Odds are the alternator must always be removed to change a timing belt. The alternator is either up top or hidden own under the bottom. Either way if you think about it man it has to be pretty easy to find it has the belt connected to it.

How do I change the alternator on 2005 sebring


Will most vehicles, the alternator is located near the top with a belt going directly to it. This makes removal easier as you only need open the hood (bonnet) for access. Disconnect the battery's negative terminal first, and then disconnect the alternator's electrical connector. Loosen the belt tensioning bolt (also serves to affix the alternator) and tap it with a hammer to get it free to move to remove the tension from the belt. Unscrew the bolt completely and the alternator will be off. If you don't have the new alternator with you, put the bolt back in the mounting hole and snug it up so you won' misplace it. Buy a new alternator belt and inspect the starter belt while you at it. It is easier to change both at the same time, but the starter requires you get under the car to loose it from belt tension.

How to change alternator belt


Hi there,

Lift the car hood and disconnect the ground cable from the battery´s negative terminal. In the engine compartment, locate the alternator. On top of the alternator you will see a pivot bolt. Use a socket wrench to loosen this bolt, but do not remove it completely.

Locate the alternator belt and loosen it from its pulleys by applying pressure to the alternator and moving it in the direction of the engine. Once the alternator belt is loosened, pull it off from its pulleys.

Install the new alternator belt. It must run around the alternator pulley, the water pump pulley and the alternator pulley. With the new alternator belt in place, adjust it over the pulleys by bringing the alternator back to its original position, away from the engine. Make sure the belt is tight around the pulleys, then tighten the pivot bolt on top of the alternator.

Re-attach the ground cable to the battery and close the car hood.

Hope this helps...

How do you loosen starter motor to change the fan belt


There is not starter motor located in the fan belt location. you probably refer to the alternator. There are 2 bolts to hold the alternator to the chassis bracket. Loosen both of them, one for pivot and the other for belt adjuster. When you can wigle the alternator then you can take the belt off. Good luck.

Whats a difference between timing belt and drive belt , for my 2004 Elantra Hyundai cernter is asking to change the drive belt and flush the Hyd oil, car has 53,000 miles on it


a drive belt refers to belt driven items like alternator, power steering, water pumps and the like.

A timing belt is cogged to precicely hold the relationship between the crankshaft and the valve train. Timing belts are usually located within covers, as the loss or damage to this belt exposes engine damage and failure.
