with the indulgence of mrsno,
Could you pls post back with the model # of the JBL stereo system?
Initially, this may be of some help. It is the basic radio wiring/connectors of Mecury, Ford and Lincoln.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

The tensioner is not adjustable, the spring in it provides a preset tension, I don't understand what you did, but if it came apart then most likely you damaged it, buy a new one, if you get it wrong and it falls apart on the road you are stuck.

This is extremely important on some cars, for instance my BMW. 1. Have the car parked in a slight uphill slope. Make sure there is enough coolant in the expansion jar.
2. Start the engine and wait for the thermostat to open (upper radiator hose becomes warm).
3. Open up the radiator bleeding nipples slightly with a large screwdriver (bleeding nipples normally made of plastic with a '+* for a screwdriver to fit, at the highest points in the cooling circuit).
4. Allow air bubbles to fizzle out until you get a steady stream of coolant leaking out, use rags to capture leaking coolant.
5. Then close the bleeding nipples, switch off the engine and wait a few minutes for pressure to come down.
6. Open up the cap on the expansion vessel carefully and fill just below the "hot" marking.
7. Check levels again after a few miles and refill further if needed.

follow the top radiator hose to engine,the piece the hose connects to is the thermostat housing,remove the hose then the two bolts holding down housing and there is your thermostat
