Yes, you have to remove the tensioner to install the elbow. There is another fitting that goes in the other side of the tensioner that you may also need to replace as they tend to get damaged when removing the tensioner. I would replace both at the same time as they are quite inexpensive. Once you have it all back together make sure you recheck the coolant level and check for any leaks once the engine is fully warmed up. It's also a good time to replace the serpentine belt if needed as you'll already have it off at this point...also check all the belt pulleys to make sure they are good. Good luck and hope this helps!

How to change a 2000 ford explorer bypass hose?


You have to remove the tensioner assembly, not just the tensioner pulley, but the whole assembly, in order to access the plastic bypass hose.
Be very careful, as these pipes get old, the plastic becomes brittle, and possibly the flange end will break off and remain in the block when you remove the pipe, check the block opening carefully to remove all of the remaining flange.
Also, be very careful when removing the lover pipe nipple into the engine block, if you try to pry the tensioner assembly off the block, you will probably snap off the machined nipple that locates into the block, Ask me how I know!!! Good Luck, it can be done but you need to move carefully and deliberately. (by the way, a rebuilt tensioner assembly costs about $80 US, the pipe is about $6. New tensioner assembly comes with the pipe)

Need to replace ignition cylinder on 2000 Impala


Pop off the black ring around ignition lock small screwdriver willl do. Remove dashboard plastic to expose 2 bolts holding ignition assy. Can be tedious. IF you can turn the key turn it to Start. In the plastic housing there's a 1/4 by 3/8 hole. push in a screwdriver which will push in a button on ignition cylinder and allow you to slide it out. The hole is located at 4 o'clock if we agree that the 2 wiring harness plugs are at 6 o clock and its 1 and 1/4 inches below the face of ignition cylinder. If you dont feel that the screwdriver is pushing in that "button" rotate your key until it does. Then just slide the cylinder out.
