1994 Cavalier replace serpentine belt- tension
Actually changed out alternator and just need to get belt back on the automatic belt tensioner pulley. Turning its nut in center of this pulley clockwise results in the tentioner pulley, spoken of, to move down and to the right an inch or more. This does not result in it being easier to put serpentine belt back on, however.
Q: Is there a way to decrease the tention even more than it currently is set? If I take off the tentioner to look at it inside; is there a chance of springs getting out of place since it is spring loaded?
Please see bottom photo at:
have the same problem?
