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.

How do you change the idler pulley on a 1994 explorer?

On the belt routing diagram under the hood (near the grille, but under the hood) you will find the location of the 'tensioner' pulley. You need to get a 15mm socket and place it on the bolt on the tensioner pulley. Then use a ratchet to put clockwise pressure on the bolt to loosen the tension on the belt. This will allow you to remove the belt from the idler pulley, remove the bolt, put on the new pulley. Now put clockwise pressure on the tensioner pulley again to put slack in the belt so you can slip it around the new idler pulley. You're done.

How do you replace the belts on a 1994 Nissan PU i cannot find the adjustment screw or tensioner pulley for any belt other than the alternator?

If you are talking about the secondary belt you will notice a pulley on the right side (driver's side) of the engine slightly below the level of the radiator shroud. That pulley has a nut on the face of it (14 mmi f I recall) and another behind it (same size it's a tensioner) loosen the front one and then use the back one (with a socket) to move the pulley down (loosening the belt). Then you can replace the belt. Use the tensioner to tighten the belt to the correct tension and then tighten the front nut thus locking the pulley in place. It should take you longer to snake the old belt out and the new belt in than adjust it.

Why does the serpentine belt on a 1994 GMC Conversion van make noise?

It could be the belt or pulley bearing but also could be a pulley that is not level to the belt. The belt tensioner/pully could be out of angle by a few degrees or as in a lot of dodge caravans the main braket assembly/plate that holds the tensioner/pulley is warped and results in the entire tensioner to bolt on with a few degress more slant/level than proper and thus thus belt is always climbing/traveling or moving back and forth on the non grooved/flat/ portion support pullies.... usually being the tensioner pully which results in the squeeking noise..

How do you loosen a serpentine belt on a 1994 Jeep Cherokee sport?

If yours has a tensioner pulley, loosen the bolt at the center of the pulley slightly, then turn the tensioner bolt ( top ) clockwise, tighten the pulley when done. If no tensioner, you will want to tighten at the power steering pump. Loosen the top bolt on the power steering pump, and the bottom nut, both are facing toward the front, then loosen the two on the back of the pump, then turn the adjusting bolt to the desired tension on the belt, the adjusting bolt is below the pump facing the drivers side. The alternator will move when you do this.
