In my experiences with tensioners, I've never 'reloaded' one or heard of it being done (doesn't mean it couldn't happen). For $15-$20 each time, I've replaced many by myself, with a new part from NAPA, Advance, Auto Zone, etc.

How do you replace the serpentine belt tensioner on a 1990 Buick Park Avenue with AC?

First, you make sure you have a diagram of the path of the belt! You can get it from a book, the inside of the hood or make one yourself. Then remove the belt. The nut you used to relieve the tension to remove the belt should remove the tensioner, itself. NOTICE! Some auto parts stores have TWO very similar tensioner pulleys! On my first try the cupped washer on the tensioner bolt rubbed against the radial support ribs on the pulley itself destroying not only the pulley but the belt, also! Be SURE that the new pulley turns freely when the bolt is fully tightened!

Does the Hyundai excel have a cambelt or cam chain?

My daughter has an X2 1993 and it has a cam belt. All models from 1990 will have a cam belt but I'm not sure about the earlier X1 series prior to 1990. If you are replacing the belt, make sure you buy a cam belt kit with the new tensioner pulley assembly. I found this out the hard way when I pulled my daughters car apart to replace the belt. The pulley bearing was stuffed and also the tensioner spring gets weak over time.

How do you loosen a tensioner that seems to be stuck in a 1990 Mazda B2200?

I will assume you are regarding the pulley for the power steering? If so to loosen it use a socket on the top of the pulley it should have a flat head style appearance.Loosen it clockwise and then the big nut on front of the pulley is a 7/8 inch combination wrench loosen it and the pulley should slide down to make the PS belt loose.This pulley is kind of weird but,by loosening the top bolt (metric) the bolt will come up as you take the tension off.Then YOU defenitely have to loosen the nut on the front of the pulley itself which alloys the pulley to move up or down.To adjust back with new belt on run the top bolt which is behind the pulley with the flat head cut in it run it down tight then tighten the nut on front of the pulley this locks the pulley in place so it will not move.Hope this helps.If this question is in reference to the tensioner for the timing belt resubmit your question.

Near the top of the belt there is a belt tensioner; it has a pulley attached to it. It is spring loaded and there is a provision to attach a breaker bar to force back the spring; once you do, it is easy to remove the serpentine belt.

Put a socket and ratchet on the tensioner belt pulley. Pull to the side, releasing the belt tension. Remove the belt and put the new one on, a helper will make this easier. Take the ratchet off to re-tension the belt.
