Do you mean the timing belt or the serpentine drive belt that does your alternator, aircon pulley etc. If it is the timing belt then you have big trouble because it almost always results in engine damage. If its the second then its taken several parts with it and you need a knowledgeable person to assess the damage. Do not attempt to turn the engine over again until a full check is done. Go to bing or google images, type in your vehicle model, year etc and timing belt and see what pics pop up. It may give you some idea.

How difficult is it to replace an alternator on a 2002 hyndai accent


Here's an illustration: Disconnect negative battery cable. remove radiator fan (next to alternator). Loosen upper alternator tension bolts & tilt/move toward engine to give slack to the drive belt. Remove drive belt & then remove lower alt mounting bolt & top tension/mounting bracket bolt. Disconnect alternator wiring/connections. Lift alternator out. Assembly is in reverse order of removal.

I think the alternator in my 1997 GMC Jimmy is bad, what should I do? I had the battery tested and was told it was good. The battery light stays on and the radio flickers on and off, and the battery gauge...


You need a new alternator most likely. They are pricey for this vehicle. For installation instructions.....Remove belt by placing a 1/2" rachet into hole on belt tensioner and release pressure on belt. Remove belt. Depending on the vehicle you may have to remove the belt tensioner assembly itself to access the alternator. Remove all wiring harness connectors to alternator, The main power lead is a 10mm nut. Remove all mounting bolts to alternator. Remove alternator. Reinstall new alternator reversing steps taken above.

I'm replacing the altennatior how dose it come


Before you do anything, take careful note of the drive belt tension because you are going to have to adjust the belt back to that approximate tension when you replace the alternator.
Next, detach the negative battery terminal (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the activation code because when you hook the battery back up your radio will just say “code” and wait for you to put in the five-digit code. You should have gotten it with but not in the manual).
Important: mark and detach the electrical connector and any ground straps from the alternator.
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt (the one that the alternator pivots on as it is tightened against the drive belt).
Loosen the adjusting bolt (the one that tightens the alternator against the drive belt).
Remove the adjusting bolt and the pivot bolt, then detach the drive belt (push it off the pulley when you can move the alternator).
Important note: you will have to remove the bracket bolt located next to the adjustment bolt and the mounting bolt located lower and at a 90 degree angle, in order to remove the adjustment bolt and assembly.
Installation is the reverse, but if you are replacing the alternator, make sure the one you get has a pulley on it (or take the one you have the have the seller switch them), and make sure you get the same alternator (size and terminal location) that you have.
Hope this helps you.

97 Lexus Es300 noise under the hood by alternator


mcdevito75 here, If you have 1 continuous belt on the engine (serpentine) then the belt could be worn or the tension pully holding the belt tight could be going bad. No noise in Neautral or Park as increased engine speed in these gears over rides the worn part and thus no noise. On a cold engine examine the belt, look for frays / wear from where the belt rides the pullys. If the belt is 2 years old, Change it.
