The tensioner is spring loaded to hold the correct belt tension as designed by the factory and it is not adjustable, it is called an "AUTOMATIC BELT TENSIONER PULLEY". If there is a problem then either the tensioner is defective or the belt is incorrect or defective or another one of the pulleys it drives has a bad bearing in it,

Why cant I get the serpentine belt on to the tensioner pulley?


You either got the wrong parts or you need to move the tensioner just a little bit farther.

I cant get to and release the tension on the belt tension pulley



  • Yea it can be difficult to get to but if you remove the fan shroud and the engine cooling fan you will be able to get down to the tension pulley no problem. On this belt drive you will twist/pull the tension pulley clockwise.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I cant move the belt tensioner enough to get belt over alternator pully? Is there a trick?


Put the belt onto all groved pulleys first, then un-tension the tensioner/idler pulley and slide the belt onto it (the tensioner/idler pulley should be smooth with no lip for the belt to go over).

Cant get belt around alternator pulley tried to let tension off by tension pulley could not get pulley to move


Try the tension pulley in both directions. If it won't move you'll have to replace the tension(idler) pulley.

I cant get my belt on my mazda6 because my tentioner wont bolt back in not enough slack to put bolt to put in hole


Maza's auto-tensioner should have a to where you bolt the tensioner on (if it was removed) and it will have to where when you pull on the pulley potion toward the front it unlock into one of two positions...one of them will work to give enough slack to put the belt on and then it will click/flip back into the other position to provide tension. I hate the auto-tensioner but sometimes its handy.

Cant put belt on


  • Raise and suport the front of the vehicle
  • Under the car, use a socket set to remove the belt splash guard from the passenger side.
  • Find the belt tensioner. It's a small pulley (8) below the alternator (1) on a spring loaded pivot.
  • With the palm of your hand, push firmly upward on the tensioner pulley. If that does not work, get on the 15mm nut in the center of the pulley with a wrench for leverage. Acting like you're "tightening" this nut will provide the correct direction of movement to release belt tension.
  • The belt will loosen. While still pushing on the tensioner pulley, unloop the belt from the crank pulley (6) and/or A/C pulley (5). They're the two lower-most pullies.
  • Remove pressure from tensioner pulley
  • From above the engine or below, remove the belt.
  • Re-route new belt as shown in diagram below. Leave only the lower 2 pullies (A/C and crank) out of the loop.
  • Press the tensioner upwards again
  • While holding the tensioner, re-loop the new belt over the A/C and Crank pullies.
  • Remove pressure from tensioner pulley

  • Good luck and hope this helps.

    I cant find the tension? I get it on the pulleys,


    The tension release pulley, located just below and in front of alternator, has a 1-2 slot in the center of pulley. Insert the 1-2 inch breaker bar in middle of tension pulley and pull up, tension will be released. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer, thanks.
