Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
How do I properly set the tension on the belt
Alt belt has a slip torque adjuster. belt should be set to 1/4 to 1/2 inch deflecting pushing on the belt between the longest distance between pulleys. more than that will put to much tension on the belt and less than that will cause it to slip when wet or under heavy acceleration.

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
