How do you tighten the fan belt on a corsa 1.2?

Cars & Vehicles

If it is a newer corsa (built in the last 12 years or so) if guessing you mean the alternator belt because it doesn't actually have a fan belt as the fan is driven by a electric motor.

To tighten the alternator belt is very easy...Just loosen the two or three bolts holding it on (do not take them right out) pull the alternator so that the belt tightens and then tighten the bolts back up. You may need someone to hold the alternator and belt tight whilst you tighten the bolts back up.

If the belt still continues to squeal after you have tightened it a couple of times it means the belt needs replacing.
