V-BELT ADJUSTMENT CAUTION
On models equipped with an electric cooling fan, disconnect the negative battery cable or fan motor wiring harness connector before replacing or adjusting drive belts. The fan may come on, under certain circumstances, even though the ignition is OFF. Alternator Drive Belt

  1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
  2. If the deflection exceeds 1?4 in. (6mm), loosen the alternator mounting and adjusting arm bolts.
  3. On 1968-72 V8 and 6 cylinder models, use a prytool to move the alternator toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. NOTE: Apply tension to the front of the alternator only. Positioning the prytool against the rear end housing will damage the alternator.
  4. On 1973 and later V8 models, place a 1 in. (25.4mm) open-end or equivalent wrench on the adjusting arm bolt and pull on the wrench until the proper tension is achieved.
  5. Holding the alternator in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt. Inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the alternator mounting bolt. Fig. 1: Alternator belt adjustment belt routing - 86651054.gif
Power Steering Drive Belt ALL 6-CYLINDER AND 1971-72 V8 MODELS
  1. Holding a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run, test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
  2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts on the front face of the steering pump cover plate (hub side).
  3. Using a prytool on the pump hub, move the power steering pump toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. Do not pry against the reservoir as it is relatively soft and easily deformed.
  4. Hold the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and then inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned tighten the mounting bolts.
1973 AND LATER V8 MODELS
  1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
  2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the three bolts in the three elongated adjusting slots at the power steering pump attaching bracket.
  3. Turn the steering pump drive belt adjusting nut as required until the proper deflection is obtained. Turning the adjusting nut clockwise will increase tension and decrease deflection; counterclockwise will decrease tension and increase deflection.
  4. Without disturbing the pump, tighten the three attaching bolts. Fig. 2: Power steering belt adjustment (slider type)
Air Conditioning Compressor Drive Belt
  1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
  2. If the engine is equipped with an idler pulley, loosen the idler pulley adjusting boot, insert a prytool between the pulley and the engine (or in the idler pulley adjusting slot), and adjust the tension accordingly. If the engine is not equipped with an idler pulley, the alternator must be moved to adjust, as outlined under Alternator Drive Belt.
  3. When the proper tension is reached, tighten the idler pulley adjusting bolt (if so equipped) or the alternator adjusting and mounting bolts. Fig. 3: Air conditioning belt adjustment 86651056.gif
Thermactor® Air Pump Drive Belt
  1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
  2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting arm bolt slightly. If necessary, also loosen the mounting belt slightly.
  3. Using a prytool, pry against the pump rear cover to move the pump toward or away from the engine as necessary. WARNING
    Do not pry against the pump housing itself, as damage to the housing may result.
  4. Holding the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and recheck the tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the mounting bolt. Fig. 4: Air pump adjustment points 86651057.gif

How do I change the timing belt on a 2003 Tiburon


2003 Hyundai Tiburon 2.7L MFI DOHC 6cyl

Inspection
Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.
Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the engine splash shield.
  3. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
  4. Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
  5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
  6. Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.
To install:
  1. Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
  2. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
  3. Install the drive belt to the alternator.
  4. Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
  5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
  6. Install the engine splash shield.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
