Question about 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Look right around where your alternator is and you will see a idler pulley that has a square hole in the front of it. You can stick your 3/8 Ratchet in that hole and turn it down to release the belt tension. If there is not a square hole then there should be a bolt on the front you can put a socket on and use your breaker bar to turn the spring loaded tensioner down to remove the belt. To put it back on is reverse of what I told you.

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.
