I always just leave the belt tight over the pulleys and tensioner then use a 32mm service wrench and give it a whack with a 24oz. hammer. Worked on every car so far (6 and counting). By the way, you can buy the whole set of service wrenches at Harbor Freight for less than $30 when they're on sale. They are indispensable for suspension work. Good investment.
