Question Serpentine Belt

I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire and I'm trying to change the serpentine belt on it. I went to Autozone and rented the serpentine belt tool. I found the tensioner pulley, but it seems like there's not much of anything to connect to to release the tension. Am I missing something? Please help...

Usually there's a slot where you can fit a breaker bar to release the tension.

If not, many times a wrench can be installed on the tensioner's bolt.

Thanks for the reply. I did end up finding it. It's a little slot and because it's a little crowded in the area it may be a little hard to find. I found it easier to just get a ratchet and stick that in the slot to release the tension. The serpentine belt tool was just too long and I would've had to remove some things to get to it. It was a fairly easy job and took only about 15 minutes to complete.

Thanks again!
