Diagram of installation process alternator 1998 Volvo S70

I don't have a diagram. Here are the steps.
1) disconnect negative battery wire..
2) remove serpentine belt
3) remove upper heater hose and thermostat housing; leave thermostat in place
4) remove plate from in front of the power steering pump, the lower bolt is one of three of the alternator bolts.
5) remove all 5 bolts from the PS pump bracket - 2 are by the thermostat housing. Remove the bracket.
6) move the PS pump off to the side out of your way.
7) Remove the long bolt from the alternator you can now see. There is one more alternator bolt at the top which will allow you to remove the idler pulley bracket with the serpentine tensioner. This idler bracket and the tensioner bracket are sizeable, so you have to understand the volume of stuff you are removing.
8) Unhook the alternator wire and with some patience, if you have any left, you can squeeze the alternator out.
This procedure assumes you have the ability to do the serpentine belt removal and refitting, and you will need 12mm sockets/wrenches to do the rest. The t-stat housing uses the torx head screws, so you need that as well.

Hi, it appears there are other belts in front of the alternator belt. In this case, the other belts have to come off first. There are adjusting mechanisms on each the air pump, compressor, and alternator to loosen and tighten the belts. The power steering belt is adjusted by sliding the idler pulley. Please follow the instructions below and let me know if you have any questions.


See Figures 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11


Fig. Fig. 6: Loosen the pivot bolt ...


Fig. Fig. 7: ... push the component inwards ...


Fig. Fig. 8: ... slip the old belt off and install a new one


Fig. Fig. 9: Pull outwards to tension the belt


Fig. Fig. 10: Belt routing on the 20R, 22R and 22R-EC engines


Fig. Fig. 11: Belt routing on the 4ME, 5ME and 5MG-E engines


To adjust the tension of the alternator drive belt on all models, loosen the pivot and mounting bolts on the alternator. Using a wooden hammer handle, a broomstick or your hand, move the alternator one way or the other until the proper tension is achieved.

WARNING Do not use a screwdriver or any other metal device (such as a prybar) as a lever.
Tighten the mounting bolts securely. If a new belt has been installed, recheck the tension after about 200 miles (480 km) of driving.

Air Conditioning Compressor

A/C compressor belt tension can be adjusted by turning the tension adjusting bolt which is located on the compressor tensioner bracket. Turn the bolt clockwise to tighten the belt and counterclockwise to loosen it.

Air Pump

See Figures 12
To adjust the tension of the air pump drive belt, loosen the adjusting lever bolt and the pivot bolt. Move the pump in or out until the desired tension is felt.
The tension should be checked between the air pump and the crankshaft pulley on cars without air conditioning. On cars with A/C, the tension should be checked between the A/C compressor and the crankshaft pulley.


Fig. Fig. 12: Moving the air pump to tension the drive belt

Power Steering Pump

Tension on the power steering belt is adjusted by means of an idler pulley. Turn the adjusting bolt on the idler pulley until the desired tension is felt and then retighten the lockbolt.

I need the routing diagram for a 1995 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L. the old belt broke off and there is no diagram under the hood

No diagram but it goes over the power steering pulley, going ccw, under the top idler (back of belt on pulley), over the ac compressor, over the alternator, up over the fan (backside of belt on pulley), around the crank pulley, over the water pump (back of belt on pulley) then you're back at the ps pump. It's tightened by loosening the pump pivots and using the long exposed jack screw below the pump to move it.

I need to replace the alternator belt on my 1992 mazda 929

Find The Alt. Loosen But Don't Remove All Nuts Bolts That Look Like They Might Be Holding It On.

Disconnect The Neg Battery Cable From The Battery First.

The Alt. Should Pivot Back And Forth / Up And Down. Look At It And Notice How It Travels In An Arc. This Is How You Establish The Correct Tension When You Tighten The Bolts With The New Belt Installed. Use A Long Screwdriver As A Lever To Get The Tension And Tighten The Bolts With The Other.

Pretty Simple.

I Think The Outside Belt Drives The Water Pump And Alternator And The Inside Belt Drive The Ac And Ps Pump. If Your Belt Is On The Inside You Need To Loosen The Ps Pump And Take That Belt Off First.

I need to know where is the oil presure switch of a 2003 ford windstar 3.8l

On a 1996 3.8 L Should be under the power steering on the block. Looking at the pulleys on the right side just above the oil pan. This would involve removing the pwr steering punp and hoses.

I don't know if a 2003 is different.. You could inspect the area visually to check it.

To get to replace it...
96 - 98 windstar 3.8 oil pressure switch is located under power steering pump. Remove serpentine belt and alternator. Remove PS pump pulley with special puller to get access to PS pump bolts. Drain PS pump and remove PS hoses. Remove PS pump.

Im trying to change the altinator in my 2003 silverado v-6. i took the two bolts out the electric componets and still cant get it loose.

Hi: !st Thing you need to do is disconnect your negative battery cable to prevent more damage.If i'm understanding you Right you Took the Wiring off the Alternator.Or did you Remove the Mounting Bolts? Here Goes Disconnect Battery, Loosen the Bolt on the Alternator Adjuster Bracket, This will give you Some Slack in the Belt ,BUT Locate the Belt Tensioner take a Breaker Bar or The Correct Size Boxed in Wrench or use a Ratchet and Socket. The Tension Is Spring Loaded to Keep Your Belt From Coming OFF. Your Belt Runs Probally Everything like your Alternator ,Water Pump,A/C Compressor,Power Steering So On. So Until you Take the Belt Either OFF or Just Release the Tension on the Belt,I'm Sure if you Have Removed All mounting Bolts and Your Wires to The Alternator, Your Alternator Will Come on Out with a Little Light Effert. Be Sure You Watch How Eveything Comes Off Cause You'll Have To Reverse the Way you Took It Off To Put it Back Together. Be Sure You Look At the Belt Routing Diagram Which is on either your Cross bar By The Radiator. Its Say Belt Routing Diagram. Hope This Gets you Going It Should.If You Follow These Instructions. Please Let Me Know how My Advice Helped You By Voting And Also You Can Send me A Message on FIXYA. From The WYOCWBOY

Change v belt to power steering

you dont say what engine but they are basically the same, if the ps belt is behind the other belts they will have to be removed look for the adjustments and loosen them, pay close attention to the routing take a picture or draw a diagram, usually the ps pump has a slotted side, loosen this bolt and others holding it in place and it will slide in, if it is mounted rigid the adjustment is from some other componet the belt goes around some of these used a idler type pullly, on these loosen the center bolt and then the nut on a long threaded bolt on the side to loosen the pully

1994 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition - a pully flew off (literally!), and I can't tell if it's the water pump or some other part - it's directly below the alternator. I need to know what that accessory...

I would bet it is the belt tensioner or belt idler, but can not be sure as I can not look it. At one time there were belt routing diagrams on a sticker under the hood, but I do not know if your Explorer was one of those. If I find a link to the belt routing I will post it for you.

1993 beretta serpentine belt diagram

well its hard to describe but here goes. the belt will run across the top from the PS pump to the alt. from the alt to the inside of the water pump, then to the outside of the a/c comp . then around the crank pulley, then up to the inside of the tensioner, then up around the outside of the PS pump. It will be easier to put the belt around all the pulleys except the alternator, release the tensioner and with the belt loose, slide it over the alt pulley. GOOD LUCK. I hope you fixed the problem with the belt, they just dont fall off for no reason. ck tensioner pulley, water pump.
