To release the 1990 Cavalier serpentine tension, use a socket and a ratchet. Put the socket on the bolt heat in the middle of the pulley wheel, and pull to one side, and the belt will be loosened to be able to be removed.

If it's working correctly, the tension is OK. If it's slipping, either it's loose, or needs to be replaced, or both. Is it all shiny looking and cracked where it meets the pulleys? Replace it now. It's better than having it break when you are out in the middle of nowhere.

Could be a couple causes for this: * the tensioner may need replacing - not keeping enough tension on the "S" belt * worn (stretched) serp belt - replace ~ every 50 or 60k miles.

there's a spring loaded tension-er on the right side of the engine.. look at your belt diagram on your engine and you'll see the belt tension-er looking like it's pointing to the northeast of the little diagram.. the easiest way to relieve the pressure is get a crowbar, pull up on the tension-er until it relieves the pressure. I'm actually putting a new belt on my 91' 3.1 Corsica

My suburban has a automatic tensioner therefore I need to do is take the tension off with a long wrench and slide the belt from underneath it and replace it with the new one. The tensioner is right by the water pump. If not then you will need to loosen the alternator bolt and drop the alternator to loosen the tension. Trust me manuals can be your best friend!!
