There is a tensioner on the belt drive. if you look you will see a hole that you can fit a 3/8" breaker bar into and pull. this will slacken off the belt.

Alternator


First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.

2002 Chevy Cavalier how 2 replace radiator hose and a belt


First thing I would do is get your supplies. Antifreeze, lower radiator hose, 2 new hose clamps, serpintine belt, and I would purchase a Chiltons repair manual for your car. It is abour $15 for the manual but it will cover about very repair you will need to make as time goes on.
On newer cars you have to hold the automatic tensioner back with a wrench as you uninstall or reinstall the belt. Make sure you know or remember how the belt runs. You can put the belt most of the way on, then hold back the tensioner for the last step.
For the lower radiator hose, you need to drain the antifreeze from the radiator. The drain plug is usually on the bottom or the on the bottom engine side of the radiator. Make sure you drain it in a pan/ bucket/ pail as I believe it is against the law to drain it out on the ground and watch that pets/humans don't drink it because they will die. After draining it unsrew the clamps holding the hose on and remove the hose. Sometimes the hose will be stuck and twisting it or running a screw driver between the hose and the fitting will loosen the hose. Put the new hose on with the new clamps. I always use new clamp so you don't have to trust the old beat up/ stretched clamps. But don't throw out the old ones, as you may need them for an emergency repair sometime. Either put the old fluid back in(if it is still good) or put in the new stuff. Make sure you get the right mixture. You will need to run it a while and have the mixture checked.
Like I said about the book----it should cover both of these repairs, and tell you when to do routine maintence, the capacities of your fuel tank, radiator, oil, transmission, etc.

I hope this helps

I need to know where the belt tensioner is located to change my serpintine belt.


Just to make sure you have the right part (belt Tensioner), If you push and pull on the serpentine belt, look for the pulley that moves with the belt. That will be the Belt tensioner pulley, there is going to be a slot on the tension arm for a ratchet so you can take the tension off the old belt and slid it off the idler pulley or any one of the other pully's. Good luck and hope this made sense, keep me posted be glad to help.

1992 chevy cavalier serpintine belt how do i loosen it


To replace the belt push (rotate) the belt tensioner and remove the belt. Use a 15mm socket on the 4-cyl. engines and a 3 / 4 in. open end wrench on the V6 engines.

Replace serpintine belt


You shouldn't need to most of the time all you need is a 15mm wrench. Use it by turning the spring tightener inward toward the center of the motor than the belt should come off. Also when you take it off make sure you know how the belt goes around the pulleys so everything will work together like normal. when putting the belt on you should use the wrench to turn the tightener back inward and slip the belt back on and make sure it looks just like the old one when its on.
