Smile How to replace serpentine belt on 2001 Santa Fe 2.7 V6

I need to replace the serpentine belt on my wife's 2001 Santa Fe V6 but I can not seem to figure out how to get the tensioner off. Is there someone who can assist me with this procedure?
Thanks in advance.

Propflux01 is an unknown quantity at this point
There are two bolts that hold the tensioner on. They are somewhat long. Just unscrew them and remove tensioner.They are localed just to the left of the tensioner pulley (as your looking at the pulley from the passenger fender). Look closely when you remove it so you can see how the belt is routed, so install will be easy.

A Shovel, and a 55-Gallon drum, can solve many of life's little "irritants"..
