What would you like to do?
Answer You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
Answer Hey, If you stand facing the passenger side of the vehicles' engine compartment you'll be facing the front of the engine. The tension pulley is to the low…er left. It is the only pulley that is mounted at the end of an "arm" as opposed to the rest of the pulleys that are mounted directly through their center holes. Hope this helps.
How do you loosen the tension pulley in order to change the serpentine belt on a 1992 Dynasty 33 liter engine?
There isn't a whole lot of extra room around the serpentine tensioner pulley so here is what I do... I put a box end wrench on the tensioner pulley nut. Then I push on the opp…osite end of the wrench with a long piece of wood... something thin enough to fit in the space you do have. I think I use a board that is about a half inch wide/thick. It helps if you have someone else remove the belt when you push on the wrench end. Gary from Princeton, MN

Answer there should be a tesion pully that needs to be loosened
2002 Hyundai Accent 1.5L-how do you change the Serpentine belt-how do you relieve the tensioner pulley?
Answer Well, I answered this one myself. The tensioner pulley is not a standard spring loaded tension, it is a manual tension. To loosen the tensioner pu…lley, you have to loosen the bolt that adjusts the pulley. *THIS IS NOT THE BOLT ON THE PULLEY ITSELF* If you lay on your back next to the front passenger side tire, head toward the rear of the car, look just past the side of the tire to the tensioner pulley itself (it sits just in front of the a/c compressor). Now imagine a line from the center of the pulley to about 2-2.5" behind(toward the engine) the pulley. Now look just below where that line would end, there should be a 12mm bolt head pointing downward sitting about .25" away from the bracket. This is what adjusts the pulley up and down. To lower the pulley(loosen), just use a 12mm wrench(you shouldn't need much force) and lefty-loosy, righty-tighty applies here (rotate counter-clockwise to loosen). It will take quite a few turns to lower it enough to pull the belt off, but that should be it. If not the pulley itself does come off if you have to, however, I do not recommend removing it if you don't have to (it's a b!tch to put back on with a belt there-I know from experience, trust me) it's just a 14mm socket and watch out for the parts to fall, ie: nut, large washer, pulley, large washer, spacer (have fun putting all of them back on with one hand and a belt there!). Ok, the belt comes off, the new belt goes on, with a little work, then tighten the tensioner back up, (righty-tighty, but be careful to not over tighten or you could strip the tension bolt). Now have fun putting that power steering pump belt back on if it's a new one!

How do you change the serpentine idler pulley serpentine tensioner and serpentine belt on a 1999 Nissan ALtima?

