You should have a spring loaded idler pulley. Depending on which engine you have, you either put a wrench on it and lift up, or some of them have a -inch square hole where you can insert a breaker bar and pull back on the idler to release the belt tensioner. Once you pull it back, slip the belt off of the alternator pulley and you can (slowly) release the tensioner.
