I Have installed a new alternator and belt, but I dont know how to set up the tension on the belt, I believe it is a n auto tension pulley and I can loosen the nut on the pulley but nothing happens after this, what do I need to do now?

There should be a slot in the tensioner where you put in an ALLEN KEY. And tension up the belt then lock up the bolt !

Hi I have a 19mm bolt but that does not move enough to get the bolt back in position.
