Probably you cannot. From memory you will have to release the tension from the generator to replace the belt.

How do I lossen the belt tensioner on a 1991 toyota cressida I lossend the adjusting bolt and it didn't move

I can't give you the exact answer but there is generally at least two bolts and sometimes more to deal with when a belt is manually tensioned depending whether adjustment is by means of a movable jockey wheel or the alternator or power steering pump must be moved.

In the case of a movable jockey wheel or pulley, generally the centre retaining nut or bolt must also be loosened in order to allow it to be pulled along the track by the adjusting bolt. Sometimes a cap must be prised from the pulley to expose the bolt.

If the alternator or pas pump must be moved, usually the retaining bolts and sometimes the brace bolt must be slackened before adjustment is made.

C45 Cross Trainer drive belt replacement

Cost = £25 for drive belt + any tools needed (saving of £150 - £200).
Tools = Long shafted crosshead screwdriver, 3 & 4 & 6mm hex keys, metric spanners, ratchet tie-down luggage straps (2), wire twists.
Time = 3-4 hours.
Difficulty = Moderate.
The 15mm grooved belt is tensioned by a spring loaded jockey pulley. Dealing with this is the crux. Handing is relative to front view of the machine. Beware of magnetic field near brake when running under load - pace-makers, watches etc.
1. Disconnect dc supply and remove plug. Clear access is needed to both sides, with most of the work done from RHS.
2. Disconnect both drive arms from the drive discs using hex key. Pull front ends outwards to clear the trunnions. Push both arms back out of the way. (Drive discs cannot be removed without special tools).
3. Remove RHS cover using crosshead driver to undo screws in deep slots round edge.
4. Remove dc socket from LHS cover (hex nut) before removing LHS cover.
5. Working from RHS, note layout of electromagnet brake unit. Cut out old belt. Remove jockey spring.
6. Plates on either side clamp the magnet core. Remove the RHS plate only (which also carries the jockey pulley crank). Remove hex nut on end of brake pulley shaft. Use spanner and hex key to remove 4 long bolts one at a time and partially reinsert each from LHS - this prevents the short aluminium spacers on LHS from falling out. Don't lose the long spacers or the crank mounting bell washer from RHS. Remove 2 short screws from lower edge of plate using hex key. Each has a plain and a spring washer. Do not slacken the corresponding 2 screws on LHS, since that risks disturbing the distance between the driving and brake axes.
7. Remove old belt debris and clean.
8. Pass new belt over RHS drive disc. Fit centrally into grooves on topside of disc only, leaving enough slack to fit centrally round the small brake pulley.
9. Grease mounting washer and replace crank with jockey pulley hanging underneath belt. Refit RHS plate, starting with the spindle hex nut. Take care that each bolt passes through both long and short aluminium spacers. (There seems no reason to remove and reinsert the bolts from RHS - this only increases the chance of dislodging the small spacers). If a spacer does move, use a wire twist to hold in place temporarily while inserting bolt. Ensure that all bolts and screws are fully tightened before step 10.
10. Refit jockey spring, ensuring that the pulley pushes against belt's lower surface. Anchor ratchet tie-down to back foot of machine, wrap round crank arm, then pull back spring as far as possible. Use 2 tie-downs for safety and maximum tension.
11. Slowly rotate RHS drive disc anticlockwise while keeping belt central on both pulleys. Use a screwdriver blade to prevent the belt jumping the grooves on the brake pulley and slipping off the jockey pulley. Once the belt is grooved, keep turning to check that it runs true - no grooves should be visible on the brake pulley. Use side pressure while turning to re-position. Mind your fingers.
12. Release tie-downs very carefully, since the spring reacts with a bang. Temporarily attach drive arms and dc supply. Test. When satisfied that all is OK and belt runs true under load, detach drive arms, replace LHS cover, dc socket, RHS cover, drive arms, and plug in dc supply.

How do i remove the drive belt on a 2006 Toyota Solara?

Serpentine belt replacement is not complicated and requires only one tool. Find the tension pulley located at the bottom of the motor. This pulley is attached to a very strong spring and holds the belt tight against the pulleys through its serpentine route around the engine. Use a socket wrench with a matching socket the same size as the hex head bolt in the center of the tension pulley. Attach the socket and set the direction to tighten the same direction the spring action allows the pulley to move. Turn the wrench handle, the pulley moves and the tension on the belt slackens. Take the belt off the pulley and let it hang. 
To install the new belt Once the belt is around the pulleys allow it to hang freely at the bottom of the engine. Again, use the socket wrench to turn the tension pulley far enough so the belt can be wrapped around the pulley. Once the belt is around the tension pulley, release the socket wrench and allow the tension pulley to take up the slack. 
Good Luck!!

I need a manual for my Husqvarna CRT 53. My machine is turning all the time, after not turning at all.

The drive system is pretty simple on this machine, you have a v belt from the engine pulley, to a pulley on the gearbox, this belt is slack during non use, when the drive bail arm is pulled in for drive, the cable pulls a jockey pulley under the bottom of the belt, thus shortening it, this increases the tention and the drive is engaged, to stop the drive comeing in prematurly, slacken the drive cable under the facia plate, there is a single screw and clamp, once the screw is loosened, pull the outer up toward the handle, then try again, only move the cable a bit at a time until you get the correct drive, and a neutral position.

Drive belt snapped how to replace

Just remove the fan belt cover at the back, slacken the large bolt below the motor and rotate the motor and install the belt. Then you need to tighten the belt. Push the jockey wheel harder against the belt, then retighten the bolt.

I hope this helps.

Belt Replacement

Sorry couldn't find a picture online, you could ask these guys; Usually these motors are mounted with a screw device somewhere on the side away from the hinge which can tension or slacken the belt. sometimes the whole motor is mounted on a sled, which can be moved to slacken the belt, probably by undoing 1 or two screws in the sled that slide in a track. if you have no luck with that then see if there is a small grub screw in the side of the pulley on the motor, if so you should be able to slide the pulley off to change a belt. Hope this helps :)
