The hex head looking bolt DOES NOT GET TURNED AT ALL...The tensioner is spring loaded...FIND the CORRECT bolt to release the spring pressure.
My daughter has a 1995 Mustang (3.8,v6) the spring loaded belt tensioner has a square hole that should fit to a 3/8 ratchet or extension . Then just attach to a breaker bar and relieve tension ,it helps to have someone you trust hold the breaker bar while you change the belt. Most likely though the tensioner can be locked up due to corrosion inside the bushing /bearing area. In that case buy a new tensioner before performing the belt change. Napa by me has the tensioner for about $30.
The belt tensioner is located at the bottom of the power steering pump looking at it from the front the tensioner is on the bottom left. you could always loosen the alternator up a little. My 1997 with a 4.0 does not have a tensioner pulley, and I believe the 99s are the same. the alternator is the tensioner. Remove one of the bolts and it will swivel in and you can get the belt off
The belt tensioner is located below and in front of the power steering pump. It is accessed easiest by taking off the passenger front tire, taking the plastic panels out and looking just in front of and above the alternator. Turn it clockwise to release tension on the belt, NEVER turn it counter clockwise as this will loosen the bolt that holds the pulley on the tensioner and will cause very bad things if it flys off while you are driving on the freeway...personal experience. The tensioner is held on by (2) 10mm bolts, and you will have to remove the pulley to get to them, just make sure you tighten the bejeezus out of the pulley bolt.
Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner. This square hole is for a 3/8 inch drive socket or pull handle to release the tension off the serpentine belt Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan.
