    Got a 1997 Accord LX, auto f22B. It's metallic green too. But I'm replacing the alternator on the beast. Is there a belt tensioner on the alternator, or on another end of a pulley? Not too worried about getting it out, just making sure the new one sits right and is tight.

    Thanks.

    I dont belive there is a tensionar for the alt. belt. It should be the alternator it self that keeps tension on the belt. Take a look at the way its set up now and do the same thing when you get the new alternator.

    no tensioner, you have to adjust the alt. to make the belt the right tension

    use a flat bar works better if you have two guys, just make sure its not to tight
