I'm digging into my ignition/fuel delivery systems, replacing/investigating a lot of parts. I want to replace my alternator, but am not sure how to release the belt tension. The Haynes manual says to "Rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to release tension on the drivebelt
If I do this, as I have attempted, the tensioner comes towards me a little, and then the bolt on the pulley starts to turn if I pull hard enoguh. This did not seem right.
Am I going the wrong way?
Can anyone explain to me how to do this???
