Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.


  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Make sure that the belt is fully seated in ALL pulleys, if it still slips off, then you have a pully that is bent, or out of alignment.

    The serpentine belt tensioner is a spring loaded device that pulls the right amount of pressure to keep the belt for falling off, as well slipping.

    This unit has a short life span, that of the belt, and in most cases it is recommended that it should be replaced at the same time as the belt.

    I am 90% sure this is the issue.

    I hope this helps

    I have a 09 lancer rallyart and the serpentine belt keeps wanting to slip off any ideas and all the teath lined up right


    This is usually caused by a bad idler or tensioner pulley. If the bearing for one of these pulleys goes bad, it can cause the pulley to kick sideways just a little bit, which is often enough to misalign or even throw the belt.

    To check, remove the belt and check the idler and tensioner pulleys for free play in the bearing.

    Hope this was helpful

    First, you need to have the diagram for how the belt is routed when you replace it.
