Crank the 1995 Geo Prism for about ten seconds to completely seat the ribs of the new belt to the grooves of each accessory pulley. Turn the engine off.
The engine accessories on the front of the 1995 Geo Prism include the alternator, power steering pump, air conditioner compressor and the water pump. The belt that operates all of the front engine accessories is a single multi-ribbed serpentine belt. The belt is designed to fit around each of the accessories at the same time. This allows all of the engine accessories to work from the same belt. If the belt starts to show any visible damage, change it immediately before it breaks and prevents the accessories from working.
