Loosen the bolts for the alternator,then swing it inwards towards the engine,fit belt and swing out to tighten as you do up the bolts.1/2"play in the longest run of belt between pulleys.check alignment of pulleys,belts do not come off on there own.

Chevy tracker power steering belt change


I don't know model year? Is the radiator fan electric or belt driven? If electric look for electrical connector. Your water pump has to be driven by something. If fan is belt driven, some makes and models, that same belt drives the water pump.

Timing belt limp home mode


If the timing belt breaks the engine will not run! the timing belt is what keeps the crank and cams in "time" if the belt breaks the crankshaft can no longer turn the cams which will not allow fuel to get in, exhaust to get out, or compression to occur.

Fan belt snapped on my renault express diesel changed that but now it now it turns over but wont fire up


check the belt is on correctly if it is it will be tight and around all pulleys,make sure around fuel pump pulley. Also ask yourself why belt snapped in first place was it old/cracked and due to break or did a pulley sieze and cause belt to squeel and burn then snap.

I have a 2003 x5 4.4 the sterring is a little stife and thw battery light flickers is this an eletrical problem or altinator ?


Hi

your quite lucky that this has happened this way, the 4.4 has a shared belt, the belt powers the steering and the altenator that charges the battery when the charge rate drops the light comes on, most likely it wil need changing and I would recommend you have it done asap as if and when the belt snaps it cuases a lot of damage I had the 4.4 v8 petrol version on a 2000 plate, this happened to mine and cost me £350 to replace all the things the belt damaged when it snapped. I never got a warning like this so do get it looked at asap. if you are doing it your self you need to remove all the sheilding around the fan at the front to access the belt, also pat attention as to how it comes off draw a daigram if you are doing it as it can be very confusing to put back on.

Regards
Dan
