Insert ratchet into top left corner of the idler pulley.This will release idler tension. hope this helps. Art If you mean a 3.8L, the only one that can be released is the one near the A/C compressor. The one on top is fixed in place. It is NOT easy to do on that car like the above answer, but it really isn't hard. just use a 11/16 wrench/socket on the bolt on the pulley and pull up . easy as pie...

On the belt routing diagram under the hood (near the grille, but under the hood) you will find the location of the 'tensioner' pulley. You need to get a 15mm socket and place it on the bolt on the tensioner pulley. Then use a ratchet to put clockwise pressure on the bolt to loosen the tension on the belt. This will allow you to remove the belt from the idler pulley, remove the bolt, put on the new pulley. Now put clockwise pressure on the tensioner pulley again to put slack in the belt so you can slip it around the new idler pulley. You're done.
