Hi, the engine mounting bracket needs to be removed from the engine, the Tensioner Assembly is bolted on from the backside.... It requires the ability to raise the engine and support the passenger side while the engine mounting bracket is removed....
NOTE: Slight axial movement of the tensioner arm is normal. Tensioner arm should move freely and maintain 50-70 lb. tension on belt.
