The serpentine belt tension is not adjustable. It is set by a spring loaded idler pully. "Idler" just means that it is not used to drive anything. It is spring loaded to tension the belt and control belt position. The bracket for the idler pully has a square hole in it that is used to compress the spring during belt installation or removal. You can put a 1/2" drive ratchet or breaker bar in the square opening and apply pressure against the spring to remove the old belt or install a new one. Ratchets and breaker bars are normally used with a socket to loosen nuts, but no socket is required to use them in the idler pully bracket.
