I'm trying to replace both engine belts, as one has shredded off (serpentine) and the v-belt to the P/S unit is in front of the Serpentine belt. How do you get the idler pulley loose to remove the drive belt to the P/S unit? It's not a spring loaded idler pulley as I'm used to. Thanks in advance

If I remeber correctly there is a threaded rod between the pump and the block/mount. You will have to thread the locking nut down to relieve tension on the belt
