    Hi All. I'm no pro. I am learning as I go. I need to replace the timing belt tensioner pulley on my 93 Ranger 2.3L. I have everything off and I am trying to release the tension on the spring so i can get the belt off. I have not been successful. Everyone talks about how easy it is to take off the belt, so I'm certain I'm missing something basic. I saw a Youtube where a guy made a tool out of a pipe to do this. I asked about a tool at the autoparts store but they have no idea what I'm talking about. Any advice would be appreciated. Image of tensioner spring attached.
