Ok it is the one with grooves on it. Should be mounted to a bracket that has a square hole the size of a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar. Push the breaker bar towards the driver side and that should loosen up your belt.

Ok no luck, i was turning the right pulley the first time, but the bolt just spins, loosening or tightening it just spins easy? Any suggestions?

its not a bolt. like bigcountry said, you take a 1/2 drive and put the end in it. its in the middle of the one that has 2 pullies on the mount.
