Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing and maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20+ years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts installed correctly, that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the belt that drives the AC compressor and the alternator on this '94 Camry, same as a lot of this era Camry's with a 3.0 liter engine. The only tools you'll need are a 10 mm wrench and 13 mm and 14 mm sockets with a ratchet and maybe a small extension might help.

You want to use a 10 mm wrench to disconnect the negative battery cable. Loosen up this bolt here. You can also remove this 12 mm bolt.
First we'll loosen up this 14 mm bolt. Now you want to loosen this 13 mm bolt down here and then as you loosen this 13 mm bolt, you'll see my belt start to loosen. Once you have it loosened up, just pull the belt off the alternator and then from around the crank pulley and the AC pulley. Pull it up and out.

Put the belt back on. You have to bend it this way to get it in front of your AC compressor. Then I'm going to get it around the crank pulley and the AC pulley. Pull your belt up and on. Make sure it's on your AC. Make sure it's on your crank pulley. Then I'm going to speed this up a little bit. You want to be able to press in the middle of the belt and have about a quarter inch of play. Then you know it's tight enough. Now you can tighten up your 13 mm bolt here. Now you can tighten up your 14 mm bolt here. Now reconnect the negative battery cable. Push it down on and tighten your 10 mm.

We hope this helps you out. Brought to you by, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the internet. Please feel free to call us toll free at 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the internet and in person.
