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.

How do you replace a serpentine belt in a 1999 Chevy Metro?

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.

How do you change the alternator on a 1993 Mitsubishi Diamante?

Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available, for FREE, in the reference section(make copies of the correct sections) read up and fix it like a PRO! :) good luck-Dave ---------- First, disconnect the battery and unplug the alternator, then loosen and remove the main serpentine belt. The alternator is bolted onto the engine quite securely with a bracket that runs over the top. This bracket has two bolts on top, and one on the side that's quite difficult to get to (use a small ratchet). Hold the assembly in place so it doesn't fall while you unbolt the mounting bracket from the alternator; remove the bracket, then the alternator. To re-install the alternator, put the alternator in first, then bolt the bracket back onto it. Bolt the whole thing securely onto the engine, then replace the serpentine belt (don't make it too tight!). Plug the alternator in, reconnect the battery, and it should be good to go! ~Pengauin

How do you change the alternator in a 1994 Lincoln Continental?

Re: replacing a 95 alternator (Same for 94?) ---- It's a bit awkward to work in there, espesially on the front of the engine but you are correct, the Alternator is one of the top end components with only two things in the way....The Power steering fluid Reservoir and the Coolant Recovery Bottle need to be dis-mounted and set aside.The Alternator is 'solid mounted' meaning is not on a pivot mount for belt adjustment. The belt is the serpentine, single belt with a separate tensioner.There is one solid mount bracket on the top of the Alternator that gets completely removed, then two more bolts from the lower end of the Alternator to the front of the engine.Wires disconnect, and it's out..Reverse all that and it's back in
