How do you pully releaves the tension on a 2001 Pontiac sunfire to put on the 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.
