The belt should be able to be twisted in a manner that will fit into the space between the pulleys and the wheel well. You will also need to remove the tire and the plastic splash guards on the inner wheel well. Romove the plastic grommets carefully. You will now have better access the align the belt onto the pulleys. You will also be able to see theadjuster pulley wilth a square shaped recess that accomadates a breaker bar end or ratchet end. You will beed to turn this pulley while slipping on the belt. Its easier with 2 people. Check the mitsubishi forums for more help.

Just bought 2002 astra sxi 16v timing belt snapped within 10 minutes of buying is the engine knackered

Pssible. If the valves and pistons overlap , i.e. occupy the same space at different times there is a hich probability that when the belt smapped they came together. This results in bent valves and damaged piston crowns usually Valves can be replaced and pistons, if they are just grazwd, can be cleaned up a little and lift alone thereafter. If the two sets of components have come together with some force , and the result is a lot of damage, it could be costly.
On the other hand the components might not overlap, they may never occupy the same space at any time. Such engines are called safe, or non interference engines.
Hope it is not too bad

Incase you can't here goes. Clock wise. Power steering, altenator, idler pulley, air con, cranck, tensioner, water pump back to power steering. Little space and quite tricky to get belt over all the pulleys without it popping of somewhere. I also have a problem with the belt supplied by spare shops. 6pk2100, its to small. at least on mine.

Need help installing serpentine belt on 1990 Chrysler Imperial 3.3 V6 with A/C. Space is limited for getting hands in to loosen belt tensioner or anywhere to get belt over pulley's. Any suggestion

Be sure to start by making sure you have the belt routing diagram or draw on up! I have trouble stuffing my hands into some of those spaces too. Usually what I do is locate the tensioner pulley and depress it. I've used long flat wrenches designed for exactly this problem all the way to a pry bar placed and used carefully so as not to damage anything. There is usually a flat (no grooves) pulley that you can slip the belt off of. Once you get it off a single pulley, gently release the tensioner and you can start to feed the belt off. Again, using a long screwdriver or whatever necessary to get it off. Then again, you could just cut it and pull! Feed the new belt in to the bottom and work up. Keep the belt snug so you don't knock one side off while trying to wrap it around another and work it up to the same pulley that you pulled it off from to start. Again, press the tensioner down, pop the belt in to place. INSPECT carefully to be sure nothing slid off a pulley even a little bit. Then you should be good to go! A pain for those of us who can't wear "one size fits all" gloves but its the best solution I've come up with! Best of luck!

Replace timing belt diagram

Your timing belt should be replaced every 50-70,000 miles. Carmakers have specified the replacement intervals for timing belts. In this database you will find these timing belt replacement intervals along with a little technical information regarding the valve configuration - interference or non-interference. In an interference engine, the valves and piston share the same air space. They never touch, unless your timing belt breaks or skips, and this is a catastrophic failure that requires removing the head and replacing bent valves. Non-interference engines do not risk this contact if the timing belt goes. Nonetheless, either can leave you stranded, so regular timing belt replacement is very important.8767e98.png1bda33f.jpgd4c1513.jpg

How do i install a water pump in a 1995 honda accord ex 2.2 L sohc vtech

The water pump is driven by the cam belt and that belt must be removed in order to replace the pump. There is also a balance shaft belt. You engine is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. Also if you remove the cam belt, put it back on incorrectly and start the engine, you will have damage. There is too little space here to tell you how to do this. I suggest you pay a professional or purchase a repair manual in order to diy correctly. The cam belt must be replaced every 90,000 miles.
