Question about 2000 Mazda MPV
Belt replacement diagram
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked'' all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys.
Although belt routing diagrams have been included in this section, the first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.

It is not a very difficult task, but one that would be better left to a professional for a couple of reasons. First, the system should be tested to be sure this is going to fix your problem. Many times a bad battery is the demon. Second, you will get a warranty with that repair if you have it done at a reputable garage/dealership. Just a couple of things to think about.
