I would question why you think you need to adjust it. How many miles do you have on the engine. You should replace the T-belt every 90,000 miles. There is an adjustment you can perform. Go to www.alldatadiy.com to spend $26.95 and get any info you need on that car. Good luck

If your cam seal is leaking then your crank seal should also be replaced. If your have any oil on the T-belt it has to be replaced also.
