Best Answer

It is really simple. First you remove the belt by using the correct tool whether it is a certain sized wrench or a socket wrench. Then you unbolt the tensioner from the engine. There is usually only one bolt that holds the tensioner to the engine. Instalation is the reverse of removal.
