Its likely the tenisinor was the cause of the alternator problem in the first place its a big ware part leeding cause of belt failure water pump alternator power steering and ac compressers . You would be wise to replace it 96 likely has never been done .And its far cheaper then all of the above parts 20 to 30 dollars

  4. Slip the drive belt off the alternator pulley.
  5. Remove the four air conditioning compressor mounting bolts.
  6. Remove the radiator fan and fan shroud.
  7. Move the air conditioning compressor forward.
  8. Disconnect the alternator harness connector.
  9. Remove the alternator mounting bolts, and lower the alternator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Hold the alternator in place and install the mounting bolts.
  2. Plug in the alternator harness connector.
  3. Move the air conditioning compressor back into location.
  4. Install the radiator cooling fan and shroud.
  5. Install the air conditioning compressor mounting bolts.
  6. Place the drive belt on the alternator pulley.
  7. Tighten the drive belt to the proper tension with the idler pulley.
  8. Install the splash guard.

I replaced the serpentine belt and now have a terrible screeching with the a/c is turned on.


A couple of things come to mind: if it wasn't screeching before replacing the belt, you may not have routed the belt properly - especially around the belt tensioner pulley; or the bearing on that pulley may need lubrication or replacement; or the A/C compressor bearing may have failed causing excessive resistance on the new belt resulting in screeching. Also, if the belt was not routed properly, the screeching may be coming from another belt-driven (power steering pump, water pump, etc.) but it doesn't sow up until you engage the A/C with its additional drag.

Fig. Fig. 4: Proper camshaft sprocket alignment for timing belt installation

  1. Install the crankshaft sprocket. Set the crankshaft sprocket to Top Dead Center (TDC) by aligning the notch on the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.
  2. Set the camshafts to align the timing marks on the sprockets.
  3. Move the crankshaft to 1 / 2 notch before TDC.
  4. Install the timing belt starting at the crankshaft, then around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets, and then around the tensioner pulley.
  5. Move the crankshaft sprocket to TDC to take up the belt slack.
  6. Install the tensioner to the engine block, but do not tighten.
  7. Using a torque wrench on the tensioner pulley apply 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm) of tighten to the tensioner pulley.
  8. With torque being applied to the tensioner pulley, move the tensioner up against the tensioner pulley bracket and tighten the fasteners to 275 inch lbs. (31 Nm).
  9. Remove the tensioner plunger pin. The tension is correct when the plunger pin can be removed and replaced easily.
  10. Rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions and recheck the timing marks. Wait several minutes and then recheck that the plunger pin can easily be removed and installed.
  11. Reinstall the front timing belt cover(s).
  12. Reinstall the engine mount bracket.
  13. Reinstall the right engine mount.
  14. Remove the floor jack from under the vehicle.

REpace alternator belt


if you mean serpentine belt, there is a tensioner pulley that keeps it tight. remember how it goes between everything for when you put the new one on. use the tensioner pulley to relieve the tension (it will move inward towards the engine) and while holding the pulley, slip the old belt off. then fit the new one around everything else before the tensioner pulley. then pull the tensioner pulley inwards again, slip the new belt over the tensioner pulley, then let it out slowly. make sure that all of the cogs on the belt are in the right place of the pulleys (if they arent, it will most likey slip into place when the engines starts but still might not want to chance it)

I need to replace the belt tensioner on a 2000 Chysler Caravan with a 3.0L engine, with a/c. I would appreciation a diagram for properly installing the serpentine belt, and some instructions on how to...


Hi, I have pasted the procedure for belt replacement below. To replace the tensioner as well, first take the belt off. Then remove the pulley from the tensioner. This will expose the single bolt that holds the tensioner on. Replace the tensioner and then the pulley (if replacing all). Then reinstall the belt.

Alternator/Power Steering Pump Belt
The alternator/power steering pump belt is provided with a dynamic tensioner to maintain proper belt tension.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the front of the vehicle and safely support it with jackstands.
  3. Remove the right front splash shield.
  4. Release tension by rotating the tensioner clockwise (use a box-end wrench on the tensioner bolt shown in the picture.
  5. Remove the belt and install a replacement.
  6. Proper belt tension is maintain by the dynamic tension.
  7. Install the right front splash shield. Lower the front of the vehicle.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

How to stop the airconditioning belt from screaming


If it's loose it can slip when the a/c comes on and screech.
If it's not loose but screeches when the a/c is on then the a/c clutch or compressor is locking up.
If it screeches any time the car is running it can be any of the pulleys. Take the belt off and see if any are hard to spin. Be sure to check the idler pulley also.

I need to replace the idler pulley/tensioner and the belt


When this idler wears out it makes a growling noise that changes with engine RPM. A Bad Idler Pulley May Wobble & Wear Out Your Serpentine Belt Prematurely. Get Rid Of That Horrible Noise & Change.

Remove the serpentine belt by using a breakover bar, ratcher or serpentine belt removal tool with the correct size socket for the pulley mounting bolt. Rotate tensioner arm to release tension. Remove the bel. Using the proper size socket, remove the tensiones mounting bolt and remove tensioner.

Before installing the new tensioner, make sure the mounting surface for the tensiones is clean and free rust or other obstructions. Find the locator pin hole and rotate the replacement tensiones until the locator pin and the hole line uo. Insert the pin into the hole. Reinstall the mounting bilt and torque down to tight fit.

Rotate the tensioner arm to install the serpentine belt. Make sure the belt is correctly fitted to all pulley in the drive system. Start the engine to check for any problems. Extreme care should be taken when reinstalling the serpentine belt because some of the pulleys are located in remote positions ans it is very hard to see that belt is seated properly in all of the grooves. If the belt isn't seated properly, the belt can "ride out" of the grooves and the belt can be damaged.

Also must review the ZJ Repair Manual Secc-7-Cooling-System for graphics references.

Hope helped with this. Remember rated this help. Good luck.

A whirring sound, maybe power steering pump


HI. You power steering fluid level may be low at this point, a quick inspection of the fluid level, will be in order, if possible. Once you have verified that the fluid level is sufficient, move on to the actual power steering belt and unit. Make sure the belt is tight, and rotating the pulley. If the fluid level is low, be sure to fill to specifications.

Now, If the pulley and belt are rotating without a wobble, and the fluid level is sufficient, this will lead to a failed pump. The pump should be replaced in this case. Make sure you exhaust all inspections points mentioned before replacing the pump.

CHECK LIST

  1. Check the power steering pump hoses for leaks
  2. Check the power steering pump pulley for lose fit or wobble during rotation,
  3. Check the power steering reservoir for proper level(add if needed)
  4. Check the power steering drive belt for the proper tension.

How do you remove the belt from the alternator


There is a tensioning bracket on the alternator

Undo the two fixed bolts , dont take them out , loosen the bolt on the tensioning arm and the whole alternator should swing back to allow the belt to be unshipped

You may need to use a lever to get it to move
