I need to remove the tension pulley for the fan belt and replace it as the bearing is bad. Even the spring seems to be stuck as a could not get the tension off
to remove the belt. The hole unit might need to be replaced. Thanks

If the tensioner wont release, then the entire unit will need to be repalced. Be sure you arent working on an idler pulley, they look just like the wheel on the tensioner but are solid mounted. Sometimes the threads are the opposite on the tensioner wheels (left tightens, right loosens). But again if the tensioner is stuck, replace it before it leaves you stuck somewhere
