You're kidding, right? You loosen the short bolt near the top of the alternator. This is the bolt that passes through a long, curving slot in a long, curving mounting bracket. Once this is loosened, not removed, you can tilt the alternator toward the center of the motor, bringing the pulley closer to the next pulley around which the belt is looped. Grab the belt and pull it around the alternator pulley. Now tilt the alternator back to where it was. This will take the slack out of the belt. You'll have to push pretty hard against the alternator to get the belt tight. Once it's tight, tighten down the bolt you loosened. Now, find the longest stretch of unsupported belt and push against the belt to see how tight it is. It shouldn't be so tight that it doesn't move at all. You want about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch of slack, but absolutely NO MORE THAN 1/2 AN INCH! If it doesn't fall within these measurements, you need to loosen the bolt and adjust the tension again. That's it. It should be fairly obvious unless you have a car with one of those new-fangled serpentine belts. In that case, same method applies, it's just more complicated to keep track of all the pullies and belt loops.
your fan belt may be connected to your alternator if so loosen alternator romove belt put new one on and pull alternator back until proper tension is aqquired tighten
Look at accessory drive belt alternator is driven by this belt
disconnect battery. remove the belt, remove the plug in the back, remove the bolts holding it on. then reverse procedure.
if your looking at you engine from the front view it goes your power steering belt followed by your alternator belt then at the back bottom is you a/c belt
first unhook the battery, then release the automatic belt tensioner and remove the belt, then unbolt the alternator and disconnect the wiring from the alternator....to reinstall, reverse the removal procedure
get a wrench that fits the tensioner and pull it back until the belt has enough slack to go on the alternator
Relax belt by holding automatic belt tensioner with large socket and/or breaker bar
If it's the alternator belt, loosen the bolts holding the alternator in place, then use something like a hammer handle to pry the alternator away from the engine which will tighten the belt. Hold the pressure on the alternator while tightening the bolts. This is a general procedure, not specific to 1996 dodge.
You will need to bolt the alternator into your 2001 VW Jetta engine. Connect the wiring harness to the back of the alternator. Put the serpentine belt on to the alternator. Tighten the belt.
the alternator belt is the one all the way in the back. You have to loosen the power steering pump, A/C idler pulley, and then loosen the alternator.
What belt? Drive belt is easy, just loose the 3 bolts on the alternator, pry the alternator forward, put the new belt on, pry the alternator back, and tighten the bolts. Power steering belt is much more difficult.
Loosen the bolt on the alternator that is located at the top that is located in a long curved slot. Loosen the pivot bolt at the bottom of the alternator. Slide the alternator forward to gain slack on the belt. Remove belt and put on new belt. Get a crowbar, jam it in front of the alternator, and pry the alternator back being careful not to crush any wiring or bend any fragile metal. Hold the crowbar in place while you tighten the top alternator bolt with your third hand. Check for proper belt deflection. Tighten pivot bolt. If is squeels when running it's too loose.
Disconnect the battery negative terminal. Remove serpentine belt. Remove bolts to alternator and positive cable at alternator and harness. Remove alternator. Reverse procedure to install.
Use a large wrench to take tension off of your serpentine belt and remove the belt from the alternator, (just the alternator). Disconnect the wires. Remove the bolts then the alternator. Put new alternator in place using old bolts. Replace wires (may only be one wire, depending on the alternator). Get your large wrench back out, put the belt back on the alternator, and your good to go.
Loosen the alternator tensioner bolt. The alternator belt will become loose. Remove the alternator belt. Put the new alternator belt on and reverse the process.
alternator drive belt?
(Nippondenso Alternator on 3.0 liter V6 Engine) 1) Remove the negative battery cable, 2) Remove the alternator drive belt, Note: The Poly-V alternator/power steering pump belt is provided with a dynamic tensioner to maintain proper belt tension. To remove or install this belt, insert a 1/2 in. breaker bar in the opening provided and release tension by rotating the tensioner counterclockwise. 3) Remove the alternator mounting nut (top) and bolt (bottom) and separate the alternator from the mounting plate, 4) Remove the B+ terminal, 2 field terminal nuts, ground and wire harness hold down nuts. Remove wire harness from alternator. 5) Remove the alternator from the vehicle. To reinstall, reverse the above procedure making sure the belt is in the proper position on all pulleys. Gary.
First you will want to loosen the alternator. To do this you will need to loosen the bolt holding adjustment bolt in place. This is right under the alternator. After loosening this bolt, you can use the adjusting bolt to loosen the alternator and the belt should slide right off. Then you can put on the new belt and tighten the alternator using the adjusting bolt. After the belt is to the proper tightness, tighten the bolt directly underneath the alternator to keep the belt tight and from becoming loose.
If the alternator is driven by a drive belt, the answer is yes. You adjust the tension by loosing the bolts on the alternator mounting brackets and sliding the alternator until the proper tension, (around 1/4" deflection at mid point of the belt) is achieved. If however it has a Serpentine Belt driving the alternator, then there is no adjustment. Tension is held by the idler pulley. If it is loose then the belt is worn out, the idler tensioner is defective, or both.
unhook the serpentine belt, unbolt the old alternator, un-clip the electrical parts, bring the old alternator back to the store for its core :) put the new alternator in exactly as you found the old one, put the serpentine belt back on, run for 5 minutes, re tension the belt
Yes, I know of no engine where the alternator is driven by the cam belt. The alternator is driven by a drive belt or serpentine belt.
To change the alternator drive belt on a Bobcat 853 you start by lifting the cab. With the cab up, you can see the back of the engine and alternator. Locate the belts spring tensioner and release the belt.
It is under the alternator on the back of the engine. Just follow the belt down from the back of the alternator.
First you back off the stud at the top of the alternator, than at the back of the alternator there is an adjuster tensioner bolt has to be loosened, then you need to loosen the power steering pump (3 bolts), then remove power steering belt, then remove alternator belt, then to install new belt do the same except in reverse order.... (found out the hard way.)
Disconnect the battery. If your model uses a belt tensioner then move it to take the tension of the belt. Otherwise loosen the alternator bolts and the unit will move in its bracket to let you remove the belt. Disconnect alternator wiring and remove the alternator bolts to take the unit out. Reverse procedure to install the new unit.
