Assuming you're talking about the 22re ... there are tensioners on both the power steering (first) and the a/c belts. Loosen the bolt on the pulley and then the bolt on the side of the tensioner tightens and loosens the belt. You might want to check the inner ... alternator / water pump belt while you're there. No tensioner for this one, you need to loosen the bolt that the alternator pivots on, loosen the bolt on top of the alternator that holds it in place on that bracket and then pry alternator and tighten bolts to hold the tension.

Yes, that's what lock's it in place to hold tension on belt, loosen nut on pulley, and turn other bolt and pulley will slide up or down to release tension on belt.

SOURCE: cant figure out how to loosen AC belt, goes around


I would first determine where the bolts are for the ac compressor and loosen them until the belt slides off.

Or, I know this may sound goofy, but you can get a breaker bar and socket or a large wrench and turn the crankshaft while putting a large flat screwdriver in between the v-belt and one side of the v of the pulley, and TURRRRRN it slowly until the screwdriver wedged in there actually takes the belt off (with turning).

That's a trick to use, but inspect the belt for damage afterward, or replace the belt if it is damaged in the process, which it usually is not.

Hope that helps.

I am trying to change my 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage (w/ ac) alternator belt. I loosened the tensioner, took out the top - bottom and inside bolt of the ac compressor to take off the first belt and even took...

I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
To take off the alternator belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the automobile , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley (right side of pump mount), the nut holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley nut loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.
