Replace alternator


Should be automatic tension-er on that model, just rotate it one way or the other to release the tension, remove old belt, then re-install new one, release the tensioner to take up slack.

Need to know how to take the tension off alternator belt to change alternator


There is normally a spring loaded tension pulley that you can release tension on by using a ratchet or breaker bar placed in the square hole on the arm holding the pulley.

How do I release the tension on the serpentine belt. I tried turning the center bolt on the tensioner clockwise and counterclockwise with no results. The bolt won't move. I am trying to replace the dead...


You have a belt tensioner on this car. It simply keeps the belt stretched at the max at a very tight fit. You will notice a 3/8" square hole in the middle of the housing. That is were a 3/8 ratchet will be placed to apply pressure to releive the tensioner to remove the belt

Looking to replace my alternator on a 1999 ford taurus but dont know how to loosen the belt


To loosen the belt use a 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley. Turn clockwise if you have a OHV engine or counterclockwise if your engine is OHC. Turning this bolt will release pressure on the belt allowing you to remove it from the other pulleys.To identify the tensioner pulley it is just above and to the right of your crankshaft.
Hope this was helpful.

Which is suppose to be the tension pully on a 1997 ford taurus? i need to replace the alternator and need to release the tension from the belt.


it's the round wheel that looks like it's not driving any accessory. use a 3/8 inch socket pry bar to relieve the tension so you can get the belt off..... make sure you know how to get the belt back on properly

You may have a self tensioner which applies belt tension with a spring.

Look for a spot to put a 1/'2"drive breaker bar on it and release the belt tension, then slide the belt off and install new belt. You may need a helper to remove the belt while you hold the tension off,
