Get a new belt from an autoparts store, to suit your vehicle year and model.

The alternator has to be loosened to fit the new belt. There's usually two locations to loosen

  1. the top adjuster clamp arm; and
  2. the lower pivot bolt. On the 4cyl motors its in behind the oil filter. Uncertain about the v6.
Once loose, the alternator can be swiveled so that the belt will fit over the main pulley.

Make sure that the alternator does actually rotate. If not, get it serviced or replaced.

Swivel the alternator back down and tighten the clamp arm so there's about 8-10mm of movement when you press the belt.

Tighten up the lower pivot bolt.

If you don't have the tools or skills to do this, have the car towed to a garage.

Had two warning lights come on the das the battery light and handbrake light plus temperature went up high


Maybe your serpentine belt is slipping or gone. Not sure if the water pump runs off the same belt as the alternator on this model.

Ford Van Alternator problem do I need a new alt, pulley, belt? Is there a tool for changing the alt?


Find the reason for the fault in the alternator. Visually inspect the drive belt and check the belt tension. Pulleys do not normally rear out unless they have broken flanges./ Have the alternator output check by an auto electrician. before you spend big dollars

I loss power went driven in ten min


Assuming the alternator belt had not broken, the alternator's job is to recharge the battery. If you loose power and the engine dies, then the alternator is not functioning. Remove the alternator and trade it in for a rebuilt alternator. If you don't take the old alternator to the parts store, there's a core surcharge. Inspect the alternator belt's condition and replace if needed.

While driving my 2003 Jetta TDI last night accelerating up a hill my battery light came on and the car died. All other lights work, glow plug light still comes on. Engine turns over but does not fire. ...


Did you check the battery? Alternator? The 2003 Jetta TDI's are FAMOUS for breaking the alternator pulley right off the shaft. Is your serpentine belt hanging?
You could have a bad battery, broken alternator, broken serpentine belt, or bad alternator among a few other things. If your belt is hanging either the belt broke or more commonly, the alternator puller broke off the shaft.
It happens all the time with the 2003's

How to fix a broken alternator belt?


You can't fix a broken alternator belt, all you can do is replace it. Go to autozone or advance or any other chain parts store, get your replacement and put it back on. Loosen the alternator and adjust so the new belt will go onto the pulleys, then put tension on the belt by adjusting the alternator so that you have about 1/2" of play in the belt when you pull up and push down on the belt. If after you tighten and start the car the belt squeals, you will need a bit more tension in order to quieten it down and insure that it is not slipping. Good Luck...Hope this is helpful!

Belt is broken


OK, now I understand. The belt goes around the alternator and water pump as well Just give the make and model to any auto parts store and ask for the alternator, power steering, water pump belt and they will know which one it is. If it helps, the Gates number is: K060525

Broken bottom alternator belt


Check those pulleys that the Alternator belt runs on and make sure that they are ok. Make sure that oil is NOT getting on this belt (form oil leaks ) that's one of the most common reasons for belts to break that often. Good Luck
