Question about 1994 Mercury Villager
When I try to loosen the tension pully the pressure goes against the belt and only makes it tighter (that pulling it towart the front of vehicle) and when I push it the other way the nut loosens. what going on, how do i loosen the tension bar.?
You don't lossen the nut holding the pulley
on the tensioner,you pivot the tensioner arm
to loosen the belt
The should be a hole for your ratchet in the arm,
to pull off the tension

there should either be a whole for a ratchet or there is a nut on the tension pulley that you will have to size a socket to. put either tool on and pull in the direction of up( you'll see what i mean when you get there). be gentle once you have the belt in place not to let it snap back into place so as to not cause any damage anywhere else.

It;s located on top of the fuel tank, you will have to remove fuel tank and lower it in order to get to it, there you will also see a valve where the hose hooks up to, this valve might be stuck, thus creating the pressure you are describing. Good Luck.
