2002 santa fe v6 alternator serpentine belt question

Hello all, Im about to replace my failed alternator on my 2002 v6 santa fe with a new one. According to the hyundai service website the newer alternators are rated at 110 amp, (vs 95 amp for the original alternator) which is what my new after market alternator is rated at, 110 amp. Addiionaly, the web site specifies that the newer alternators also have with a smaller pulley 58 mm vs 62mm. However, I measured the pulley on the new after market alternator and the pulley diamter measures approx 62mm. My question, has anyone replaced a 95 amp with a 110 and if so, can they recommend a belt or belt length? i want to make sure i use the correct legth belt.

Thanks
Jerry

If the pulley is indeed a 62mm one then the old belt should fit fine, although I would recommend a new one. All else should mount the same.

2003 got a new alternator, part covers earlier models, uses shorter belt..

Part numbers valid ay Hyundai and Kia dealers

A new generator is available for the 2.7L V6 Engine. The changes to the generator are:

1 - The generator pulley size (as measured to the top of the belt grooves) has been decreased from 62mm (2.44") to 58mm (2.28"). This results in higher generator speed and output at engine idle.

2 - The voltage regulator's temperature compensation has been changed to lessen the drop in generator performance as the temperature increases

3 - The part number of the generator has changed

These changes result in improved generator performance at low engine speeds








Other than the different labels and pulleys, the generators look the same.


As a result of the change in the pulley size of the generator, the serpentine belt has also been changed, as outlined in the table below.


The new belt is approximately 5mm (0.2") shorter than the previous belt.


OLD:



NEW: (current 37182)

Okay, this is what happen when I put in a 110 alt compared to a 95amp. the tranny will not shift right and the radio will keep coming on by itself.. make Shure u put a 95amp alt back in it. I was ask for the ID number inside the door or on the dashboard, also the year the truck was made. the belt must be the right size also..
