Need to know how to take the tension off alternator belt to change alternator


There is normally a spring loaded tension pulley that you can release tension on by using a ratchet or breaker bar placed in the square hole on the arm holding the pulley.

When an alternator belt is changed, would it be possible to overlook a faulty alternator, even after test driving it? Car konked 2 miles down road.


If you asked the shop to replace the belt, they would have done that and made sure the belt was on correctly.
If they did not know there was a problem with the alternator they would not have tested the output.
If the battery light was on before you had the belt replaced somebody should have said something about the alternator.
Otherwise no.

Changing alternator on 99 dodge ram truck 5.9L engine...anything I need to do before loosening the alternator bolts?


always take the negative battery terminal off to avoid shorting the charge wire. Next, remove the serpentine belt by twisting the tensioner loose. Then you can remove the alternator bolts. Let me know if you have more questions.

Need to change fan belt don't no how


one belt operation: loosen the alternator bracket bolt, and slider bolt. Push Alternator as far down as possible. Remove old belt (will come off over fan). If this is a serpentine, look at the belt layout to see how it is on. (belt route) - put new belt on; pull alternator tight and either pry with a hammer or other tool to hold tight while tightening, or have someone hold in place for you while tightening.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How to change a alternator on 98 honda accord v6, 3.0


Shut off engine and let it cool down. Remove the alternator bolts. This will loosen belt and allow you to remove alternator. Disconnect and label wires. Have a helper help you install new alternator while tightening belt. You need about 1/8 inch slack on the belt. You can purchase a belt tension tool to help you measure. Tighten alternator bolts and plug wires. Turn on engine and check that battery holding steady voltage.

1990 nissan 300zx nonturbo - change alternator belt how?


If you look at the front of the alternator, behind the belt, you'll see a curving grooved metal track - that's the adjuster track for the alternator. There's a bolt going through the groove into the alternator, which holds the alternator in place. You need to loosen that. I believe it's a 14mm bolt. You may also need to loosen a couple of the 12mm bolts that mount either the bracket or the alternator, to allow it to move. You'll probably find that it's easier to cut the old belt off (so it's out of the way) and then do the bolt work with a little more room to spare. Belt changes are always a pain on these cars - stick with it even if it takes awhile. If that doesn't get the alternator loose, loosen or remove other bolts on the alternator mount or on the track mount, and it will move eventually - not much, but it'll move. You may find that you can partially seat the belt on the alternator pulley, but can't get the belt fully onto the pulley. If that's the case, get it as far on as you can, and then put a 27mm socket on a long breaker bar, put the socket on the crank pulley bolt, and with the car in neutral, rotate the crank pulley by hand. This will pull the belt onto the alternator pulley.
