SOURCE: Changing Serpentine Belt

That bolt keeps the belt tensioner on. There are two bolts on a typcial tensioner. One to keep the pully on, the other to keep the whole asembly on. Since it's a GM, you should either see a square hole, around 3/8 in or a raised slot. You can put a 3/8 braker bar in the hole and you push it to remove the tension. No need to remove any bolts. Or, there could be a slot sticking out on it, you can put a wrench on it and push it to remove tension. When there is no tension, you slip off the belt from any pully, i prefeer slipping it off a top pully for easier access, and same for instaliton. Set the new bet up the way your old one was exepct for the highest pulley, remove the tension from tensioner, slip belt back on last pully and let the tensioner do it's job. If you remove the bolt that keeps the tensioner on, it will pop off and easily hurt yourself. After the new belt is on, make sure it is on correctly. There are small ribs on the inside of the belt, if those aren't in the groves properly of all the pullies, the belt will not last as long.

Are you needing advice, links, tricks, or all of the above?
If it's advice you want:
If you are not buying an after market harness and all of the oem wiring is intact replace one wire at a time from the component all the way back to the fuse box. Its tedious but, it's a sure fire way to get it right the first time.

Secondly, I'd by a haynes manual or some other wiring diagram. Study it for at least a couple weeks or until you are completely comfortable taking on the task.

Color code your wires and label both the old and new ones with paper tape and a permanent marker so that you know what each one is for.

Last but not least, make sure that the battery is disconnected... ;o)

How do you loosen a power steering tensioner on a 86 Chevy caprice?


I've got an 85 2.5 celebrity and am assuming that your 86 is similar. Most people might think this is a incorrect question, but I've spend hours trying to locate all the bolts to loosen. The alternator belt is straightforward. Loosen the alternator bolt in located in the slider portion and the pivot bolt (15mm on mine). The compressor belt is straightforward. Loosen the two compressor adjustment bolts in the slider slot and the loosen the pivot bolt. This belt will be hard to remove even with the compressor fully pushed down. Take some vitamins. The worse belt by far is the power steering belt. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the power steering "canister". There are two adjustment bolts to loosen from my memory. The one that is easy to find is on the engine side of the power steering canister. The other is hard to see but is located on the pulley side between two of the pulleys. It's also hard to get a wrench on. But, you've got to find and loosen this bolt. I cringe when this belt breaks. Good Luck!!

How to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13



ADJUSTMENT

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.

ADJUSTMENT 1.8L Engines ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT
  1. Loosen the alternator adjusting bolt.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt. NOTE: Do not pry against the stator frame. Position the prybar against a stronger point, such as the area around a case bolt. Fig. 1: A belt tension gauge should be placed on the longest span of the belt to check tension — 1.8L engine 90981g05.gif

  4. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  5. Adjust the tension to 86–103 lbs. (383–461 N) for a new belt or 68–86 lbs. (304–383 kg) for a used belt.
  6. If a belt tension gauge is not available, adjust the tension to 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm) deflection for a new belt or 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm) deflection for a used belt.
  7. Tighten the alternator adjusting bolt to 14–19 ft. lbs. (19–25 Nm).
  8. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 2: Alternator and water pump pulley belt routing — 1.8L engine 90981g06.gif
POWER STEERING PUMP BELT
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Loosen the power steering pump mounting bolt and nuts.
  3. Adjust the power steering pump and, if equipped, the air conditioning compressor belt tension by turning the pump adjusting bolt. Fig. 3: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models without A/C 90981g07.gif

  4. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut near the pump adjusting bolt.
  5. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  6. Adjust the tension to 110–132 lbs. (491–589 N) for a new belt or 95–110 lbs. (422–491 N) for a used belt.
  7. Check for proper belt deflection. For a new belt (one with less than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm). For a used belt (one with more than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm).
  8. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut, located near the adjusting bolt, to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Tighten the pump mounting bolt behind the pulley to 27–40 ft. lbs. (36–54 Nm), and the remaining pump mounting nut to 23–34 ft. lbs. (31–46 Nm).
  10. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 4: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models with A/C 90981g08.gif
1.9L Engines The accessory drive belt for 1.9L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. Fig. 5: Drive belt routing — 1.9L engines 86751052.gif
