There is a tensioner pulley that when you put your wrench on it and tighten it will move the pulley and give enough slack to put new belt on

    which pulley is the tension pulley the drive water pump pulley or the ac pulley

  • weekend_mech Mar 30, 2014

    it will look different than other pulleys, similar to this

    which one is it

  • tyler sarrette
    tyler sarrette Mar 31, 2014

    OK which one is it

  • weekend_mech Mar 31, 2014

    it will look like this

  • tyler sarrette
    tyler sarrette Mar 31, 2014

    an you loosen the nut in the middle of that pulley

  • weekend_mech Mar 31, 2014

    if you tighten it then it will relieve the tension. Tighten the nut/bolt and it will move the pulley and give you enough slack to put belt on. You have to hold it in the tightening position while putting belt on, the release it and it will tighten the belt to the correct tension once you let it go. Hope this makes sense

SOURCE: Changing a 1991 Mazda Protege Serpentine Belt

You've got to loosen the mounting bolt first, which is located behind the pulley itself. Rotate the pulley until the large opening allows access to the bolt, then use a socket with a narrow head to turn the bolt, just until it starts to turn freely.
Then there are two locknuts on the adjuster; one right near the mounting bolt and one underneath towards the middle of the pump. Loosen both of those, and then *finally* you'll be able to turn the adjusting bolt that faces the front end of the car on the end of the adjuster arm. It's a long bolt; just keep turning that thing until the belt loosens enough to come off the pulley.
Best of luck!

How do u tighten the altenater belt on a 1994 Mazda bubble it's makin a high pitch noise when it starts


There should be a bolt at the top of the alternator that allows it to tilt away from the engine. Loosen (but do not remove) this bolt and tilt the alternator out. You may have to loosen the pivot bolt at the bottom, and you may need to CAREFULLY lever the alternator away from the engine to get the belt tight enough. The other possible solution to this problem is to lube the belt with 'drylube' or something similar, and this should be your first fix unless you are sure that the belt is loose. Having the belt too tight will cause other, more expensive problems.
