The belt tensioner has a heavy duty spring in it were it does not need any sort of adjustments done to it. If the tensioner seems loose to you, replace it before you loose your bely while driving

Replace serpentine belt mercedes sprinter van 313 cdi


Hey Outbackski, its not really hard to do FIRST take a photo of how the belt is routed (lots of them ),you may see a diagram under hood ,and it should show you a tentioner pulley , that does all the adjustment for you , it will have a 3/8 -to 1/2 square hole in it put your ratchet in it and eather push or pull on it and you will see you have slack in belt, look very careful how it comes off ,and replace with new one, after you get the new one on ,and your back to the tentioner ,apply force on ratchet, and slip belt over itit might be tight but it will go on if you did it right.
good luck .

How do I replace an alternator/fan belt on a 1984 Nissan datsun Pickup?


#1 loosen the Alternator drive Belt adjusting bolt, and remove the belt. Install new belt,tighten the adjusting bolt to give you the propper belt tention. At the longest span between two polleys at the midway point press down with your thumb and you should not be able to move the belt more than 1/4 of an inch. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

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)

there should be a tention pully that is spring loaded and you will need a socket to fit the bolt in the center. then turn clock wise and hold to release tention and set belt in place then slowly release the pully

What is adjusted in order to replace serpentine belt or tighten belt on 1997 GMC 454 3500 Truck? The air pump had siezed up- so I removed pulley and now have slack. Thanks in advance. Art


That serpentine belt system is designed to have all pulies in place.. The tention pully keeps it tight.. If you remove one of the pullies - the tention pully will not adjust that far..
The only options are - find a somewhat shorter belt with maching matching width and thickness.. Or replace the air pump..
Not the greatest news - I know.. But it is what it is my freind ;o)

Alternator


The tension is set automatically with the belt tensioner. It looks like a pulley. You put a wrench or socket on the bolt in the center of the tensioner and apply pressure. It is spring loaded. As you apply the pressure it will release the tension on the belt for removal or installation.
