Hey Chris==Pull up on the belt and you can see how the idler puller must move to release tension on the belt. The schematic for the belt should be on the fan shroud. If it isn't, draw a schematic before removing the old belt. Don't rely on memory. Goodluck Joe

A further suggestion. The belt tensioner uses a 1/2" breaker bar to de-tension the serpentine belt. I still had problems releasing the tension, so I used an 18" long, 1" (id) black iron pipe as an extension for my breaker bar. It makes a world of difference and one person can then de-tension the belt and remove or reinstall the belt over the alternator pulley.

How do you relieve the tension on serpentine belt in a 1990 Corsica 3.1 Lt?

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


How do you pully releaves the tension on a 2001 Pontiac sunfire to put on the belt?

Give the belt a couple of quick, short tugs to relieve the tension. The belt is most likely jammed. Then if it releases, pull it out slowly. If you pull the belt out too fast, it will often lock up. My mistake, I thought seat belt. The pulley that doesn't connect to anything like the crank or alternator is the tension pulley. It is spring loaded. Some have a place for a ratchet to go or you pry against the housing or the pulley itself as long as you don't pinch the belt. Relieve the tension and slip the belt off of another pulley and release the tension.
