Check all your pulleys to make sure all of them roll freely and are not locked up. ( water pump, tensioner, compressor for a/c, and powersteering pump) also check to make sure they are all tight and no play. One of them could be out of line and that could be stressing the belt.

BMW 318i M46 belt tensioning




adjust ur belt by following steps
now that you know where the components are these components are driven by a belt. So when you turn your AC on there’s a belt that’s driving the AC compressor, when you turn the stirring wheel and you have that nice that easy feel of turning the stirring wheel when you’re parallel parking your car that’s the power stirring pump doing its job. Your alternator is keeping the battery charged, the lights on and the engine running. So I want to show you where the belts are, what they look like, how to adjust them and how to tell a bad belt from a good belt. As you can see these are your drive belts, this is the AC drive belt it drives the AC compressor, this is the alternator drive belt it drives the alternator, if you look down here you can see this is where the adjustment is on that AC compressor belt, if you look right here this is the top adjusting bolt for adjusting the alternator either up or down to tighten or loosen the belt. There’s a bolt down here that locks the alternator in place and this bolt is the pivot bolt for the alternator. So if you’re going to let’s say remove your alternator belt you’d have to remove these covers, loosen this bolt, loosen this bolt that’s underneath this cover and adjust this bolt to either lower the alternator or raise the alternator, if you’re belt was too loose you’ll pull up on the alternator, if the belt was too tight you’ll

Power steering belt shredding on 97 caravan


Count the multi-grooves on each pulley. Mine had six on one and more on the alternator. Changed to the six grove belt and end of story. Yes the alternator had one extra grove but works great.

Good Luck

1985 buick century custom


check each pulley for issues like rough surfaces pits and cracks..be sure most of the pulleys turn by hand to some degree with no resistance( or very little) the alternator, water pump , powr steering and ac clutch pulleys should turn free.. if not, find out why.. also check for almost ferfect alignment..they should all be straight in line with each other if not find out why..repost findings..

How to change belts on 2002 Nissan Frontier 4 cylinder


2002 frontier 4 cyl: 1) take off air intake tube, 2 screws 13 mm above radiator. 2) 1st belt for power stirring has pulley, undo pulley screw and unscrew adjuster bolt enough to take belt off 3) 2nd belt for alternator and water pump has no pulley but adjusting bolt and mounting bolt on alternator pulley, loosen mounting bolt and unscrew adjusting bolt enough to take belt off, if alternator will not move go under the truck and remove plastic cover- 6 screws 13 mm heads, after that look directly under alt. Pulley and should see a screw head 9/16 in, loosen it so alternator can move, now should be easy to remove belt ( it will be a lot harder to put new one though) 4) 3rd belt for compressor has pulley so follow #2 to remove it ,have to be done under the truck. First 2 belts will have to work around fan blades to remove them so wear gloves. After replacing belts remember that not to over tighten bolt on pulleys.

Keeps shredding belts


Usually the problem is a pulley that is dragging or out of alignment.
The dragging pulley could be an alternator or ac compressor that is failing at random times. Or other accessories.

My chevy 2000 malibu is shredding through its serpintine belt ive replaced the tension pulley and the power steering pulley and bought and replaced a belt what else can be wrong one of the pulleys i think...


Yes that is very likely it. Since you changed the belt, you should know - Is it the tensioner pulley ? Otherwise it is probably the water pump. The problem is the bearings.. If the bearings are locking up, the resistance will shred the belt quickly.. the part needs to be replaced is the bearings. Waterpump bearings are built in to pump. Change whole thing. (may need to transfer the pulley)

How to change alternator belt on 98 mitsubishi galant es, i looked under the hood and a belt was shredded. i took it off and the car still started but when i cut the car off it wouldnt start back up, i...


Most likely what is happening is that either the fan/water pump is no longer being turned by the engine, which it needs the belt on for (Assuming it's a '98, not an '89), causing it to overheat, or the battery is being drained because the belt being off the alternator is causing the alternator to not turn, therefor producing no power. Make sure no shards of old belts remain, and put on the new belt. That should solve the problems.

Having trouble starting car. The battery is fine since lights still come on. Found a shredded belt. Not sure if it's the alternator belt. Appreciate the help. Marcia


Don't drive the car until you make sure the belt that is shredded is not the water pump belt. YOU could drive but the engine will overheat and have a more costly problem. Two things, if the lights are working but the car is not starting. It could be that the terminals are dirty on the battery AND if the belt that is shredded is the Alternator belt, the battery could be just down on charge. Do to things (1) Find out which belt needs to be replaced and have it replaced. (2) Charge the battery, maybe a friend has a charger, if so have them trickle charge the batter for at least 12 hrs. Less there's some other problem that should take care of it.
