How to Change Alternator Belt on KIA Spectra


Replacing the alternator belt on a Kia Spectra is of great importance because the drive belt wears over time, due to the heat in the engine bay and stress placed on the belt from the continuous tension placed on it. The belt begins to crack and can eventually break, causing the alternator to become inoperable. This can cause your vehicle to stall, because the alternator is the electrical generator in the car. If the alternator isn’t working, the battery and ultimately the ignition system won’t receive an electrical charge and will cause the vehicle to shut off, possibly leaving you stranded. To avoid these troubles, check your belts periodically to make sure they are in good condition.

Tools Used: Tools, Basic tools (ratchet, sockets, wrenches), New belt, Ruler
