as for the tension looking fine, there is a spec that is required, or you should check with a tension gauge. if the belts aren't straight (they would just slip off), or if the belt is straight, but not engaged on the teeth.

the deflection should be around 4-5mm. if you could gauge 22 ft-lbf, that is what you need to apply to check tension. do you see why it's much easier with a tension gauge. you could get 'em for between $50-100.

thanks for the write up. Got mine changed, but having trouble finding the delicate balance between tight enough for alternator and ps pump to work, while not squeaking. Currently have a nasty noise coming from that belt, but if I loosen it, the battery light comes on. Any suggestions? ('04 A/T Sedan, BTW)

belts

No. Used autozone duralst. Would the OEM ones actually make that much difference? the aftermarket ones are the exact size as the ones I took out...

From what I read in previous post it does make difference, I don’t think it’s the size more the material they use. How tight is the belt? Can you turn the bolt easily?

tension adjustment

the tension bolt is not difficult to adjust, hardest part is removing the stinking cover underneath the engine first with the 20 bolts holding it in....
I tried to make it as loose as I could while still allowing the alternator and p/s pump to function properly. still some squeakage when I start and and drive for a bit.

one thing I did think of is that while I was changing the belts, I changed the oil while I was down there anyway. I accidentally kicked my oil drain pan while I was walking away, and spattered some oil on the underside of the engine. some might have gotten on the belt. could this be a cause of the nasty noise?
