first loosen the nut on the back of the adjuster arm, then get underneath the car with a 13mm open end wrench and a long flathead screwdriver, then loosen the two on the bottom of the power steering pump and then pry the pump out to tighten the belt. While holding the screwdriver tighten the two lower bolts, then go back up top and tighten the adjuster.

BTW the manual doesnt say to do it this way but most adjusters are crap and this takes a whopping 5 mins.
