How do I locate the tensioner for the alternator belt on a 2003 kia spectra?


I wondered the same thing and looked for days on end. To my surprise, there is no tension pulley for the 2003 Kia Spectra. The Kia 4 cyl has two (2) belts. The outside belt services the power steering and air conditioning. The inside belt (the one you want to service) services the alternator and water pump. The alternator tension is set by two (2) adjustment screws located on the alternator. One screw is used as a locking bolt and the upper bolt is used as the adjuster. You must first loosen the locking bolt which is located between the belt and the alternator housing. Loosen about 6 to 8 travels of the wrench (size 13mm), then tighten the upper bolt until you have no more than 1/2 inch of movement in the belt when you press down. After the correct tension is achieved, tighten the locking bolt and your done. As long as you're down there, you might as well check the outer belt as well. Same principle, one locking and one adjuster. Good Luck, Fred

Need to fit a fan belt on a toyota fortuner v6


Park the vehicle in the well lighted work space and open the hood. Let the vehicle cool completely before you begin repairing. Locate the belt diagram under the hood to give you a visual guide.
Remove cover from over the alternator with your adjustable wrench.
Locate the hexagon bolt in the middle of the alternator. Securely place your socket wrench on the bolt and turn it counterclockwise. The belt will begin loosening. The more you turn the nut, the more slack you will have to remove the belt.
Pull the belt off of the alternator and continue removing it from around the other pulleys. Track your steps while removing the belt, because installing the new belt is the reverse of installation.
Install the new belt on to the alternator looping it onto the other pulleys.
Tighten the bolt on the alternator until the belt is semi tight around all of the pulleys.
Guide the belt with your free hand while you are tightening it so it doesn't come off the pulleys.

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 to tighten fan belts on 1997 Subaru 2.2 Legacy


    there are no fan belts - there is a alternator/power steering belt and a air conditioning belt. There is an adjustment bolt that you will need to tighten. You want to have roughly 1/4" of slack or so after tightening the belt. I recommend taking a look at a service manual for the location.

    HOW TO INSTALL ALTERNATOR BELT DIAGRAM


    ALTERNATOR/WATER PUMP DRIVE BELT(courtesy of autozone)

    On most of the 1981-88 model year engines covered in this information, the alternator/water pump drive belt is tensioned by a screw type tensioner, which makes precise tension adjustment easy.

    1. On 1981-87 models, loosen the locknut, located on the locking screw or lockbolt-located in a slotted portion of the outboard alternator mounting bracket.
    2. On 1988 models, loosen the T-bolt, located in the center of the disc shaped portion of the outboard alternator bracket.
    3. Tighten or loosen the drive belt tensioning bolt. This bolt is tightened to increase belt tension and loosened to decrease it.
    4. When the belt tension is correct, tighten the lockbolt.

    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.

    Step by step instructions replace alternator on a 2000 Lincoln Continental


    Hello, first of all disconet your battery. Then locate your alternator and remove the wiring. You will then see two bolts, one is for your fan belt adjustment, take this bolt out and dont loose it. The second bolt is much longer, this is the bolt that allows you to move your alternator back and forth so that you can tighten your fan belt. Remove this and as you pull it out hold onto yoour alternator as it will now come out. You then position new alternator sliding long bolt back in place. Do it up but not tightly at this point. Replace the smaller bolt and make sure that you put your fan belt back on. Pull the alternator tighly onto the fan belt before tightening the smaller bolt. Once the fan belt is tight you can then tighten the long bolt. Reconct your wiring, reconect you battery and you should be right to go. If theres a squealing sound when you start the car you may have to retighten your fan belt, you dont need to take any wiring off to do this. I hope this is helpfull.

    I have a 1991 dodge colt vista 2.0 l engine, and need to know where to get info on replacing ( how to or what to do ) the alternator belt. thanks


    There is a curved bracket that the alternator is bolted to. This allows you to adjust the belt tension. Loosen this bolt and locate the other bolt that mounts the alternator to your engine. Loosen this one, as well. Now swing your alternator in the direction that will allow you to free the belt and remove it. Put the new belt on and swing the alternator to get good tension on the belt. Tighten both of the bolts on the alternator, but leave them loose enough that you can still adjust the belt's tension. Now use a bar to pry the alternator in the direction that will increase the tension on the belt a little bit and tighten the bolt on the curved bracket with your free hand. Now, tighten the other bolt. Start the car and verify that the belt has decent tension and does not slip (this will cause premature wear, squealing and bad charging). If everything is good, you should be all set. If it is too tight or too loose, you will need to readjust the tension of the belt.

    Hope this helps,
    matt
