There should be a diagram of the belt routing under the hood somewhere. If you can't find it , it should be in the owners manual. If you don't have the manual, get a repair manual at the local bookstore, auto parts store, or online. Should find one for $20. countrycurt0

How to instal an alternater?


It all depends on the model and year. The alternator is on your main belt. It has two electrical connectors and probably a bolt or two for placement.

Replace alternator


The alternator belt on the 1999 Dodge Caravan also controls the air conditioner compressor, the water pump and the power steering pump. The belt is called a serpentine belt, and it is designed to fit around all of the accessory pulleys at the same time. As the belt travels around each accessory pulley, it enables the accessory to operate. Once the belt is damaged, cracked or frayed, you should change it before it breaks. If that happens, each of the accessories will stop working.

Open the hood and prop it up so that it does not fall. Engage the parking brake.

Inspect the top surface of the fan shroud for the serpentine belt routing diagram. Follow the routing instructions on the diagram to install the new belt.

Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine. The tensioner is directly below the alternator. Use the bolt that connects the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm to rotate the tensioner.

Turn the tensioner device counterclockwise to move the tensioner. This will relieve the tension from the belt. Once the belt has enough slack in it, slide the belt out from under the tensioner pulley.

Lift the belt off each accessory pulley. Slide the belt around the fan blades and out of the engine area.

Lay the old belt next to the new belt to ensure that the new belt is the correct width and length. Slide the belt around the fan blades and around the crankshaft pulley on the bottom of the engine.

Follow the belt routing diagram to position the belt around the air conditioner compressor pulley, the power steering pump pulley, the water pump pulley and the idler pulley. Once the belt is routed inside each accessory pulley, inspect the belt to make sure that it is securely inside the pulleys.

Crank the 1999 Dodge Caravan for 10 to 15 seconds to completely seat the belt ribs in the grooves on each accessory pulley. Shut the engine off and close the hood.

If the belt routing diagram for the 1999 Dodge Caravan is missing, use a pen and a notepad to draw the exact routing of the old belt and use it when installing the new belt.

How do I replace the alternator


Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

Possible leak in power steering system and bad power steering pump, already replaced pump once. high pitch wine while accelerating still there.


did you use the same pulley on the pump? sometimes a glaze forms on the contact surface for the belt. use 400 grit sandpaper to remove any glazing. also the belt may be glazed from the old pump being bad. maybe even contaminated with oil. remove the belt. clean well with brake cleaner, deglaze pullys, then install new belts. while the belts are off its a good time to check the berrings on the alternator, tensioner, idler and waterpump pulleys. just spin them, then try to wiggle them. if theres any rough or dry sound while spinning then they need to be replaced

How to install 03 ford focus alternator?


Removing the Alternator
Disconnect battery ground cable
Remove the ground wire (black) from the alternator
Disconnect the positive wire (red wire held on by a retaining nut) from the back of the alternator
Now disconnect the wire harness from the alternator
Remove the drive belt
NOTE: Some models use a belt tensioner that applies tension to the drive belt.
The best tool to use for this job is the serpentine belt too.
If you can borrow one from a neighbour you can get one at PartSource. (Part# 648451)
On other models you will have to loosen the adjusting bolt on the alternator bracket.
If you're not sure about how to remove the drive belt, visit your local PartSource for free print outs of vehicle specific instructions.
Take off the mounting bolts from the alternator bracket
Now remove the alternator from the engine compartment There. You've removed the alternator. How easy was that?
Installing Your New Alternator
Put the alternator in the engine compartment
Install the mounting bolts that connect the alternator to the alternator bracket
Connect the alternator wiring harness
Now connect the positive wire to the alternator
NOTE: Your new alternator should come with a retaining nut.
Remember to remove the nut before you install the positive wire.
If it doesn't keep the old nut.
Connect the ground wire to the alternator
Now install the drive belt
This is a great time to replace your old worn out belt. When inspecting your old belt look for signs of cracking, oil soaked, hard glazed, splitting or fraying.
All these signs mean it's time you replaced your drive belt.
If your vehicle no longer has the belt routing diagram under the hood, visit your local PartSource for a free print out of the belt routing diagram.
Reconnect the ground battery cable .

How do you replace the Serpentine Drive Belt


look at the pulleys, and locate the tensioner. It's usually in the center of all of the pulleys, and has the belt wrap around it, but isn't an obvious accessory like the alternator, PS pump, water pump, or crankshaft. The tensioner will have a square recess in it, allowing you to put a 3/8" square drive ratchet in it. When you turn it, you will notice that teh belt loosens. When it does, slip it off of the tensioner, but hold it in place for reference. Put the new belt on, routing it exactly like the old one, take out the old one, and load the tensioner exactly like you did when you loosened it. Ensure that the belt ribs are seated in the centers of all pulleys, and you are done.

The first thing you have to do is disconnect the battery. (Very important). Then you have to remove the serpentine belt that drives the alternator.It has a auto belt tensioner it will turn against the spring to remove the belt. You then remove the bolts that hold the alternator to the engine as well as the wires that are attached to it. Make sure when you reinstall the new alternator that you tighten the wires to it securely exactly as they came off the old one. Put the belt back on it. Hook up your battery cable. Your finished
