2004 Dodge Neon: automatic belt tensioner..assembly..Alternator

Resolved Question:

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon 2.0 HO and need to replace the automatic belt tensioner for the AC/Power Steering pump. My tensioner is not serviceable, and must be replaced with the entire tensioner & plate assembly. From the top of the vehicle, the plate appears to connect with Upper & Mid engine mounts & run under the power steering pump, & possibly the Alternator. Can someone confirm the following replacement procedure?

1.) Remove passenger wheel for access,
2.) Drain coolant,
3.) Support engine, detach upper and middle engine mounts,
4.) Remove Power steering pump,
5.) Remove & replace plate w/ tensioner

Am I missing anything? Pictures and a copy of the official service procedures would be helful.
