How do you fix the fan belt on a 1991 Mercury Capri?
ok there isn't a fan belt. there is a belt that does the altanator and water pump, and another belt that does ac/power steering. your better off replaceing both at the same time. you have to just loosen the bolts that go to the part and some of them you can only see from under neath the car. then you should be able to take both off and replace them. its a pain in the butt to get the v belt back on. very tight fit
Yes, there is an alternator belt. Yes, there is a power steering belt. However, the alternator belt is commonly referred to as a fan belt. As he said, the v belt (that is, the fan/alternator belt) has a very tight fit. If you loosen the alternator enough, though, it's not too hard to put on.The first thing you do is take off the power steering belt. You have to loosen the belt to do this, though. Once you've taken off the belt, loosen the alternator. Once it is moving freely, the alternator belt will come off relatively easily, especially if you have a screwdriver or a tool designed for that purpose (it has a name, but I remember not what it is). Now put the new alternator belt onto the pulleys made for it (you will probably need the afformentioned tool for this; I have every time, as far as I remember). Tighten the alternator and make SURE that the belt is also tight. If the belt is not tight enough, it will break and you can have a very, very bad problem on your hands. When that is done, put back on the power steering belt, or put on the new one, if you do them both at the same time (as he said, it's a good idea). You will probably need the tool used on the alternator belt to do this. Once you've made sure that the belt is fit properly onto the pulleys, tighten it.Now you're done, or, at least, I hope you are. Good luck!
You may have a serpentine belt on that car. I believe they had an electric fan. The serpentine belt is black and you can see it by your alternator, A/C compressor, etc. Under the hood of your car should be sticker on how to route the belt. You can look at that sticker and then see where your belt goes. There is no fan belt on a 1991 Nissan 300zx. The fan is directly driven…
Remove the fan shroud remove the radiator remove the fan there is a fan in front of the radiator fan, loosen the sway bar on that and lower it a little so you can remove that belt loosen the alternator sway bar belt should be loose... replace belt reverse to put everything back you will need a ratchet and 10mm socket keep track of your bolts. Good luck!
Do you need to remove the fan shroud when replacing the serpentine belt on a 1992 mercury grande marquis?
you should have three belts total. Going from the fan towards the distributer the first belt should be the power steering, then the actual fan belt, then the third belt is the alternator / a/c belt, i hope this is helpful for you! So for the answer to your question, there is one fan belt, the second belt in from the fan!
there should be a routing diagram on or near the top of the radiator. get a long pry bar and depress the idler arm to put slack in the old belt and remove it. installation is the reverse of removal, routing per the diagram. it'll take some fanaggling but you can actually get the belt around fan with out removing it.
I am in the process of replacing all the drivebelts on my 1991 Toyota 4x4 pickup 3.0 liter with AC & PS. In order to remove the belts, I had to first remove the radiator hose which effectively blocks easy removal of the fan and fan shroud. Then I had to remove the fan and fan shroud. Fortunately, the power steering belt is the first (front of vehicle) in the series of three drivebelts (power…
