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.
you can't fix a sensor, you can replace one by removing it and installing the new one...:)
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.
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.
It is the center to the right of the engine...
