Are you trying to remove the whole tensioner or the pulley on the tensioner.

Reply to high tech's Post: i am trying to emove the whole assembly, but if the pulley is easier to remove then the whole assembly then i would do that. I have the whole assembly, so i would rather replace the whole thing.

I believe the bolt takes a 15mm or 13mm and the direction to change are below.

Removal Procedure
1. Remove the drive belt.
2. Remove engine mount strut.
