This might sound crazy, but I am having issues getting the serpentine tensioner assembly off. I removed both outer 10 mm bolts and it won't budge, the bolt in the center of the spring loaded arm spins the same in either direction. Do I have to pry this mother off, or does that center bolt need to come out? If it does then mine is stripped. Every time I pry on stuff something breaks, so before I break something can someone give me their input? Thanks guys. 2002 TL-S

ok nevermind, I answered my own question, center bolt was not stripped, its an 8mm, I added a little more light to the situation and realized that a 10 mm socket fits in the hole perfect and feels like its turning the bolt, but its actually just turning with some resistance from the outer edge of the bore. once i pulled the 8mm the tensioner dropped right off.
