Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
There should be two or three bolts that hold it in place. One place will
have a slot where the bolt goes through, this allows the alt to move back and forth so the belt can be tightened, Use two open end or box
wrenches after you locate the bolts, one on the front and one on back.
Tighten which ever end you have room to move the wrench, you can probably use a socket on the front and a box end wrench on the back.
If your asking how to tighten the belt, loosen the bolts that hold the alt,just slightly, you will have to find something to hold the alt in place so there is tension on the belt and re tighten the bolts. Be care as not to damage the alt, you might need someone to help you, one apply s tension and one tightens the bolts.
Before I had a tension set, I used a large screwdriver, just be careful not to hurt anything.
