Hey guys,

My belt snapped on the way to work last night. I have a new belt and tensioner on the way, but I didn't realize my truck was equipped with dual alternators and the belt I have coming is for a single alternator. I called all local shops and the dealership and theyd all have to special order the belt.

Is it okay to just bypass the second alternator all together? I dont have anything that draws a significant amount of power installed.



1 3D673 Power steering pump pulley
2 19A216 Accessory drive belt idler pulleys
3 8A528 Water pump pulley
4 6B209 Accessory drive belt tensioner (A/C compressor drive belt)
5 6312 Crankshaft pulley
6 8620 Accessory drive belt (A/C compressor)
7 19D784 A/C clutch pulley
8 6B209 Accessory drive belt tensioner
9 10344 Generator pulley (single generator)
10 10344 Generator pulley (dual generator, if equipped)
11 8620 Accessory drive belt (dual generator)
12 8620 Accessory drive belt (single generator)

Yeah, you can, but you'll proll'y get a CEL. The second alternator is controlled by the computer. If you bypass it, the computer will know and not be happy.
