There is a bolt on the tensioner. Put your wrench on there and pull it back; the belt should slide off. Replace the tensioner while you in there. Theres a good chance the tensioner is what was making the noise you were looking for. Had my brother known that his car would still be going, but the motor in it locked up a few weeks ago when the tensioner gave and the pistons slapped the valves. Good luck!

Welcome to the site!

The tensioner doesn't work like that. There's two bolts holding the hydraulic tensioner on. Remove them and the tensioner falls out. Then you can move the tensioner pulley and give slack on the belt. Before you do this however, you must rotate the engine so that the mark on the crankshaft sprocket lines up with the TDC mark. AT this point, your camshaft sprockets' marks should be within the two marks on the engine.

Hammer! I assume your radiator fan is out of the way? Is your radiator off? If it is, then you have enough room to tap on the pulley with small hammer. The thing is you only need tap in by a very little bit before the thread on the bolt will engage. You could try to find longer bolts that will do this. I did. But I couldn't find anything. Tapping it with a hammer worked great however... If your radiator is still in there, then I'm not sure what's the best way because you won't have enough place to swing a hamemr.
