For each accessory there will be a locking bolt and a pivot bolt or nut. After they are loosened move the component as needed to tighten or loosen the belt. Many accessories have a square hole designed to accept a 1/2 inch square drive breaker bar. the bar can be used to lever the accessory and tighten the drivebelt ( fan belt ) Others have a cast lug, use an wrench for the same effect, but careful of those knuckles!

The alternator is the adjustment point. Loosen the bolts holding the alternator to the engine and slide the alternator in towards the engine. This will allow you to remove the fan belt. However, if you also have power steering, the power steering belt may have to be removed before the alternator belt can be completely removed. Loosen the bolts holding the power steering pump assembly to the engine and slide the pump towards the engine to remove both belts.

The belt tensioner for the AC/Alternator belt is beneath the alternator. Facing the engine from bumper you can see the ac/alternator belt tensioner on the left side and beneath the alternator. Losen that bolt with size 12 socket. Next, loosen the tensioner bolt until the belt loosens. Now, with the Power Steering Belt you can loosen it by locating the belt tensioner usually found inside of the power steering belt on the power steering pump. Loosen both bolts and if needed pry UP the power steering belt tensioner and the belt should loosen. Repeat until belt comes off. Installation is the reversal of removal. NOTE: You may have to pry down the power steering pump tensioner to tighten the belt.

On the four cylinder engine, all accessories are run with two belts, one for the power steering pump, the other drives the alternator and a/c compressor, etc. Loosen the bolts holding the power steering pump first. Please note the bolts that mount it are on the driver side of the engine, while the bolts that tension it, face the front of the car. Loosen (no need to remove) the tension bolt, remove the power steering belt. Loosen the bolts on the alternator, loosen the tension bolt on the alternator, push the alternator toward the engine and the belt is now free.
