A/C COMPRESSOR DRIVE BELT CHANGE

1998 Dodge Intrepid

Air Conditioning problem
1998 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 98000 miles

I would like to replace the compressor belt. The serpentine belt has already been removed, but I cannot see how to tighten/loosen the compressor belt tension. Coult it be that the a/c clutch pulley must be removed? The harmonic balancer on the engine (3.2) has a " dual" pulley. The serpentine belt is driven by the front section and the compressor belt is all by itself, using the rear pulley. I cannot see any adjustment to loosen the a/c belt?
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Same as the other belt is a
has an adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley
loosen the cnter nut then release the bolt on the side of it
