Default 2003 turbo power steering and ac belt tensioner

How do I get this belt tensioner bolt out? There's no room for a ratchet or any thing. barely got the pulley bolt out. Now I have a new tensioner with pulley but I have to disassemble the new tensioner/pulley in order to mount it back on the motor I don't have a vice grip to hold the tensioner tight when I loosen the pulley. also struggling with that

ha! yeah! bolt hits the frame. i remember that. annoying, isn't it?
i had that issue when i was trying to take just the pulley off.

you're removing the bolt marked 2, not the one in the center of the pulley, correct? bolt marked 2 fits out.

as for moving the tensioner, i just used my hand. it's only 35-45lbs of tension

i think a ratchet with a deep socket is the perfect length to clear the tensioner yet fit in there

Okay I got it here is what I did first removed old pulley and the Bolt and then the tensioner bolt I have to get it at an angle with a box wrench so I got the tensioner out now I lined up the new tensioner it with my fingers put the bolt in as far as I could. Then withthe new tensioner on and tightened slightly I had to remove the new pulley of the new tensioner so I can make room to further tighten the tensioner bolt and then I put the new pulley back on and done. After all said and done the noise the whole way I figured out is the alternator that's making the noise god dammit

Okay I'm going to change the alternator belt problem though I loosened both mounting bolts and the tension adjusting bolt on the alternator but the alternator isn't moving it's stuck in the same position and barely came loose any ideas how to get alternator to budge to move so I can remove the belt thank you
