14 or 15mm socket to release tension. Use socket with leverage bar push/pull towards driver side. Will notice tension releasing, pull belt. Use 5/16 allen wrench for bolt in center, 12 mm socket for mounting bolt. Remove bolts, remove tensioner.

Possibly, I would check alignment of the pulleys, they should all be on the same plane. Run the engine and watch it.

Replacing serpentine belt


Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram that you will need depending on your engine size (2.0L or 3.0L) and your options (AC/No AC ect.).
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2001/make/mazda/model/tribute/2001_mazda_tribute_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.


Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

Cannot get tensioner to release the arm, even a smidge, so we can


If you have a breaker bar with a socket on the Tensioner pulley bolt, you should be able to rotate the tensioner downward to release the belt. If it does not move downward, your tensioner may be seized up and need replacement. The tensioner is behind and to the left of the tensioner pulley, just above the alternator.

Replace drive belt


you put a bar in there with the right socket and pull up on it or down and don't try to adjust it and once the belt is on right and start the car it will adjust itself
