im trying to take off the mail serpentine belt. ive got my wrench on the tensioner and move it clockwise but there is only about 1/4" of movement; not enough to get slack to pop the belt off. there appears to be a tab on the tensioner at the top and in the area where it appears to travel, its already almost to the end. thats where i only get my 1/4" before that tab hits the end of its travel. what am i doing wrong?

Nothing. My belt was on there good too. You'll need to slide it off the waterpump. Not enough travel to take it off a ribbed pulley.

Sounds like your doing it correctly. I only see about 1/4" also. But I'm pretty sure you would have to pull that belt off from around the water-pump pulley first, due to no lip on it, while holding the max clockwise position you can achieve, to have any success here.
