Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7
The nut is a normal right hand thread . loosen of the shaft nut and then release the tension on the belt by moving the small long bolt at the back of the bracket. Once the tension is off the belt the pulley will slip of the shaft after you fully remove the nut. Take care of the position of the washers and spacers as their position on reassembly is critical to correct alignment of the belt and pulley.

If this is a automatic tensioner,then spray penatrating oil in behind the tensioner pivot point.Like P B blaster.You may have to tap on the tensioner with a hammer,lightly.and use a tool to force the tensioner to move.If you can move the tensioner a little bit one way,then another,it will eventually free up.If this is a manual tensioner(one that isn`t spring loaded)Then you don`t have all the bolts loose.
