Hi guys, I have a loose fan belt on my 5.7l.

Im working in the dark and cant find either the tensioner or any indications for wear marks usage.

Does anyone have any diagrams or advice

cheers Drew

The tensioner puller is No1 in the diagram below, there should a wear indicator on the tensioner. There should also be a tensioner for the A/C belt but I don't have a diagram.
The tensioners tighten the belt automatically and can't be adjusted manually. Either the tenioner is stuffed or you need a new belt.

Hey Mate. Thanks for your help. Yeah the tab on the tensioner is in line with the marks on the left. I'm guessing the mark on the left is when the belt is new. Tensioner looks like it is moving freely, so I'm guessing it fan belt time. Thanks again for your help.
