Look at the belt and find the tensioner. You have to remove the tension from the belt in order to remove it. Different tensioners have different ways of removing the tension. On some there is a hole in the end that you insert a ratchet in and pry to remove tension. On others you just pry the idler one way or another to remove tension. If you look carefully you will figure this out. Be sure and check the idler and make sure it is in good condition. If it is loose or rolls with a noise, now is a good time to replace it.

Using a 15mm wrench, turn the bolt in the center of the idler pulley clockwise to relieve tension and remove the belt.

If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley. Pry the idler back and remove the belt.If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.

If you just want it looser...its factory set....To remove it, locate the tension pulley and us a open face wrench to take off the tension...belt will come right off.

First you need a breaker bar and 19mm socket to fit the "tension bolt". Turn tension bolt clockwise to release tension in order to remove the serpentine belt.
