You need to loosen the center nut on the idler pulley, then loosen(counterclockwise) the adjusting bolt. The idler pulley should start moving downard to allow belt to come off, if it doesnt, it is has corrosion buildup. Place a piece of wood against idler pulley and tap with hammer a couple of times to free the idler pulley up- at that point continue loosening adjuster bolt until belt comes off
