    it's automatically tensioned.. so adjustment isn't possible.. may i suggest a new belt, as that usually helps..

    it's dead easy.. draw a picture of where it runs around the pulleys...
    the tensioner has a 15mm head on it, use a big spanner to let the tension off, then swap the belt over making sure it wraps the correct way.. then pull on the tensioner again and refit the belt to it.. let go of the tensioner and it's job done.. you may find it easier if the airbox is removed ( it just pulls up and out)

    it's not a fan belt.. it's an auxilliary drive belt....

    take the airbox out, and remove the lower sheild in the inner wing... 15mm spanner for the tensioner, and it's one off, one on...
