I have a 2002 mustang and it is making a squeaking noise and the battery light comes on. Both happen intermittently but I haven't had any change in the battery gauge. Do I need a new alternator?


the sound is either the alternator belt (as in way too loose), or bad bearings in the alternator and it seizes up intermittently and the belt screeches as it slides on the pulley. your gauge is telling you the amount of voltage at the battery, but the light is a charge indicator and it is pointing you to the alternator.

How to replace alternator belt


Find the belt tensioner bolt and loosen it. There will probably be two other bolts that need to be loosened (just loosened not removed). Move the alternator to its " most slack position" pull the old belt off anf fit the new one. Push the alternator with a broomstick or something similar to tension the belt. (Be sure to push against a solid part of the alternator or you could break it) tighten the tensioner bolt. the tension should be set so that you can push the belt in about 20mm between the pullies with your finger. If the new belt squeels when you start the car the belt is too loose. Tighten the other two mounting bolts.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR BELT ON 2004 ELANTRA


As long as you have BOTH alternator bolts loose, you just "pry" it until the belt is tight.
I say "pry" but of course you dont want to be TOO rough with your alternator! They dont have an actual tensioner!
Good luck

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    How do i change the alternator belt


    Get a new belt from an auto part store.

    Let's assume you have ramps. It may be easier to get at the alternator from underneath.

    The alternator has to be loosened. There's the tensioner bolt on the top side (probably an M8) that usually has to be removed and the pivot bolt where the alternator is attached to the engine (another M8) loosened.

    This will allow the alt to move towards the engine, and the old belt can be removed.

    Fit the new belt, and reset the tensioner so the belt is not loose on the pulleys. Don't forget to tighten the pivot bolt again.

    The belt in my car is not moving. The pulley attached to the altenator is not moving


    ...is the engine running?
    If the belt is moving but the alternator pulley isn't, it's seized and the alternator needs to be replaced.
    If the belt isn't moving at all, it probably slipped off the crank pulley.

    THE BELT BROKE OFF TO THE WATER PUMP TO THE ALTERNATOR


    Yea...they do that, you'll need to have a new one. Make sure that you don't have a seized up alternator or water pump by giving it a spin by hand. I everything turns easily you just need a new belt. BTW you can drive it a short distance (to get of to side of the road) but don't go very far it will over heat.

    Fto fitting alternator belt


    loosen these 2 bolts in this order 8a9e629.jpg once the 1st one is loose, loosen the 2nd one until the belt is loose enough to remove the belt(if its still on). then spin the alternator pulley by hand to see if it is seized up. its a good idea to check the tensioner pulley too.
