Releasing Tensioning 1994 840Ci Serpentine Belt Tensioner

Releasing the Tensioning on a 1994 840Ci Serpentine Belt Tensioner. I am replacing my Waterpump. How do you remove the Tension from the double Tensioner? Or where do or where can you put the pry bar to release the Tension? The other belt (Compressor) is easy to release the Tension from beneath the car.

This might help. I think itís the tensioner you are talking about and possibly the same engine.
