04 Stratus Belt Tensioner

2004 Stratus SXT with 2.4 L DOHC, replaced alternator, need a method to move tensioner to reinstall belt. The tensioner wrenches I have seen and found don't match the model that is on the car... there is a center bolt that needs loosened to move, but no way to grab the tensioner, the bolt has a torque rating for locking it down, but nowhere to 'latch on' and turn the tensioner... there has to be a wrench or tool for it... but can't find one... anyone have any thoughts?

You normally don't need to loosen the pulley look for a way to move it to release the tension. Normally these type of tools will work for you.
You maybe able to borrow or rent from AutoZone or Advance Auto maybe O'Riley's.
