On the left (passsanger) side of hte motor there is a tensioner. it will have a square drive half inch hole in it that you can put a half inch wratchet in to loosen the belt up. the tensioner will probably have two individual pulleys on it......Marc

look for one that has two pulleys connected by a piece of aluminum. on that piece of aluminum there is a square hole for your half inch wratchet......

i think its the only set of idlers on the passanger side of the motor......

The only thing on the passenger side of the motor that could be a tensioner has a #50 torx bolt holding the tensioner to the motor and a 15mm bolt on the tensioner pulley.

that is the right area, is there a square thing on the one that has the "arm"....if not, use a 15mm socket on the bolt for the pulley....

Thank you Marc, I tried cranking on the 15mm pulley bolt, but it didn't seem like it wanted to move. Should I loosen up the torx bolt on the tensioner and then crank on the 15mm pulley bolt. I don't see anything that could accept a 1/2 " drive.

loosening the torx wont help........if there is no half inch drive slot, then just pry harder on the 15.....there is quite a bit of spring tension so you may not have been prying hard enough......i use a large breaker bar when i loosen tensioners.....
