The tensioner also has a 13mm bolt in the center of the tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner toward the driver's side (clockwise) of the car with the 3/8-inch drive breaker bar and the 13mm socket to loosen the tension from the belt. Take your other hand and slide the serpentine belt off the tensioner pulley.

You can also try a serpentine belt tool. Essentially a long, thin metal rod that will fit in the tight spaces. Most parts stores offer one for rental.

2.4 is the same as neon just different body, if you poke your head almost to cowling w hood up look down you will see alt. Tools 15mm to unlock it 13 to loosen and reset tension belt should have less than a quarter tun i once set or squealing will be very annoying squeals keep condition on going tightneng 13mm on bracket till it stops DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN damage to external components can result.

Had to double check serpentine runs a/c and ps alt is a back belt behind serpentine belt

My 06 sebring 2.4 was easy took passenger wheel off took splash guard off the tensioner comes to a square point a 15 mm wrench slides right over the end of it and then push towards front of car releases belt tension take belt of then put new one on
