we're out in the garage right now putting the car back together after replacing the camshaft and can't figure out how to remove the belt tensioner. Is there a trick to this? Any help would be much appreciated.

never done it, but I do have an Engine service manual handy if you happen to need it.

I only see 1 Bolt and 1 Nut holding the belt tensioner in place.

the tensioner has a hex on the side of it to put a socket on it.you turn it to remove the tension.then slide your belt on it.then release it.it took me awhile ti figure it out too.
