Belt tentioner / serpintine belt


Most tensioners have a place to put, in most cases,your 1/2"
long ratchet,so you can pull against the tension & move it,
to get the play you need

Some vehicles will have some other size hole for you to
pull on it

If it is just a bolt that gets loosened,then you don't have it
completely free enough to get the belt on

You should be able to tell looking at it if it is spring loaded
If so you don't loosen any mounting bolts

Look for a square hole not too far from the pulley

How do I replace an alternator/fan belt on a 1984 Nissan datsun Pickup?


#1 loosen the Alternator drive Belt adjusting bolt, and remove the belt. Install new belt,tighten the adjusting bolt to give you the propper belt tention. At the longest span between two polleys at the midway point press down with your thumb and you should not be able to move the belt more than 1/4 of an inch. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

Need to change alternator belt on 2005 dodge neon.


First you need to take off the other belt. Turn the tentioner (2), usually a 3/8 ratchet, and remove the belt.

Second, you need to loosen the alt tension bolt, almost straight down from the (1). Push alternator toword motor and remove belt. Installation is the opposite.

Hope that helps

1993 NISSAN MAXIMA HOW CHANGE ALETERNATOR


Suggest replacing all the belts also. 1st belt, remove coolant reservoir. Loosen the pulley next to the res. then there is a tension bolt behind it. get under the car, the alternator is right there on the passenger side. possible under a small shield. Loosen all the bolts on the alternator, then there is a tentioner on the alternator. Loosen that, remove belt, then take out the rest of the bolts, along with the plug and the ground wire to the alternator. for the P/S belt, loosen the other pulley 14mm, and then the tention bolt is another 12mm.

How do i replace the serpentine belt on my 2000 jeep cherokee with air conditioning.


There is a tensioner pulley on the drivers top side of the engine. Loosen the bolt on the pulley about a turn or so (I believe it's 15mm). Then loosen the adjusting bolt above the pulley until tension is off the belt. Remove the belt and route the new belt in the same manner the old one was. There should be a diagram under the hood showing the routing. If not, draw a quick one up before removing the old belt. Tighten the adjusting bolt until there is sufficient tension on the belt and lock down the pulley bolt.

Alternator


The tension is set automatically with the belt tensioner. It looks like a pulley. You put a wrench or socket on the bolt in the center of the tensioner and apply pressure. It is spring loaded. As you apply the pressure it will release the tension on the belt for removal or installation.
