if you remove the moter Mount it is more accessible.
Assuming you have a serpentine belt on that 3.3L engine, the tension on the alternator would be controlled by the idler (tension) pulley. The alternator is stationary.
Changing the alternator on a Zafira is jsut like changing an alternator on any popular late model car. Unbolt it, make sure the belt comes off the pulley, and install a new alternator. Make sure to adjust the pulley to keep the correct tension on the belt
There is no fixing it. It must be replaced.
Loosen the tensioner pulley. Put the belt around the alternator pulley and the tensioner pulley. Move the tensioner pulley to the right until the belt is tight. Tighten the tensioner pulley.
Buy a Chevy!!!! That was a big help. Most but not all serpentine belt systems have a spring loaded tension pulley that just holds constant tension on the belt. If there is a tension pulley, it will be the one pulley that is not attached to anything like the alternator or AC. After that, the alternator is the most likely to be the one that adjusts.
Most cars now have a serpentine belt that drive the alternator, water pump, power steering unit, etc. The belt tension pulley is a spring loaded pulley that keeps the proper tension on all these units. It can be moved to release the tension in order to remove the belt.
There is no idle pulley on 1995 GC's with 4.0 Inline 6. To replece the serpentine belt; 1) Draw a diagram of the existing routing. 2) Loosen the alternator. 3)Remove old belt and compare to the new belt. 4) Install new belt. 5) Tighten new belt by tightening alternator. on the 5.2 and 5.6 just rotate tension pulley to the right if you are standing in front of Jeep install and release the tension pulley and let it tighten
You have to loosen the tension on the belt by loosen the nut normally found on the pulley located by the motorblock, manifold or even by the alternator pulley it's self.
Look at the top and left of the motor. It's easy to get to. The tension pulley is right below the alternator.
Yes, it is used to adjust the tension on the A/C compressor. Looking into the engine compartment from the passenger side it is to the left of the alternator. To adjust tension you need to loosen the bolt which holds the pulley and then adjust the bolt which is directly above the pulley. Once you have proper tension tighten the pulley bolt.
Loosen the tensioner pulley. The alternator belt will become loose. Take off the belt. Remove the wiring harness from the alternator. Remove the retaining bolts from the alternator. Remove the alternator. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
There is a tension pulley to the left of the alternator. Put a 19mm socket with a torque wrench on the pulley nut. Turn the nut in a counter-clockwise direction. This will lift the pulley away from the belt and allow you to slip it off. Install is the reverse of removal.
loosen the tension on the belt with the tension pulley, remove the belt then disconnect your wires from the alternator then take the 3-4 bolts, holding the alternator on, off. then do the opposite to put the new one back on
Release the tension using a wrench etc from the idler pulley.
All you do is look for the tension pulley and tighten it, see below
first disconnect the battery - use a long breaker bar and socket to take tension off the tension pulley and at the same time remove the belt from the alternator pulley. disconnect the wires to the alternator make note of their positions. Then remove the 3 mounting bolts from the alternator.
remove the old one, remove the drive pulley. install the drive pulley on the new alternator,lock the shaft with an allen or drill bit thru the housing hole,torq the drive pulley nut, install it like the old one was installed.
Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and the tension-arm bolt. Push the alternator so the pulley tightens the belts. Tighten the tension-arm bolt, and then the mounting bolt.
15 mm wrench Put it on the tension pulley and pull to take tension off belt
Remove the alternator wiring harness. Loosen the tensioner pulley. Remove the alternator belt. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
Remove the alternator belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. Remove the wiring from the alternator. Remove the retaining bolts to the alternator. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
did you try removing the alternator first? no i didn't try to remove the alternator first
You don't. The tension on the belt is held tight by a spring loaded tensioner idler.
Go to NAPA and buy a repair manual for your specific car.
