      OK
      The fan and generator V belt is not worn or damaged.

    NG
    OK
  3. CHECK GENERATOR PULLEY WITH CLUTCH FOR WEAR


    1. Check the grooves of the generator pulley with clutch for wear or damage.

      OK
      The grooves of the generator pulley with clutch are not worn or damaged.

    NG
    OK
  4. CHECK FOR NOISE WHILE CLUTCH PULLEY IS OPERATING


    1. Start the engine and check the generator pulley with clutch for looseness.

      OK
      The generator pulley with clutch is not loose.

    NG
    OK
  5. INSPECT GENERATOR PULLEY WITH CLUTCH (UNIT INSPECTION)


    1. Remove the generator assembly Click here.

    2. Check the installation condition of the generator pulley cap.

      OK
      The generator pulley cap is not loose or missing.
    3. Check for grease leaks (for wet pulley) or particle formation due to friction (for dry pulley).

      OK
      No grease leaks (for wet pulley) or large build-up of particles (for dry pulley).
    4. Check the generator pulley with clutch for misalignment (interference with the generator assembly).

      OK
      The generator pulley with clutch is correctly aligned (no interference with the generator assembly).
    5. A003CJY

      Turn the generator pulley with clutch clockwise and counterclockwise by hand and check for noise.

      OK
      Noise does not occur when turned in both directions.
    6. Turn the generator pulley with clutch clockwise and counterclockwise by hand and visually check for runout.

      OK
      The generator pulley with clutch does not have runout.
    7. A003CBL

      Using a screwdriver, hold the fan of the generator rotor assembly located inside the generator assembly in place and check that the generator pulley with clutch locks when turned clockwise and turns freely when turned counterclockwise.

      OK
      The generator pulley with clutch locks when turned clockwise and turns freely when turned counterclockwise.

    NG
    OK
  6. CHECK FOR NOISE WHEN ROTOR IS TURNING FREELY


    1. Perform a road test and check that noise does not occur when decelerating.

      OK
      Noise does not occur.
    2. Turn the engine off and check that no noise is produced by the generator pulley with clutch as the engine stops.

      OK
      Noise does not occur.

    NG
    OK
  7. CHECK ENGAGEMENT OF GENERATOR PULLEY WITH CLUTCH


    1. Remove the generator assembly Click here.

    2. A003CBL

      Using a screwdriver, hold the fan in the generator rotor assembly located inside the generator assembly in place and check that the generator pulley with clutch locks when turned clockwise (locking direction).

      OK
      The generator pulley with clutch locks.

    NG
    OK
