Our database does not have any information of your vehicle so I do not know the exact design of the system used.

If the power steering belt is by itself, the adjusting would be to loosen the adjusted bolt which holds the power steering pump and then use a lever to tighten the belt tension before retightening the adjusting bolt.

What vin? 6N1, 6V2.?

Engine size?

If it has a Poly-Rib belt, then it most likely has a self tensioning
tensioner. And does not need adjusting.
