    Re: "mrchippeway" The1996 Buick Skylark, 2.4 liter has Belt Tensioner! Adjusting bolt and is located in the center radial axis of idler pulley. A 13mm, 15 degree offset combination wrench with extension is a MANDATORY tool set to free up a frozen spring- loaded tensioner. This aluminum corrosion will give you false sensation that it is a "dead" idler pulley configuration. Work it forward to loosen & fully backward several times to insure effortless dynamic running tension. First Serpentine R&R in 13 years. Thanks... "Mr.T ", ted_porche@yahoo.com.

    PS: unnessary to loosen Alternator, and pulley is inacceasble to breaker bar)

Check if it has a tensioner, it look like a useless pully and put a breaker bar on it and pull it and the belt should loosen up, if theres no tensioner the alternator should have bolts to loosen up the belts.

there is going to be a tensioner pulley near the front of the motor on top that you have to apply pressure to or you can loosen the alternator and take it off that way,just remember how it came off so you can put it back on
