Question about Cars & Trucks
Theres one bolt attaching it to engine, remove belt from tensioner pulley, remove bolt, take out of engine compartmt, Iwould replace entire tensioner, but you can replace just the pulley. onebolt holds it on. makes better sense to replace entire unit. it wears out like every else. 50-60 bucks.

Tensioner is attached with 2 10mm bolts at block.place jack under oil pan,remove upper engine mount,jack engine up slightly to gain access to tensioner.it's easier if you remove the pulley bolt & pulley first then the 2 10mm bolts.

Using a socket and breaker bar take the tension off of the belt so you can set it aside. Then take the retainer bolt off that's holding the pulley. If it is a center bolt they are some times threaded backwards (check the direction you pulled when releaving the tension and go the other way). Replace the pulley, replace the belt and job done.

Make sure you locate the Serpentine Belt Routing Sticker before you proceed. If not make an excellent drawing and take a GOOD Picture. Do NOT try to just remember how it goes back on Should be a 15mm wrench to loosen tensioner to remove belt. Locate mounting bolts to tensioner and remove, replace with NEW tensioner tighten bolts then use wrench arc torque about 15 degrees should snug it down, reroute belt then using 15mm pull tensioner to either side of belt to install belt in correct route. Remove all tools and body parts from engine bay. Do not start engine if anyone is in the vicinity of engine bay. Belt may fly off if you did not do it right and cause all kinds of shrapnell, if it doesn't fly off, visually inspect belt before starting and after, I would suggest being very careful before during and after starting to insure safety.
