My '02 626 (4cyl, LX) squeals horribly at start up. Its coming from my serpentine belt. I cannot locate the tensioner. Can someone please post a picture of what I am looking for? How do I adjust the tension once I can locate the tensioner?

i don't think it should have a serpentine belt but i could be wrong, there should be two belts in parallel on the passenger side of the engine, the tensioner for the alternator is the really long bolt that runs through it but you'll have to undo the bolt on the slide before you move the tensioner bolt

The other belt operates the power steering pump and A/C compressor. The p/s pump mount bracket acts as the tensioner for that belt.
