Unhappy Clio - How do i tighten fan belt

From memory you;ll need to losen the alternator and adjust it to tighten the belt - if the belt has been squeeling for some time it may be best to renew it - not very expensive

Hi sunkg - do you know your way around and engine bay - if not I respectfully suggest you get someone to assist in case you cause further probs - have a look on the howstuffworks site and see if it helps - see link below

Hi madnoel10, thanks for that link, the information I read filled in a few gaps. I appreciate that I may make my engine worse, but I would still like to have a go at changing my fan belt. Are you able to tell me how to do this?
