Re: BELT SQUEAL

you may think the belt is tight, but it's still just a lil loose. you gotta wrench down on that sucker.

Re: BELT SQUEAL

Yeah be sure to check the tightness, even if you checked them not long ago. In my experiance i have had them loosen over time and needs some extra tightning. You could also use some spray belt dressing.. i cant remember what i used but it worked great for me.

Re: BELT SQUEAL

Ok. Would anyone be able to post some kind of pic of the location of the screw? I don't want to loosen or tighten the wrong one

^ Pic of Nut



^ Adjustment Instructions

PS - I know they are slightly different models in the above but the position of the nut and the process is the same

Re: BELT SQUEAL

Don't forget to loosen the hinge bolts. I snapped my ps pump adjusting screw because I didn't know to loose up the other bolts first.

Re: BELT SQUEAL

Ok so I went outside and attempted to tighten the nut and its like impossible to get to because of these two tubes in front of the nut. (If it was the right nut). So I didn't mess with it

Re: BELT SQUEAL

As the instructions say, loosen the alternator lock nut and through bolt so the alternator is free to move. Then turn the adjustment bolt to proper tension. Once achieved, tighten the through bolt and the alternator locknut.

Icon5 Re: BELT SQUEAL

quick question
what belt is this?
alternator belt? fan belt? power steering belt?
second question
i know it shouldnt be shaking at all but mine does quite a bit, is it in need of emergency fixing? if so what could happen if ignored.
