SOURCE: change idler pulley
It's a T-40 size, but I removed the bolt by first removing the bracket holding the pulley--I assume you're talking about the alternator idler pulley, the one right below the alternator. The bracket is held in place by three 14 mm bolts which I was able to reach from the top of the engine (after removing the black plastic air tube). I then put the bracket in a vise and "buzzed" off the 14 mm nut using an electric impact wrench ($30 +/- from Heartland of America). Be careful when putting the nut back on--the impact wrench will likely be too much torque!

I used to work for honda and found this issue only once. After checking the driveshaft, differential, and tires, i found that the drive axles were the problem with vibration in the steering or upon acceleration.

You'll need a 1/2 inch socket wrench to fit on the inlet of the idler pulley. You'll also need an extension bar to lengthen the socket wrench because the wrench alone won't be long enough to reach. Apply pressure to the pulley to take the tension off the belt. Slide the belt off and then install the new one using the diagram under the hood as a guide. Check this thread for some photos:

try your power steering pump first if that aint it when you go to take that bolt out take the engine mount bolt off the side your working on so you can lower or raise the motor as you need to get the bolt out
