SOURCE: I need to replace the fan belt. Which pulleys does it go around?

Hi there,

My brother in law and I changed it without taking anything apart except the fan cover, what you'll need to do is gently use a crobar to release the tensioner pully directly below the alternator, and jam it a bit, then slowly release the old belt, if it's as worn as mine was you'll be fine. Then simply run the new belt starting from the bottom up. There's a great diagram on the weblink below.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: A gauge is recommended, but you can check belt tension with thumb pressure 89771g18.gif
Fig. 2: Loosen the component's mounting and adjusting bolts slightly to remove or adjust the belt(s) 89771g19.gif
Fig. 3: Push the component toward the engine and slip off the belt 89771g21.gif
Fig. 4: Slip the new belt over the pulley 89771g22.gif
Fig. 5: Pull outward on the component and tighten the mounting bolts 89771g23.gif
Fig. 6: Accessory mountings found on 6.2L diesel engines 89771g24.gif

  1. Loosen the driven accessory's pivot and mounting bolts.
  2. Move the accessory toward or away from the engine until the tension is correct. You can use a wooden hammer handle, or broomstick, as a lever, but do not use anything metallic, such as a prybar.
  3. Tighten the bolts and recheck the tension. If new belts have been installed, run the engine for a few minutes, then recheck and readjust as necessary. It is better to have belts too loose than too tight, because overtight belts will lead to bearing failure, particularly in the water pump and alternator. However, loose belts place an extremely high impact load on the driven component due to the whipping action of the belt.

SOURCE: My 97 miata has been having terrible squeaking

The alternator is loading up too much for some reason.
Had the same issue on my friend's 2001 Mazda Protege. Turned out the voltage regulator in the alternator was faulty. Had the alternator rebuilt. A week later, it acted up again! There is apparently another issue, but I have not been able to figure it out.
Unfortunately, I don't have a clear answer for you, but, one's thing's for sure. Mazda has to stop using crappy Ford electrics in their cars.

I have a whining noise on my 2007 toyota tundra v6. It happens all the time. What could this be?


If coming from under the hood suspect a worn bearing from idler pulley... alternator... PS pump...AC compressor... tensioner pulley. You will need to remove the belt and spin all pulleys by hand to isolate the noisey one

Replace the alternator in a 2007 jeep compass limited


First..,Get new part and also a new belt if belt has never been changed..Make sure part is correct,Use safety glasses..Be sure engine is cold..,Notice sticker under hood that shows belt routing diagram..If there isn't a sticker you can hand draw your own..Disconnect battery ground cable..Remove serpentine belt..If you have never replaced a serpentine belt it will get you confused but it is VERY EASY..It should have a diagram of how it is removed on the sticker showing the belt..The salesman at the parts store can show you easier than I can tell you..After removing belt ..,inspect all pulleys for tightness or any type of wobble..Look for any small shines of metal fragments around pulleys..Spin pulleys to make sure they don't have a worn bearing noise and they spin freely......If one seems damaged now is the time to replace it...remove wiring from alternator carefully..Remove alternator mounting bolts..Use a small pry bar or large flat screwdriver to pry the alternator carefully at both sides upward to remove it..It has a small bushing inside of the lower mounting holes which slides in and out to help keep alternator in position.The old alternator is to be turned in to parts store for a core credit so try not to damage it....Lube mounting holes of new alternator so it will slide into place smoothly..Install bolts and get them all hand tight then snug each bolt lightly until they are all seated then torque each bolt..Torque tight but DONT OVER TIGHTEN..It should be no more than 40lbs.torque..carefully connect alternator wiring..Install new belt..Doublecheck everything..,remove all tools from under hood..Coonect battery and start engine for safety check...

2007 Volvo S40 will not start


alternator belt braking would not stall the engine but your dash would of lit up like a christmas tree. you will need to have the engine on an obd reader to see what the problem is. did the belt snap or was it stripped ? alternator over load would cut the engine out check the fuse in the engine fuse box there is 2, 80 amp fuse in there check these are fine.

Rattle noise coming from belt


this could be a bad pulley or alternator, you will need to remove the belt and spin the pulleys by hand to see which one is making noise, it could also be the ac compressor pulley, start there.

Whining sounds once engine is running and even when the AC is off!


most likley a pully. Remove the serpentine belt to see if it goes away. Then spin the pulleys by hand and feel for a clean spin.

Or its possible the alternator is being demanded on. When a battery is on its way out the alternator will whine trying to always keep it charged.

Remove the belt from any pulley. Go from pulley to pulley and make sure they are all free wheeling obviously you won't be able to turn the crank pulley. Spin your alternator pulley and listen to it. It should be silent and smoothe. If you hear any bearing noise from the tensioner, the alternator, the AC comppresor, I would do this soon, you've spent on belts what an alternator would cost.Also check the idler pulley if this is a serpentine type belt.

All belts came off , 1986 740 gle 4 cly. with air nedd to know diagram


On the 92, the belt closest to the engine goes around the power steering pump, water pump, and crankshaft pulley.

The second belt goes around the alternator and the crankshaft pulley.

The third belt goes around the a/c and crankshaft pulley.
