How do you release serpentine belt tension on 2000 Sonata?

The tensioner does not need removing. It just needs to be swung out (clockwise) of the way to reduce the tension on the belt so the belt can slip over the pulleys. The tensioner has a slot, towards its end, for a 3/8 drive in it. Place the drive into that slot and you get the leverage to overcome the tension in the spring.

What is centrifugal tension?

As with any other rotational system in a belt drive during rotation, the belt is subjected to centrifugal force. Due to the centrifugal force the belt is thrown outward from the grooves of the pulley and causes additional tensioning of the belt. The effect of centrifugal tension is that it reduces the pretension of the belt and hence increases belt slip.
