How to change an alternator

In almost all cases you have an idler tension pulley which rides against belt between alternator and main pulley at crankshaft, so it will have to be first thing to loosen to release tension on belt to remove. There is a special tool for releasing tension while you tighten it to put new belt on. Take some pictures before you pull off belt for it can get confusing if you don't know what you are doing entirely. These belts take some dramatic looping.

How do I put the serpentine belt back on a 1998 saturn sl2 after I have installed a new alternator

there is a little stick man illustration sticker under the hood showing how to release belt tension by moving the tensioner arm. if the serpentine belt is still on the lower pulley then put the belt on everything except the tensioner, then move the tensioner arm as needed, put the belt in there and release the tensioner arm. most likely going to need two people to do this.

if the belt has come off the lower pulley then you are going to have to remove the service panel behind the right front wheel and put the belt back on lower pulley, then do as above described. this would be a great time to put a new tensioner, a new serpentine belt, and a new "dog bone" motor mount on as it will all be right there to work on with that service panel out.

How do you change the alternator belt on a 2002 toyota avalon xls

There are two bolts on the alternator:
One holds it in position on a rail to adjust belt tension and the other mounts it to a brace. Loosen both of these and angle the alternator to release the belt tension and remove the belt. Put the new one on and reverse your removal technique. You want the belt taut, but not tight. If it squeals when it's running, just adjust the tension to make it a little bit tighter.

Alternator Replacement

You may have a self tensioner which applies belt tension with a spring.

Look for a spot to put a 1/'2"drive breaker bar on it and release the belt tension, then slide the belt off and install new belt. You may need a helper to remove the belt while you hold the tension off,
