Can't figure out how to replace the altenator belt on a 94 prizm, don't see a tention pulley. What am I doing wrong?

see belt. see what it lands on.? ALT and x ,y, z.?
one of the lands on, devices, has a pivot adjustment.
some , cars that is the alternator pivot.
some cars the top bolt on alternator bracket is the adjustment.
vast numbers of cars have no spring tension-er, as they like to fail.
on some cars, made by suzuki the devices that does the pivot tension
varies by if you have A/C or not,
on mine the P/S adjusts tension.
but can be, P/S A/C or alt one of them (if related) is the device.
just one glance tells you, who shares this belt, and 2, does it have 3 point pivot mounts.
on mine the P/S pulley has large holes, and the adjust bolt is via this hole. ticky, just look with a flash light.

This is yet another question about my 1999 mazda protege, I replaced the battery and altenator but the battery light still came on after just a few short rides in the car, what else could be wrong????

Check the wiring to the alternator for signs of overheated connectors, replace as needed and don't use crimp connectors solder all wiries and shrink tube them to insuklate the solder joints.

The alternator has 3 wires. 1 to battery, 1 to ground,1 to selenoid. (maybe more depending on car) A commom mistake is to switch the selenoid and battery wires. wires. Try switching them even though it might not seem right. My old mustang said "B" on alternator so i put that to the battery. I was wrong. cost me 85 bucks for them to just switch a wire. So maybe try switching em.

I would suspect the altenator, A/C pulley, or the belt. when you checked the altenator and a/c they have to turn smoothly with no play or roughness. If these checked out fine then I would check the belt, they do stretch.

How to tighten altenator belt on a 95 dodge neon . I see no way of getting my hands in there to do it.

You cannot tighten the belt. It is the Tension arm/pulley's job to do so. If the belt is loose, then it either means the belt needs to be replaced, its the wrong belt, its routed wrong, or the tension pulley/arm is bad.

Problem with Altenator belts Etude

the problem is not the altenator. you should have a idler pully and a self adjusting idler tensioner. if thes e go bad the bearings tend to seize up and break belts i would check these first chance you get the tensioner should be spring like and be hard to move back and forth the pulley part of it should spin freely with out makeing a noise. please rate this
