Then I suggest you use a 1/2 inch breaker bar, and the appropriate socket to fit that bolt head, on the tensioner pulley bracket. You want to pull the tensioner pulley away from the serpentine belt, just long enough to slip part of the belt off of a pulley. Any pulley that is easiest to access, doesn't matter. Then slowly release the tensioner pulley, until it's at the rest position.

Before you begin, look at the radiator support, or on the fender well, or maybe up underneath the hood. Look for the diagram that shows the serpentine belt 'path'. If there isn't one present, and you don't have the Owners Manual, I would suggest at this time to make a drawing of the belt's path. Saves a lot of headaches later.

How do you loosen the tensinor to replace surpintine belt


Use a tensioner pulley kit (or a 1/2" breaker bar if equipped with a 1/2" square hole) to release tension on the belt by rotating the tensioner until tension is released on the belt. properly.

Some tensioners don't have a square hole to put a breaker bar, but must be turned at the pulley's stationary hex bolt.

Good luck on replacing the serpentine belt.

I need to know how the belt tensioner works and how do I change the power steering and alternator belt


there is a pulley that the belt goes around that has a square hole in it. A 3/8's ratchet fits into that square hole and you turn it left or right to take the tension off the belt.

hELLO THERE:
NO YOU DO NOT WANT TO LOOSEN THIS BOLT LOOK FOR THE SMALL SQUARE HOLE THAT A SOCKET EXTENSION FITS INTO THIS IS THE HOLE THAT YOU ARE WANTING TO USE AND THEN PUSH IT OVER TO THE DRIVERS SIDE TO MAKE THE TENSIONER LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE BELT SO YOU CAN REMOVE IT OK

Diagram for removing a tensioner from 99 Olds Intrigue 3.8


Either in the center of the tension pulley or on the arm that the tension pulley is bolted to there is a square hole that is the size of the square on a 1/2" ratchet. Take a 1/2" ratchet and stick it in that hole and I think most of them you put it in the tighten position and pull on the ratchet. the tension will release and you can remove the belt.

Good Luck

Replacing the alternater


1. Unhook the battery.
2. Find the pulley the serpentine belt runs on that isn't running anything. This is your tension pulley and it should have a square hole in it or the arm the pulley is bolted too that fits a 1/2" socket ratchet. Put that in the square hole and pull so it loosens the tension on the belt so you can remove it from the alternator pulley. Take note to how the belt goes on before taking off.
3. Take the 2-3 bolts off that hold the alternator in place.
4. Take wire connector plug off of alternator.

And you should have an alternator out of your car.

Good Luck

How to take tension off belt to remove alternator


Look right around where your alternator is and you will see a idler pulley that has a square hole in the front of it. You can stick your 3/8 Ratchet in that hole and turn it down to release the belt tension. If there is not a square hole then there should be a bolt on the front you can put a socket on and use your breaker bar to turn the spring loaded tensioner down to remove the belt. To put it back on is reverse of what I told you.

2000 Lincoln How do you adjust the tension on the motor serpintine belt ?


You don't...I mean you can't adjust the serpentine belt because there is automatic self tensioner which loaded by a very high compression spring. Now, there should be a square hole on the tensioner which is a 1/2 inch. You simply put a half inch breaker bar in the square hole to gain leverage in order to change your belt. Hopefully this helps
