The alternator is held in place by either 1 long bolt at the bottom or 2 bolts one for each mounting lug. It is adjusted by a slotted strap that has a bolt holding the alternator in place. If the alternator is coming loose all the time place a flat washer and a spring washer under the head of the bolt in the adjusting strap. The timing belt is a tooth belt and will not squeal but a loose drive belt for the alternator, .power steering or a/c will make a noise if not tensioned properly. Belts have to run at the top of the pulley and not on the bottom as this is an indication of worn pulleys or incorrect belt in use.

Replacing alternator belt on 2007 1.3 cdti combo is it easy to do

Loosen alternator, push it towards the block until belt is loose. Pull the belt off and replace. Once the new belt is on push the alternator away from the block until belt is tight and tighten bolt/bolts. You might need a bar to keep tension on the alternator while tightening bolt/bolts.

Simpson Encore 605 agitator bolt comes loose - does it need loctite?

The wear is preventing it from tightening correctly, loctite won't be a long term fix, it will still come loose again due to the forces put on the bolt by the vibrations of the agitator. The only way to fix it is to replace the agitator.

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.

    I replaced the front brake pads on my 1999 fatboy i tightened both caliper bolts but when i ride i can hear a slight rattling sound coming from the caliper. please help. ...

    Did the original pads have anti rattle springs attached to them? If they did, you should have transferred them onto the new pads. The rattling isn't dangerous by any means, but it can be annoying.

    The toilet seat is very loose and I can't figure out how to tighten it. Please help! Its about to come off completely Thanks

    Usually there are plastic caps that snap down over the bolt head.
    Shut toilet lid and get down close with a flashlight.

    Seat attaches in two places.
    Reach underneath and you can feel two bolts with nuts.
    You don't need to see them, just feel with your hand.

    The bolt head is covered with a plastic cover.
    The cover is added for aesthetic purpose only.
    Use small screwdriver or fingernail file or nail or scissors to pry up the cover and reveal bolt head.

    Use bigger screwdriver to tighten bolts.
    You may have to keep one hand on underside to hold nut while turning bolt clockwise.
    Another trick is use hand to push bolt all the way up, and then finger tighten bolt most of the way, and use screwdriver for last few turns.

    Tighten bolts good and tight, but don't overdo it.
    Bolts will come loose again and you can tighten more later.
