The belt tensioner is usually located towards the top of the motor and is spring loaded. Sometimes there is a square slot in the middle of the tensioner wheel. this is for a half inch pry bar to fit into. push on the tensioner so that it loosenes the belt and then remove it. The belt only goes on one way so locate the diagram in the engine compartment and make sure you know how the belt is routed before you remove it.If a half inch breaker bar will not fit , then you might need a belt tensioner tool which is available at most part stores.

Did you install a new bushing with the tensioner? There is a bulletin that talks about brass powder on the old tensioner. If there is, install bushing no#JF01-12-754. It sounds like you put new timing belt tensioner and belt, but without the spacer, it could cause problems.
