Automatic belt tensioners do not require adjustment as they are spring loaded. They get replaced.

Your Explorer has a serpentine belt tensioner which keeps the proper tension on the serpentine belt unless the tensioner has failed.

They have automatic tensioners. If the belt needs adjustment, either you have a bad tensioner or a worn belt.

you have to call any GM dealership and ask for the parts department and they will give you one for about $35-50.

Put the belt tensioner tool on the tensioner pulley, and push away from you. Then you can slide the belt off. You either need to cut it or unbolt the engine from its mount and slip it out.

Using a 14 mm wrench, loosen the bolt in the center of the tensioner pulley, then tighten the tensioner bolt with the same wrench. Then re-tighten the bolt in the center of the tensioner pulley when the belt is tightened to your liking.

If you ask a question like that, on a forum like this. Go back to world of warcraft, take it to a mechanic, and have your parents pay for it.;

There is a Tensioner Pulley that you have adjust in order to tighten the belt. There is another hex bolt that can be screwed in or out depending on how you want to tighten or losen the belts. Adjust it until prefered tension is reached.

look on passenger side, front fender. Should see a small red box, flip it open.

I have used a socket with a ratchet handle. The ratchet will allow you to get more travel to move the pulley and get the belt off.

there are two belts, one for the accessories; alternator, power steering pump, AC..., then there is one expressly for the supercharger
