your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and Power Steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it. your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and power steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it.

How do you change the alternator belt on a 1990 Geo Storm?

first you must loosen a 12mm bolt behind the pulley of the ac compressor, its a little tough to get to, but you can get it with an extended wrench, then loosen up the ac compressor bolt, pry it forward if it doesnt do it automatically, take your timing belt off, then go to your alternator bolt unerneath the alternator, loosen it rock it forward and pull off your belt, obviously reverse everything you just did to put it back together P.S. you can pretty much rebuild the geo storm engine with a 12mm wrench, lol

How do you change the belts on a 1993 Geo Storm?

The power steering pump has two adjuster bolts. Loosen the top bolt, and then the bolt underneath the pump (facing from passenger side) to give the belt some slack. The alternator has two adjuster bolts and one bolt to hold the bracket to the alternator. Loosen the bottom bolt (next to the belt), then loosen the top adjuster bolt. You should then be able to move the alternator towards the motor to slack the belt.


Is there an alternator belt adjuster on a 1994 Geo Prism 1.8?

If the alternator is driven by a drive belt, the answer is yes. You adjust the tension by loosing the bolts on the alternator mounting brackets and sliding the alternator until the proper tension, (around 1/4" deflection at mid point of the belt) is achieved. If however it has a Serpentine Belt driving the alternator, then there is no adjustment. Tension is held by the idler pulley. If it is loose then the belt is worn out, the idler tensioner is defective, or both.
