Serpentine belt?

Serpentine belt
How do I release the tension on the serpentine belt on a '98 5.0 L? Need to change the alternator.

Thx,
David

there is a spring loaded tensioner on the drivers side with a 1/4in ratchet drive in it just slot a ratchet into that and unload the belt no probs!

actually its 3/8" but yeah thats the go. make sure the end of the ratchet or extension goes all the way into the hole or it may slip.
