Change alternator belt in a mazda mx-3

If your engine are the 1,6 l , it is the same engine as my MX5 91.
You have to remove power steering belt first if you have one. Loosen the mounting bolt located behind the pump pulley, then loosen the tensioner bracket bolts( one on the engine bracket and one in front of the adjusting bolt). After unscrew the adjusting bolt and push down the pump. Remove the belt.
Now, it is the alternator. Loosen the mounting bolt located under the alternator, then loosen the tensioner bracket, but only the only in front of the adjusting bolt. Unscrew the adjusting bolt and pull up the alternator and remove the belt.
When you tightening the new belt, the belt should be able to make a 1/4 turn, to make sure it is not to tight.

A belt snapped, leaked antifreeze and no power steering

If it was the timing belt, the car would have quit right then and there.
It's the belt that drives the fan, water pump and power steering.
Probably what they call the serpintine belt.

Changing a timing belt

If you are going to try changing it yourself you are going to need a repair manual. Owners manual do not have this kind of information in them. You must follow the repair procedure exactly or you can damage your engine. To check the belt you must remove the front engine covers. Mazda recommends to inspect the belt at 60,000 and replace at 105,000.

2000 626 2l tdi sedan limited edition belts

1. check they are not too tight. you should be able to push finger into longest free length of belt by about 1 cm.

2. check belt is not too loose as can overheat and break off.

3. check no grease or oil on belt pulleys. belt can slip and overheat and break

4. turn on engine when you install belt check to see that all pulleys attached to the belt turns. if one of the pulleys is seized and wont' turn properly, can overheat belt.

5. check pulley surface for cracks. must be smooth.

6. finally are your belts the correct width?
