I know I must be missing something obvious, but how is the belt removed? Every video / photo I have seen is showing a tension bolt near the alternator. But on my 2011 1.6L, there is no bolt. I have even shelled out to Tradebit for a manual. That manual also shows a bolt. Can someone throw me a bone and tell me how to de-tension the belt!

Thanks in advance!

Thank you. I never even thought of a tension pulley. I could not see it from up on top, but once I got underneath (and knew what I was looking for), it was a clear as day. I am posting diagram. The pulley is 25290A on the diagram. It is smooth pulley closest to the passenger compartment (there are two smooth pulleys).
