must removed the shield that covers the the fan in front. once that's removed you could get a better clear area to get to the alternator.

Where is the belt tensioner located on a 1997 GMC Safari AWD van?

Look under the alternator , as your standing , facing the front of the engine , to your left follow the belt down . It has a 3/8 square in it so you can use a ratchet to take the tension off the belt for removal. Easy to replace attached by one bolt to the engine and is sold as a unit (arm , sprng assembly and roller) for around $20.00. Just alot of stuff to reach through to get to it.

Convet 2 wheel drive to AWD1998 Safari?

That is more hassle then whats its worth. the whole front suspension is totaly diffrent then the AWD. plus the rest of the AWD equipment that is needed to make it work. if you want AWD find one that has a bad motor and replace it with the one you have as long as you don't have a lot of mileage on that motor. or rebuild the motor and there you have an AWD van. it would be cheaper than trying and less painful
