I'm changing the altanator on a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire. How do I release the belt tension?

Loosen the tensioner for the accessory belt for the alternator and remove the belt. Remove the two long bolts that are holding the alternator in the bracket.
(Sometimes you have to remove the tensioner arm completely or just loosen it and it will slide over to relieve tension on belt)

I am changing the Serpentine belt in my 2000 Sunfire. How do I get it on???

you need to follow the diagram (label on the hood) and you need a special wrench to put down the binder (wheel that give pressure on the belt) or try to push on it with a long stick just to give you the chance to slip the belt on top of it.

How do i loosen and remove the belt from my 95 pontiac sunfire

I beleive you need a 15 mm socket and a large rachet or breaker bar, find the belt tensioner position the socket and turn it away from the belt until it is loose enough to come out. Slowly release the pressure until the belt tensioner is fully relaxed.

Careful and good luck

Unable to change serpentine belt on 2000 sunfire 2.2.litre we run the belt through properly and there is still excess belt left over do you need to tighten any pulleys and if so with what tool?

No,check the routing again,on the back of the package it came in,Or you got a belt for a 2.2 with AC and you don't have it.And the last possibility is they just gave you the wrong belt,Maybe go to a different auto store
