usually you don't. Use a socket wrench with an extra long handle or "breaker bar". Turn in the direction indicated on the tensioner, and the tensioner will move enough for you to remove the belt. Once the belt is off, you can remove the tensioner if you have to.


Place a breaker bar on the lug/hole on the tensioner; then pry against the tensioner.


Insert a 3/8 breaker bar or wrench into the notch on the tensioner and pull upwards (towards back of the car). Then you can change the belt.


1/2 inch breaker bar insert in the tensioner.


There is a spring loaded belt tensioner with a pulley located below the alternator. You will need a 3/8 drive ratchet or breaker bar(breaker bar gives you more leverage). Insert the breaker bar into the square hole on tensioner and push down or counterclockwise and remove belt. If tensioner does not spring back spray it with lubricant and work it back and forth-they stick sometimes.


The tensioner/tensioner pulley is located on the passenger side of the motor and hold the tension on the serpentine belt. In order to change the serpentine belt you must relax the tension with a breaker bar or equivalent. We have more info, including diagrams at our enthusiast forum, at www.trailvoy.com


Use a breaker bar or rachet to move tensioner out of the way


You have to take the two bolts off of the arm then the whole rotor comes off its a size 18mm ned a half inch breaker bar and a pipe is helpful they are stubborn!!


there should be a hole on the tensioner bar that fits a 3/8 ratchet. using the ratchet rotate the bar counter-clockwise(on a 2000 mustang) to loosen the belt.


The average cost of a 2000 Oldsmobile And tree sway bar is $68. The sway bar can be found for as low as $45 at some discount auto-parts stores.


I have worked with my 1994 and 1995 models of 900 - presuming the same for newer models. The tensioner is located on theupper end near the firewall. I found it most easily managed by using a 1/2 inch breaker bar.



1. Pull the tensioner back with a 3/8 inch breaker bar and remove the belt. 2. Take the bolt holding the tensioner onto the head out. 3. Take the tensioner off.


Use a 3/8"extension bar to lever the tensioner ( there is a corresponding whole in the bracket that the tensioner pivots on).To hold it in position theres a whole where you can inset a bolt.


, i also have 97 mountianeer, when i changed my alternator i couldn't figure out where the tensioner was. but i looked at the belt routing diagram located under the hood by the headlights and the tensioner is on bottom of the motor on the passenger side so you have to get it from the bottom, i hope that helps you. If it is the same tensioner style as the 2004, you can get it from the top using a 3/8" drive breaker bar inserted in the square hole by the pulley on the tensioner. I just replaced mine 2 days ago.


To get the belt off, you have to put a breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner, and either pull up or down. The tensioner spring is what tighten's the belt. It is just three bolts then to get the tensioner off.


Use a 1/2" or 3/8' breaker bar to hold belt tensioner open


it located above our task bar


There is a spring-loaded tensioner pulley that keeps tension on the belt. The tensioner should have a place to fit a ratchet wrench or breaker bar (may or may not need a socket). The tensioner bar rotates clockwise or counterclockwise to release the tension on the belt. Be sure and note how the belt is routed so you will install the new belt in the same pattern. The tensioner is self-adjusting.


Tensioners are used to tighten the belt on the engine so where ever your belt is (usually on the front of the engine) is where the tensioner will be located. There are generally 2 types of tensioners - on the older vehicles the alternator is used as the tensioner, there may be a bolt that you will loosen and tighten to adjust it. On the newer vehicles the tensioner looks like a pully and it is spring loaded, it will have a square hole in the center of it you can use either a breaker bar or a 1/2 inch drive socket wrench depending on which one you can get in there with. You will need to pull the tensioner the opposite direction of the belt to release the tension on the belt.


The belt tensioner on most GM vehicles has either a 15 or 16 mm nut. Put a socket on a long breaker-bar and use it to back off the tensioner.


Use a long 3/8 rachet or 3/8 breaker bar. The 3/8 square end will go into the slot on the tensioner


If your serpentine belt is loose, then your tensioner is either bad or it hasn't been seated properly. If you back out the bolt holding the tensioner, you should see small round projection on the side where the tensioner meets the engine. It should fit into a corresponding hole in the engine block. Tighten the bolt. Don't try and do this with the belt in position, it's next to impossible. Use a 1/4" breakover bar and insert it into the tensioner- you will see a place where it will fit. Place it where the handle is pointing toward the firewall. Push down on the bar and the tensioner should move far enough to position the belt over the tensioner. Release the bar and the tensioner should spring back to where it supplies tension to the belt. If it doesn't- then you need a new one. They're relatively cheap, and it's a good idea to get a new one each time you buy a new belt anyway.

on a 96 (3.1 V6) it's a side mount it is on the passenger side of the car on the side of the engine, very close to the fender. the tensioner wheel will accept either an open end wrench or a 1/2 inch or larger pull bar. You will need a pull bar to change the tensioner or the belt, you can rent them from many autoparts stores.


On the belt tensioner you will see a spot to insert a half inch drive breaker bar or ratchet to move tensioner off belt.
