and what is the year, engine and model of your dodge
and which tensioner? serp belt or timing chain?
13 mm headed bolt in the center and the entire assembly will come out, are you in a highly rust prone area?
if you rounded the bolt a 1/2 (which is a hair smaller than 13mm) tapped on with a hammer will USUALLY release the bolt
yes lefty loosy, are you using a 3/8 drive 6 POINT the area gets corroded and is very tight.
I use a 3/8 impact gun to loosen the bolt never had an issue, BUT I do have issues if I am using a hand wrench and socket, ESPECIALLY one that is too deep or a 1/2 inch drive one.
you STILL haven't said if your in the rust belt or not,
I live and work in Connecticut we have issues with corrosion
so corrosion shouldn't be an issue but you haven't answered what type of socket 6 or 12 point, 1/2 or 3/8 drive , you may need to use an air tool if you can't break it free
