Drue31, There are tools required to remove the fan, a thin 36mm open end and a holding tool for the water pump pulley and it is a left hand thread so turn to the right to loosen, then you can get a better shot at the belts. The tensioner can be unloaded by popping off the plastic caps from the center of the tensioner pulley and using a Torx driver, turn it to the right to compress the tensioner. The bolt could also have a 16mm hex head, it depends on the range of production.
