I'm not absolutely certain on your year but if you check the inside diameter of the belt tensioner you should find either a square or hex hole or a hex bolt head in the middle. If so just take the appropriate tool and by using it as a lever you will be able to release the tension from the belt. It takes two hands so be careful that the tool does not slip off. Most tension pulleys work this way differing only in the type of tool used as the lever.
Hope this helps.

most are spring loaded and require use of a prybar or long big flatblade screwdriver.. some use a socket wrenck with a breaker bar and once tension is off the belt can be removed rather easily unless its behind other belts like the ac belt or power steering which need removed first..

How is the best way to replace a serpentine belt on a 2005 kia sorento


First remove the engine plastic cover by removing the bolts that hold in. Then loosen the nuts at the front of the AC Belt and Power Steering Belt. Now use a Socket set and loosen these two belts by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise.

You have to remove the first two belts (AC & Power Steering) before reaching the Serpentine Belt.

Now loosen the nut on the front of the lowest pulley before loosening the serpentine belt.

To loosen the serpentine belt, you could either remove the metal skid plate at the bottom of the engine by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise or reach down from the top and loosen it with the socket set ( quick & easiest)

Belt vibration


This may be a stupid question, but has the tensioner for the belt been properly tightened?  Does it squeal when it vibrates?  The tensioner for the alternator belt is on top of the alternator and is a bolt you tighten or loosen.  The tensioner for the AC belt is underneath and can accessed with the right front splash guard removed and the car placed on ramps.
