1997 926 Drive belt slack

I've just replaced the belts on my 1997 926TE, However the drive belt is very slack around the idler pulley and it won't drive the friction plate. I suspect that there should be a tension spring somewhere to pull the pulley into place and tension the belt but I cannot locate it or where it should fit. I bought the blower 2 winters ago without an operators manual so any tips will be appreciated.

Thanks for the diagram it helped solve the problem. I had routed the drive belt incorrectly round the idler pulley (rookie mistake!). Once I had routed it correctly it worked perfectly.
