Hi,my name is mike and I will do my best to assist you with your question.
Below the top engine mount is the belt tensioner it has a square cut out in the middle,you will need a belt tension tool the tool inserts into the square and pushes the tensioner down to release the tension from the belt so that it will come off of the pulleys. The tool is sold at most parts stores of If need be you can use a long screwdriver.
