03 concorde 2.7 alt/power steering belt replacement

I want to replace belt but the SM says I need a tension gauge but I do not have one.

Do I need one? Or can it be done just tightening the tensioner pully bolt and nut to spec and go from there?

All I have is a torque wrench. If not should I take it to a mechanic and make sure if they do it they torque it correctly?

I dont want to do it my self afraid if I over tighten or leave it lose my timing might get screwed if that even possible. Just dont want do this right.

Thanks

Thanks

Anything you do to that belt will not affect timing.

You want to tighten so that pressing down on the belt in mid-span deflects it from 1/4 to 3/8". That is the best way to it. The tensioner gauges don't work. I bought a brand new one and used it according to the instructions. It made the belt *way* too tight - would have ruined some bearings for sure if I had left it like that. I readjusted by the method I described before starting the engine.
