Each belt is held in position and with tensoion by a pivot, tensioner and adjusting bolt. You need to release them to loosen the belt tension. For Alternator, loosen the bolt on the bracket and adjuster and pull hard at belt to loosen tension.
For A/C and power steering, the adjuster is either in between power steering pump and A/c compressor or at lower part of engine.
