Drivebelt question

How do you adjust the tension of a drivebelt in 2.5L 4Cylinder engine and if anyone has a diagram that would be great

Loosen the upper and lower front facing bolts, around the back side looking down behind down through the air box/filter, there are two more bolts you have to loosen. Then around the front side again, on the lower right side there is the tensioner bolt which adjusts belt tension.

The bolts he talking about are on the power steering pump.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

And there is a good chance they are going to be seized up. I've seen numerous threads on them being locked up. Good Luck!

A1. Get some PB Blast and keep them soaking wet for a day or so before attempting to loosen the bolts. Don't forget to spray the tensioner bolt. If you look behind the pulley, you'll see it's got a square threaded nut, that's the one that will be solidly rusted.
