TO REMOVE THE TENSIONER YOU HAVE TO FIRST TAKE OFF THE BELT...

ITS DONE BY TURNING THE TENSIONER IN THE DIRECTION THAT WILL CREATE

A LOSENESS IN THE BELT. tHERE MAY BE A SQUARE HOLE ON THE

TENSIONER, A 3/8 DRIVE RATCHET GOES DIRECTLY INTO THAT SLOT AND THE

BAR OF THE RATCHET IS THE LEVERAGE U NEED TO TURN IT IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION...OR U HAVE TO PUT THE RIGHT SIZE WRENCH ON THE GIVEN

SLOT OR END POINT OF SAID TENSIONER...TO TAKE IT OFF U MIGHT HAVE

TO LIFT THE ENGINE SLIGHTLY BY USING A JACK WITH SOME WOOD UNDER

THE OIL PAN OR U CAN ALLOW THE ENGINE TO DROP BY REMOVING THE MOTOR

MOUNT GIVING U THE ACCESS OR SPACE THAT U NEED TO GET THE BOLT FROM

THE MIDDLE OF THE TENSIONER OUT...MAKE SURE U MATCH UP THE CORRECT

TENSIONER B4 U TAKE IT OFF...I'VE SEEN PEOPLE DRILL A HOLE TO GET

TO THE BOLT...THIS A GENERAL ANSWER THAT WILL COVER DIFFERENT CARS

AND NOT JUST THE 3.1
