I may need a new alternator and I did it myself a while ago but I couldn’t figure out how to use the bracket tensioner to loosen belt and alternator with lack of room and cold it was a crappy job any tips on how to use bracket tensioner?

It’s a pretty simple thing really. To adjust belt tension: Loosen bolt A which allows that little rectangular block to slide, Loosen bolt B to allow the alternator to pivot, and turn bolt C clockwise to tighten the belt, counter clockwise to loosen the belt. Don’t forget to tighten A and B when you’re done.
