Question HELP REPLACING SERPENTINE BELT TENSIONER

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to remove the Serpentine Belt Tensioner on my 2.0ltr 2000 PT Cruiser!!
The weird shaped bolt spins round and round but doesnt loosen.

Any help on this subject would be much appreciated

Automatic Tensioner Replacement:
Remove the power steering/air conditioning compressor drivebelt
Unscrew the tensioner mounting bolt and remove the tensioner
If necessary, the tensioner pulley can be replaced individually. To do so, mount the tensioner in a vise and unscrew the pulley bolt. install the new pulley and tighten the bolt .
Probably didnt help you whatsoever, but i just typed up what Haynes says.

Thanks Freezinghot.
The mounting bolt is what Im having issues with.
No matter how much I turn it, its not loosening the tensioner
Clockwise, counter clockwise, it doesnt get tighter either.
But it doesnt feel like the thread has gone.
