How to remove belt tensioner pulley?

I need to install a new belt tensioner pulley because mine is squealing pretty loud. How should I go about doing this? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!!

It's probably a reverse thread bolt.

A cheaper way is using a pole to extend your ratchet and give it a quick yank(with the belt on to keep the pulley in place). Once it's loose take off the belt and then finish taking the bolt out.

Ford_fan101 is absolutely right, its a left handed thread. I found this out the hard way and I bet many others have too.
