Default 2002 Camry serpentine belt replacement

I have a 4 cyclinder needing a drive belt replacement. I noted the
tensioner has a Torex bolt on it and there is a 3/4 (metic equivalent)
inch bolt just above and to the right of it. I didn't note any thing that
needs to be loosened before removal. Is that correct? The 3/4" bolt
looks like it's at the pivit point. I saw tensioner tools in the auto
store but could I use a regular socket with a cheater bar on it? Should I
just crank on that bolt?

if you crank the bolt on way it increases the tension, the other way
causes the pulley to rotate loosening the belt for removal

Yes, but he is talking about the serpentine belt that drives alternator, ps
pump, etc.

The 02 generation has an automatic belt tensioner (finally after all
these years!). You slowly turn the tensioner to remove the tension and
take off the belt. Don't know if the space allows for a breaker bar and
socket, but you maybe able to get a free loaner from AutoZone if they
have it.
