SERPENTINE BELT REPLACEMENT

1991 Chevrolet Cavalier

Hi; I have a problem trying to get a belt replaced on my '91 Cavalier, 2.2L with no A/C; there is no visible belt diagram as it was painted over. I have just replaced the alternator and I think I have the belt going on correctly, but I can't get it completely into place because I can't find any type of tensioner. After reading a couple of articles, I am led to believe that this vehicle has an idler wheel. If this is the case, can I just release tension on this idler wheel in order to slip the belt into place? I would appreciate any help I can get with this problem. Thanks; mgreenleaves

Hey
the 91 2.2 does have a tensioner, it is located below and between the alt and p/s pump its either a 13, 14 or 15mm put a socket on it and push towards the front of the car easy and slip the belt on
