Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
1999 saab serpatine replacement tension
Hi,the serpentine belt is tensioned automatically by means of a spring loaded tensioner,this is released by using a long 1/2 inch extension bar which fits into a square hole, once pulled back the tensioner can then be held by a nail etc, which is inserted into a hole which aligns with another hole,thus holding the tensioner back in a pre-loaded position to allow you to replace the belt,once replaced you can then pull back the extension bar to remove the nail again and then slowly let off the tension, IF replacing the tensioner, The new one comes pre-loaded with a pin in location to hold it ,hope this is of some help, Bill.
