The belt to the alternator of your 95 corsica needs to be replaced what will it cost?
that all depends on if its a 4 cyl or 6 cyl. all labor rats are dif. and so are the belts and supliers
No vehicle is specified, however, in all vehicles I have seen and/or worked on, the serpentine belt must be removed from the pulley that spins the alternator. NOTE: Some vehicles have another, separate, serpentine style belt that runs the a/c compressor and may have to be removed to remove the belt running the alternator. (Complete removal is not necessary unless the belt needs to be replaced.)
If your vehicle has an automatic belt tensioner with a serpentine belt, the belt is worn and needs to be replaced. On older models, the belt tension can be set by adjusting it at the alternator bracket. Loosen but do not remove the two bolts that hold the alternator in place (one at the bracket and one on the block) and pull the alternator to tighten the belt. Hold in position while re-tightening the bracket…
Yes a bad bearing on any of your accessories or a tensioner pully (idler) can make the sound. Once the belt is off, you can isolate it. If it's an accessory, it will have to be replaced. The belt MAY be loose instead, meaning it needs a new idler. If it stops when slightly wet or you use belt dressing-it's loose and needs an idler. .
If it is a serpentine belt, the tension is automatically adjusted by the tension idler. If the belt is loose then the tensioner needs replacing. If it is a normal drive belt, then the alternator is mounted on a slotted bracket that allows you to adjust the position of the alternator. You can loosen the bolts and adjust the tension on the belt.
How do you adjust the alternator belt in a 1997 Honda Accord to make it stop squealing even when it seems to be tight enough?
Because the alternator puts a load on the engine of several horsepower, the belt must be very tight. However, if it is too tight, the bearings of the alternator shaft will wear out quickly. To tension the belt properly, adjust until there is about 1/2 inch of play in the center of the longest span. If this does not stop the squealing, the belt may have been glazed from being too loose, and needs to…
When I bought my '02 I was told that it no longer has the timing belt/chain that needs to be replaced at around 60,000 miles (my '96 did have a timing belt that needed to be replaced every 60,000 miles). I have put over 80,000 mi. on my '02 and nice to know I won't be getting surprised by timing belt failure. Did have to have the serpentine belt on the engine replaced recently though.
I recently replaced the alternator on my 96' Lumina. 1. Remove the serpentine belt off the engine by locating the belt tensioner and removing the tension req'd to remove the belt. (there is usually a diagram in the engine compt. showing the tensioner location and belt path) 2. Remove required bolts (2) I believe... & elec. harness plug from alternator. 3. Replace alternator & reverse process.
Usualy the tensioner or idler pulley is spring loaded and can be pulled backwards allowing enough slack for the belt to slip on easily On a 1992-1996 Beretta/Corsica, the upper engine mount needs to be removed in order to remove/replace the serpentine belt. Replace the belt, and reinstall the engine mount.
