There should be a diagram of the pully path under the hood. Look for a pully that doesn't look like a logical place for a powered unit. It will be relatively small compared to the other pullies.
If you are refering to the cam belt tensioner, they are spring loaded and self adjusting. The V6 tensioner can lose tension and become very noisy, if this is the case, replace the belt and tensioner. If, however, you have an ealier model, you will have up to 3 manual tensioners. Tightening the bolts on these loosens then tentioner (moves the wheel down) IMPORTANT: Don't forget to tighten the lock nuts when you're done adjusting!! :)
The hex head looking bolt DOES NOT GET TURNED AT ALL...The tensioner is spring loaded...FIND the CORRECT bolt to release the spring pressure. My daughter has a 1995 Mustang (3.8,v6) the spring loaded belt tensioner has a square hole that should fit to a 3/8 ratchet or extension . Then just attach to a breaker bar and relieve tension ,it helps to have someone you trust hold the breaker bar while you change the belt. Most likely though the tensioner can be locked up due to corrosion inside the bushing /bearing area. In that case buy a new tensioner before performing the belt change. Napa by me has the tensioner for about $30.
right side / pass. side has mark on outside rigtht and left has it on outside left, a arrow shape in the metal. bottom crankshaft pulley is 12 o'clock top center. i believe you need to repklace tensioner when doind tim belt replacement and i have been struggling to get the belt on due to cannot push back the spring loaded tensioner pulley. may be a stuck tensioner.
Assuming it's a typical FWD V6, you need to first remove the serpentine rubber belt that drives the water pump, pwr steering, alternator, AC, etc.Tension on this belt is achieved by the spring loaded idler roller ( the part you want to replace).CAREFULLY insert a pry bar or heavy long screw driver behind the idler puller and press down hard ( need some muscle for this). ..this will relieve the tesion on the belt which will enable you to slide it off whichever pully is easiest. Once the belt is off, let the spring loaded pully relax and then remove the bolts holding the tensioner assmbly to the motor. good luck
It has a serpentine belt and you have a bolt in the front ( passenger side)of the block that releases the tension on the belt,the tensioner is NOT spring loaded, and remove the belt. Install the new one with the schematic on the fan shroud, If it isn't there draw one before removing the belt. Don't rely on memory. you cannot remember at least if you are old like me LOL
Well, assuming it has the same 3.1 V6 as mine, and the spring is ejecting the unit outward in danger of losing the belt, I wasn't about to pay a $500 towing bill to get her home, so I took the pry bar from the jack that comes with the vehicle, and an 8" section of 1" diameter radiator hose and pryed the tensioner spring back into its normal position, then jammed the hose between the tensioner and the inside of the engine compartment. Had to make a few adjustments, but it made it several hours on the freeway and got me home.
