How to change accessory belt (without power steering)

I didnít see a write up and I know itís hella noob but someone might benefit from this. Especially since if there was a write up, photo bucket would have killed it.

So anyways I no longer have power steering. If you have a ps pump it might not be a bad idea to change these belts at the same time. To remove the power steering pump just loosen both 12mm nuts and it should drop right down giving you enough slack to pull the belt off. Which brings us to the alternator belt.

Tools: small ratchet with 12 mm, 10 mm and 14 mm sockets. Or wrenches of the equivalent. You can use either one to loosen these honestly. It makes no difference. The ratchets just a little faster.

Step zero: before anything please disconnect the battery.


Step one: loosen these bolts


Step two: remove this bolt


Step three: swing the bracket out of the way. If it wonít budge just loosen the adjusting screw some more.


Step four: appreciate how bad your belt is and realize it was probably close to failing.

Step five: do everything in reverse and tighten up the adjusting screw to take the slack out of the belt. If you engine cranks a little slower than it usually does the belt is a little tight. Just back it off a little. The belt doesnít need to be he man tight.

Thatís it. Itís simple but I know some people who never worked on their car before can benefit from this. Saves you that 75 bucks the mechanic would charge you.

Step four is probably the most important one because it reminds you to stop being a sh1tty car owner and keep up with basic maintenance
