Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
If you have a full size Montero (non-sport), you only have a serpentine belt; it drives the AC as well.

SOURCE: belt tensioner
It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have
to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and
lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted
to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power
steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have
to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower
timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The tensioner is located underneath the lower cover along side the timing belt on the passenger side. It has two bolts that
hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.
The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.
It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.
When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.
And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace the tensioner, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it right.
I hope this helps.
