if you look by the crankshaft pulley to the right you will see a tubular looking shaft about 1" diameter , you will notice you can't get the belt out from under this piece , it has a nut on it , once you take the nut off , you will notice it has a star shaped point on the tip of the stud , it requires a reverse torx socket or wrench to remove the stud , when you get the stud out the tube piece it can be removed , then the belt comes off , replace the belt , now comes the tricky part , fitting that tube spacer back into its spot , it can be difficult , once its in place put the stud back in , and put the nut on and tighten it , your pretty much a pro now . thanks.

SOURCE: how to remove belt tensioner???
you need a long bar... the kind with a 3/8 inch socket head that goes into the opening in the tensioner and you move it that way to loosen it so you can get the belt off... then undo the three or so bolts holding the tensioner on... you will probably need a vise to hold it when you take the bolt off for the pulley. replace the pulley and bolt it back on...

What engine do you have in the bonnie? Supercharged or non? Belt routings are different...if you have an owners manual it will be in there.
