looking for diagram for serpentine belt; 2006 scion xa

AMD :

AMD :

Are you available to discuss your question at this time?

AMD :

Hello! how are you doing today?

AMD :

Can you see my input?

Customer:

Yep. Stick with me. I had good luck with same car and your website couple weeks ago finding alternator fuse

AMD :

I will do my best to help.

AMD :

Now here's the diagram of the belt

Customer:

Replacing alt. or serpentine belt. Need diagram for belt. Can loosen top alt. nut. is that all I need to loosen in order to put on ?

AMD :

The alternator has 2 bolts. one at the top which is the adjuster and one at the bottom which holds the alternator to the engine

AMD :

you need to loosen both to replace the belt

AMD :

if you are replacing the alternator you need to remove them both to pull the alternator out.

AMD :

Are you replacing the alternator or just the belt?

Customer:

OK. as mentioned someone else stripped bottom bolt. That is really root of problem; alt. belt wears prematurely due to not being secure. I don't have to play with tensioner ?

Customer:

Thanks; got diagram

Customer:

just belt

AMD :

This belt has no tensioner. you basically pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt then tighten the top bolt

AMD :

So loosen the top bolt then push the alternator forward towards the engine then route your new belt then use a pry bar to pry the alternator away from the engine then tighten the 12mm bolt at the bracket for the alternator at the top

AMD :

that should take care of it

AMD :

Did you have any other questions for me today?

Customer:

k. thanks. Im going to go try doing this. If I have trouble can I still access you. Thanks again

AMD :

You're welcome. A positive rating for my input would be greatly appreciated.

AMD :

thank you for using justanswer.com let me know if you need further assistance.

Customer:

'

Customer:

Looks pretty easy.; just loosen top bolt which I already have done.

AMD :

you will have to push the alternator by force towards the engine because the pivot point it tight with the bottom bolt

Customer:

will do; thanks again

AMD :

You're welcome
