SERPENTINE BELT TENSIONER PROBLEM

2003 Volkswagen Golf

I have a vw golf mk 4 1.6 16v
to get the fan belt off the manual says to turn the tensioner bolt clockwise but when I try to turn it the nut and bold both turn together and the tensioner dosnt move. Do you have any idea why this is happening

Tap on the tensionier with a hammar to see if it is gulded in place.

I can move it slightly with my hand but cant get the leaverage to pull it right back. The bolt im supposed to turn it with using a spanner just turns and turns

Do you have any access to tighten it?
