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 do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


    Hello there,
    To replace the alternator in your car:
    Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
    Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
    Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
    Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
    Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
    Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
    Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
    All the best. Elect_Comp

    2002 Porsche Boxster - had squealing coming from


    Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
    After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

    Do you have step by step instructions on how to change out an alternator on a 2002 Chevy S-10 with a 4.3 liter engine ( 4wd if that matters ). THANKS


    Not specific to S-10 truck, but here you go.
    Before you start, you might want to make a sketch, or take a couple of digital photos of alternator wiring and belt routing to make reassembly easier.
    Disconnect negative (-) battery cable from battery.
    Find serpentine belt tensioner pully. Should be a square hole in arm that holds that pulley. Insert a 3/8" socket wrench or breaker bar into hole to remove tension on belt.
    Remove belt from alternator pulley.
    Diconnect all wires from the rear of the alternator.
    Remove alternator mounting bolts, make note of order and location of any nuts/washers/spacers.
    Remove old alternator.
    Installation is reverse of removal.

    Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
    Remove serpentine belt.
    remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
    replace reverse of removal.
    4 out of 10 difficulty.
    Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
    See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
    While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.
