There is a square hole that you stick a half inch braker bar into and then rotate counter clockwise about 80 degrees to release tension on the belt. Super easy. Its not in the center of the pulley, but about 1 1/2 - 2 inches up the tensioner arm.

Hey man these are great cars to learn how to fix. I'm 21 and have done a great deal of work to my car and learned a lot. I was 18 when I first got it. If you need any help let me know

next time just keep working at it...a replacement pulley will run you under $20 at any autoparts store and it's a quick swap. at least you tried before going to a shop :good:

what you priced was the assembly i can say with 99.9% certainty...the pulley by itself would be under $20
