Slowly return the tensioner to the original position.
Remove the belt.

Installation Procedure

Thread the drive belt through all the pulleys except for the power steering pump (1) and the drive belt tensioner (6).
Insert a 1/2 inch drive extension into the drive belt tensioner.
Push down on the tensioner and feed the belt around the tensioner wheel.
With the tension applied, complete the belt routing. Make sure the belt is properly seated in all pulleys.
Slowly return the tensioner back to its original position. This will apply tension to the drive belt.
After installation, check the belt for proper seating on the pulleys, proper routing and alignment.
Start the engine and check for proper belt and accessory operation.
