How to properly adjust your Type 1 VW’s alternator or generator fan belt
Fast, simple, and well explained video. Thanks!
By any chance would you know what kind of v-belt is for a vw 1600cc engine with alternator?
I just tried to tighten the belt on my 71 Beetle it had 2 shims left removed them both tighten it and still way too loose. It's a new belt say Contitech 11.3 X 912 La is that the right belt ? If so what can it be ? Thanks.
I have a 2387 turbo on my sand rail even with the belt on tight it toss it out any idea why this happens any info would help thanks
geez i just learned something new
Thanks. When you removed the two shims from the inside, did you add them to the outside? You mentioned doing that at the end when you said you might need to pull one more out and adding to the outside.
Thanks for the video, I have adjusted my belt on my dunebuggy, but now am going to re-do by removing a couple more shims and I should be good to go. It took me about 4 minutes.
belt could be too far stretched. try a new one
I have removed all the shims and the belt is still loose… could the generator or fan shroud be loose causing the generator to sag and not get good tension on the belt?
Do you have a video on how to remove and install a generator in a vw?
should you be able to stop the fan belt with your hand?
Also good to check if the belt is glazed,cracked or worn out too before adjusting it.
Since it's apart anyway it's a great time to replace it if it needs it and will save you unnecessary readjusting down the road. Just a thought.
