Hey Guys, i know it probably easy to do. I need to tighten these to belts. Anybody have any detailed info on how to do it with hopefully pictures? Is it in the manual?

Thanks

Take off alternator cover. Locate PS pump on passenger side front. There is a long bolt going vertically. That adjusts the tension. There is a horizontal bolt below this. That is the lockout or whatever you want to call the one that keeps it tight once adjusted. Loosen that one first. Then go to the vertical one and tighten or loosen until you get desired belt tightness. Re-tighten the lockout bolt. Replace alternator cover. Have a beer?

A/C has an idler pulley below it, loosen the idler pulley first, then loosen the belt with the long bolt going through its bracket.

Whoops. Meant a/c, not PS pump but I'm sure you figured it out.

Guys, thanks this helped me tighten my power steering pump. But how can I tighten the Air Conditioning belt. I see the Idler screw below it but that didn't seem to do anything to the tension of the belt. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing

For the AC you loosen the nut in red (ac idler pulley), then you loosen/tighten the bolt in yellow
to adjust the tension. When the tension is good, re-tighten the bolt in red.

Thanks for the reply... This explains it all. Hopefully it can help someone else too.
