When the tensioner pulley is frozen and u need to change the belt the only possible thing you can do is cut the old belt and replace the belt tensioner pulley, theres no other possible method.
I just replaced mine because the automatic tensioner pully locked up (which from what I've found online was actually recalled though since I got mine used I was never informed) & melted the pulley & belt. The tensioner was about $90 & belt was about $40. All in all it took about 2hrs to replace both parts & get it up & running again. Good Luck!
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 tensioner has an arrow on it, indicating the direction it needs to be pulled to allow the installation of the belt. The pulling is accomplished by putting a standard 3/8" ratchet driver into the square hole, and putting hand pressure on the handle of the wrench. The square hole is in the middle of the tensioner, and you just pop your wrench into it like its a socket. Use a long driver, so its easier to overcome the tensioner spring.
It depends on the engine. The 2.4L is easy. Insert a 6mm Allen key into tensioner ,insert a 3mm Allen key, long side, into the small hole and turn the 6mm counterclockwise until the 3mm slides in.It will then be locked into place. To tighten the tensioner just turn the 6mm clockwise. The 2.0L has a hydraulic tensioner which needs to be removed and the pin depressed (sometimes in a vice).Then insert a 5/64in. Allen key throughthe hole to keep it depressed. reinstall tensioner and remove Allen key.Tension is correct when the pin can be pushed in and out easily. The V6 requires a special tool.
Serpentine belts don't just break. There is probably an accessory that is locked up such as the alternator or a idler pulley. Check each pulley that the belts contacts and make necessary repairs before installing a new belt. Once you have done that just start the engine back up as you normally would.
I am just guessing; but, check the serpentine or drive belt to see if it has broken; or, in the case I encountered, the tensioner broke off, leaving the belt to flop off. It was an automatic; but, when it happened the power steering went out; and, eventually most of the power options (lights, wipers, etc.) stopped working once the batter ran out of juice. Once the battery died, the shifter locked until it was jumped and the battery had some time to get some juice.
