    AU Falcon - Serpentine Belt Tensioner

    Does anyone know how to release the tensioner for the serpentine belt on an AU falcon?
    My alternator died and I've got a replacement to go on, but can't get the belt loose...

    there is a 1/2 or 1/4 (i cant quite remember) hole right in the middle...

    put your rachet or (powerbar preferably) in & hive it hell..

    they are usually so tight you dont think they are going to move but they do

    Cheers - that will help heaps when I put the new belt on.

    Ended up cutting the old one after deciding it was probably time for a new one (cracking & unknown history).

    Put the new alternator in, tighten everything up, and go do to the wiring and they've given me one with different plugs. Fuckers...

    Mofo hammer is your friend - fixes your initial problem then keeps you entertained for days as you fix the rest of the damage

    I have been tempted to get the sledge hamme out of the shed.
    But I need the car to get around, now the good bike is gone, and the old bike is in bits...
