How do i remove a battery for a 98 jetta????


Disconnect the battery cable from your battery's negative terminal. Loosen the serpentine belt on your Mustang's engine by finding the "tensioner" pulley and pulling it upwards to release the tension on the belt. Slip the belt off your alternator, taking care not to also slip it off the any other pulley wheels. Use a wrench to remove the nut that secures two wires in place on the back of the alternator. Loosen the two alternator retaining bolts and remove the alternator once they are out.

My engine accessory belt came loose on a 98 buick lesabre with a 3800 engine. Can I loosen Alternator so it can slip back on?


There should be a TENSION PULLEY/ARM that accepts a large (3/4"?) wrench or cresent wrench. You rotate the pulley in the direction to loosen (its' tension) and get the belt back in place.
Sometime if the belt has ridden off the pulleys it will need to be replaced. Turn it so the "teeth" are on the outside and see if there are cracks in the rubber. Also look for wear marks on the pulleys or "rubber" that has come off the belt.

How do i change belt on mitubishi mirage 98


( BEFORE ADJUSTING THE ALTERNATOR BELT DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE OR YOU MIGHT BLOW AN EXPENSIVE HIDDEN FUSE)to change the alternator belt, you have to loosen the lower mount bolt on the alternator, loosen block shaped bolt that the long adjuster bolt goes through, and loosen the belt by turning the long adjuster bolt, take off the belt. to adjust the power steering belt, there is a long adjuster bolt that moves a tensioner pulley, first you have to loosen the nut that holds the pulley in place , now the pulley can be moved with the adjuster bolt.

98 dodge caravan alternator how to change


remove the negative battery cable from the battery. loosen the serpentine belt by using an open-end box wrench and pull the tension pulley back (it's spring loaded, so be careful) by the bolt, remove the belt from the alternator and the tension pulley, then slowly let the tension pulley loose. remove the nuts holding the wires on to the alternator. remove the bolts from the alternator mount, and remove the alternator. put the new one on and hand tighten all of the bolts. then tighten them down with a wrench. put the belt back on the alternator pulley and make sure it's on all of the other pulleys and wheels except the tension. use the wrench again and pull the pulley towards you with your right hand and put the belt under the pulley with your left, and let the pulley go back. reconnect the wires to the alternator and then the battery. **warning** make sure that the battery is fully charged before you start the car with the new alternator, or you'll cause "alternator death" and void your warranty.

Replacing the alternater on my 98 chevy cavalier 2.2 need a diagram of where the tension screw is to loosen up the serpantene belt


It is a pulley, and it pivots in ( or out in some models) to loosen belt, you may need a special wrench. You can ID the belt tensioner assy. by watching the belt when the engine is running, it is the one that moves quickly in and out as it holds tension on the belt.
