I have a 93 Subie Loyale manual tranny. My belts started making a new noise last night. Want to tighten them, but I cannot see wher the bolt is to tighten due to lack of space to work, between the radiator fans and pulleys. Please help this desperate female. Thanks!

I own a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L ES. When i turn my car on the Auxiliary belt makes a squealing noise for a bit then it stops. But it doesnt always make this noise, and it has something to do with...

hi there, here is what i have found for you, i hope it helps:
  • Look at where the drive belts are located on your Mitsubishi Galant. Depending on models, you may need to jack up the vehicle to access the bolts for the belts.

  • Find the bolt assembly for the belt. This bolt structure will be on or near the main component that the belt serves. Look at all of the pulleys around which the belt winds, and you will find a bolt system to adjust tension. For an alternator belt, the bolt system is by the alternator. For a power steering belt, look near the power steering pump.
  • Find the lock nut that holds the long adjustment bolt in place and use your wrench to loosen it. This is the bolt the loosens the belt tension so that you can remove it.
  • Turn the adjustment bolt. Turning the adjustment bolt moves the component either toward the engine in order to loosen belt tension, or away from the engine in order to tighten belt tension.
  • Slip off the old belt and install the new one, once the belt tension is released. Make sure the belt is correctly seated on all pulleys.
  • Turn the adjustment bolt the other way to bring the component away from the engine and add belt tension. Test the belt for correct tension by pressing on it and checking deflection.
  • Tighten the adjustment lock bolt and the pivot bolt, when the belt has the right tension.
  • cheers

    Can not tighten the serpentine belt

    The screeching is probably from the belt being loose and the wheels spinning on the belt You may want to get a new belt and before you replace it make sure that the automatic belt tensioner is working correctly put a wrench on the wheel with bolt and make sure it moves back and forth should feel tensionlike a heavy duty spring attached to it then make sure that you route the new belt correctly look on hood for a diagram or invest in a book that shows the correct route

    I need to change the alternator belt on my 93 mitz...3000 GT sl. I have no turbo. I do have manual tranny and standard air condition, and two wheel drive. How do I adjust the tension? Thanks for any help...

    Take the drivers wheel off, remove the plastic covers (two of them), one has screws and 10mm bolts holding it in place and the other one has 12mm bolts (one hidden behind the first panel). The belt tension is on the lower right of the belts you will see. The center nut of the tnesioner pulley has to first be broken loose, and then you take a 12mm wrench and work the tensioner UP to tighten the belt. Once you get the tensioner pulley setup, retighten the center nut of the pulley and you are done. Good luck.
