You mean you want to take off the belt, or the tensioner? Either way, the tensioner should have a pin hole in the shaft, Get a paper clip or piece of steel that will fit in the pin hole, a pry bar or clamp or something to gently push the plunger shaft back in and then put the paper clip in the keeper hole. now you can remove and put it back in, when it is all set, pull the pin, yours might not be that style, but it might be, you should not be able to move that thing with your fingers, if you can, it is no good. check it out, hope this helps.

Rotate the tensioner. Remove the old belt. Thread the new belt around the pulleys so the last part is about to go onto a round idler. Rotate the tensioner to give some slack and slide the belt onto the idler. Release the tensioner. Done

make a sketch of the belt before removal, helps with refitting. if there is a belt tensioner release it , if auto tension fit a socket and pry bar to the alternator pulley nut and release tension and remove belt, disconnect battery and remove alternator bolts.

In most cases there is one tensioner that is spring loaded, you use a tool to push or pull the tensioner away from the belt to release the tension.
Make sure you have a diagram of how the belt is routed before you remove it.
