SERPENTINE BELT

2004 Ford Explorer

Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles

How do I loosen the belt tensioner on the serpentine belt. I've loosened the bolt attached to the tensioner pulley but it still won't budge. I tried a rocker arm to spring in loose and it still won't budge?

IT should pivit. I believe on the explorer, you can place a wrench on the bolt attaching the pulley and pivot it from that point. Here is a picture.

Try that and let me know if it helps.
