Question about Kia Sportage
The tensioner acts as an idler pulley and is located on either the inside or outside
of the accessory drive belt. Its provides the correct tension for
initial belt adjustment and maintains this critical tension adjustment
during vehicle operation. It can be found on conventional V-belts and
the newer serpentine ribbed belts.
there is an adjustment tab or hook under neath and you just about have to lay flat on your back pull up the tension and have someone else tighten the bolts from above.
with everything aligned loosen the tensioner nut and pry it to the left with a small crowbar or long screw driver or something elongated. When the tensioner pully is pushed as far as it will go to the left, tighten the nut. This will make it much easier to get the belt off and on.
if u feel i ve been of help... kindly rate my service....

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.
