Serpentine belts have an automatic tensioner, which cannot be adjusted. But your problem sounds like poor alternator performance, have it checked, at your local parts store most do it for free.
If it is a drive belt and not a serpentine belt is has no tensioner. You manually adjust the tension by normally adjusting tension by moving the alternator. Loosen to bolts holding the alternator in place and then adjust the tension. Tighten the bolts when the tension is right. If it is serpentine belt if you follow the belt around the the engine you will see the tensioner.
There are a few different ways to adjust the drive belt or V-belt tension in a vehicle. The most popular used nowadays is a serpentine belt that connects to and activates every pulley in the engine. These serpentine belts require no tension adjustment as they incorporate an automatic belt tensioner. This type of tensioner has an internal pre-set spring and applies the correct amount of tension to the belt. Some older vehicles and some imports may use a combination of V-belts and serpentine belts in offset pulleys still controlled by the crankshaft pulley. Most often, there are belt tensioners on these vehicles that allow proper tension to be adjusted.
The alternator is usally on an adjustable slide mounted to the engine. If you adjust the alternator on that slide to take the tension off the belt you should be good to go to put the new belt on. The routing diagram for routing the serpentine belt should be on a placard mounted under the hood on the frame. It should also be in your user's/maintenance manual. Make sure to adjust the alternator properly on its slide mount so that there is sufficient tension in the belt.
Yes, it is used to adjust the tension on the A/C compressor. Looking into the engine compartment from the passenger side it is to the left of the alternator. To adjust tension you need to loosen the bolt which holds the pulley and then adjust the bolt which is directly above the pulley. Once you have proper tension tighten the pulley bolt.
You dont adjust tension, it has belt tensioner that keeps the belt tight. either your belt or tension is bad, my recommendation is to replace the belt first, if the belt remains tight then you are good, if the belt doesnt then replace the tensioner, but beware, since the belt is a serpentine belt, you may experience problems with other systems such as electrical or cooling since they are tied to the belt drive. just monitor it, anc give the engine a bit of time to adjust to proper function. If you do not you will have failure in other areas. after this is fixed run the engine and monitor cooling system, and check alternator for proper operation, should be charging or output around 13-14v consistently. It all depends on how long the belt has been not tight.
