How do i replace the altenator belt


Take a look at the one that's on there now. You will have to loosen the bolts that keep the alternator from pivoting. There will be one bolt where the alternator contacts the engine and another bolt farther out on the alternator. At that point, there will be a bracket with a groove, and the bolt is in that groove. Loosen the bolt on the engine and then loosen the slider bolt. You should be able to rotate the alternator toward the engine. That will put enough slack into the belt that you can remove it.

Installation is the reverse of removal. Slide the belt into place; lift the alternator to tighten the belt; tighten the bolt on the slider bracket; tighten the bolt on the engine. Check the belt's tightness after a few day because it will stretch and loosen.

What would make a belt fall off a 2007 ford fussion or split the belt into?


The split is puzzling. But for falling off, the tensioner must be weak. The pulleys can wobble if the bearings in their center is bad, you will be able to feel roughness.

The tensioner arm is spring loaded. Sometimes there is a wear bar for judging if a belt is stretched. No matter how strong a tensioner spring is, if the belt has stretched too far, there is nothing you can do but replace the belt.

Check the pulley grooves and count them. Some Alternator pulleys have 8 grooves and some have 6 grooves. While the flat faced pulleys are often wider than necessary, the grooved pulleys can quickly cut a wider belt into 2 belts. The Alternator grooves must match the number of grooves on the crankshaft.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


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.

    How do I remove the alternator to replace it with a newer one?


    1) IMPORTANT - Disconnect the neg battery terminal (IMPORTANT) 2) Release the spring loaded tensioner (makes the serpetine belt tight). The control bolt that keeps it tight is right tunder the alternator (1994 Voyager). Use a long handled torque wrench. 3) Hold on the to serpentine belt (otherwiuse it'll be a mess) keep it tight-ish. Pass a stick through it and keep it tight or prop it up with a bungies or something!!! Be gentle. 4) Two bolts hold the alternator, one is obvious the other is more towards the back. Watch your knuckles be gentle but strong. Remove the nuts, gently lift it out and hold it there. 5) Disconnect the leads from the the electrical that are attached. Place the old one on the bench. 6) Watch that belt!!! 7) Get the new alternator. 8) Connect the electrical. 9) Bolt it in. 10) Place the serpetine belt in the groove, careful make sure it doesn't pop out anywhere else below. Popping out (even one groove) and driving it could destroy your belt. 11) Back to the tensioner, relase slowly, it will make itself tight again. 12) Attach the battery again. 13) Start the car. 14) IMPORTANT remember, clean those battery posts and cable leads. the dirt won't allow full contact thus minimal recharge. Trust me, been there.

    I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 car. What steps I am suppose to do.


    First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

    1. Loosen the alternator lock nut.
    2. Loosen the adjuster bolt.
    3. Rotate the adjuster bolt counter clockwise to release the tension on the belt.
    4. Remove the belt.
    Similarly for the compressor belt

    The alternator belt continues to be thrown even after tightning the alternator. You can replace the belt, tighten the alternator and it may stay on several days but eventually comes off again.


    It must be that one of the pulleys is out of line or mishaped, although it could be that a shaft bearing on one of the pulley shafts is bad and causing it to vary in tightness as it rotates.I would try rotating all the pulleys to see if one is wobbling.
