SOURCE: Serpentine belt diagram for 2003 chevy cavalier 2.2l ohc

That pulley is the tensioner pulley. It is either manual or automatic. If it is a manual tensioner, the bracket that it is attached to it should have a square hole located on it bracket somewhere. This whole will look inoculous, but will be offset from the pulley. If you have a 3/4" socket wrench, you'll notice it fits nicely into this hole.

You use this hole (and the wrench) to twist the whole bracket and apply tension while you tighten the bracket itself down.

An automatic tensioner will have a spring inside and would pretty much work by itself when a belt of the proper length is installed. Your Hanynes manual would have already alerted you to how to adjust an automatic tensioner.

I hope that helps.

BTW, the tensioner pully usually rests on the back (flat) side of the belt and has no device attached to it.

Cant ajust tensioner pully


You have a (spring loaded) tensioner. I usually use a rachet and whatever size socket the bolt requires and use a 2 foot hollow pole as a pull handle.. Put the socket and rachet on the bolt, slip the pole over the handle of the rachet and push the tensioner back which will give you the slack room you need to install the belt. Make sure you have the belt around all the other pulley's so it will be a easier to slip it on to your tensioner. This tensioner should adjust itself by spring action.

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.

Need to change pully


Which One?
60a96c9.jpg The one on the left has two 14mm fasteners 1 nut & 1 bolt. The one on the right has the same 1 14mm nut and 1 14mm bolt. Both are simple to replace. Step 1: Relieve the tension on the pully you wish to replace. Step 2: remove the pully (front) by removing the 14mm nut. To remove the rear tensioner pully, remove both nut & bolt.

Tension pulley has fallen off and needs replacing


The tension pully should be accessable from the top of the fender. If one of th bolts broke, then an easy out will have to be utilized to remove the old bolt . Yes it could be wear and tear that makes this happen.
