Question about 1992 Saab 900
I am trying to replace the drive belts on my 900 i have all the belts and i found the tensioner on the alternator and power steering belts but not the ac belt/idler belt could anyone tell me where it is or send me a diagram of the belt systems
If yuo look by the pu
lley tensioners for each you will find two bolts that secure the tensioners so the tensioner can move freeley the one you are looking for I believe was on the top and middle side of bracket on the left side of rear of engine as you look at the windshield loosen them with a socket then the left tensioner I had to use a open end wrench to loosen the tensioner pulley all the way down as there was no room for a socket wrench. I was a little challenging in all it took me an hour to replace all four belts but that was because the person who owned this car before me had left off the bushing for the alternator leaving it laying in the engine and put the bolt back on eating up two of the four belts entirely. The big trick was getting the two inner belts on first as it was so tight but once I was able to feed them in It was all good to go from there on.I truely hope this helps you by the way tighten the alternator pulley first then proceed to the two outer belts easier to hold them in place that way

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
