SOURCE: How do I release belt
Hi,according to what year you have.Look for either an adjusting bolt and through bolt at the alternator.Loosen both and push the alternator back.If it has an extra pulley look for a belt adjusting bolt close to this pulley.You have to loosen the bolt that goes through the front of this pulley.(the bolt that holds the pulley to engine).Then turn the adjuster to loosen belt.Some of the later models have automatic belt tensioners.You have to put a wrench on the tensioner pulley bolt and relieve the spring pressure.I hope this helps!!!Please rate this answer.Thanks and Good Luck!!!

adjust ur belt by following steps
now that you know where the components are these components are driven by a belt. So when you turn your AC on there’s a belt that’s driving the AC compressor, when you turn the stirring wheel and you have that nice that easy feel of turning the stirring wheel when you’re parallel parking your car that’s the power stirring pump doing its job. Your alternator is keeping the battery charged, the lights on and the engine running. So I want to show you where the belts are, what they look like, how to adjust them and how to tell a bad belt from a good belt. As you can see these are your drive belts, this is the AC drive belt it drives the AC compressor, this is the alternator drive belt it drives the alternator, if you look down here you can see this is where the adjustment is on that AC compressor belt, if you look right here this is the top adjusting bolt for adjusting the alternator either up or down to tighten or loosen the belt. There’s a bolt down here that locks the alternator in place and this bolt is the pivot bolt for the alternator. So if you’re going to let’s say remove your alternator belt you’d have to remove these covers, loosen this bolt, loosen this bolt that’s underneath this cover and adjust this bolt to either lower the alternator or raise the alternator, if you’re belt was too loose you’ll pull up on the alternator, if the belt was too tight you’ll

If yuo look by the pu
lley tensioners for each you will find two bolts that secure the tensioners so the tensioner can move freeley the one you are looking for I believe was on the top and middle side of bracket on the left side of rear of engine as you look at the windshield loosen them with a socket then the left tensioner I had to use a open end wrench to loosen the tensioner pulley all the way down as there was no room for a socket wrench. I was a little challenging in all it took me an hour to replace all four belts but that was because the person who owned this car before me had left off the bushing for the alternator leaving it laying in the engine and put the bolt back on eating up two of the four belts entirely. The big trick was getting the two inner belts on first as it was so tight but once I was able to feed them in It was all good to go from there on.I truely hope this helps you by the way tighten the alternator pulley first then proceed to the two outer belts easier to hold them in place that way

Check out this link... better than a diagram, a photo.
note: on my screen this guy's "purple" circle looks more like a light blue, maybe lavender.

I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.

Using a 15mm wrench attached to the drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate
the tensioner clockwise to release the tension. Remove the drive belt
from the pulley. When installing the new drive belt, ensure that the
drive belt is routed correctly and note the position of the indicator
mark on the tensioner.
