You'll find an idler/tensioner pulley, which rides on an adjustable arm. First you have to loosen the locknut(14mm?) of the pulley , then tighten/loosen the adjuster rod (8mm?) to adjust the belt tension. Afterwards, tighten the locknut.

How do you tighten belt onto a new alternator.?

If it is a serpentine belt, the tension is automatically adjusted by the tension idler. If the belt is loose then the tensioner needs replacing. If it is a normal drive belt, then the alternator is mounted on a slotted bracket that allows you to adjust the position of the alternator. You can loosen the bolts and adjust the tension on the belt.

If it is a drive belt and not a serpentine belt is has no tensioner. You manually adjust the tension by normally adjusting tension by moving the alternator. Loosen to bolts holding the alternator in place and then adjust the tension. Tighten the bolts when the tension is right. If it is serpentine belt if you follow the belt around the the engine you will see the tensioner.

Is their a tesioner pulley on a 1994 geo prism?

Yes, it is used to adjust the tension on the A/C compressor. Looking into the engine compartment from the passenger side it is to the left of the alternator. To adjust tension you need to loosen the bolt which holds the pulley and then adjust the bolt which is directly above the pulley. Once you have proper tension tighten the pulley bolt.

Is there an alternator belt adjuster on a 1994 Geo Prism 1.8?

If the alternator is driven by a drive belt, the answer is yes. You adjust the tension by loosing the bolts on the alternator mounting brackets and sliding the alternator until the proper tension, (around 1/4" deflection at mid point of the belt) is achieved. If however it has a Serpentine Belt driving the alternator, then there is no adjustment. Tension is held by the idler pulley. If it is loose then the belt is worn out, the idler tensioner is defective, or both.

How do you remove serpentine belt on a 95 ford escort?

The alternator is usally on an adjustable slide mounted to the engine. If you adjust the alternator on that slide to take the tension off the belt you should be good to go to put the new belt on. The routing diagram for routing the serpentine belt should be on a placard mounted under the hood on the frame. It should also be in your user's/maintenance manual. Make sure to adjust the alternator properly on its slide mount so that there is sufficient tension in the belt.

Remove the upper through bolt of the alternator, remove the bottom bolt of the alternator by unscrewing the nut. Slide the belt off pulley. Install the new alternator. Replace and tighten the bolts (You will need to use a torque wrench to tighten to the proper foot-pounds of torque. You can find the torque specs for you bolts by going to a Honda forum). Adjust the tension bolt until there is enough tension on the belt (if not enough tension you will hear the belt squeak when you stat your car).
