Default How to loosen belt tension on 2.4L 4 cyl

Trying to change the belts on my 2005 Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder, I cannot find any info anywhere on how to loosen the belt tension. I loosened a bolt that another site claimed to be the one to loosen the tension, this turned out to be the nut on the back side of the tensioner pulley bolt.
Now, the tensioner pulley is out of place, on an angle, and there is still tension on the belt. How do you loosen the tension on this engine?

Please help.

For the A/C -- Alternator belt ??

Turn the adjuster bolt with a 14mm socket or wrench.. Remove the fan assembly on passenger side, it'll open up your workspace a good bit.
