I am getting set to change the belts on my chevy and I found the tensioer for the AC belt, but I don't see one for the serpentine belt. I cant get the belt tension loose enough to get it off. What am I missing?

Thanks

Should be located in front of your water pump or closer to the alternator. 2inch round, with a 5/8" nut in centre. Spring loaded, you want to pull up on it to release tension on belt. Attach a long handle ratchet and use that to turn to ease up the tension.
Good luck
