Replaced seat belt tensioner

ok, today i took off old tensioner and put new one on which was easy but then i went to put on belt and for some reason it was kinda loose, then i figured out they gave me wrong size belt, so then i went and got the belt size that was originally on the car when i got it and now the belt is still just a lil bit loose, i was wondering if there is a way to tighten the belt more or ?. cuz i was getting a squeal when i tapped on the accelerator before i replaced tensioner, now i get a squeal when idle and no squeal when i step on accelerator. unless i really hit it. need help, thanks.

yes all you need to do is in the tensioner itself there is a plug you need to pull out and that will release the spring making the belt stretch and tighten up.... i had the problem and after a while we figured out that you need to pull that plug from the tensioner (it seems that plug is part of it but its not... its made to make you life easer .....hope that helps

Bringing this old thread back to life. Got an error message today. After clearing the error with INPA it comes back immediately. Looks like my passenger seat belt tensioner needs to be replaced. This looks like it should be easy enough to do but I'm looking for guidance from anyone that has done this before or have any useful advice to offer.
