\015\012The serpentine belt does not have to be above the pulley. It could very well be below it. So, try setting it below the alternator. Also if the problem is only of setting it then you have to loosen the bolt on the alternator and then tighten it again after adjusting the belt over or under the pulley. The tension adjustment bolt is always there on the alternator.

I changed the altenator, but cant get the belt to go back on right. I tried putting it on the back half of the double pulley, but the car sqealed and didnt run right, but when the belt is angled funny when I put it on the front half. Do you have the diagram for the tensioner belt? (My car actually has 2 seperate belts and I have no picture diagrams on this car to tell you which way to run the belts)>


If the belt is angled funny, you do not have it routed correctly. \015\012There should be a belt routing diagram under the hood somewhere. Check that the pulley position of the new alternator is the same as the old alternator.\015\012 ... Hyundai Accent

I changed my altenator but cant get belt back on, where is the belt tensioner


There should be a square hole in the tensioner that you would put a 3/8 or 1/2 socket wrench head into to use to pull the spring loaded tensioner away from the belt. Look for a single roller on the belt-Should be about 3-4 " diameter.\015\012Ho ... 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

I have a 2001 ford f150 supercrew 5.4L. I have had a problem with it making a high pitch sqeaking when i turn on my car and accelerate.

Hey there. I am replacing the serpentine belt on my 1997 Ford Taurus. The idle pulley bearings were shot, so the old belt actually slipped off. I am about to replace the idle pulley. I have loosened off the tension pulley, but for the life of me cannot get the serpentine belt back on. I am about half an inch from getting in on – the new belt is exactly the same length as the old one. Is the tension pulley supposed to spring forward or back? It is loose, but I cannot make it move in either direct


This pulley should be spring loaded and you should have a diagram of the belt path on a label under the hood. There should be a square hole in the casting for a breaker bar or rachet to use as a lever to push or pull the pulley.\015\012\ ... 1997 Ford Taurus

Make sure the tensioner is tight,it has a spring in it to move clockwise,do not leave any bolt loose,make sure you are routing the belt where the tension holds the belt on,not other way.\015\012\015\012\015\012Tim ... 1997 Ford Taurus
