Remove the drivers side wheel. Remove the inner cover. Taking an Allen wrench and tighten the tension roller against the belt.
It's on the center of the idler pulley
This is a procedure that requires specialized equipment. Take it to a dealer and have it done correctly. This is not a DIY job.
I am 99% positive that your Malibu does not have a cam belt, but instead has a cam chain. Look in your owner's manual or call your local Chevy dealer to be 100% sure.
What about this tensioner? How do you remove it, or how do you releave the tension so you can replace the belt?
Yes, there are bleeder valves for cooling systems for 99 Malibu.
Loosen the bolts on the pump to allow the belt to lose tension. Remove the belt, then put on the new belt. Pull the pump to tighten the belt snug but not over tight while tightening the bolts.
On top of the engine there is a serpentine belt (5 grooves). The tension is autmatically set by the belt tensioner. It is an arm with a pulley on the end of it. The other end has a 3/8 inch connector for a ratchet. Put a ratchet on the end of it and pull it towards you. This should relieve the tension enough to take the belt off the pulleys.
To check the fan relays on the 99 Malibu, you can swap the relay between the AC blower and the fan.

Loosen the 99 Malibu power steering hoses and allow the fluid to drain into a bucket. Remove the drive belt. Unbolt the pump and remove. The pump pulley needs a puller to be removed. Remove the pulley, and put it on the new ;ump. Reverse the procedure to finish the installation.
Hello!! Why would you release the tension of your timing belt? Is it because you hear noises? NB. If noises are heard after changing a timing belt or tightening of a timing belt, the reason for this noise is that your Idler and tensioner bearing should have been change at the same time of changing belt. A timing Kit if purchased would include both bearings and belt. Good luck.
99 Honda passport has a timing belt.
Check the tensioner and make sure it has the correct tension on the serpentine belt. Even with the proper tension, sometimes the belt will still squeal if it is older, after several years of use, especially if you live in a very hot climate, the belt can "glaze" and become slick. Hope it helps...JC
