Hey Mike==The tensoiner has a spring that keeps tension on the belt. Pull up on the belt and you can see which way the tensoiner has to go to remove the tension on the belt. You can generally pry it with a screw driver to get the belt off and back on. There should be a schematic on the fan shroud but if it isn't there draw a picture before you start. Don't rely on memory. GoodluckJoe
