won't run. Fortunately, it's not too expensive to replace, and as long as you are at it, may as well replace the water pump. Usually they have to dismount that in order to get at the timing belt. Generally that is that case, but it all depends on how each car is set up.

Hi, i have a 1996 camry 6 cyl last time timing belt changed 101000km right now the it's 209000km. what you suggest about timing belt i need to change right now or i can drive more km. and what happend if...

If you replace it now (my suggestion) it will be a simple, easy, and relatively cheap repair. If it breaks, you will potentially destroy your engine.

I suspect replacement today would be less than $100.00. If it breaks and you ruine your engine, I suspect the cost would exceed the value fo the car.

You decide.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil right side front of vehicle

More than likely it would be the front seals, oil pump front shaft seal and gasket ( "o" ring), Cam seal, crank seal one of those. Have to remove timing belt in order to change these seals. I would change out all the seals and put a new timing belt on it. Depending on how many miles you have on your car I would consider a water pump as well because the timing belt also needs to be removed to replace this part. In other words... Costly repair, but instead of replacing the seals and solving the leak and then 2 weeks later the timing belt snaps, then you just paid twice for the labor. Check oil pan gasket first b4 you spend money on seals.

Squealing noise

hmm, sounds like to me maybe a belt isn't tight enough or you got some anitfreeze on belt and it's slipping. make sure belts are tight, then if that's not working, try spraying some carb cleaner on the belts as the car runs.
