Belt tensioner's in an r50

Recommended Posts

In my vehicle I have some mad belt squeak and its starting to get annoying. After a bit of research I determined that I don't have enough tension on the belts. Knowing this I looked under the hood and sure enough there pretty loose. I also noticed that there is not automatic belt tensioner's. So with this in mind, How can i adjust the tension on my belts? If anyone knows, that'd be helpful. Visual aids would also be helpful.

See MA-13. Concept is pretty simple: there's a bolt and a nut for each tensioning pulley (in your case, 2 idlers and 1 on the p/s pump). The bolt loosens or tightens the belt tension by moving the pulley, and the nut holds the pulley's position. The diagram shows you which nut to loosen, which bolt to turn, and where to measure for belt deflection.

and the alt has a bolt from the adjusting bracket to loosen then another bolt for the adjustment at the end of the bracket 14 and 12 mm if I remember correctly
