on my Saturn the tensioner was below ac compressor closer to center of engine you put wrench on bolt in center and turn clockwise and will move to loosen tension and will have to hold it there will removing or installing belt
Give the belt a couple of quick, short tugs to relieve the tension. The belt is most likely jammed. Then if it releases, pull it out slowly. If you pull the belt out too fast, it will often lock up. My mistake, I thought seat belt. The pulley that doesn't connect to anything like the crank or alternator is the tension pulley. It is spring loaded. Some have a place for a ratchet to go or you pry against the housing or the pulley itself as long as you don't pinch the belt. Relieve the tension and slip the belt off of another pulley and release the tension.
If it is a drive belt and not a serpentine belt is has no tensioner. You manually adjust the tension by normally adjusting tension by moving the alternator. Loosen to bolts holding the alternator in place and then adjust the tension. Tighten the bolts when the tension is right. If it is serpentine belt if you follow the belt around the the engine you will see the tensioner.
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.

The tensioner maintains proper tension on the serpentine belt. Too much tension can cause premature failure of the belt, water pump, AC compressor, alternator, power steering... Too little tension can cause belt slipping, resulting in premature belt failure and poor operation of the water pump, AC compressor, alternator... AND when those pulleys are slipping, they generate a lot of heat which can cause premature failure of the water pump... you get the idea.
Yep It has one, If your question is how to replace it, there is a tensioner at the top between the powersteering pump and altinator that needs to be rrelieved of tension . Use a 1/2'drive breaker bar which fits into the square hole in the tensioner and push towards the direction that releases tension. Remove belt. There should be a sticker under the hood to assist in routing the new belt.
