Is the power steering pump how the belt is tensioned or is there another way? When loosened there is no give in the belt.
Slacken fixing bolts then look for the adjuster its like a long threaded bolt,but you must slacken the retaining bolts on the pump or it wont move

Tips for a great answer:
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.
