So all i do is take the ratchet to it with the socket, and turn counterclockwise. By turning this direction, will it then loosen the belt?

Like he said, no socket... just use the square end of the drive...
Just think of the tensioner as a spring loaded lever, your moving it to release the "tension" that's on the belt. DO NOT take the tensioner off. When you put the belt back on, you'll move it the same way again.... to relieve the tension, and allow the belt to go on. When you have the belt where you want it, release the tensioner, and it will pivot back to it's original location... putting tension back on the belt.
If you still don't understand, ask more .... it's no biggy. I think you'll get the idea real quick when you see it.
Oh, .... and don't let your hand come off the ratchet while your holding the tensioner back... and if you do... DUCK.. REALLY REALLY FAST! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
