    Nah, don't talk to him, he's a right dodgy so & so

    There's no need to drop the engine, you just need a good quality 6 sided 16mm socket and a decent ratchet to get the tensioner bracket off.

    Just be aware you're losing the skin off some of your knuckles doing it

    What about the torque bolt inside the nut???

    You need a trimmed down 7mm allen key to undo that and you use a 22mm spanner to add or remove tension to the whole mechanism

    But if you're removing the whole bracket just cut the belt off & undo that bolt later on for when you're refitiing the belt
