Default Timing belt replace, not tight.

I recently did a timing belt/water pump replacement on my 2001 accord lx 2.3l. How do you tighten the belt properly with the auto tensioner? It's weird compared to other cars that have a spring load.

i just loosen the tension bolt a lil and retighten it while guiding tensioner to the desired tighteness then i tighten the support screws on the lil handles. go on youtube theres a few 6th gen how to's so you can see what im talking about

should be the same procedure as the one outlined in the timing belt write-up in the faq thread.
