These engines are equipped with an automatic tensioner and do not need manual adjustment.
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
- Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
- Rotate the drive belt tensioner counterclockwise to release the spring tension.
- Remove the drive belt.
- To install, reverse the removal procedure. Make sure the belt is properly seated.
