Accessory belt tensioner won't come out - it's unbolted but I'm stuck trying to maneuver it free. Tried moving up/down/left/right. Tried spinning, twisting, and cussing. I'm about to remove the passenger side engine mount to raise the engine to see if that helps. Before I do that...any tips?

This is the T6, so not much space.

I've searched...but nothing comes up for this issue.

TIA all...

Ok, answering my own post, the big flange on the balancer has to come off. (It'd have had to come off anyway, but I had cut the old belt off, and hadn't gotten to it yet). The tensioner had to be wiggled and jiggled toward the front of the car, down through the bottom, reaching behind the partially removed fender liner. It was stupid.

Getting the new one in will be a true PITA. At least I know the old one was bad.
