The belt tensioner is self-adjusting.
To re-install a belt tensioner for a 1987 Ford Taurus, tighten the bolt when the tensioner pulley is holding the serpentine belt tight. The belt tensioner sits in a slot and can be adjusted to hold the belt tight.
The easiest way to test a belt tensioner is to pull upward on the belt. The belt should be tight with very little slack if the tensioner is working.
Your car most probably has an automatic belt tensioner that keeps the belt tight and in proper spec. If the belt has too much play in it, the belt tensioner will need to be replaced.
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
u do not adjust belt tensioner if belt is loose, u need to replace belt as tensioner works automatically
Most serpentine belt systems have a self adjusting tensioner.
if your belt is loose, the tensioner probably needs replacing. the tensioner is the mechanism that keeps the belt tight.
you don't. This car has an automatic belt tensioner. The spring inside this part is probably worn out. You have to replace the tensioner. It is also possible that the belt that is now on the engine has stretched beyond the point that the tensioner can compensate for; the belt may feel tight, but not be tight enough. In that case, of course, replace the belt. The Haynes manual has good instructions on how to do that, and the belt is not particularly expensive. ---------------------------------------- http://youtube.com/watch?v=SB_NEsq88v0
You can't. it has an automatic self adjusting belt tensioner on it.
the tensionjer is a spring tensioner so if it is to low and not holding tension on the belt you need a new tensioner
There is no adjustment you can do. It has an automatic self adjusting belt tensioner. If the belt seems to loose you may need to replace the tensioner and belt.
