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.

How do you let tension off a t belt on a 99 model rav 4 3sge engine?

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.

What is the squealing noise coming from the main belt-engine area in a '99 Cavalier that gets louder as the car accelerates?

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