I am not sure what year vehicle you are talking about, but the tensioner should be located towards the top of the engine. You will need a serpentine belt tool kit in ord…er to replace it because I just replaced mine and it kind of a pain with the tool. Located near the RF tire, there is one large pulley to the left, the tensioner is the next pulley. the 3/8" will fit inside of the hole on the right side of the tensioner. Since the tensioner is under extreme pressure, be careful to 1. notice the configuration of the belt, 2. once the belt is off, try to lock the serp. tool, so that you have enough to push down on the tool to get new belt on. THE PULLEY HAS NO RIBS ON IT, if this might help you
The serpentine belt tensioner / pulley is on the front of the engine, and part of the belt 'routing'. Its job is to put tension on the belt as it drives the other devices li…ke the power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor. It is an aluminum casting that mounts with a single bolt to the engine. The pulley is attached to the arm. There are a few ways to move / pry the arm inwards, thus releasing the tension on the belt for removing/installing: grab on the pulley bolt (15mm?) with a wrench, or some later models have an opening for a 3/8th socket wrench to attach to directly without a socket. "Screaming"/whining that goes up and down with engine speed is a key symptom of a bearing wearing out - one of which of course is the tensioner pulley bearing. The serpentine belt tensioner / idler pulley is preset at the factory. If it is worn out, it will need to be replaced. NOTES: The belt is recommended to be replaced around 60,000 milesThere is a wear indicator (minimum vs maximum) on the face of the tensioner arm to let you definitively now when it's time to change the belt. To remove the tensioner and/or pulley: loosen the pulley bolt while it is still on the engine - it is easier this way than when the tensioner is off the engine loosen and remove the tensioner mounting bolt - try an 18mm socket first, it's the most common size. You can also just replace the pulley if that is the problem and save about $25. Price reference: Tensioner/pulley assembly - $40Pulley alone - $17-20 I just replaced the alternator on my wife's 2003 Windstar. It may not be applicable to your 97. I put the car up on ramps because the tensioner is the bottom-most pulley, nearest to the passenger compartment and almost directly below the power steering pump pulley. You need a 13mm wrench. I had a helper (my wife) working topside to put the belt over the alternator pulley, etc while I took the tension out of the tensioner pulley. I had to use the full allowable travel of the tensioner in order to get the belt on all of the pulleys properly. A younger stronger person could probably do it by himself by leaving the belt off of the balance wheel until last. There are likely spring clips that could be removed from the tensioner and then replaced as the final step, but there's not much room and my way dodged some skinned knuckles. Hope this helps. The "official" way to release the belt tension is to rotate the tensioner about 110 degrees counter clockwise, and press a flexible metal leaf on its side into a holding slot. Doing this does away with the need to pull hard on the belt. On at least some pre-2002 Windstar models, this was rather easily done with a long screwdriver or pry bar because the tensioner and the front idler pulley were one unit. But on the 2002, Ford decided they should be 2, and moved the tension into an impossible-to-access from above location. On the 2002, you can't even get a socket on the tensioner pully bolt to rotate it that way, because there's less than 1 inch of clearance between the bolt head and the vehicle frame. You'll have to decide if it's worth getting under the vehicle to save some pulling effort. Follow serpentine belt to pulley that is not connected to any engine component Follow the serpentine (drive) belt into the engine compartment. Now go down. See that pulley that is farthest away from the front grill? That is the tension adjustment pulley. Put a wrench on the center bolt (on the pulley) and apply counter clockwise force. This relieves the tension on the belt. I'd recommend a friend be present to place the belt while you are holding the pulley in the retracted position. Hope this helps. Remove the belt, and the tensioner pulley just unbolts. You will need a flat type wrench. Can be purchased at local auto store. If I remember correctly the bolt is a 15mm. All the way in the bottom back of the belt. It's easier to access it from under the car with a 13 mm wrench. If you're replacing it jack and support the car and remove the pulley (left hand threads) from under the vehicle. Then you can easily access the 3 mounting bolts. (The pulley has to come off to completely remove the bottom mounting bolt anyway) A long tensioner wrench does not relax the pulley enough to install a new belt from the top because of the AC, etc. hoses and the limited travel of the wrench. This is how I did it for my 3.8 engine, don't know about a 3.0 liter. pretty simple.. remove the serp belt by rotating the tensioner, then remove the bolt(s) the hold the tensioner inple. reverse to install. make a note of belt routing before you take it off, although there should be a sticker under the hood indicating belt routing. Addendum to above: Note that the location of the Belt Tensioner is noted incorrectly in the Ford factory service manuals. The BT is near the firewall. Loosen the bolt that holds the BT to the engine block, put a wrench on the BT pulley bolt and, using leverage, rotate the entire assembly upward to relieve the belt tension. If the assembly is too tight to move (mine was) thread a loop of 1" webbing around the BT arm, put a crowbar through the loop and heave. Make sure to avoid punching holes through things like your AC Compressor or manifold during this process. ...and I didn't find this simple at all Yes - the pulley can be replaced as a separate part. When you purchase the replacement part, it should be pretty logical on how to replace it on the tensioner arm - just one nut/bolt. One note: you may want to loosen the pulley nut/bolt while the tensioner is still mounted to the engine - AFTER the belt has been removed! tensioner won't lose tension unless they are bad or the belt is worn out. you can't adjust the tension.
What did unhook or break while you were under the hood ?
I used a breaker bar for the tension pulley to relieve the tension to remove the belt, I think there are three bolts that hold the tension pulley on, just remove them an…d reverse the procedure to install. Follow the diagram that is either on the inside of the hood or on the radiator cover on how to thread the belt back on the pulleys.
