there are 2 methods for idler pulleys
all require to loosen the big nut holding the pulley on
some have a bolt at the back of the bracket behind the puller that you rotate either way to adjust off or on
others have a cog that runs on a rack that you turn up or down for the adjustment
remember to re-tension the big nut when finished as the method of adjustment is for adjustment only and is not sufficient to hold the pulley in position
There will an adjustable idler pulley in the system. Loosen of the big nut in front of the pulley and behind the pulley there will be a long adjustable bolt. Turn this bolt and it moves the pulley axle up or down to make the adjustment. Re-tension the big nut when finished.
if you mean the belt that drives the alternator /water pump/power steering pump etc the adjustment for the belt is at the idler pulley. loosen off the nut holding on the pulley and behind the pulley ther should be a long threaded bolt that moves the pulley up or down. When finished retension the idler pulley nut
the adjustment is done by the idler pulley. loosen the nut that holds the pulley on. adjust on or off by the bolt immediately behind the idler pulley. most adjustments are right when the longest section of belt between 2 pulleys can be depressed about the thickness of the belt
The tensioner pulley looks like an idler pulley, only with an adjusting bolt protruding out about 2 inches from just behind the pulley. Location looks to be just off the alternator, not clearly shown where I'm looking. To loosen belt, you loosen the tensioner pulley nut, and then turn the adjusting bolt in to relieve tension. When putting the belt back on, adjust tension with adjustment bolt, then tighten the pulley nut. This is for Sebring Coupe, Convertible is different. Good luck.
Hi, there is a bolt above the idler pulley to adjust. First loosen slightly the center nut on the face of the idler pulley. Then tighten the adjusting bolt to proper tightness on the belt. Finally, retighten the center nut on the face of the idler pulley.
There should be an adjustment pulley (idler pulley) near there for power steering. You have to loosen the center nut on pull first, then on bottom of that bracket that pulley is mounted to, is a bolt to turn one way and the other to loosen, or tighten. It slides pulley up and down to loosen and tighten.
