Power Steering Belt

1995 Toyota Camry V6 LE Station Wagon, AT, 91,889 miles. Where is the bolt to adjust belt tension?

On the 4-cylinder, unless you have it on a lift, probably the best way to get at it is to remove the right front wheel (support the car well) and the splash guard in the wheel well. Not sure if your V6 is in the same location or not.

Does power steering belt adjustment bolt look the same as alternator's belt adjustment bolt? According to Haynes' repair manual, it is on top of left pulley (close to firewall, right pulley is on or behind crankshaft pulley). However, it doesn't make sense to me, because it looks like a pivot bolt to hold power steering pump. Unlike alternator, it has pivot to hold alternator on the top, a bolt in slot to the bottom of alternator, and a ajustemnt bolt on the front to adjust belt tension.

The power sterring does not have a tensioner setup like the alternator. It's a simple bolt riding in a "track". You loosen it slightly, get tension on witht prybar, and retighten the bolt.
