Belt tensioner location on 6.0 van?

I am still harboring the fantasy that I will not have to pull the shroud and fan in order to remove the alternator. I can see the little tensioner lock from underneath, but I can't figure out where to pull on the belt in order to engage it.

Also cannot see which pulley is the tensioner without pulling the fan and shroud.

Tips appreciated...

I have no clue about the van differences, i do know the 6.0s use a 1/2" socket drive on the front of the tensioner without removing shroud. Sorry if this is no help at all.

Thanks - yeah, I know I'm looking for a 1/2 inch hole on one of the pulleys. However, it's so tight in there that you can't see the fronts of many of the pulleys. If I knew which one it was, I could maybe get an extension in there by feel between the fan blades and then put a breaker bar in it and loosen it up. Without knowing which one, though, it's pretty hard to figure out what I'm trying to accomplish.

On my 6.0 I just grab the belt and pull as hard as I can, and right below the alt, you can see a little tab...flip that tab and it will hold the belt for ya...

No - single alternator up on top passenger side. Need to get it out of there so I can pull the intake and replace the oil cooler.

Just to the left of ur arrow, you can see the little tab sticking out...if you pull the belt up at the alt, you can flip that tab and it will hold the belt for y'all.that's how I replaced, my last two alt...
