Exclamation help with my stupid 98 kia sephia please

Hello Everyone, My Name Is Becky and i have come here in frustrated desperation. Before i get into my problem, though i just wanted to say that this forum is great and i am learning a little about alot here. I like it. so with a bow and a curtsy i have introduced myself and i will start with my whining plea. i am in a pickle. I have three days before I start my new job, and i am confused as all get out about how to replace the alternator belt on my 98 Kia Sephia. i just cant figure out how to get the other belt off in order to put the alternator belt on. until Sunday August 8th, and its friday now. I am in desperate need everyone.I can do the work if i could figure it out i just need some help. Thanks for your time. email me if you have a solution, i may even email you back with my cell phone # if you can talk me through it. its that serious. ok thanks and have a great weekend all. I am praying mine turns out to be busy with a good repair. hopefully there is one person out there with the angelic knowledge that can turn my weekend from hell into heaven.

Apparently you don't know much, there are more people that know shit than ChrisV you know

Repair book

Hello Becky. I see you did not get much help on your problem and I am not sure if I will be able to help either as I am not familiar with your car. I would like to say, however, that I find repair books of great help. Perhaps you can find the repair book for your car in a local auto store. Of course, the other option is to get some auto shop do it. I don't think changing a belt like that is too expensive.

By the way, for the group, my name is Necati. I have owned quite a few old cars that I had to repair myself to get them going.

Hey, Becky, I'm not at all familiar with that model of car. If it doesn't have a massive engine, it shouldn't be that difficult and should be quite accessable. You need to de-adjust the alternator tentioner, usually this is reasonably easy to spot and requires only a spanner or rachet & socket to alter. Some modern cars have tentioners that adjust themselves and just require tightening up....If all else fails, try the good old Haynes Manual lol....Sorry I cant be of more help and I hope I'm not too late
