One of the idler pulleys is on a spring-loaded swing arm, use a breaker
bar or ratchet in the rect hole to release belt tension, leave the belt
as it is, so you dont get confused when reinstalling
Two bolts, alt will be 'wedged' wiggle it back and forth to get it out..
the long bolt's the hardest.

I don't think my arm even has the hole. I just use a big crescent wrench or
socket on the idler pulley bolt (handle points to the driver's side), and try
scrape my arm on the fan shroud. The bolt's in tight enough to not unscrew.
About 5 seconds to get the belt off, maybe 10 to get it back on.
