Hi there,

The can belt tensioner is located under the timing cover, you will have to remove front pulley, engine mount, top & bottom covers and timing belt, the adjuster is attached by a single bot, it is mounted on a pivot plate that will move when the bolt is released and spring tension will adjust the tensioner on the belt, if removing the belt you will have to set up the timing marks first,
