Belt tensioner

is the a 4 cyl engine? If so, the pully the belt runs under, that's right in the top middle is the tensioner..If memory serves, a 15mm wrench to the pully's center bolt, lift up, counterclock wise, and remove the belt from the alternator. Keep in mind, once the belt is off, the tensioner is going to move further back clock wise than where you started, so watch your finger!!
