How do you replace idler pulley 1996 ranger 3.0?

The bolt on the idler pull loosens the normal direction, lefty loosey on the ford ranger 3.0 engine. If you look lower, you'll notice the tension pulley. You can tell it's the tension pulley by the pivoter arm that it's bolted to. Take the proper size wrench or socket, and turn clockwise as if you were to tighten it. It takes a little bit of force, but the whole arm assembly should turn down taking tension off the belt. You can then slide the serpentine off of the idler pulley and remove the pulley.
