replacing alt and belts 99 sebring is idler the tentioner where is idler for p/s belt
There isn't one. The power steering pump is the tensioner. you have to loosen it from under the car.
The easiest way to get to the bottom bolt (pivot bolt) on the alternator is to take out the oil pressure Sending Unit located above the Oil Filter. (1 1/16" oil sending unit socket). You can then get an extension and swivel socket on the Pivot Bolt. This bolt 13mm (I think) is now accessible from the front of the engine. Your manual should have a pic on it. Also, it's easier to get the electrical connectors off the alternator after you unbolt it and pull it up. This will only work if you have the AC electrical plug and oil pressure sending units Removed. You shouldn't have to mess with the AC compressor to do this job, other than removing the A/C sending plug/s and oil pressure sending unit.

I rotate the crankshaft with a ratchet while prying the belt over the side of the pulley. I do the opposite to install the belts. It may not be the right way, but it’s fast and it sure works for me. Good Luck on your repairs. mark14five
