Turn the belt inside out. you need to get it under the power steering belt and to the other side of the pulley. You can use a crescent wrench to turn the pulley and get the belt under the other one. Turn the belt back right side out. loosen the alternator bolt and place the belt around the alternators pulley. Tighten the alternator bolt.
Should be the tensioner that the Alternator belt goes to
I am having the same problem with a 99 Protege. I have changed the alternator and aligned/cleaned the pulleys and the problem persists.I replaced the alternator, on my 1997 Mazda Protege, seven times before someone figured out why the serpentine belt kept breaking. It was the belt tensioner! It had to be removed and rebuilt. Now it is working like a charm!! And I havn't had to replace the alternator in over 3 months!!!!
need to replace the intake manifold gasket
Tighten the belt until you have 1/2" of deflection at midpoint. I hope this helps you. Mark
Yes it does have ABS. The older Protege 1997 and older dosnt.
the common cause why the light is on is that your alternator is not working well,try to have your alternator checked .may be the carbon brush is already worn out.
you can't fix a sensor, you can replace one by removing it and installing the new one...:)
how do you replace 1997 alternator belt
Make sure it isn't the tire first. You will have to remove the strut, and have the bearing pressed out.
does a 1997 1.5l maxda protege have a timing belt or timing chain. When should i change it.
need more info my friend
It is the center to the right of the engine...
My local VIP shop in Yarmouth, Maine, wants $540! Claims they need to shape the line and it takes seven hours.... I have a 1999 Protege.
alternators go 'bad' in various ways; bearings = noise diodes = no charge, insufficient charge or discharge. brushes = no charge
Center of the dash board you moron.
you must unbolt the frame from the body to be able to access 2 bolts
Above the brake pedal,its black plastic.
Loosen the tensioner bolt on your 1997 Kia alternator. Move the alternator to the left. The alternator belt will become loose and can be replaced.
MY Mazda 1997 protege 1.5 takes the green one I think. and My car is a Canadian one meaning in winter it gets really cold. I love this car to death. Sam,
This is from the Owners Handbook of my Mazda 323, 1996 : Alternator Drive Belt. 1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and adjusting bar bolt. Replace Fanbelt. 2. Turn the adjusting bolt until the correct tension is obtained. The deflexion should be 10mm. 3. Tighten bolts and recheck the tension.
not likely. the 1997 Mazda protege is a different chassis than the 1999 protege (BHA to BJ, respectively). the two transmissions between the two generations are also different, the BHA utilizing the FB4A-EL automatic transmission and the BJ utilizing the FN4A-EL automatic transmission. they also have different engines. you're better off going to a junkyard and pulling a auto trans from a third generation protege (1999-2003)...that would work. if you have any further questions, you can follow this link: www.protegefaq.net hope this helps!
