Many brands use reverse threads on tensioner bolts. Try turning it in the "tighten" direction.

SOURCE: Alternator

Are you meaning the belt? They are a one belt operation that uses a spring tentioner to keep it tight. You need a belt tentioning tool to "turn" it to get the belt loose. This usually is a square 3/8" hole that a rachet will fit into. The special tool makes it easier to do.
There is no adjustment, as the spring keeps the belt at a correct tention.

I own a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L ES. When i turn my car on the Auxiliary belt makes a squealing noise for a bit then it stops. But it doesnt always make this noise, and it has something to do with...


hi there, here is what i have found for you, i hope it helps:
  • Look at where the drive belts are located on your Mitsubishi Galant. Depending on models, you may need to jack up the vehicle to access the bolts for the belts.

  • Find the bolt assembly for the belt. This bolt structure will be on or near the main component that the belt serves. Look at all of the pulleys around which the belt winds, and you will find a bolt system to adjust tension. For an alternator belt, the bolt system is by the alternator. For a power steering belt, look near the power steering pump.
  • Find the lock nut that holds the long adjustment bolt in place and use your wrench to loosen it. This is the bolt the loosens the belt tension so that you can remove it.
  • Turn the adjustment bolt. Turning the adjustment bolt moves the component either toward the engine in order to loosen belt tension, or away from the engine in order to tighten belt tension.
  • Slip off the old belt and install the new one, once the belt tension is released. Make sure the belt is correctly seated on all pulleys.
  • Turn the adjustment bolt the other way to bring the component away from the engine and add belt tension. Test the belt for correct tension by pressing on it and checking deflection.
  • Tighten the adjustment lock bolt and the pivot bolt, when the belt has the right tension.
  • cheers

    Disconnect the battery negative cable.
    Remove 12mm (3) and 14mm (4) bolts holding skidplate on and remove skidplate
    Loosen the 14mm nut on the tensioner, then unscrew the tensioner adjuster bolt until the belt can slide off.
    Unplug the alternator electrical connector.
    Unbolt the alternator cable lug (12mm or 13mm depending on alternator manufacturer)
    Remove lower 12mm bolt
    Remove upper 14mm pivot bolt
    Use large screwdriver to pry alternator off bracket, it pinches on when the pivot bolt is tightened.
    Drop alternator out bottom of engine bay; helps to unbolt or bend transmission cooler lines out of the way.

    How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer


    I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
    Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
    If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
    Then remount the Alternator.
    Then readjust the tension bolt.
    Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
    good luck.
