Loosen the bolt on the upper bracket at the top of the alternator. Pry with a piece of wood to pull the alt over until there is 1/4in deflection on the belt. If the belt is still too loose after you reach the end of the bracket, you will have to but a slightly smaller belt.

Why is my 04 kia not running. Every time I turn the key it keeps clicking


Your battery is low/dead. Charge or replace the battery. Maybe your altenator has died or the belt is loose on it and has caused your battery to die. Also possible that the battery's cables are loose and do not allow the altenator to charge it.

In severe cold weather my 04 coupe "screams" a


When you hear this scream, it is caused by the altenator working. The belt is loose. If you have a serpentine belt then the belt tensioner is weak. If the altenator has it's own belt , then there is an adjustment bolt or pulley to tighten the belt.

Change moter alt belt keeps breaking


Hi the altenator belt? if it keeps snapping then your altenator is rather starting to seize up or its not fitted correctly, normally if its squeking its to loose.

Spin the altenator by hand and see what it sounds like, if its hard to turn or noisey that the fault.

hope this helps.

Battery charges when idling but not at speed. 81 datsun


This sounds like the altenator belt is loose. When the altenator is under a load the magnetic field causes the altenator to require more fource to rotate. At higher engine rpms the belt can be slipping on the altenator pulley. There is one other possibility I can think of and that would be that the voltage regulator is faulty and and causing an overvoltage at higher engine speeds and therfore opening up the field circuit to prevent the altenator from over charging the battery this is a safety function of the regulator. I would check the belt first.

Tighten altenator belt, need help


Your car has a spring loaded belt tensioner. If the belt is loose it is either routed wrong or the tensioner is bad.

POWER TRAIN BELTS LOOSE AND DRAINING BATTERY.. WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO FIX THIS WITHOUT GOING TO A MAINTENANCE SHOP?


Since the Altenator is run off a serpentine belt with an auto tensioner, this may not be the issue, although an old, stretched out belt could be the issue. If it's the original battery it may need changed or the altenator may be failing. Both of these can be tested for free at a local parts store, like Autozone, and I think they can do it while still on the vehicle.
