Which engine do you have 2.2 Ltr or the 4.3 V6 ?
Is this belt a flat belt with rigdes in it (serpentine) ?
If so you will need a special tool that you will use to pry back the tensioner pulley.
Please let me know.

When replacing the alternator belt on a 1999 mazda protege how many pullys does it go around. cause i dont know if this belt is to long


There are 2 belts. One goes around the Crankshaft. the Power Steering Pump and the Air Conditioner Compressor (if equipped) and the other belt goes around the Crankshaft, The Alternator and the Water Pump. You can have your local parts supplier verify that you have the correct belt for the vehicle by calling them and giving them the number on the belt. Also make sure that you are installing the belt in the correct position. i.e. putting the alternator belt on the alternator and not on the power steering, etc.

Diagram of pullies and belts on 86 toyota mr2


If you are talking the a/c pulley and alternator pulley, I am pretty sure the belts are different sizes (different number of ribs in the belt). So, you can just look carefully at the ribs and put the right belt on the right pully. from memory, the A/C belt goes on first and all the pullies towards the front of the car are used for that belt. The Alternator belt goes on next, and all the pullies from the crank shaft toward the back of the car (from the crank pulley) go to that. I could have those reversed, but the ribs on the belt will show you for sure. have fun!

How do I replace an alternator on a 2000 VW Passat 1.8T. How hard is it to replace?


it isnt that hard actually

disconect positive battery terminal. and feel the tension on the laternator belt. you will need to bring it back to this tension.

1.) loosen bolts holding alternator in place (LOOK AT THE BELT TO REMEMBER HOW IT GOES, BEST NOT REMOVE THE BELT.)

2.) loosen bolts holding wires to alternator and connect wires to new alternator

3.) Place alternator in engine, replace bolts but dont tighten

4.) put belt in place, it will be slack, use your tire iron or a piece of pipe or wood to pry the alternator back, to bring tension on the belt. You pry the alternator to pull the belt as TIGHT AS POSSIBLE. while holding strain, on it, tighten the bolts.

We need to replace an alternator belt on a 2001 saturn sl2 series


YOU MEAN THE CERPENTINE BELT?? IT ONLY HAS ONE I BELIEVE. BELOW THE TOP FRONT ENGINE MOUNT THERES A BELT TENSIONER PUT A WRENCH ON THE CENTER BOLT AND TURN IT TO LOOSEN THE BELT, (INSTALATION) TURN THE TENSIONER TO PUT THE BELT BACK ON. AND IF YOU FORGOT THE WAY THE BELT GOES BACK ON, CHECK THE DECAL BY THE RADIATOR AND YOULL SEE THE PICTURE HOW IT GOES.

Istallation and removal of alternator.


There are usually two mounting bolts on an alternator. One of them is long and goes through into the engine block. The other one is usually a short bolt the goes into a tensioning bracket that helps you tighten the belt. Disconnect the positive battery cable before you begin work. If you don't do this you could short out the electrical system while working and cause some damage. Loosen the bolts a little and by pushing sideways you can loosen the alternator belt enough to remove it. Inspect it for cracks and replace if necessary. Remove the wire connectors from the back of the alternator. Remove the bolts from the alternator, short one first. Reverse this process to install the new alternator. When the wires are reconnected and the bolts inserted put the fan belt back on and find something to pry on the alternator with to tension the fan belt till it's tight. Tighten the bolts, reattach battery cable and you're done.
