helllo im new to hyundai, i just brought a 2001 hyundai sonata 2.5 v6 model. and alternator just went out >.<
i gotten both top and lower bolt on the alternator removed/loosen up but i cant get the belt off,
is there certain way i can loose up the serpentine belt tensioner or is there special tool i have to use?
thanks alot for replying! thanks!
i really need to get this fix because its my daily driver as of now, and weather is getting colder each day....
There is 2 style tension arm... 1 has a 3/8 square toward the end where you use the square on a long 3/8 ratchet to pull arm down and remove belt... other style has no hole, so you use a 17mm open end wrench on the square end of the arm... use a LONG 17mm, too much spring for a short wrench.
Where are you getting replacement alternator ? Hyundai changed design, so if you go that way, you will need to use the 37111 belt with it due to changed pulley diameter.
Look at the upper mount (iron) with 2 bolts to cylinder head... loosen them 2 bolts so mount wiggles, then get all the bolts back in to hold alternator in place, then tighten all the bolts.
I am in prpcess of 60,000 service... here is tensioner with square, and also pic of how to place wrench on end.
You have to loosen the 2 mounting bolts on tension body to allow it to come away from timing belt cover enough so you can slip belt over the pulley..
Your e-bay is of the later style, easier to work with.. as to the belt... check pulley diameters.. Hyundai change to a new style alternator with a smaller pulley for more power at low speed, so with smaller pulley, you need a shorter belt to go along with the new alternator' smaller pulley.. new alternator came along with 2003 production I think it was.
