if all you want to do is change the tensioner pulley, do the following: with a 15mm wrencon on the bolt in the centre of the tensioner pulley, pull it toward the front of the car to relaese the rension holding the tension ooff with the wrench, remove the belt turn the same bolt counter clock wise to unscrew it and you can take the pulley off A new pulley can be put on, the bolt put back in and the belt repalced; you take the tension off the tensioner by again pulling it forward with the wrench If you want to change the entire tensioner assembly: remove the belt take off the alternator bolts (after you disconnect the battery) and move the alternator out of the way this will expose the tensioner assemebly and you can simply take off the nut with a 15mm open end wrench pull out the old tensioner, put the new on one, put the nut back on, re-install the alternator and putthe belt back on If you are reasonably handy, the whole procedure might take an hour

I used a breaker bar for the tension pulley to relieve the tension to remove the belt, I think there are three bolts that hold the tension pulley on, just remove them and reverse the procedure to install. Follow the diagram that is either on the inside of the hood or on the radiator cover on how to thread the belt back on the pulleys.

WHAT PULLEY DO I loosen to get single drive belt on?

If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley. Pry the idler back and remove the belt.If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.

How do you replace the tensioner assembly on a 1996 Plymouth voyager mini van?

The pulley can easily be removed from the tensioner by loosening the bolt in the center. (the same one you use to loosen the tension to put the belt on. put a socket wrench on the bolt (mine is 15mm) and loosen. once the bolt is removed the pulley will come right off. tighten the bolt with the new pulley in place until the bolt pulls against the spring loaded tensioner. turning the bolt tighter will also loosen the tension to replace the belt. I found that threading the belt in place over the tensioner pulley first and then releasing the tension while I slide the belt onto the alternator pulley worked better because the wrench was in the way if I try to put the belt on the tension pulley last. good luck getting it loose enough to get the belt on. two people would make the job a lot easier.

Loosen 13mm nut that secures tension pulley. Then loosen 13mm nut/bolt just above tensioner assembly facing upwards, to remove tension from belt. Then finally remove the three 10mm bolts holding tensioner assembly to engine block. Install in reverse order.
