How To Tight Alternator Belt For 1996 Corolla?

Recommended Posts


My 96 corolla alternator belt has squeaking noise, and batter warning light shows up on dash. I'm assuming the battery is not charged. Can anyone help me how to tight up or replace alternator belt please?

Much appreciated!


Here is a video that "might" help: For a 1.6L 4A-FE engine, would also be the same for the 1.8L 7A-FE engine.

Probably be worthwhile to search more on youtube or similar - I haven't fully looked at the video, as I'm still at work - hoping that the video and key shots are clear.

I can say from previous experience, depending on how that locking bolt on the 7th gen comes off will determine if it is a tough job or not.


Thank you very much! I will try it on the weekend...
