These belts are auto tensioned, if it has a problem the belt or the tensioner pulley are defective.

I have a 1994 chevy cavalier 2.2, i replaced the belt tensioner, how do you set the tensioner so it will keep the belt tight? I loosened the bolt and got the belt tight, then i tested it and the belt...


U do not loosen any bolts to adjust tension.tighten all bolts first.Then with a 3/8 ratecht in the slot of the belt tensioner rotate the tensioner until you can install the belt correctly.then release the tensioner and take out the ratchet.

Locating the belt tensioner on a 1998 chev to change alternator


It is the center pulley. It is attached to the engine block through a short arm that holds the tensioner spring.

How do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt


You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.

Serpentine belt tensioner will not tighten


If the tensioner will not keep the belt tight then the tensioner is bad and will need to be replaced. The spring on the inside will loose it's tension over time.
