You can use a hammer against the ratchet to get it tight. smack it a few good times. First I would take it out and apply some loctite to it. Use the non permanent type.

How do i tighten belts on alfa romeo 156


If you are talking about the serpentine belts, you can tighten them from the crankshaft pulley. You will need a large sprocket for this. Put the sprocket in and then move the pulley. This will give you the slack you need to put the belt on.

Replacing a timing belt on a 1994 Ford Ranger


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Drain pan
  • Ratchet
  • Ratchet extension
  • Socket set
  • Small standard screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Timing belt tensioner wrench No. T74P-6254-A
  • Large standard screwdriver
  • Torque wrench
  • Timing belt
  • Timing belt cover gasket
    Preparation
  1. Place a drain pan under the radiator and drain the coolant from the radiator.

  2. Squeeze the spring clamp holding the upper radiator hose to the radiator fitting with a pair of rib joint pliers and slide the clamp towards the engine.

  3. Twist and pull the upper radiator hose off the radiator.

  4. Remove the fan blade using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

  5. Rotate the belt tensioner pulley using a breaker bar and remove the drive belt.

  6. Detach the water pump pulley using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

  7. Pry off the access plug from the upper part of the timing belt cover using a small standard screwdriver.

  8. Set the transmission to Neutral and apply the Parking brakes.

  9. Rotate the crankshaft pulley with a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket to align the "O" mark on the crankshaft pulley and the "O" mark on the belt cover.

  10. Look through the cover access hole. If you see another timing mark on the camshaft sprocket aligned with the mark on the inner belt cover, cylinder number 1 is at Top Dead Center (TDC). If not, rotate the crankshaft one complete turn again and check for the alignment marks.

  11. Removing the Timing Belt
  12. Unscrew the four mounting bolts and the Phillips screw next to the access plug from the timing belt cover using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and Phillips screwdriver.

  13. Detach the crankshaft pulley using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and remove the belt guide (large washer) from behind the crankshaft pulley. You may need a pulley remover to take the crankshaft pulley off. If so, you can rent one from most auto parts stores.

  14. Loosen the adjusting bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

  15. Rotate the tension spring rollpin (this is the screw next to the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly) away from the timing belt using timing belt tensioner wrench number T74P-6254-A. As you hold the timing belt loose, tighten the assembly adjuster bolt to lock the tensioner using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Now remove the tensioner wrench.

  16. Remove the timing belt.

  17. Installing the New Timing Belt
  18. Install the new timing belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket. Route the belt in a counterclockwise direction over the auxiliary and camshaft sprockets. Properly engage the belt lugs on the sprockets' teeth and keep any slack on the belt to the right side, between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Make sure not to rotate any of the sprockets as you install the timing belt.

  19. Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly so the tensioner rolls against the belt. If necessary, push the tensioner pulley against the belt with a large standard screwdriver to remove any remaining slack on the belt.

  20. Make sure the transmission is in the Neutral position and the Parking brakes are engaged.

  21. Rotate the crankshaft two complete revolutions so that cylinder No.1 is back in TDC. This will help to tighten the timing belt on the sprockets.

  22. Tighten the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly between 14- and 21-foot lbs. (19.0 to 29.0 Nm) using a torque wrench.

  23. Tighten the tension-spring bolt between 28- and 40-foot lbs. (38.0-54.0 Nm) using the torque wrench.

  24. Install the belt guide (large washer) and the crankshaft pulley. Tighten the pulley bolt with the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

  25. Install the timing belt cover with a new gasket using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and Phillips screwdriver.

  26. Reinstall the water pump pulley, drive belt, fan blade and upper radiator hose.

  27. Refill the cooling system with coolant.

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?


The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

Altenator tension arm has no spring causes belt sqeal and engine to die out.how to cahnge tension arm


Your truck has one belt and one idler pulley. To tighten it you will need a large bar (a breaker bar, crowbar or large screwdriver will work) Loosen the idler pulley bolt (not all the way) just enough to break it loose then use the bar against the pulley to tension the belt. If there are parts missing from the idler pulley, a new one must be purchased.

Cant seem to get my Belt tencheners to move?


Sir,
If you look at the tensioner pulley, there is a stud on which the pulley rides, and then a large washer and a nut (which holds it on). The nut must be loosened just a bit (not so loose as to allow alot of play in the mounting) but just loose enough to allow movement - then you can turn the adjustment bolt Clockwise(CW) tighten - or Counter-CW to loosen - but leave it just a bit shy of tight, then as you tighten the nut, the pulley will straighten and tighten a bit more. I hope this is what you are referring to. Hope it helps! DD

1990 nissan 300zx nonturbo - change alternator belt how?


If you look at the front of the alternator, behind the belt, you'll see a curving grooved metal track - that's the adjuster track for the alternator. There's a bolt going through the groove into the alternator, which holds the alternator in place. You need to loosen that. I believe it's a 14mm bolt. You may also need to loosen a couple of the 12mm bolts that mount either the bracket or the alternator, to allow it to move. You'll probably find that it's easier to cut the old belt off (so it's out of the way) and then do the bolt work with a little more room to spare. Belt changes are always a pain on these cars - stick with it even if it takes awhile. If that doesn't get the alternator loose, loosen or remove other bolts on the alternator mount or on the track mount, and it will move eventually - not much, but it'll move. You may find that you can partially seat the belt on the alternator pulley, but can't get the belt fully onto the pulley. If that's the case, get it as far on as you can, and then put a 27mm socket on a long breaker bar, put the socket on the crank pulley bolt, and with the car in neutral, rotate the crank pulley by hand. This will pull the belt onto the alternator pulley.
