Your vehicle has a belt tensioner that by using either a 1/2" drive ratchet or a wrench for the bolt on the pulley. Roll the tensioner up and slip the belt off the pulley. be aware of the belt routing and draw yourself a pic of the route. You should have a diagram of the belt route on the radiator support. Just make sure it is there.

Replacing alternator belt on 2007 1.3 cdti combo is it easy to do


Loosen alternator, push it towards the block until belt is loose. Pull the belt off and replace. Once the new belt is on push the alternator away from the block until belt is tight and tighten bolt/bolts. You might need a bar to keep tension on the alternator while tightening bolt/bolts.

Help changing alternator on 1998 honda civic. how do you remove the belt or is there a belt?


The alternator has a bolt that is adjustable to keep tension on the belt. There should be a single bolt that is fixed, and probably another that sits in a slot in the bracket that allows adjustment. You'll loosen the bolt in the bracket slot and give the belt some slack, and it should come off the pulley. When replacing, you may have to have someone help pull the alternator so it puts tension on the belt, and then you can tighten it down. I have seen some vehicles that have a bolt that will turn in or out to either tighten the alternator or loosen it.

Cant get the serpentine belt back on,it is just a little bit too tight to get the belt on, can't I just use a screwdriver to pry on the edge of the belt first? Thanks for your help.


No, don't use the screwdriver....usually one of the pulleys is adjustable. Most of the time it's the alternator. Loosen the alternator bolts slightly so you can rotate the body of the alternator to loosen the belt, then rotate to tighten the belt then tighten the alternator bolts.

Dont know how to loosen or tighten the belt im trying to put on my car. the belt is connecting the alternator to the waterpump


You need to loosen the bolts that attach the alternator to the engine. Just loosen then a turn or so, don't remove them. Then there should be a long 10 or 12mm bolt attached to a bracket being held by one of those bolts attaching the alternator. One direction loosens while the other tightens the belt. When it is where you want it, retighten the alternator bolts and test.

How to change the power steering belt on a 2004 mitsubishi galant


The power steering belt is on the front of the motor and is driven by the crankshaft. Below the steering pump is an adjuster bolt. It moves a pulley underneath the pump. To adjust the belt tension located the nut that tightens the adjuster pulley the the pump bracket . It is on the right side of the bracket , the pulley is on the left facing the back of the car. Loosen the pulley mount nut . You can now turn the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to tighten and loosen the belt for replacement. I recommend replacing the alternator belt at the same time. To do this , Unhook the negative battery cable, loosen the bolt holding block to the slide arm, reach under the alternator and loosen the lower mount bolt, not you can adjust the position of the alternator using the adjuster bolt.

I have a 1991 dodge colt vista 2.0 l engine, and need to know where to get info on replacing ( how to or what to do ) the alternator belt. thanks


There is a curved bracket that the alternator is bolted to. This allows you to adjust the belt tension. Loosen this bolt and locate the other bolt that mounts the alternator to your engine. Loosen this one, as well. Now swing your alternator in the direction that will allow you to free the belt and remove it. Put the new belt on and swing the alternator to get good tension on the belt. Tighten both of the bolts on the alternator, but leave them loose enough that you can still adjust the belt's tension. Now use a bar to pry the alternator in the direction that will increase the tension on the belt a little bit and tighten the bolt on the curved bracket with your free hand. Now, tighten the other bolt. Start the car and verify that the belt has decent tension and does not slip (this will cause premature wear, squealing and bad charging). If everything is good, you should be all set. If it is too tight or too loose, you will need to readjust the tension of the belt.

Hope this helps,
matt
