These items normallly are sold in a kit (except the alternator belt which should cost about $20 for house brand or $30 for a good one). The kit should run about $175. You may want to consider also purchasing and replacing the water pump while you have items removed from the engine compartment because you have easy access and it saves about 45 minutes of time should the part ever fail later. That part with gasket would cost an estimated additional $50.

Adjust tension on fan belt 91 geo storm

Posted 3 time now (STORM is, a Isuzu Impulse)
and not ONE TIME>>" direction for loose. easy !

the early 1991, was 1.6L and has no SERP
end SERP:
they run old fashion V belts, did you even look first to see what is there?

its not a serp, in 1991.
but many posters here get year wrong, and that.
ISUZU engines per this list
1.6 L 4XE1 DOHC I4 (US, Canada only) 12valve
1.6 L 4XE1W turbo DOHC I4, 16valve.
1.8 L 4XF1 DOHC I4
the fan V belt , IIRC is the water pump,fan and alternator V belt.
if that is the belt you are alluding to then the alternator
pivots and adjust to tension it.

now ill quote the fsm on the 1.6L with v belts.
here we go, what you mean by fan , my guess is Alternator belt, its called that because the ALT is the adjustment.

Loosen the component-to-mounting bracket bolts.

Use a belt tension gauge (J-23600-B or equivalent) to determine proper belt adjustment; place the gauge at the center of the belt between the longest span.

Applying belt tension pressure on the component, adjust the drive belt tension to the correct specification:

For 1990 and 1991 vehicles, adjust the power steering pump belt to 145 lbs on vehicles with A/C or to 90 lbs on vehicles without A/C.

For 1990 - 1992 vehicles, adjust a new alternator belt to 140-180 lbs or a used belt to 110-150 lbs.

For 1992 power steering pump belts and 1993 vehicles, adjust the belt so that 22 lbs of thumb pressure produces the specified belt deflection at the center of the belt, between 2 pulleys. Under proper belt tension a new belt should deflect about 0.31-0.47 in. (8-12mm) or a used belt about 0.28-0.43 in. (7-11mm).

While holding the correct tension on the component, tighten the component-to-mounting bracket bolt.

When the belt tension is correct, remove the tension gauge."
end quote, if not clear after Ive posted all 3 engines, say so or ask a question.

How to remove alternator on RX350

Follow the below steps to remove the alternator from RX 350.
1) Disconnect the negative battery lead from the car battery terminal and remove the engine cover to access the alternator and accessory drive belt.
2) Loosen the 14 mm bolt on the accessory drive belt tensioner pulley. Take the free hand and grasp the belt while pulling away from the tensioner pulley. This will release the tensioner pulley and allow the belt to be removed.
3) Disconnect the electrical plug connected to the alternator by prying the locking tab loose with the regular screwdriver.
4) Remove the 14 mm through bolt from the alternator using the 14 mm wrench or socket. Support the alternator with the free hand until bolt is removed completely. Slide alternator out of the engine bay.
If you do need to replace your alternator this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

Need to change alternator

loosen tensioner bolt, but do not remove bolt. tensioner will drop down enough to get your belt back on. then lift tensioner back into position it was, re-tighten bolt. belt rides over top of of tensioner smooth pulley, note , sometimes the tensioner wears out and needs replaced, go to rockauto .com for best price. also, have the alternator bolts loosened when putting belt back on , this will help , but remember to re-tighten them after belt is on.

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.

    Is there a tensioner for the fan belt and where can I locate it? Squicky belt and battery keeps getting drained. thanks

    If this belt is only driving the alternator, water pump, and similar, the adjustment for belt tension is normally at the alternator, not a separate tensioner. If it is set up this way, the alternator will have a pivot bolt and a second one that is in a curved, elongated slot. This latter one sets tension. Gently loosen the pivot bolt (let it still drag) and then the adjustment bolt. While you are getting hands dirty, check the inside curve of the belt for cracks; tightening a sick belt isn't a good idea.
    Look for the longest straight stretch and adjust the tension so the belt will deviate 1/4 - 1/2" under moderate pressure.
    If your setup is different (or even if not), I recommend that everyone should have a service manual for their vehicles if reasonably priced such as Haynes (first choice) or Chilton (#2).
    Haynes is no longer offering them but existing stock is around:

    Took my car to the repair shop because my power steering went out. They told me I needed a belt tensioner ,belt and a pulley they would gather their prices and i would do the same. They havent called so I...

    No, the timing belt connects the engine to the cam-shaft (these lift and lower the valves). This belt normally has teeth on one side and is covered so you don't see it. This belt also drives the water pump.

    The power steering belt and tensioner are a different type of belt. I don't remember exactly but it is either a v-belt or a flat/ribbed belt. check closely, you need drive around the AC, power steering and alternator. there will be a tensioner and the engine too. Does all this get covered with just one belt (not counting the timing belt).

    Smooth wheel on the timing belt rattles butnut in middle is tight

    The timing belt is not on the outside of engine. What you are describing might be the belt tensioner. The bolts you speak of in alternator are the mounting bolts. If the "smooth" wheel is vibrating, then replace the wheel. That is the belt tensioner.

    Serpentine belt

    You must have just taken the alternator off without releasing the tension from the belt? The tensioner is built onto either the alternator itself or the power steering pump. There should be one or more bolts that need to be loosened and then you will have a bolt that loosens the tensioner bolt attached to either the alternator or power steering pump. Hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.
