Best Answer

If you have a serpentine belt (this belt is flat on one side and has 6 little "v's" on the other side about 1 1/4" wide) then there should be an "Idler" pulley that is internally spring loaded that puts the required tension on the belt, thus there is no "adjustment". But if this pulley is defective it must be replaced.

If yours has a single big "V" belt (about 1/2" wide) then the "Adjustment" usually consists of loosening the alternator and "biasing" it to tighten the belt then securing it again.

Okay, it took me about 10 minutes but I found it. I have a 1994 Buick Regal & my oil filter is on the back passenger side of the engine, about 3/4 of the way down, below the power steering box. I hope that helps! On my 1991 Buick Regal the oil filter is located under the power steering pump which you access through the passenger wheel well to remove/add the filter.
