I’ve done the whole process correctly but when I tighten the lock nut and started tightening the tensioner bolt the belt is not tightening like it should. I don’t know if I am doing something wrong or missed a step but something is not letting me tighten the belt.
Do you
have the same problem?

Take a look at the diagram. Just to make sure we understand what is happening. You are putting the belt on as shown and tightening the adjusting bolt to add the tension and then tightening the lock nut to hold it in place? If so and it is not moving, it sounds like the bolt may be stripped and not actually moving the pulley.

If you can get a video of what is happening that may help us figure this out but if it is not moving when turning it then you will most likely need to replace it.

That is odd. I can see your reason for the question. Can you get a recording of you trying to tighten it and so we can see what is happening? Thanks
