SOURCE: Serpentine Belt Tensioner
take belt off then make sure you have the right size socket and breaker bar to loosen the bolts on the tensioner and do everything in reverse to put new on

SOURCE: I cant put my surpatian
Put an 18mm, or whatever size is correct, socket on 1/2" drive bar, or ratchet , and put it securely on nut in center of tensioner pulley. Standing in front of car, you need to pull it upward, with bar on right side, or from passenger side, pull toward you with bar pointing upward. If no socket, try a long wrench same size that will fit on nut good & snug, be sure in each case to pull as straight as possible to avoid wrench slipping off.

Look for the 1/2" square hole on the tensioner. That hole is were you place a 1/2" breaker bar, to relieve the tension, by pulling on the bar.

IF THE TENSIONER IS RELEASED AND WILL NOT MOVE NOW IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED BUT DO YOU HAVE THE BELT ROUTED CORRECTLY,I,VE SEEN THIS SO MANY TIMES IF THE BELT ROUTING GUIDE IS NOT STILL UNDER HOOD LIKE ON THE RADIATOR SUPPORT AREA YOU MAY OBTAIN ONE AT AUTOZONE FOR THAT SPECIFIC VEHICLE THEY WILL PRINT FOR FREE

yes belt tesioner is internal part of cooling system it has two plastic elbows with o-rings that crack crumble and deterioate haven,t seen crack in aluminum part though but remove belt by releasing tensioner remove alternator and idler pulley then remove bolts holding tensioner assembly to head and block this entire thing can be purchased thru napa i know but do not reuse the plastic elbows and make sure to lubricate the o-rings on new elbows so when istalled puthe the elbows in the assembly first lower it in place lined up with waterholes and gently push in and slide in place
