Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
How do I change my belt tensioner
Jack up o/s of car and support on stand
Remove front o/s wheel
remove bottom engine covers from inside o/s wheel arch and also bottom engine cover(plastic)
support engine with jack; remove yolk engine mount ( on belt side)
Put 1/2" extension drive into top of belt tensioner and pull toward engine - you can now put a 3mm drill bit or allen key into hole at side of tensioner to hold in position.
remove serpentine belt
from underneath car, use 8mm ( I think) allen key to remove centre bolt from belt tensioner
It should now come off of the car
fitting is the reverse of the above
hope it helps
