Dumb Question - belts/ alternator

296 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Red Regal T
I think I'm losing my mind.I've had the alternator off, I replaced the brushes, took a while. Replacing the Serpentine-belt. the " adjuster" that holds the pulley to the left and slightly below the alternator that does bolt to the engine? I only remember removing and only have two bolts that attach the alternator itself to the car. I suspect the tension created once the alternator is bolted would hold that pulley in place? but where did the bolt disappear to

Just put an 18mm wrench on the bolt in the center of the tensioner pulley. Push it down and the pulley will move so you can put the belt on the alternator pulley. Let off, and the belt will be tensioned. usa
