Question about 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier
You're right-- the power sterring pump pulley on a '93 Cavalier blocks one of the bolts which must be removed in order to replace the tensioner plate.
To free up the steering pump enough to get at that bolt you'll need to removed the two 13mm bolts that attach the pump to the tensioner plate. Fortunately, the pump pulley has access holes provided on it's face to just for that purpose. Once these are out the pump can be swung neatly out of the way.

Let me understand your question a little better. . . .are you replacing the tensioner and are asking how to remove the power steering pulley so you can access the tensioner? If thats the case, I must say that power steering units dont usually come with removable pulleys. Unless your a mechanic and have the knowledge and what tools are required to remove the power steering pulley from its unit for a much more serious reason besides to move it out of your way, I dont suggest doing so. If the power steering pump pulley is in the way your going to have to move the pump out of your way. Notice to see if the pump might have a pivot point. Refer to your owners manual for removal and installation of the tensioner. Its really not that hard>

You will need a power steering pump pulley removal tool in order to remove pulley and not cause damage. an intsallation tool is needed to reinstall also. if you don't have you can go to auto zone or pep boys and get a loaner from them. hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
