The belt tensioner is right in front of your alternator. You will see a big long screw going down in front of the alternator and to the left and underneath the screw you will see a bolt. Loosen the bolt and then loosen the screw and the belt should come off when you loosen it enough. Just did it not long ago on mine, very simple process.

You can relieve the tension on your 1994 Mitsubishi Gallant belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. The tensioner pulley can be loosened by turning the retaining bolt to the left.

I assume you mean the idler pulley on your timing assembly, if this is the case then the belt is too tight loosen tensioner pulley. if you mean the automatic tensioner pulley for your alternator and A/C and the like, the you probably need a new tensioner] Good Luck

Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The power steering belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new power steering belt on and tighten it by sliding the tensioner pulley to the left.

There is only 2 tensioner pulley on a Dodge Shadow 2.5L and that's right above the belt that drives the water pump and alternator... that tensioner pulley opperates the AC Compresser and the other one goes for the timing belt.

Put a ratchet on the tensioner pulley bolt... set your ratchet on "loosen" turn the tensioner pulley and assembly upword... hold it there and remove the belt... DO NOT LET GO OF THE RATCHET AFTER YOU REMOVE THE BELT slowly let the tensioner pulley move back to a resting position...
