To actually REMOVE the belt you must remove the right front wheel to gain access to remove one long bolt from the motor mount.When you remove that bolt a spacer tube can be removed so that you can slip the belt out.

You have to remove the belt . you can use a long3\8 ratchet to pull up or push down on the tensioner pulley. then just remove the bolt that holds the tensioner to the side of the motor.replace it with a new one and reinstall the belt

How to adjust a tensioner on a 2001 chrysler voyager


You mean your belt tentioner, serpentine belt, it is not adjustable if your belt is coming off you have a bad tentioner, bad pulley or your power stering pump is leaken and your belt is soaked, if oilly firts found your leak (most common is a hose from reservoir to pump) then replace belt with a cheap belt (had lost of trouble with Life time or hi dollar belts), in the mean time also inspect your tentioner if ani play side ways replace it, also remove idle pulley and spun it close to your ear, if any noise replace it, you may get away with a single item changed, but for trouble free time, replace all items: belt tentioner ($38) idle pulley($25) serpentine belt ($25)

Where is belt tensioner and how do you turn it to loosen belt to change


The belt tentioner pully is the idler pully in the serpentine belt system...
You need a long wrnch (11/16??) to fit the pullys center bolt...
Turn the bolt to the right ( righty tighty) and the tentioner will losten its tention on the belt enough to remove the belt...
Imediately replace the belt ... so its routing is not forgotten by time or distraction...
If there is still a sticker on the upper radiator support reflecting the serpintine belt routing.. then you are in a better spot to be doing this ... with distractions...
