A 3/8 ratchet will fit into the little square hole on the pulley. Turn clockwise and you`ll relieve the tension.

Insert a 3/8 extention (just the extension, not a socket) from a 3/8 rachet into the small hole at the top of the tensioner, and push downward on the handle. The tensioner will turn clockwise and release the tension enough to put the belt back on.
