Installation is pretty much reverse of removal:

  • Install the drive belt properly to the pulleys.
  • Remove slack from the belt by pulling on the generator in order to obtain 9 - 11 mm (0.35 - 0.43 inch)of belt deflection under 10 kg (22 lbs.) of force.
  • Tighten the 2 generator bolts (1, 2).

    • Tighten the bolts to 23 Nm (16.5 ft. lbs.).
  • Install the power steering drive belt.
