Question about Chevrolet Impala
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!
