Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner. This square hole is for a 3/8 inch drive socket or pull handle to release the tension off the serpentine belt Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan.

How to install a fan belt on a 2001 Ford Ranger?

From Haynes Repair Manual for Ford Ranger Pickups 1993 - 2005: "The belt's pathway is illustrated on a decal on the radiator support. Tension is set by an automatic tensioner and manual adjustment is not required. Rotate the tensioner clockwise or counter-clockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 are counter clockwise, 3.0 is clockwise) to loosen the tension and hold the tensioner in the released position. Install the belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Release the tensioner". Good luck.
