The tension release pulley, located just below and in front of alternator, has a 1-2 slot in the center of pulley. Insert the 1-2 inch breaker bar in middle of tension pulley and pull up, tension will be released. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer, thanks.

Cant find drive belt tensioner bolt to loosen serpintine belt


The serpentine belt tensioner / pulley is on the front of the engine, and part of the belt 'routing'.

Its job is to put tension on the belt as it drives the other devices like the power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor.

It is an aluminum casting that mounts with a single bolt to the engine. The pulley is attached to the arm.

There are a few ways to move / pry the arm inwards, thus releasing the tension on the belt for removing/installing: grab on the pulley bolt (15mm?) with a wrench, or some later models have an opening for a 3/8th socket wrench to attach to directly without a socket.

1999 ford windstar altenator


there is a tensioner on the belt... it's a pulley near the back by the firewall that doesn't appear to drive anything. you will note a square hole in the side of it... that fits a 3/8 in ratchet.... use a long pry bar with that socket type ... on mine you have to pull it down i believe to remove tension... try it to make sure which direction it has to move.

How to replace an alternator on a 96 lincoln continental 4.6 V8


take out the top 4 bolts above the altenator, between those metal tubes on the metal bracket. then u have 1 bolt holding the wires to the altenator on that bracket aswell remove that. then remove the coolant reserve bottle and stick a breaker bar or rend of a ratchet in the tenchenor pulley square slot pull it back twords the head lights the belt will loosten then remove it from the altenator. then u will see 2 more bolts on the bottom side of the altenator by the pulleys and belt. Remove them 2 bolts all the way and the altenator will drop out of the bottom of them metal tubes and slide through the sides of them and its out... its very ez and does not need the tubes removed its a lot ezer than it looks.. sorry about my spelling im an infantryman not a teacher.
