Inside the idler pulley mount you will note a square hole that is for using a socket breaker bar to move the tensioner. (I don't remember if the retangular hole is 3/8 or 1/2 inch but one of the two) Insert the breaker bar de-tension the belt and route it. You can use a ratchet but a breaker bar will not slip and is safer to use.

Thread 1008672 of this link has an excellent routing diagram for the serpentine belt:

The tensioner is item 8 of the above link.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You will only get fuel at the injectors when cranking, the pump wont run(Usually) with just the key on. This is to prevent the pump running in a crash and feeding the engine.
