If you can find a spot to put the bar/wrench and can push down while still having access to the belt it will be easier than if you can only get in a position which forces you to pull the bar towards you or whatever. Hard to explain but just think leverage.
Yeah, I got mine loose no problem with a smallish (18 inch) 1/2 drive breaker. It just didnít take nearly as much effort as I was expecting. The car is about to spend a week at the dealer to have the four safety recalls fixed anyways. Iíll prob just go ahead and order a tensioner while itís down.
