The belt tensioner on a 91 Corsica 2.2L with an aftermarket AC is replaced by loosening the retaining bolt and pushing the tensioner to the side. The belt can then be taken off, the tensioner removed, and a new one bolted into position.

You don't. they are not adjustable. Its a spring tension on it, therefore you would have to replace the tensioner which only takes one bolt to get the tensioner off. Same thing to re-install the new one!

How do you fix the temperature gauge on a 1991 V6 Chevy Corsica?

My Corsica's temp gauge went out, and to replace the OEM gauge would have required buying the whole instrument panel. We bought an aftermarket gauge and mounted it under the dash. It cost much less, and hey, it's not a show car so I don't mind that it's not 'perfect'. Just find the temp sensor on the engine (driver's side of car on back side of engine), and either use the sensor wire there or replace with one that works with your gauge.

How do you replace the turn signal switch located on a 1992 Chevy Corsica?

Since the 92 Chevy Corsica is equipped with SRS (Saftey Restraint System), ie: Airbags, which is located in the steering wheel. In order to replace the turn signal switch you must remove the steering wheel. Therefore I would only highly advise you to take it to a dealer to have this done.

How do you replace a fan belt on 2001 Ford Escape XLT?

Take note of how the belt is routed before you take it off. However there is a diagram of the serpentine belt somewhere under the hood. There is a belt tensioner, which is a pulley looking device, and a 3/8 ratchet will fit in a slot to where you can pull it back enough to get the belt off. I would suggest you replace the tensioner while you are at it.

How do you replace broken tension pulley on caprice?

You take your belt off (I assume it's already off if the tensioner is broke). And you take a ratchet and remove the bolt holding the tensioner in place. It is reverse thread. My S-10 had a 305 from a caprice and it would cut the bracket often because the pully would come off the bearing.

Aftermarket auto parts are parts that are from a company other than the original manufacturer. The parts are usually less expensive. For instance if you needed to get your car fixed you would probably choose the aftermarket part since it would be cheaper but would be just as good.

How do you replace the alternator on a 98 Chrysler Concorde?

There are three main steps behind replacing the alternator on the 1998 Chrysler Concorde. The first is disconnecting the battery cables for safety. Second, is depressing the belt tensioner to allow for the release of the drive belt. Finally the alternator can be unbolted from its bracket for replacement. If the drive belt, idler pulley and tensioner are worn it would be an ideal time to replace this components as part of the install.
