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 just did my alt in my 06 6.0 E350

if you are staring at the front of the engine it is at about 730 oclock. I was able to get a breaker bar on the tensioner but couldnt get the "swing" i needed without loosening up the shroud. I did not remove the fan, just the 4 bolts that hold the shroud to the engine.

Take the time to spin all idler pulleys, etc to check for a bad bearing on one.

Replace the fuel filter while you're there, unless it is brand new.
