Hi guys,
Long time viewer, first time poster.
I have an efii Gli that has thrown an A/C pump. My issue is that I have travelling up the coast first thing friday morning and I need to get the old girl going again. The A/C Pump has thrown it's bearings and clutchs so it is well and truley had the richard. I have pulled the pump out easy enough, but for the life of me i have no idea where the belt tensioner is, so i did a little giggling to get the pump out. So if some one could explain or show me where the tensioner is i would appreciate it. An online manual would be really handy. I usually work on 60's mini's which only use the alt as the tensioner. All this new fangled serpent belt is a little odd to me.
As i only have tomorrow morning to find a pump and install it( ihave to be at work at 1pm) Any hints as to where to find a good second hand one near calingfrod in sydney would be appreciated.
If i can't find one in time, is it possible to retension the exisiting belt without the a/c pump in place or is there another belt that i can get from repco or the likes to replace until i do get a pump.
I really do appreciate any help you guys can give me on this one. Thanks in advance

Cheers
Aaron

You get a socketless wrench into the square slot on the serpetine assembly, and push in a clockwise motion....... this will move the assembly towards the passenger side, relieving tension on the belt.

Sorry, im sure theres some better words to put it in

The big circle is the tensioner, and the little circle is where you release the tension using a 3/8 ratchet with a short extension on the end. You just fit it into the square hold and turn clockwise to release the tension.
