Hello I will help,

Do you have the arm exposed and can you turn the pulley bolt? What happens when you do? Which direction are you turning the bolt?

Are you on the tensioner down by the crank pulley or are you trying to move the idler up by the alternator?

Can you get your 1/2" square drive in the square recess in the arm?
