    Where is the tension pulley?

    The belt tensioner is directly under the alternator, which is at the top rear of the engine (passenger side). The pulley is attached to the tensioner as an assembly. A 3/8" ratchet will fit into a square hole in it. Turn to the left to relieve the tension, remove belt. It has one bolt in the center to remove from engine.

    Fix 2002 buick rendezvous side view mirror

    it sounds like the mounting bolts embedded in the mirros housing were pulled out somewhat.You will not know untill the mirror is removed. If the studs that hold this mirror housing to the door are pulled out take a heat gun to get the studs warm and twist them back in flush. them apply JB Weld to the studs lowest part to the mirror housing so they stay secured

    Installing a serpentine belt on a 2002 buick rendezvous

    There is an idler pulley just below the alternator in the back of the engine, passenger side. Loosen by using a socket wrench to loosen the central bolt (there are two, one upper and one lower, you want the UPPER bolt). You don't need to remove, just loosen to relieve tension on the belt. The diagram for the belt is actually on a little plastic plaque on the front left of the engine.

    2002 Buick Rendezvous alternator removal

    To get the alternator out, I had to move that large electical fuse / relay box out of the way,and remove washer bottle and battery. then use a 3/8" drive ratchet to move the tensioner forward to get the belt off. I used a small mirrow to get a view of the back bolts on the alternator and removed them.[ I used meteric # 15 open end & closed end combo wench. Keep turning the back bolts until the alternator become loose.]
