I believe the air conditioner belt tensioner bolt is underneath the mounting bracket on the compressor, then you can remove the alternator belt by loosening the two bolts from underneath on the alternator then loosen the top bolt and be careful prying the alternator inward to loosen the belt you can short a wire connection. Remove one of the battery cables to be safe!

Adjust tension on fan belt 91 geo storm


Posted 3 time now (STORM is, a Isuzu Impulse)
and not ONE TIME>>" direction for loose. easy !


the early 1991, was 1.6L and has no SERP
end SERP:
they run old fashion V belts, did you even look first to see what is there?

its not a serp, in 1991.
but many posters here get year wrong, and that.
ISUZU engines per this list
1.6 L 4XE1 DOHC I4 (US, Canada only) 12valve
1.6 L 4XE1W turbo DOHC I4, 16valve.
1.8 L 4XF1 DOHC I4
the fan V belt , IIRC is the water pump,fan and alternator V belt.
if that is the belt you are alluding to then the alternator
pivots and adjust to tension it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwPFTGnb5NI

now ill quote the fsm on the 1.6L with v belts.
here we go, what you mean by fan , my guess is Alternator belt, its called that because the ALT is the adjustment.



Loosen the component-to-mounting bracket bolts.

Use a belt tension gauge (J-23600-B or equivalent) to determine proper belt adjustment; place the gauge at the center of the belt between the longest span.

Applying belt tension pressure on the component, adjust the drive belt tension to the correct specification:

For 1990 and 1991 vehicles, adjust the power steering pump belt to 145 lbs on vehicles with A/C or to 90 lbs on vehicles without A/C.

For 1990 - 1992 vehicles, adjust a new alternator belt to 140-180 lbs or a used belt to 110-150 lbs.

For 1992 power steering pump belts and 1993 vehicles, adjust the belt so that 22 lbs of thumb pressure produces the specified belt deflection at the center of the belt, between 2 pulleys. Under proper belt tension a new belt should deflect about 0.31-0.47 in. (8-12mm) or a used belt about 0.28-0.43 in. (7-11mm).

While holding the correct tension on the component, tighten the component-to-mounting bracket bolt.

When the belt tension is correct, remove the tension gauge."
end quote, if not clear after Ive posted all 3 engines, say so or ask a question.

Timing belt geo metro 95 hatchback


roll the crankshaft pulley around until u get the mark to line up with 0 or TDC. once u get the cover off mark the cam sproket to the head with whiteout and mark the crank gear to the block also. (in case they move on you. loosen tensioner and pry to one side.tighten tensioner bolt and remove the belt. install new belt and get the slack to move toward the tensioner side. (u may have to move the cam slightly to allow all the slack to go toward the tensioner. then move it back to the mark, making sure the crank didnt move. loosen tensioner bolt and let it spring toward the belt and apply pressure with yr hand a little more snug while u tightn bolt. then rotate the crankshaft 2 revolutions by hand and your marks should line back up. if the marks are more than 1/2 tooth off u must re do it!

I have a 2000 geo metro that the fan belt squeals when its cold-do I have to change the water pump when I change the belt?


As long as the squeal is from the belt and the pump is not leaking, I don't see any reason to change the water pump. If it is the main drive belt and not the A/C belt, you use the alternator for belt tension. You don't have to remove the screws, you only need to loosen them enough to allow the alternator to move. If I remember correctly, There are 2 bolts. 1 on a track which allows it to move in and out and the other more or less acts like the hinge. The A/C belt (if you have A/C) has its own tensioner which is easier to get to under the car. 2 screws, 1 locks it, the other is the adjustment. I am going by memory so if I'm not quite right that is why. I hope this helps.
