Hi!!

Here is a diagrm of the belt routing for your vehicle (according to your info). For what I can see, both, the V-Belt and the Serpentine Belt are tensioned by the Compressor and the Alternator respectively.

If the belt you want to replace is the Serpentine belt, you got to loosen the Alternator tensioer in order to remove the belt.

Good Luck!!

    I know I have to loosen the alt. tensioner. What I am saying is HOW. There is a bolt just above the oil filter, attached to the underside of the tensioner. If you turn the bolt clockwise or counter clockwise, it does not change the tension of the belt. How do you loosen, is there another bolt somewhere?

  • Rene J Solis Jul 30, 2010



    This is a picture of the tensionner pulley for your vehicle, in order to release the belt all you have to do is insert a 1/2" RACHET OR BREAKER BAR IN THE SQUARED ORIFICE OF THE TENSIONER (UPPER LEFT CORNER OF THE PICTURE) AND TURN CLOCKWISE, REMOVE BELT AND RELEASE TENSIONER SLOWLY.

    Disgregar loosing Alt. Bolts, I had wrong diagram. Good Luck

  • tammyossa Jul 30, 2010

    That is not the same tensioner. I think I know. Going back to your first answer. When I loosen the alt. It will rotate to allow the tension to release. It seems as if the tensioner is not really a tensioner, just a wheel that creates tension against the alt.

  • Rene J Solis Jul 30, 2010

    It seems that your vehicle comes both ways, if the first diagram is correct, loosen the bolt for the "tensioner" and also have to loosen the other one or two bolts holding the alternator, once loose, push the Alt. inwards, towards the engine to release pressure on the belt.

How to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13



ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

0900c15280197020.jpgenlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gifFig. Proper pulley alignment for timing belt installation at TDC-Hyundai 1.5L SOHC engines
  1. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
  2. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolts lightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
  3. Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
  4. Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
  5. Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
    NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
  6. Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works,without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
  7. Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
    NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
  8. Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
  9. Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
  10. Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side ofthe tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
  11. Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.

Locating tdc on ford ranger 2001 2.5 4cyl


Here are the instructions to replace the belt which are ones the same as the 2.3 earlier engine.
Getting Started
  • Remove the radiator shroud and loosen the water pump pulley bolts. Remove the accessory drive belts. Remove the water pump pulley bolts. Remove the water pump pulley and the radiator cooling fan. Drain and recover the Freon from the air-conditioning system. Remove the air-conditioning compressor.
    Remove the power steering pump but leave the lines attached and move aside. Remove the air conditioning bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and the pulley using the wheel puller. Remove the timing belt cover.
Align Crankshaft and Block
  • Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the keyway on the crankshaft sprocket is straight up and the dot to the right side of it is lined up with the corresponding mark on the block. Check that the triangle mark on the camshaft sprocket lines up with the same type mark on the block at the 5 o'clock position. If not then turn the crankshaft one more time and it will align.
Loosen Tensioner
  • Loosen the large bolt on the top of the tensioner and then loosen the bolt closest to the tensioner pulley. Use the special ford tool and turn the tensioner clockwise to take the tension off of the timing belt and tighten the adjusting bolt lightly to hold it out of your way. Remove the timing belt.
Work Counterclockwise
  • Install the new timing belt starting on the right side and work counterclockwise. The circle on the crankshaft sprocket and the diamond marks on the oil pump and the triangle marks on the camshaft sprocket should always stay lined up. Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tensioner and rotate the engine two turns clockwise and realign the timing marks. Tighten the tensioner-adjusting bolt next to the tensioner pulley and then pivot bolt. Install the rest of the components in the reverse order that they were removed and tighten the crankshaft bolt to 121 foot-pounds of torque.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 car. What steps I am suppose to do.


    First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

    To install:

    CAUTION Before installing the timing belt, confirm that the No. 1 cylinder is set at the TDC of the compression stroke.
    1. Remove both cylinder head covers and loosen all rocker arm shaft retaining bolts.
    The rocker arm shaft bolts MUST be loosened so that the correct belt tension can be obtained.
    1. Install the tensioner and the return spring. Using a hexagon wrench, turn the tensioner clockwise and temporarily tighten the lock-nut.
    2. Make sure that the timing belt is clean and free from oil or water.
    When installing the timing belt align the white lines on the belt with the punchmarks on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. Have the arrow on the timing belt pointing toward the front belt covers.

    A good way (although rather tedious!) to check for proper timing belt installation is to count the number of belt teeth between the timing marks. There are 133 teeth on the belt; there should be 40 teeth between the timing marks on the left and right side camshaft sprockets, and 43 teeth between the timing marks on the left side camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket.

    1. 1986-87 Engines:
      1. Using a hexagon wrench, loosen the tensioner lock bolt, set the tensioner and then slowly turn the tensioner clockwise and counterclockwise 2-3 times.If the coarse tensioner stud has been removed, be sure to apply locking sealer to the threads before installing it.
      2. Tighten the tensioner lock-nut to 32-43 ft. lbs. (43-58 Nm). Tighten the rocker arm shaft retaining bolts (in 2-3 stages) to 13-16 ft. lbs. (18-22 Nm).Before tightening, be sure to set the camshaft lobe at the position where the lobe is not lifted.
      3. Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.

    2. 1988 Engines:
      1. While keeping the tensioner steady, loosen the lock-nut with a hexagon wrench.
      2. Turn the tension approximately 70-80 degrees clockwise with the wrench and then tighten the lock-nut.
      3. Turn the crankshaft in a clockwise direction several times and then slowly set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.
      4. Apply 22 lbs. of pressure (push it in!) to the center span of the timing belt between the right side camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley and then loosen the tensioner lock-nut.
      5. Using a 0.0138 in. (0.35mm) feeler gauge (the actual width of the blade must be 1 / 2 in. thick!) positioned as shown in the illustration, turn the crankshaft clockwise ( slowly! ). The timing belt should move approximately 2 1 / 2 teeth. Tighten the tensioner lock-nut, turn the crankshaft slightly and remove the feeler gauge.
      6. Slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise several more times and then set the No. 1 piston to TDC of the compression stroke.
      7. Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.

    Changing the timing belt on a Hundai


    1. Remove all necessary components for access to the timing belt cover, then remove the cover.
    2. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No. 1 piston will be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
    3. Loosen the tensioning bolt and the pivot bolt on the timing belt tensioner. Move the tensioner as far as it will go toward the water pump. Tighten the adjusting bolt.
    4. Mark the timing belt with an arrow showing direction of rotation.
    5. Remove the timing belt.
    6. If defective, remove the timing belt tensioner.
    7. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
    8. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolt slightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
    9. Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
    10. Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
    11. Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
      NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1 tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
    12. Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works, without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
    13. Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
      NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
    14. Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
    15. Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
    16. Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side of the tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
    17. Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.

    Change alternator belt in a mazda mx-3


    If your engine are the 1,6 l , it is the same engine as my MX5 91.
    You have to remove power steering belt first if you have one. Loosen the mounting bolt located behind the pump pulley, then loosen the tensioner bracket bolts( one on the engine bracket and one in front of the adjusting bolt). After unscrew the adjusting bolt and push down the pump. Remove the belt.
    Now, it is the alternator. Loosen the mounting bolt located under the alternator, then loosen the tensioner bracket, but only the only in front of the adjusting bolt. Unscrew the adjusting bolt and pull up the alternator and remove the belt.
    When you tightening the new belt, the belt should be able to make a 1/4 turn, to make sure it is not to tight.
