Question about Hyundai Motor 2004 Sonata
Need to replace ac compressor but can't loosen tensioner please help
You have to loosen the holding bolt first on the tension pulley in the center of it. At the side you will find a bolt to loosen the belt. The power steering pump and alternator is where you find the tension bolts for them. The A/c is tightened by a separate pulley.

Your tensioner pulley is most likely spring loaded with a square slot and it made for a 3/8 inch drive ratchet set your ratchet to loosen stick it in the hole and give it a little crank it is spring loaded so you'll have to hold of their why you pulled the belt off but it will loosen the belt and should be really easy to slip off

the belt that goes on the alt. ?? if so the tensioner is accessed from under neath the car. You will have to remove the right side tire and plastic sheild that is in place. When you look up at the bottom pulley you will see a nut head. If you lay on your back and look up at the engine, it will be located on the left or front side of the car.

With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

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.
