1997 Lexus LS400 wiring problems when it's wet outside


Insure the drive belt is turning the alternator properly. When it is wet outside the belt will slip quite a bit more if it is not tensioned properly. Also ....the ground from the battery post to the engine block needs to be checked to insure a great connection. Any resistance in the ground cable OR the positive cable from the alternator to the positive post of the battery will cause your issue....dampness will make these issues worse.
Would check output of alternator when damp/wet outside...and find a tech that KNOWS how to perform a voltage drop test on the battery cables and the alternator output wire that goes back to the battery.

Hope this helps!

    1. Alternator belt (new): 86-103 lbs. (383-461 N)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 68-86 lbs. (304-383 N)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 110-132 lbs (491-589 N)

  2. Using the deflection method, apply moderate pressure (about 22 lbs) halfway between the pulleys, and compare with the following specifications.
    1. Alternator belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    2. Alternator belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
    3. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (new): 0.31-0.35 in. (8-9mm)
    4. A/C compressor and power steering pump belt (used): 0.35-0.39 in. (9-10mm)
  3. If the specifications fall outside the ranges given, adjust the belt as follows:
    1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and adjusting bolt.
    2. Adjust the alternator to get the specified belt deflection.
    3. Tighten the bolts, then recheck the tension.

How do I Change the alternator belt on my mazda?


IF IT IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE OTHER BELTS, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS UNBOLT THE TOP OF THE ALTERNATOR, AND PUSH IT IN TO LOOSEN THE BELT FOR REMOVAL! IF IT IS IN BACK OF THE BELTS (ESPECIALLY A SERPENTINE BELT) YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT FIRST! THERE WILL BE A TENSION PULLEY HOLDING THE BELT TIGHT! YOU'LL NEED TO USE A WRENCH TO PULL THE TENSION PULLEY TOWARD YOU TO LOOSEN BELT! WATCH HOW YOU REMOVE IT, BCUS YOU'LL NEED TO PUT IT BACK ON THE SAME WAY! THEN REMOVE, AND REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR BELT AS BEFORE, THEN REPLACE THE SERPENTINE BELT!

How to adject generater blet on 1972 VW


To adjust the belt tension on a 72 you can slightly loosen the bolts that hold the alternator in place, pull the alternator towards the outside of the loop the belt makes, then re-tighten the alternator bolts. If you can't get enough tension through the adjustment you'll need to replace the belt.

Smooth wheel on the timing belt rattles butnut in middle is tight


The timing belt is not on the outside of engine. What you are describing might be the belt tensioner. The bolts you speak of in alternator are the mounting bolts. If the "smooth" wheel is vibrating, then replace the wheel. That is the belt tensioner.

Alternator belt


I had the same problem, repeatedly for more than a year. Turns out that the first time the belt broke and was replaced, something in the piece that the belt raps around was moved very slightly out of line. The mechanic told me that the piece has to eb calibrated perfectly; otherwise the belt will keep loosening and breaking. The piece--I think it was the bracket (or whatever) on the water pumpt that holds the belt onto the pump--was reclaibrated, and, voila! No further problems, at not yet.
