Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker
ALL serpentine belts have a tension pulley which holds the belt tight to the various equipment it turns (water pump, alternator, a/c compressor, etc). Find the one spot where the belt goes over a component that has nothing connected to it, and you have found the belt tensioner. The tensioner is designer with a nut on the face of it so that you can put a socket wrench on it; by 'unscrewing' the socket wrench, you should be able to release the tension on the belt - it will take some pressure to release. Once you have tested this, you can pull onthe socket wrench and remove the belt; replace it witha new one and take off the socket wrench. Make SURE you have the correct belt and be careful with the socket wrench; it takes lots of pressure to keep the belt tight.
