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.

Where is the tensioner for the serpentine belt on a Saturn?

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.
