Take off pulley then locate Torx or allen bolt in center of the tensioner itself. Remove that bolt and tensioner comes out.

pretty simple
thanks ill have to give it another look. It just seemed like it would be more difficult.
I know where the 15mm bolt is, take this off, and then an allen head under?
thanks again

I don't think you even need to take the pulley off, when I did it I had lots of room though... radiator, and fan were out.

Mine was a torx to remove the tensioner. I forget what size it was???
