How do I release the tension in the belt that drives the alternator in a 2007 Toyota Highlander V6?


most have a long bolt behind and you loosen of the centre nut so that the bolt behind can move the shaft
ON some v6 engines the tensioner is spring mounted and there is a 1/2 square drive in the front or the bracket
get a long handled 1/2 " strong bar, put the square in the hole and lift the pulley off the belt

the tensioner is spring loaded, you may be able to pry it back out of the way and hold it while someone else slips the belt into place.

Tensioner location on 97 chrysler sebring 2.5L 6 cyl


The tensioner pulley looks like an idler pulley, only with an adjusting bolt protruding out about 2 inches from just behind the pulley. Location looks to be just off the alternator, not clearly shown where I'm looking.
To loosen belt, you loosen the tensioner pulley nut, and then turn the adjusting bolt in to relieve tension. When putting the belt back on, adjust tension with adjustment bolt, then tighten the pulley nut. This is for Sebring Coupe, Convertible is different. Good luck.

How do you get a power steering belt off of a 2004 Toyota Sienna? can't figure how to release tension pulley.


The tension pullies are usually spring loaded so if you need to have the belt replaced there should be a nut on the pulley that you have to put a socket and a long bar on to relieve the tension while you remove the belt.
Hope this helps

Need to change the drive belt on my toyota corolle 2005 model how do i go about it


Hi,

release tension on belt by:

-putting a socket/breaker bar or ratched on the tensioner pulley bolt and use it to relieve tension on the belt

-slide belt off tensioner pulley. replace with new belt in same pattern across all pulleys and again relieve tension on the tensioner puller to slide the new belt back on.

--you may need to remove the bolt on the tensioner closest to the pulley.


---if you don't know what the tensioner looks like look up the part on autozone's website for a picture you can match on your car

Best regards.

How to replace belt on 2002 camry


if it a serpentine belt( one belt all the way around pulleys and tensioner) note the location of the belt before removal. Find the tensioner with a 3/8 drive cutout in the frame and compress it to relieve the tension on the belt. the reverse the same procedure for install.
If it a multiple belt installation located the mechanical tension for each belt.
but by you asking i would have it professionally done
