I'm having problems changing Alternayer belt? Is there a trick to getting to the bottom front bolt the alternater?


I'm not sure if this is right but it worked for me. Unloosen the bolt in the center of the idler pulley. you will need to get to it from under car. once loose it seems to slide to loosen belt. Put tension on idler pulley (to tighten belt) when tightening center bolt. Hope it works for you

I can't get my power steering belt on. what can i loosen up to slide it on?


The idler belt can be loosed out on the main pulley circuit which allows the belt to be pushed into the slot and then the idler can be pulled up to be tightened to the desired tension.

How to change alternator belt


914d651.gif
alternator and air conditioning compressor
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the idler pulley bolt.


The replacement of the inner belt on multi-belted engines may require the removal of the outer belts.
To replace a drive belt, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts of the component which the belt is driving. Move the component inward to relieve the tension on the drive belt.
Slip the belt off the component pulley and match the new belt with the old belt for length and width. The old belt will be slightly longer. After a new belt is installed correctly, adjust the tension.
  1. Turn the adjustment bolt at the top of the idler pulley bracket. Clockwise rotation will tighten the belt; counterclockwise will loosen it.
  2. Keep the idler pulley bolt snug (but not tight) while adjusting belt tension. The adjustment bolt should turn with moderate force.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.


Reconnect the negative battery cable.

When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.

Need to know how to adjust serpentine belt, please show diagram. 6 cyl engine.


Really don't need a diagram. Loosen the slide bolts on the power steering pump. loosen or tighten the pump by turning the jack screw (long transverse bolt) under the pump. Once the belt is tightened up, lock down the slide bolts and you are finished.

Belt seems too short,already loosened alternator as much as possi


there is a bolt attached to the idler arm, if you get the right size socket and a good wrench, you have to pull the idler arm. it will pull the entire tensioner and the belt will be loose

1996 buick regal fan belt slipped off


The idler pulley is spring loaded. With the correct size socket and ratchet and a strong arm just pivot it away momentarily from the belt enough to pull the belt loose. You don't actually remove the pulley. Just like taking a dead mouse out of the old spring traps. If you are getting some pulley noise, you can replace the pulley only (one bolt)
pour water on the pulley to see if noise changes, its an easy way to track down belt, pulley noises.

Instructions


Just did mine today.....Jack up the front as high as possible, remove front passenger wheel, put jackstands under car so it doesn't come down on you, remove the plastic inside fender well by taking out the 2 bolts and 3 plastic toggles, you need to remove the alternator belt to get to the power steering belt so loosen the center nut on the idler pulley/tensioner and then loosen the idler using the bottom nut/bolt to take the tension off the belt, remove the alternator belt first drawing a picture of how the belt is routed on all the pulleys for reassembly. Now loosen the 2 face nuts/bolts on the power steering belt idler pulley/tensioner and then use the nut/bolt on it's bottom to take the tesion off the belt and then remove the belt. Reinstall the belt and reverse everything to get it back together. Put on a new alternator belt on while your at it.
