I am following up on a question I found on line similar to mine...I have an 96 olds 88, just replaced water pump, now have a belt tensioner housing leak, that l shaped hose from housing to engine water jacket. I removed alternator as per the instructions to other customer, removed heater hoses, removed all the bolts that i could find,, still won't release, am i missing a bolt? ( i have five decent size bolts, two specifically from alternator, one that is probably shared, and two specifically from housing itself..) Or is that the remaining problem is the fitting from the housing to engine water jacket by heater hoses?

Our database does not have much information on this.
It's actually the tensioner housing by pass hose that I,m after....I was told to be careful because it's brittle and will l apart, it did, when I took it out, the problem was , is, that the housing is turning out to be difficult to either remove or manipulate to allow new hose replacement, apparently this is a dealer only item, and I,m going out to find one this pm, I hope there is enough play in it. The housing, it seems to be revolving around a single bolt perhaps. I have a bout 3/4 inch play, but I can't find that last bolt, if there is one, hoping there enough play to fit new bypas hose in...
