Loosen the top two bolts on the Power Steering pump. then loosen the bolt in the center of the idler pulley (below power steering pump) looking at the engine from the front of car, locate the tensioning bolt at the lower left side of the power steering pump bracket.Turn this bolt clockwise to tighten belt until you get 1/4 to 1/2 inch deflection when belt is pushed in between pulleys. Tighten all bolts that you loosened.
