Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Hyundai Santa Fe 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
How is the spring loaded belt tensioner moved so that the belt can be removed? Neither the Chilton's manual or the instructions on Hyundai's site describe this enough or accurately. Hyundai's site indicates to use a 16mm spaner (sic). The Chilton book says to use a long ratchet or breaker bar. There appear to be only 2 bolts holding the tensoner assembly to the engine, but it seems like I may have only to push the pulley downward to loosen the tension. I can't see how to do this without leveraging against another pulley and/or the belt itself, risking damage. This is a 2.7L V6. Any help would be truly appreciated!
Thank You - Lawrence
