lol well not sure anything with that info but if no belt tensioner u usually have to loosen the alternator to replace that belt, and the powersteering for the other belt, if no tensioner, make sure to pry on these two accesories in a "solid spot" so that the belt tension is able to move up and down bout 1/4 inch per foot of free belt
