Hello, and thanks for your question, my name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help.

Remove the right front wheel and splash shield, then put a 3/8 extension and a ratchet into the tensioner. Aplly force clockwise until the belt tensioner bottoms out and then the belt can be removed. Here is a diagram of the tensioner and operation. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.

Are we talking about the timing belt tensioner of the drive belt tensioner?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The belt tensioner that the serpentine belt goes around. Looks like one bolt but I'm not positive. I busted the assembly trying to put belt back on.
Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Ok, yes there is one bolt in the center and other bolt on the side of it.

Expert:  Chris replied 4 months ago.

Maybe you are talking about the idler pulley and not the tensioner.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Any idea what size the bolts are?
Expert:  Chris replied 4 months ago.

They should be either 13mm or 15 mm heads. Probably an 8mm diameter bolt
