First unhook the negative battery cable so you do not blow the $20 alternator fuse. Loosen the bolt holding the adjust BLOCK in place on top of the alternator. Loosen the bolt holding the bottom of the alternator to the motor. Now you can use the adjuster bolt to slide the alternator over and out the belt back on . This is what you have to do to adjust your belt also. If you short the back of the alternator while tightening or loosening the lower bolt it blows an expensive fuse on the positive terminal of the battery(dealer only part)and your battery will not charge , no warning light, and your battery will go dead stranding you. When this happens a jump start will not help. A fully charged battery might get you home before it goes dead. Be Careful.

How to take off alternator off Dodge stratus 2005


Google your question and find a wealth of answers. Daniel Arellano gave the answer to someone back in 2012 who asked the same question from Fixya. He said:

I just gave somebody the written answer to this same question. i do not know about the visual. But if you know what the alternator looks like , you can fix it.
  • Disconnect and label the wiring harness connections to the alternator (Painters Masking tape works very well for labeling Automotive wiring).Label the wires with a marker so you will place them back exactly as you took them off.
  • Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
  • Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
  • Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
  • While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
  • Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To reinstall the alternator, reverse the removal procedure.
To adjust the belt tension, leave the pivot and adjusting arms loose. tighten the belt to about a half inch pressing with your finger.

Change water pump


Instructions
    • Raise the hood of the KIA and locate the battery. Disconnect the positive and negative cables.
    • 2Drain all of the coolant from the radiator and engine assembly. If you do not do this it will result in a large mess when you disconnect the hoses and the pump.
    • 3
    • Use a screwdriver to remove the mounting screws from the lower splash shield. Remove the shield from the vehicle. Disconnect both the air duct and fan by removing the screws which hold them in place.
    • 4Use a socket wrench to remove the tension bolt which is fixed to the alternator. This is the bolt that attaches the alternator to its bracket. Once the bracket is disconnect you will be able to slide the belt off the alternator. Remove the mounting bolt on the bottom of the alternator. Lift the alternator clear of the assembly. If you are struggling to move it on your own, have help on hand to aid in the lifting process.
    • 5Remove the coolant reservoir and radiator hoses from the engine assembly. On most Sportage models the coolant reservoir will have no mounting bolts and can be removed manually. You should be able to simply remove the hoses from the vehicle by pulling them with your hand.
    • 6Use a wrench to remove the tensioner bolts which fix the water pump in place. Lift the damaged pump out of the KIA.
    • 7Insert the new pump in the same place from which you removed the old one. Remove the old gasket and replace it with a new one at the contact point of the water pump. Fix the new part in place with the mounting bolts to a torque of 19 lbs. Place the reservoir coolant and radiator hoses back into the engine assembly by pressing them in to their connectors.
    • 8Attach the alternator to its bracket by fixing the mounting bolts in to the bottom. Attach the belt to the alternator and fix it in place with the tension bolt. Place the splash shield back on the vehicle and insert the coolant back in to the radiator. Reattach the battery terminals and turn on the engine to check that the water pump is now working correctly. Keep an eye out for leaks.

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.

    How do I replace the alternator


    Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

    Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

    Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

    Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

    Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

    Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

    INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

    Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

    Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

    Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

    Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

    Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

    Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

    How do I replace an alternator on a 2000 VW Passat 1.8T. How hard is it to replace?


    it isnt that hard actually

    disconect positive battery terminal. and feel the tension on the laternator belt. you will need to bring it back to this tension.

    1.) loosen bolts holding alternator in place (LOOK AT THE BELT TO REMEMBER HOW IT GOES, BEST NOT REMOVE THE BELT.)

    2.) loosen bolts holding wires to alternator and connect wires to new alternator

    3.) Place alternator in engine, replace bolts but dont tighten

    4.) put belt in place, it will be slack, use your tire iron or a piece of pipe or wood to pry the alternator back, to bring tension on the belt. You pry the alternator to pull the belt as TIGHT AS POSSIBLE. while holding strain, on it, tighten the bolts.

    The D on dashboard blinks periodically what do i do if red battery sign, break sign constsntly on and difficult to maneaour steering?


    D flashing on the dash means that there is a problem or code in your tranmission. Red battery light means there is a problem with you charging system most likeley bad alternator or maybe even a missing alternator belt check belt first and if the belt is in place ther is a problem withyour charging system. You can go to any auto place like Auto zone that check charging systems for free and have it checked or you can have it checked at your local repair shop. More than like the alternator is bad. HOWEVER SOMETIME IF YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR YOU CAN GET ALL THE PROBLEMS YOU STATED EXCEPT THE STEERING ONE. If your belt is missing power steering would be very difficult to turn. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a fix ya if I did fixya.

    Alternator


    Answer Use a large wrench to take tension off of your serpentine belt and remove the belt from the alternator, (just the alternator). Disconnect the wires. Remove the bolts then the alternator. Put new alternator in place using old bolts. Replace wires (may only be one wire, depending on the alternator). Get your large wrench back out, put the belt back on the alternator, and your good to go. this should do it.
