I usually hold my breath when changing the pully, but some folks need air or they'll pass out.

There should be a spring loaded tensioner pulley. If the pulley isn't holding the belt sufficiently tight you may need to replace the tensioner.

To change the alternator belt on a Mazda 323, first remove the right hand air shield under the can. Then locate the pulley tensioner of the AC and loosen the bolts on the pulley. Finally, remove the alternator pivot bolt under the alternator to remove the old alternator belt and replace with a new one.

Loosen the 17mm bolt in the middle of the pulley. Loosen the belt tensioner, and the pulley should slide off with a little help. Make sure to nothing the little key-way that lines the pulley up.

THERE IS A BELT TENSIONER BELOW AND JUST TO THE RIGHT OF THE FAN PULLEY. LOOSEN IT COMPLETELY, AND THE NEW BELT SHOULD FIT RIGHT ON. THEN TIGHTEN THE TENSIONER TO TIGHTEN THE BELT, AND YOUR DONE. GOOD LUCK, DANNY.

Most likely there is a spring loaded device called a belt tensioner. There is a pulley on it with a bolt or square inset in it. sometime a socket or 3/8" drive extention can be used to move the pulley and release the tension on the belt.

I will assume you are regarding the pulley for the power steering? If so to loosen it use a socket on the top of the pulley it should have a flat head style appearance.Loosen it clockwise and then the big nut on front of the pulley is a 7/8 inch combination wrench loosen it and the pulley should slide down to make the PS belt loose.This pulley is kind of weird but,by loosening the top bolt (metric) the bolt will come up as you take the tension off.Then YOU defenitely have to loosen the nut on the front of the pulley itself which alloys the pulley to move up or down.To adjust back with new belt on run the top bolt which is behind the pulley with the flat head cut in it run it down tight then tighten the nut on front of the pulley this locks the pulley in place so it will not move.Hope this helps.If this question is in reference to the tensioner for the timing belt resubmit your question.

On my 93 Mazda MPV I removed the shroud above the fan, loosened the tensioner on the right side (as you look at the engine) and that losens the outside belt. Then, go to the other side and losen the tensioner top and bottom for the alternator and second belt. Losen the bolt under the alternator and it will hit the pulley before you get it out - so you'll have to remove the pulley. Used a screwdriver to go through the small holes in the pulley and jam the pulley so I could losen with 5/8 socket. This may take a cheater. It is a regular thread (no reverse thread here) We did remove the bottom shroud but may not have been necessary as the pulley bolt was visibile and accessible from above. Once the pulley is off, remove the long bolt underneath the alternator and lift the alternator and tilt for access to the back - remove the 2 electrical wires sets and it should lift right out of there.

Should be the tensioner that the Alternator belt goes to

Check all belt driven accessories (alternator, P.s. Pump, water pump, idler pulley, belt tensioner, etc.) to find which is frozen and replace appropriate part

what type of gear pulley to use to take off oil pump on 1996 Mazda mellinia?

User Avatar

You need a special tool, pulley puller and installer to remove the pulley first then you remove both hose and bolts to remove the pump, then install new pump and hoses, bolts and finally install the pulley with the special tool, never try to hammer in the pulley, if you do new pump will brake

User Avatar

first the spring puts tension on the belt, then you tighten the tensioner assembly and it hold there.

the timing marks for that year Mazda are on the crank pulley and corresponding marks are on the timing belt cover.

To change the alternator belt on a 1998 Mazda 626 you need to first loosen the bolt that is located in the center of the adjustment pulley. Next, turn the adjustment bolt to the left until the belt is loose and can be removed. Reverse the steps to replace with the new belt.

Remove the positive cable from the battery post. Remove the cables from the alternator. Remove the alternator wiring harness. Remove the belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.

when do i change a cam belt on a mazda 2

User Avatar

you need to loosen the pulley itself so that it can work it's way down to the bracket. it has to be a 17mm socket, and unless someone put a different bolt on the pulley. 17mm should be your number. maybe try cleaning the bolt ahead

User Avatar

It is behind the Timing Cover. Torwards the crank pulley.

try to push the belt tensioner in then the belt should come loose

User Avatar

pull off mud flaps and find the belt tensioner turn the nut on the tensioner pulley clockwise to loosen serpentine belt. Take belt off. Take the three bolts out of the water pump pulley and take it of then you have three bolts connecting the water pump to the motor take them off problem may be the old water pump may stick if it does not slide it out replace it and dont forget to clean the gasket area with a wire brush and use sealant along with a gasket I hope this is helpful

Because its a Mazda! its normally part of the 75k service which costs anywhere between £500 and £850 depending on which Mazda garage you go to. Plus another potential £150 as apparently the auto tensioner can 'go' when replacing the belt. Mazda want £300 to change just the belt. But mazdas do seem to be excessively expensive compared to other cars for parts. My mazda6 diesel 2002 is due for a belt change. But am gonna get my mechanic to do it instead. Belt is £70-£80 plus labour charges. memanc@gmail.com
