there is an adjustment tab or hook under neath and you just about have to lay flat on your back pull up the tension and have someone else tighten the bolts from above.
belt tensionTo adjust the belt tension loosen the three bolts( two of them have adjusting slides) and take a pry bar and insert between the bracket and pump to tighten. bob leverette ashford, al.bull crap their is none on the power steering pump their is just a tention pulley on the opposite side of the engine but it auto tightens
Power steering/Drive belt Adjustment To adjust P/S belt tension, loosen tension pulley bolts and turn tension pulley using hexagon wrench. Adjust belt tension to specification described in CHECK. Then tighten tension pulley bolts to specified torque. Tightening torque P/S belt tension pulley bolt (a): 25 Nm (2.5 kgf-m, 18.5 ft. lbs.)
on the power steering pump bracket on the side closest to the battery look for a 1/2" square hole (incidently use this with a 1/2'" drive socket wrench to leverage belt tension after you put on the new belt when you get there) just below this square hole is the tension bolt for the power steering belt adjustment
If you're referring to the 4.0 I-6, there is an idler pulley located directly under the air conditioning compressor pulley. However, tension is adjusted through the power steering pump. You will have to loosen the two bolts behind the power steering pump, two or three bolts which attach to the power steering bracket, as well as the one under the front of the pulley. There is also another bolt under the driver's side of the power steering pump. This one actually controls the belt tension.
It depends if you want to adjust the belt that does the a/c and power steering, or the one to the alternator. The power steering goes this way. First loosen the hex screw running through the power steering pump bracket. Then loosen the bracket hex screw that attaches to the belt tensioner bolt under the power steering pump. Then, tighten the tensioner hex screw that runs through the tensioner bracket. After you finish the adjustment, tighten all hex screws. If you adjust the belt for the alternator. You must loosen the alternator bracket hex screws on both the top and botom of the alternator. This requires going under the vehicle. Then, loosen the tensioner bracket hex screw and adjust the tensioner hex screw that runs through that. When you get the propper tension, tighten all screws and you are done.
I just replaced the power steering belt and alternator belt of my 1998 Mazda Protege ES and it took me quite many hours to figure it out since there is hardly sufficient space to see and reach to all the bolts. For power steering belt, from top of the engine compartment, use a 14 mm ratchet socket turning couter clockwise of the tension screw located underneath power steering pump to release the belt tension. Then, either use a 14 mm boxed wrench to loosen the pivot screw bolt or rotate the power steering pulley to align the pulley openings to the pivot screw bolt so that one can fit the 14 mm ratchet socket through the opening to loosen the pivot screw bolt. Next, one needs to remove the right front wheel, support the car with jack stand. Also remove the front wheel well plastic cover to allow reach to the tension lock bolt that holds the power steering pump tension adjustment piece. Use a 14 mm boxed wrench, turning couter clockwise to loosen it. If the power steering pump drops downward and the belt is loose, remove the belt. If not, one can use a piece of wood, holding against the power steering pump body and hit with a hammer to force the power steering pump go downward and the belt should be loose enough to be removed. To install the belt, just reverse the steps. Place the new belt over the power steering pulley, A/C compressor pulley if so equiped, and crank shaft pulley. Use a piece of wood to push the power steering pump upwards as far as one can, at the mean time, tighten the tension lock bolt with a 14 mm boxed wrench from the wheel well opening. Then, from top of the engine compartment, turn the tension adjustment screw clockwise to adjust the belt tension. Tighten the pivot screw bolt at last. Start the engine for a few minutes, check and belt tension, adjust if necessary. Hope this helps and good luck.
