Yes. Using the center bolt on the tensioner, rotate it counter clockwise. Install the belt on every pulley except the alternator. Rotate the tensioner counter-clockwise and then pull up the slack in the belt to install it on the alternator. Slowly release the tensioner.
Correct. The tensioner will rotate upon itself. This will allow slack in the belt to be pulled up and onto the alternator. Once instaledl, slowly release the tensioner. Do not let it snap back, as this can damage the tensioner.
