Remove the serpentine belt and remove the alternator. The belt tensioner bolts are under the alternator.

The 95 Cavalier with the 2.2L engine does not use a belt, instead it has a roller chain/tensioner setup which should last the life of the engine.

Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley on your 2000 VW. The serpentine belt will become loose when the tensioner pulley is loose. Remove the old serpentine belt and put the new serpentine belt on. Tighten the new serpentine belt with the tensioner pulley.


there is no repair for a belt tensioner. just buy a new tensioner. remove old belt, remove old tensioner, it is held on with one bolt. install new tensioner. install new belt


Remove the belt, Remove one bolt out of the fulcrum part of the tensioner and remove the tensioner; reverse the precedure.


The job is not too hard. With the right tools, just remove the belt, and unbolt the tensioner, and replace. Then with your ratchet i( it fits in the square slot ) slack the tensioner and slip the new belt on. You have to slack the tensioner to take off the belt also.


Should be a square hole either 3/8" or 1/2" place a breaker bar in this hole and push or pull to relieve tension on belt tensioner to remove belt

You dont! The belt is self adjusting with the belt tensioner. Check the tensioner for failure or damage if your belt is loose good luck


Open the hood and look. If it has a serpentine belt there is a tensioner.


Loosen the tensioner pulley. The tensioner pulley will slide to the right. This will loosen the alternator belt. So it can be removed.
