Are you sure the belt tensioner spring is strong enough to keep the belt tight ?
You should have to move the tensioner to put the belt on, then it should keep the belt tight when you finish.

85 chevy celebrity. replaced alternator. that one squealed 2. got another. still hear a squeel. does not squeel when belt is off.


ALTERNATOR BELT NEED ADJUSTING AND REPLACING IT GLAZED. WHEN DRIVE BELT GET GLAZED SHINY CAUSE IT TO SLIP AND SQUEAL.REPLACE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. AND ADJUST IT DRIVE BELT TENSION BY TIGHTEN THE UNTIL YOU CAN PRESS DOWN ON THE BELT IN THE LONGEST RUN. YOU NEED TO PRESS DOWN BELT AND GET A 1/4 TO 1/2 INCH DEFLECTION IN BELT.THE BELT CANT BE TOO TIGHT WHERE WHEN YOU PRESS DOWN AT IT WONT GIVE IN NONE TOO TIGHT, WILL CAUSE PREMATURE ALTERNATOR BEARING FAILURE IF DRIVE BELT TOO TIGHT.

Can i adjust accesory belt tension without a guage?


Serpentine belts?....yes. Absolutely. Timing belts...no. Drive belts should be tight, but not too tight. If too tight, it could cause noise because of the pressure put on the affected pulley bearings. Too loose can cause poor charging of the alternator, lose of power steering when the wheel is cut to much either way, or squeeling.

I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 car. What steps I am suppose to do.


First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

Is it ok if the belt i get for my car is a bit tighter than the stock. i have upgraded alternator pulley so i got 1 but its really tight and the tensioner is all the way down holding the belt tight ......


It'll be fine....the only thing would be to check it often. A tighter belt will often wear a little quicker than a properly fitting one.....by the way, you want a belt that is tight rather than a loose one. The only problem having an extremely tight or overly tight belt is it can put undo wear on pulley bearings.

The belt will not get tight. the pully needs to be


When looking at the belt system the pully would be the one that actually puts pressure on the belt. Adjust it so that it sits closer to the belt when not depressed, this way when depressed it increases the "tightness" of your belt.

How to put the alternater belt back on?


slacken the alternator bolts then slip the belt on the pulleys,using a long screwdiver behind the alternator,lever it out to tighten belt so that the longest part of the belt between pulleys has 1/2 inch movement(too tight and your alternator will need new bearings very soon...)then do up the bolts,check belt tension after all bolts tight to confirm not to tight/loose.

My fan belt on my bmw 525 td keeps cumming off nd i dont now haw to put it on and keep it tight eney ansers pleez


The fan/serpentine belt is usually held tight with either spring loaded tension or the pressure put on it by the alternator. If it's the the spring loaded tensioner it has to be pressing against the outside of the belt to keep it tight as it passes around the pulleys.
If it's the alternator that keeps the belt tight, you'll need to find the bolt holding the alternator, usually the top side of the unit. You will notice a curved opening where the bolt passes through, loosen the bolt and keeping the belt tight pull the alternator out away from the engine to put pressure on the belt. Tighten the bolt and check the belt's tension by pressing on it with your finger it should only move slightly, usually less than half an inch. It is important to check the tension after it runs for some time to make certain the belt hasn't slipped or stretched, some stretching is normal as it heats up. If the belt is too tight it can damage the alternator or other parts. A repair manual is also available at the auto parts store to assist you in the procedure average cost 20 to 50 dollars depending on the brand Haynes or Chilton. Hope this helps, good luck
