There should be a tension pullie that you put a wrench on and turn it and the pullie will kind of fold back on a spring so you can remove the belt

Ok, Alternators are a breeze on these things. There are two bolts that hold it on, and 2 sets of wires. If you haven't taken anything apart yet, and the belt is still on it, here's what to do. You will want one of those rubber or elastic bungee cords, about 2 and a half feet long(this makes it easy). Hook that bungee cord to your hood somewhere, so that it hangs down. Hook the other end on the serpentine belt right next to the alternator pulley. If you need to prop the hood up with a stick or something to keep it up, do so. Pull up on the belt, and watch the pulleys. The one that probably has a plastic pulley on it that moves up and down(this is the tensioner) is the one that you'll put a deep well socket in the middle of with a ratchet, and turn counterclockwise. This will make the belt go loose. Now you can work the belt off the alternator pulley, and once you get it off, the bungee cord will keep it in place, so you don't have to look at the diagram. Otherwise, if it comes off, there is a sticker just under the hood either on the fan shroud or the radiator support that has the belt diagram. Now, you can disconnect the battery, pull the rubber boot down off the nut and post on the back of the alternator, remove the nut and wire, and then unhook the wire from the side of the alternator. Now, you can remove the two bolts that hold the alternator on. You Will need to pry the alternator off at this point, as it fits really tightly in place. A socket extension or a large flat screwdriver works really well for this. Once you get it off, put the new one on exactly as you took the old one off. Note, you will have to release your tension on the tensioner at some point; i just ease it down, or if I can pull it off, wedge it somewhere where it won't loosen very far. Remember, on the tensioner, you're not trying to take the nut off. All you're doing is using it to move the tensioner arm. That's all there is to this job. Sometimes it can be stubborn with the prying part, especially getting it into place. Hope this is what you're after, and if you need more info, leave a comment for me.

Look at visor lights are they turning off? You need to do a parasitic draw test to isolate draw. without a meter testing draw its hard to locate source of draw. Dirty battery connections can also not let charge get to battery.

How to tighten the altanator belt on a 1983 chevy cavalier


It's alternator. Do you have a serpentine belt or seperate belt. If seperate, there are two bults on the alternator. Loosten both but do not remove. Take a prybar and pry back on alternator. Have someone hold the prybar while you tighten or hold yourself and tighten. If you have a serpentine belt, you need to replace the belt tensioner. The spring is weak inside the tensioner. It's 30 years old. remember that.

1997 chevy blazer,serpentine belt making noise. belt dressing doesn't seem to help,sometimes it makes the noise louder.and then after driving for a good while the noise stops.; it starts again whe i...


May be a worn belt or a pulley whose bearings are shot. Remove belt and check it for the ribs having broken down or missing parts of belt. While it's off, check all your pulleys for turning freely, alternator, tensioner pulley, a/c compressor, PS pulley...If you hear any noise when spinning them, or feel any movement like wobbling, or if they have a rough feel, then its likely that pulley needs replacing.

How do you remove the serpentine belt on a 1997 chevy blazer to install a new water pump?


As your standing in front of the car looking at the engine the serpentine belt tensioner is furthest to the left and in between the crank pulley and the alternator. You can use a 15mm wrench on the bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise.

I usually just use my left hand to push the tensioner in and remove/install the belt with my right hand.
