Belt Idle Pulley

I actually picked the part up about a week ago. Mine has been squeaking and moaning for ages now and before the thing seizes I think it's time I get off my ass and change it.

Now when I was looking at the belt I looked at the belt tensioner but I did not see any nut or anything to lossen the belt tensioner. I knew how to drop the belt on my cavy (alternator went 3 times- what a job that is on that car) but this one for some reason has me stumped. Also when looking at how the belt is routed is it possible to just take the pulley out without "dropping" belt completly and using a bar of some sort to bend the belt a tad.

For those who know about the problem I am having with the cooling fan not coming on I still have not figured out what the heck it is. I am bringing it to a garage this Friday.

do you see a square peg opening in the tensioner? stick a plain ratchet in there, and use your muscles, doesn't require much effort

Did mine last week. Mine was held on with bolts, not nuts.

Drive it like you stole it!

Yeah I agree with Frankjc, but I think that it was just posted for reference to the breakerbar loosening location.

Same here my tensioner has bolts. I seen that image also on the Autozone website to. Thanks for your help guys especially Icarus I would have been looking all over for that. Did it today and it took not even 5 minutes. Car is running so much quieter now.
