Angry Broken Tension Pully!!

My car a 1991 Chevy Corsica LT 3.1L V6 blew its alternator,
I bought a new one, when I put a breaker bar on the tension pully for the serpentine belt, it moved about 2 inches then BROKE IN HALF, so now I have to replace that also. I could not get a rachet wrench in on it (tight space), so how do I change it?? I thought about taking the wheel off then the splash guard, but I really have no idea. Any help or tips will be more than welcome!!
Thanks!!

If I remember correctly, there is a nut on the back that can be accessed from the underside of the back of the engine. I think it's held on by one bolt.

hi there. i have a '95 grand am 3.1 v6. i replaced my tentioner a couple years ago and went through same problem. there may be a special tool for the job but, what i did was take off right wheel and splashsheild and drilled hole big enough to fit rachet extension through metal wheelwell. start out with a smaller size bit and work it open about 3/4 of an inch. AND MAKE SURE NO FEUL LINES ARE IN THE WAY! also, make sure where you drill is in alignment to tentioner bolt. hope this helps, doug

NO, NO NO

Don't drill any holes in your car. I believe this is a 1 bolt tensioner nutted from the rear. If not, you can access it from the front side. You don't have to drill holes.

Check autolibrary.org for a diagram or R&R procedure. Don't drill holes
