Tensioner pulley is located on passenger side head, just behind the fan shroud. There is a pivoting catch that will hold the tensioner in the "loose" position so the belt can be removed or installed.

Stand on ladder or on the passenger side tire and pull up on the belt, Reach down and press the keeper in while holding tension on the belt. Release tension down on to the keeper. When belt is reinstalled, pull up on the belt to release tension from the keeper and release. The keeper will pop back into normal position and the tensioner will tighten against the belt.

Alternator belt diagram for isuzu bighorn

All above is Bull Sxxxt. Isuzu bighorn Alternator belt only drives water pump (fan) and alternator. Size of belt is 17x1000 and its a tight fit onto pulleys so it makes you think its wrong belt, but trust me its not. As if you get 17x1025 or 17x1050 belt you wont get it tight correctly due to not enough adustment on alternator. To change/adjust the belt very simple. Loosen 3 bolts (14mm socket) on power steering pump (its 2 belts that diving power steering and air con), loosen tensioner on p/s pump. Remove those 2 belt - to get access to alternator belt adjustment bolts. There are 2 bolts you will need to loosen One at the bottom of alternator (14mm socket and 25mm extension bar to get it easier) another one is 12mm on tensioner rail. Than adjust tension by screwing 12mm long bolt that mounted across the tensioner rail until you get tension correct. Correct tension is about 68kg. But i do it just to get it nicely tight without too much of sag. REMEMBER DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the belt as you will crush berings on water pump or alternator.

I'm changing out a bad alternator on a 2004 mustang ,where is the belt tensioner locateed?

usually right under the alternator sometimes the alternator is the belt tensioner, if so then just loosen the alternator bolts and in should move inwards a little allowing you to get the belt off, if thats the case then make sure you have a pry bar of some sort to adjust the new alternator so the belt will be tight

How do you loosen belt to change alternator.

You need a belt tensioner tool, it's a long flat bar with a 3/8" square drive on the end. Most auto parts stores will have one to borrow.

Insert the tool into the belt tensioner and rotate this will loosen the belt for removal.

Make sure you disconnect the + battery cable before you start working on the alternator.

I can't get my serpentine belt back on after changing my alternator. What do I do now?

Hi Friend:

#1) On your vehicle you have a Serpitine Belt tensioner ,your Serpitine Belt runs on this also;

#2) Locate your Belt Tensioner its (Aluminum) and is Spring Loaded to kep your Belt at the Proper Tension.

#3) On the front side of the Tensioner there is a Bolt Head, Get a Breaker Bar ,Correct size Socket or(Ratchet and Socket)

#4) With the tool on the bolt head the Tensioner will move by applying pressure to the Tension.It will only move 1-Way when applying Pressure with Your Tool.

#5) By Moving the Tensioner you will be getting enough Slack that you Can Put the Belt Back on.

#6) You should have a Belt Routing Diagram on your Cooling Fan Shruod or the Frame in Front of it.

#7) Just take a Good look at how the Belt HAS to Be Routed it will only work 1-Way.

#8) So Follow the Diagram for Routing and you should have no Problems. Don't Forget it Will not Go on Correctly until you Apply perssure to your Belt Tensioner.

Please let me Know how well i have Assited you.By voting .And a Testamony would be Appreciated.

Thanks for Using FIXYA from; d_hubbs

How to releived the tension on the belts when removing the the alternator on A 1995 jeep wrangler

Serpentine Belt:

If there is a tensioner with a spring, then put a 1/2" breaker bar on it and rotate the tensioner to relieve tension.

Conventional V-Belt:

Loosen the nut and bolts for the alternator to swing it in a way that relieves tension on the belt.

May have to relieve tension on other belts in similar way to change the belt in question.
