there is a bolt to the left of the alternator.....tighten or loosen to adjust belt tension.

You want it tight, but not so tight that it will break. If it is loose, it won't do any good spinning either. Find a happy medium. I always did a check by squeezing it by hand.

There is a bolt on the left and right of the alternator on the bottom. Loosen them then loosen the bolt that the tightening bolt is held onto the guide. Then the start tightening the bolt at the top facing perpendicular to all the rest. Tighten all other bolts then you are done.
