Loosen the alternator bracket. Loosen the alternator tensioner until the belt is loose on the pulley. Remove the alternator belt. If you have a/c you will need to remove the a/c belt. Loosen its tensioner until it can be removed. Then you can loosen and remove the p/s belt. Install in reverse order of removal.

First, you will need a lot of money. A GM air conditioner compressor is very expensive.

I would only let a qualified mechanic make this replacement.

After all, the compressor costs about 800 to 1,000 dollars. i would only trust a mechanic to work on my cadillac

I have a 1997 Toyota Corolla, it sounds as if the belts are slipping and I'd like to replace them myself. From doing some research it seems that there are 3 belts: alternator belt, power steering belt and...


Well if your sure that it really is the belts the job isnt too hard. Refer to your owners manual for a clear view on how to replace them. I feel that every car owner should own a car manual for the car that they own cause they really do come in handy and are very informative. My question for you is how did you determine that it is your belts that are making the slipping sound? An oil pump that is no longer pumping oil will cause your engine to make almost the same sound and the squeal that you hear is the cylinders lacking lubrication. You might want to check your oil pressure just in case.

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.

I need to remove the engine belts


The A/C and alternator are easy enough. They both have bolts that hold them in place/adjust the belt tension. Loosen these bolts and shift your alternator and A/C compressor to free the belts. The timing belt? It requires removing the valve cove.

Can you run a 1997 corolla without the a/c belt


Take a close look to see if any other pulleys are on that belt. If it's just the A/C compressor, crank pulley, and maybe a tentioner, you can run without it.
Power sterring, the alternator, and water pump must be on a different belt!
