There is a spring from the transmission to the plastic cover. You will see the hole in the trans and you will see a groove in the plastic cover. The adjustment is at the handle, a plastic wheel turns to add tension.

How to tighten alternator belt on 1993 pathfinder


Four cylinder engine - loosen bottom pivot bolt on alternator, then loosen top bolt and pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten belt. When at proper tension, tighten top bolt to hold tension and tighten bottom pivot bolt.
Six cylinder engine - loosen the lock bolt at the bottom of the alternator, then use the adjustment bolt (perpendicular to the lock bolt) to tighten the belt tension. Once properly tensioned, tighten the lock bolt.

How do i tighten a pajero fan belt???


Normally the slack can be tightened by releasing the idler pulley and using a lever to hold back the belt to the desired level, the bolts can be tightened once again. however if this has happened once before it will be wise to get the belt replaced. Get a helping hand when the belt has to be held back.

Belt is off center


Tighten the rear adjusting bolts until the walk belt it tight enough to lift about 1.5 inches at the sides of the walk belt. After you do this, Turn the treadmill on to speed setting 2, and be ready to tighten the side that the belt is closest to.( if the belt is against one side, start with that side) Tighten only 1/2 a turn at a time and watch the belt start to move. It wont take much once it starts to move. Only tighten each side ( if necessary) dont loosen the bolts. Once the belt is in the middle, leave it alone. The belt is now adjusted. You may see it travel to one side, breifly, but it will return on its own.


Hope this helps

Belt is slipping


This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

How do i tighten a loose screeching belt on an '01 accent gs 1.6L


The belt is adjusted by the position of the alternator. Loosen the bottom mounting bolts. Loosen the adjusting bolt in the top bracket & using a suitable lever, pry the alternator outwards until the belt is tight. Do not tighten it too tight. you should be able to deflect the belt down about 3/4 -1" when tightened. Hold the bar to maintain this tension on the belt and tighten the top adjusting bolt. Re-tighten the two bottom bolts. Check the deflection of the belt once more to ensure it is not to tight.

Need to tighten alternator belt


The alternator is held in place by two bolts.

Top and bottom bolts - 12 mill bolts.

By loosening the bolts (especially the top bolt) you will find that the alternator can be manipulated forward and backwards alongs it housing (guides). To tighten the alternator belts all you need to do is push the alternator away from the tensioners and tighten the belt as required.

Once the belt is taut, but not stetched, simply tighten the two bolts up again and check that the belt has not lost its tension when you where tightening the belts.

Once the belt is taut tighten the 2 bolts and you are away.

I can not tighten the alternator belt on my hyundai 2001 300 xg


If it doesn't have an automatic belt tensioner there will be an adjustment screw on either the alternator or power steering pump (possibly both if there are two belts). Loosen the two mounting bolts securing the accessory (ie: alt or p/s pump) and tighten the screw. Once adequate tension is on the belt tighten the mounting bolts.

Sometimes the adjustment is on a seperate pulley and not one of the accessories. If this is the case, loosen the center bolt on the pulley and tighten the adjustment screw. Once tight, tighten the center bolt.

If you have an automatic tensioner there are no adjustments to make the belt tighter.
