I have a 2004 mitsubishi lancer es and need to change the alternator belt. I was wondering if anyone knows how or has a diagram?


To move the alternator you have to loosen the bolt that holds the bottom of the alternator. Then loosen the bolt on the block that the long adjuster bolt goes through. Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt to move the alternator. To adjust the power steering bolt, you need to loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (Holds it in place, Goes through the center of the pulley). Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt on the front of the motor to tighten or loosen the front belt.

How do i change the timing belt in a 2003 mitsubishi lancer es


Hi, first pop the hood and find the serpentine and alternator belts on the left side of the engine compartment. The serpentine belt runs around four pulleys. The alternator belt uses two pulleys. They share space on the drive shaft so they are right next to each other.
Of the four pulleys using the serpentine belt, three of them are vertically in line (closer to the front of the car) and the fourth stands alone (closer to the cab). Of the three vertically in line, the middle pulley is the one used to adjust the tension on the belt.
You must first break loose the bolt in the center of the tension pulley (the bolt is facing the passenger tire) by turning it counter clockwise. Then leave that bolt and go to the bolt connected frame connected to the other side of the tension pulley (this bolt is facing the front of the car). Turn that bolt counter clockwise until the serpentine belt is loose enough to pull off. Replace the belt and tighten in the opposite order. Once the desired tension is reached, crank the car and run it for a few minutes. Finally cut the car off and check the tension, tighten or loosen as necessary.
Take care

Alternator


Drop the drivebelt by swinging the tension-idler with a crescent wrench and popping the belt off the alternator pulley.

Dis-connect the battery.

Roll the electrical connection boot back to get access to the connectors and remove.

Back out the top mounting bolt (it may be stubborn, don't be afraid to put weight on it) and swing unit out to get easier access to the lower mount.
Drop the new unit in place and start the lower and upper mount bolts...re-connect the electricals...tighten the mounting bolts.
Swing the tension-idler to re-mount the belt.

re-connect the battery.

How do i change the alternator belt on my 02 mitsubishi lancer?


The alternator is held in place by two bolts.

Top and bottom bolts - 12 mill bolts.

By loosening the bolts (especially the top bolt) you will find that the alternator can be manipulated forward and backwards along its housing (guides). Once the belt has loosened you can slip it off and replace the belt as required.

To tighten the alternator belts all you need to do is push the alternator away from the front of the engine and tighten the belt as required.

Once the belt is taut tighten the 2 bolts and you are away.

I have a 1991 dodge colt vista 2.0 l engine, and need to know where to get info on replacing ( how to or what to do ) the alternator belt. thanks


There is a curved bracket that the alternator is bolted to. This allows you to adjust the belt tension. Loosen this bolt and locate the other bolt that mounts the alternator to your engine. Loosen this one, as well. Now swing your alternator in the direction that will allow you to free the belt and remove it. Put the new belt on and swing the alternator to get good tension on the belt. Tighten both of the bolts on the alternator, but leave them loose enough that you can still adjust the belt's tension. Now use a bar to pry the alternator in the direction that will increase the tension on the belt a little bit and tighten the bolt on the curved bracket with your free hand. Now, tighten the other bolt. Start the car and verify that the belt has decent tension and does not slip (this will cause premature wear, squealing and bad charging). If everything is good, you should be all set. If it is too tight or too loose, you will need to readjust the tension of the belt.

Hope this helps,
matt

How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer


I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
good luck.

2003 Lancer ES High pitch squeal and constant squeak


Shortly after replacing the serpentine belt in my lancer, the same thing happened. It is NOT the timing belt. Belts squeal when they slip. If your timing belt slipped it would cause your car to run funny.

have somebody check the belt for wear (or do it yourself), replace if necessary. If it doesn't need replacement, just tighten it.

If you have the 4cyl engine that I have, the tightening is kind of a pain in the ****. Not a great design by mitsubishi. There's a pulley near the front right corner of the engine in front of the alternator. the belt should be running around this pulley GROOVE SIDE OUT. This is the tension pulley.

To tighten:
1) Lightly loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (slightly loosen, DO NOT REMOVE).
2) Under that pulley there's another bolt. You can see that the bolt goes through a piece of metal
attached to the back of the pulley. Figure out which way you need to turn the bolt to move the
pulley toward the front of the car. (i don't remember if it's right hand thread, or left hand) This
puts extra tension on the belt. You probably don't need much. Over tensioning the belt can
cause pulley bearing failure. If you haven't done this work before, ask someone for
help
. It's better to tighten a little bit, a few times rather than overtighten once.
3) Don't forget to ReTighten the bolt in the center of the pulley.

If there's lots of cracks and pieces missing on the ribs or grooves of the belt you should replace it first.

Happy repairing,
Cliff

Change the tire. Your tires might be worping from the inside. I had the same problem. It might need an aligment too.
