Hi guys what I would like to know is where is the tension adjustment made on these serpentine belts. I need to change the belt but I can't find the adjuster to take the tension off. Can somebody describe or provide some documentation showing the tensioner setup.
Thanks in advance...

The tensioner does have tension marks - they're easiest seen with a mirror.

looking at the front of the engine it is to the right, yes

the tensioner has 2 pulleys, the lower one is the one that provides the tension..it moves side to side by a spring

Also check the underside of the bonnet. There should be a little diagram to give you a helping hand.

Unless some fool pulled it off :x
