SERPENTINE BELT REPLACEMENT

2002 Toyota Camry

Engine Performance problem
2002 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100k miles

Squealing belt. How do I replace? Just loosen tensioner and replace? Or loosen 2 or 3 bolts, then crank on key tensioner bolt to loosen and remove the belt?
It is hard to see exactly what is needed. What are the torques of the related bolts?

Actually, the cast tensioner assembly is located forward of the diagram shown. The left hand bolt, 14mm, must be loosened and then the right hand “bolt”, 17mm or 19mm, that is part of the casting can be pulled as shown to release the spring tension. It is easier to slide the belt off the tensioner pulley than where shown.
