where is the tensioner for the serpentine belt on a 2004 ford ranger
he tensioner keeps the right amount of tension on the belt. If it is lose, the tensioner needs replaced.
a socket and a ratchet should do the trick if you can get your hand in there if not slide a pipe over the end of the ratchet you dont need to relaese it much for it to come off A 3/8" hinge handle should do the trick.
There is no adjustment, they use a belt tensioner to keep it tight. If it is loose it need to be replaced.
Release the pressure on the belt tensioner and belt should slide off pulleys
Serpentine belt replacement: (1)rotate the tensioner counterclockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 engines) or clockwise (3.0 engine) to lift it off the belt. Slip the belt off the pulleys. (2)Hold the tensioner in the released position. Install a new belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Be sure the ribs of the new belt engage the pulley ribs correctly. Release the tensioner. Manual adjustment is not required, it is done automatically by the tensioner. - Haynes Repair Manual Ford Ranger 1993 - 2005.
Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner.

Which ranger do you have because normally you take the air housing off then the serpentine belt then the mounting bolts on the alternator then remove the electric connection. If your trying to locate the alternator it's on the left side of the engine above the tensioner

The tensioner has an arrow on it, indicating the direction it needs to be pulled to allow the installation of the belt. The pulling is accomplished by putting a standard 3/8" ratchet driver into the square hole, and putting hand pressure on the handle of the wrench. The square hole is in the middle of the tensioner, and you just pop your wrench into it like its a socket. Use a long driver, so its easier to overcome the tensioner spring.
