If you run the engine at idle you will see the tensioner pulley move, the movement will be slight but steady.

Hi there weekie,
Simple and easy. Really.

Look at the diagram which should be on the radiator fan shroud. This will show you the path the belt takes around the myriad pulleys on the engine. There is a tensioner pulley whose only job is to maintain the tension of the serpentine belt. It may be marked on the diagram. If not, it is the pulley, usually near the top of the engine, that is not the air compressor, alternator, water pump, etc. I have found that a box-end wrench or a socket wrench which fits the bolt on the pulley, is sufficient. Just gently swing the pulley away from the belt slightly. Just enough to release the tension so you can slide the belt off. You don't have to worry about the bolt coming loose, as it should have far more torque holding it on than you'll put on it to release the belt tension. Note, that once the belt is off, the tensioner will swing further than it was before, since the belt is not there to stop it. So when you put the belt back on, you'll have to swing it back down/up to the same position it is in now, if not farther, since the new belt hasn't stretched.
