If it is a V6 the tensioner is located on the left side of engine when looking at it, between the crank pulley and the ac and alternator. If you look at the belt and follow it around you will see the tensioner which normally has the smallest pulley on it. There should also be a belt routing diagram on the fender or by radiator, this too shows the location of the tensioner.

Change a serpentine belt on a 1996 chevy cavalier


Diagram should be under the hood
The auto tensioneris down low and dificult to get to.
If it has not been changed in a while you will need a long thin push stick and a serpentine tool.
Push on the belt hard at the auto adjuster and pop the belt off the smooth pully (located top).
hook up the serpentine belt tool and then mount the new belt

How do replace the tensioner pulley on a 2.2 engine 4 cyl. 1998 chevy cavelier .


there are two bolts located behind the pully on the mounting bracket arm, (you have to use a 1/2 inch drive bar in the idler pully to move it so you can see the bolts) That will help you with locating the bolts, while you are moving the pully you might as well take the belt off to save time, After you remove the old idler pully install the new one, use your 1/2 drive bar on the pully to put your belt back on. Pretty simple job, good luck!

Installation of new serpentine belt on 2002 Chevy Cavalier


Use a 3/8" socket end to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise. It may seem stiff, but that's a good thing... you want the tension to be there. After it's off the tensioner the belt will pretty much just come out of place and off the other pulleys. ***make sure you orientate the belt as it was originally (ac or w/ ac)...diagram should be on the front shroud.

Serpentine belt diagram for 2003 chevy cavalier 2.2l ohc


That pulley is the tensioner pulley. It is either manual or automatic. If it is a manual tensioner, the bracket that it is attached to it should have a square hole located on it bracket somewhere. This whole will look inoculous, but will be offset from the pulley. If you have a 3/4" socket wrench, you'll notice it fits nicely into this hole.

You use this hole (and the wrench) to twist the whole bracket and apply tension while you tighten the bracket itself down.

An automatic tensioner will have a spring inside and would pretty much work by itself when a belt of the proper length is installed. Your Hanynes manual would have already alerted you to how to adjust an automatic tensioner.

I hope that helps.

BTW, the tensioner pully usually rests on the back (flat) side of the belt and has no device attached to it.

How do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt


You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.
