For the correct serpentine belt, it's probably asking you the amperage of the alternator, correct? Your best bet is to see if you can find any kind of part number off the existing alternator. Then take that number with you to a shop, and they might be able to find out the type of alternator you have. If you can't find any numbers, it makes life a little harder. What i'd do is try going to some online parts suppliers, like partsamerica, or rockauto. Look up the alternator and compare the pictures of the parts they have. Most times the different amped alternators will have different connectors, or look different all together. Thus allowing you to isolate the type you have. Good luck.
what are the correct steps to remove the serpentine belt that runs to the alternator on a 2001 Toyota AvalonWas that an ANSWER!? I assume the question is, "How do I remove and replace the serpentine belt on a 2001 Toyota Avalon". (You can remove it with a good sharp knife!)
The correct saying is "all intents and purposes".
The alternator is basically the tensioner on a three cylinder Metro. The bolt that holds the alternator tight to its adjustment bracket must be loosened. You may need to pry on the alternator to slide it so the belt will be loose enough to remove. After you have removed the old belt and put the new one in the correct way, the alternator will definitely need to be pried on to tighten belt, then tighten bolt on adjuster. Just be careful what you pry on.
a serpentine belt if installed correctly has a blet tensioner. this will apply correct tensionwithout any adjustments
It is important to have the belts of a car put in the right direction. This serpentine belt goes around the AC compressor, above the AC tensioner,under the crank pulley, around the power steering, over the alternator pulley, under the idle pulley, around the w/p,and behind the tensioner.ÊÊ
Need to know what year it is to answer correct.
30 -32 psi
It is not the entire equation, but for current practical purposes, it is correct. If an object is moving at relativistic speeds, it is not correct. It requires you use relativistic mass, which is based on the velocity relative to the speed of light. It is correct for any human purposes.
you need a serpentine belt tool, you can get one at auto zone or any part store. the alternator is on a pully system with a belt tensioner. place the tool in the tensioner and pull down, this releases the tension and the belt should come off. besure that you have the proper routing diagram and the correct belt for your engine size and year. Also if you don't want to buy s serpentine belt tool, you can use a 15MM wrench.
alternator belt on any vehicle should be tight enuff that you can push down about 1/8 of and inch on the longest straightest part of belt if engine has a serpentine belt, the belt tensioner will automatically keep belt at correct tension and you don't need to worry bout it unless your rensioner is not working correctly
A purpose can hardly be unintentional. The actual phrase is: "For all intents and purposes".
