If you are refering to the cam belt tensioner, they are spring loaded and self adjusting. The V6 tensioner can lose tension and become very noisy, if this is the case, replace the belt and tensioner. If, however, you have an ealier model, you will have up to 3 manual tensioners. Tightening the bolts on these loosens then tentioner (moves the wheel down) IMPORTANT: Don't forget to tighten the lock nuts when you're done adjusting!! :)
