Need to replace alternator on 2004 sorento Where is the tensioner and what way do i release it to get belt off thx


take a broom handle or similar stick, wedge it under the tension pully, it will be the small pully near the top of the belt sequence, you pry the pully down to take the spring tension away so you can then slide the belt off with ease. If you are going to replace the alt, it makes a lot of sense and will save you head aches if you also do the belt and the tension pulley. Your local parts store will have all three parts.

I have an 03 gmc sierra and i want to replace the alternator myself but i cant find the tensioner pully to loosen the belt.


should be right under the alternator and if its not the sometimes the alternator itself should adjust and act as a tensioner pulley, and if that's the case then your gonna need like a pry bar to get the belt tight again after you put the new alternator in.

How to adjust fan belt on izusu bighorn 3.1d


Find the tensioner. Tensioner is a pully to adjust the tension of the belt. Mostly the Alternator is the tensioner pully. Check it. ok

Changing the alternator and surpine belt


REPLACING ALTERNATOR
The tensioner pulley is toward the front of the car, best reached underneath (I had my car up on ramps when I did the replacement, which was a god idea) - I think it is a 13mm wrench used to move pulley toward the back of the car to loosen the serpentine belt.
Then slid the belt from around the alternator pulley so that the alternator could be removed.


The alternator comes out the top of the engine compartment, but to take it out you have to remove the coolant reservoir, and the wiper fluid container to have socket access to the three bolts that mount the alternator. One bolt is on top, the other two are underneath (looking at the new alternator is a good reference to see where the bottom two bolts are located).
There are also two electrical connectors and the nut-mounted positive cable that need to be removed prior to taking thealternator out.
There is not much room to get the old alternator out, but you will find one position in which the alternator can be removed - keep notice if this, as the new one has to go in the same way as the old one came out.

Having a second person around to move the tensioner pulley while you work on the belt would have made life easier.

REPLACING SERPENTINE BELT


If you look down at the belt area, you will see a pully toward the front of the car that looks like it's attached to an arm. That is the tensioner pully. The tensioner is spring loaded. If you look at the arm of the tensioner there should be a square hole in it to insert a socket wrench or a breaker bar/pull handle to use as a lever to remove the tension from the belt.
If there is no hOle, then use a wrench(possibly 15mm) on the bolt head of the pully itself as your lever. As you hold the tensioner out of the way, unloop the old belt. Pay attention to the routing, so you can reinstall the new one correctly.
Then, you route the new one in and again use your lever to move the tensioner so you can get the belt over the last pulley. Put it over the alternator last. Use a light to make sure the belt is fully on all 5 grooves of every single pulley before you start the car

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO LOOSEN THE PULLY'S SO I CAN CHANGE OUT MY ALTERNATOR


There shouold be a tension pully.. This pully keeps tension on the belt..
Put a wrench on the nut at the center of the pully.. You should be able to put pressure on it to move it and releasing the tension..

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.
