Hi, on the serpentine belt, the tensioner is the round part that looks like a pulley but is round and smooth has no groves on it. It just rests against the belt to remove the slack and to keep the belt tight as it wears. It will or should be down lower then the alternator. It will have a bolt through it so when you put a wrench on it it will move either way to relieve the tension on the belt to remove it. This will be very easy for you to do. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. I will check in on you as I keep all files on people that I help, and you can also keep me posted by my user name below.

How to change an alternator belt on a 1998 montero

Please confirm to me but I believe the alternator is driven with the serpintine belt. If this is the case there is an idler/tension pulley that would need to be first loosened (I believe it is a 14MM) then at the top of the bracket where this pulley is mounted there is a bolt that you rotate to either loosen or tighten the belt (by turning this bolt you either raise or lower the pulley.
I hope this may have helped,

I need to replace the aleternator belt on a Mitsubishi Montero LS 1990, is there a ''how to'' somwhere?

Iam afraid there is no how to in this case.Usually it is very simple.Two bolt holds the alternator,you need to loose both.Then push the alternator against the engine ,it will loose the belt.Replace the belt,no matter which position you going to put it in ,it is not important on the alternator belt.Make sure that belt has a good tension .
