No, the battery has nothing whatsoever to do with the belt other than the belt is driving the alternator which recharges the battery. The alternator is working hard to recharge a weak battery. If the belt is squealing then the belt is either worn out or it is loose. If it is loose it is because the tensioner is defective and not holding the proper tension.
If it is only the alternator driven by the belt no damage will be done but your car battery will lose charge and not recharge. Hence a fast flat battery. Hope this helps.
If I understand the question. It is not good to run the car without the belt on the alternator. It will drain your battery and damage your battery. You usually have 20-30 miles running on the battery without any recharge without any power on.
Very easy. Disconnect the battery. Lift up the belt tensioner and slip the serpentine belt up off the alternator pulley. Remove the 3 bolts holding down the alternator. Unplug the voltage regulator cable from the alternator. Disconnect the positive battery cable from the alternator. Installation is the reverse of removal.
The belt turning the alternator which is recharging the battery.
disconnect the battery. Remove the alternator belt then disconnect the wires. Unbolt the alternator and remove. Bolt the new alternator in then connect the wires, belt, and battery.
It sounds like your alternator is not supplying sufficent power to properly recharge the battery. Could be just a loose belt.
Corroded or loose battery connections, loose alternator drive belt, defective alternator, or dead cell in the battery.
Alternator belt is probably loose and slipping. If you can turn the alternator by hand and the belt slips its too loose. Retension alternator belt
Disconnect the 1990 Regal battery. Remove the alternator belt. Unhook the wiring from the alternator then unbolt it. Remove and replace the alternator then reconnect the wiring, belt, and reconnect the battery to finish the installation.
Disconnect the 98 LeSabre battery. Remove the alternator belt. Remove the alternator wiring. unbolt the alternator, remove it, and bolt the new one on. Reconnect the wiring, but the belt on, then reconnect the battery.
Disconnect the battery. Loosen the alternator bolts and slide the alternator to loosen the belt. Remove any other belts in front of the bad belt if necessary to get to it. Remove the alternator belt, and install the new one. Pull the alternator to the side to tighten the new belt snug and hold while tightening the bolts. Reconnect the battery
Well not the starter. The starter is used to start spinning the engine and draws its power from the battery. The alternator uses the engines belt to recharge the battery and to power the cars electronics as well as lights. When you shut the engine off, the power then draws from the battery.
Disconnect the 1991 Regal battery. Remove the alternator belt and wiring. Unbolt the alternator and install the new one. Reconnect the wires, install the belt, then reconnect the battery.
it stands for your charging system i.e battery and alternator. u need to make sure your belts are tight because a loose belt doesnt help the battery recharge
Disconnect the battery. Remove the alternator belt. Disconnect the wiring on the alternator, then unbolt and remove the unit. Bolt the new alternator in place and connect the wiring. Install the belt and connect the battery back up.
Probably loose drivebelt. or alternator belt of it is seperate.
It's probably the belt slipping. Check for belt tension. When an engine first starts the alternator works harder to recharge the battery. During that time, the alternator is harder to turn and if the belt isn't tight enough there can be some slipping between the belt and the pulley.
Three things to look for: (1) A loose belt will not spin the alternator fast enough to fully recharge the battery - tighten and/or replace the belt; (2) A bad or weak alternator will either not provide enough charge, or any charge at all to the battery - have the alternator checked out and replace if necessary; (3) a battery with a dead cell will not hold a charge and will "die" quickly - have the battery checked out and replace if necessary.
Disconnect the battery, remove all wires from the alternator, slacken the belt tensioner, slip the belt off of the alternator pulley, unbolt the alternator, and remove the alternator. Installation is the opposite of removal.
Can be loose or corroded battery connections, loose drive belt, or the alternator is failing.
Only if your alternator is not working properly. If you are always charging your battery, check your alternator belt. That was the solution for my escort, a new $10.00 belt.
If it is the belt that drives the alternator, then yes. In many cars, the serpentine belt (the huge, long belt that most think is the "belt" in their car) drives the alternator, and so if it's loose or slipping, will cause the alternator to run sporadically, which will result in a battery that doesn't retain a charge like it should.
undo the positive battery terminal loosen alternator bolts undo tensioner to get belt loose pull alternator down and out repeat directions tighten belt bolts bolt battery terminal...
Alternator defective, or alternator belt broken or slipping.
