The belt tensioner automatically set the correct tension on the accessory drive belt. No further adjustment is necessary.
Drive Belt Routings
Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.
Removal & Installation
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt.
WARNINGNever suddenly let go of the tensioned idler pulley. The force of the spring pressure suddenly released may damage the idler pulley mechanism. Always release the spring pressure gradually.
- Route the belt over the pulleys making sure all the grooves in the pulleys and the belt line up correctly. Refer to the accessory belt routing diagrams above.
- Rotate belt tensioner clockwise and slip drive belt over idler pulley on tensioner.
