  • 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.

    Replacing alternator belt on 2007 1.3 cdti combo is it easy to do


    Loosen alternator, push it towards the block until belt is loose. Pull the belt off and replace. Once the new belt is on push the alternator away from the block until belt is tight and tighten bolt/bolts. You might need a bar to keep tension on the alternator while tightening bolt/bolts.

    How do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


    Hello there,
    To replace the alternator in your car:
    Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
    Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
    Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
    Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
    Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
    Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
    Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
    All the best. Elect_Comp

    Belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt replacement?


    The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

    Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

    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.

    1994 toyota corolla alternator belt replacement


    loosen the bolt that is holding the adjuster of the alternator. loosen the belt by pulling it and the alternator would slide in. remove and replace the belt.

    do the reverse on installation.

    remember to tighten all bolts of the adjuster and alternator after tightening the belt.
