    Here's the info to adjust the tension on your belts but it's a pain to try and reach in there to measure 10 or 11 mm while trying to guesstimate 22 lbs. of pressure.

    A good trick is to reach in and twist the belt between the pulleys. You should be able to twist it at least sideways and no more than upsidedown.

    Too tight will wreck your alternator bearing and too loose it will squeal constantly.
