on the 2.2 it's a 13mm head on the pulley bolt. You will pull it toward the front of the car to relieve the spring tension on the belt

The serpentine belt tools works if you have room and clearance.On a 2.2/2200 you might have to remove the upper motor mount bracket.Or use a 3 foot long flat steel bar on the end of the tensioner bracket and push down.Thats what I use because of the motor mount bracket being in the way.

The lack of clearance means you'll have to make something. I'll try to get a pic of what I made next time I head home

I've never had a problem using my serpentine belt tool. I'm not sure how one wouldn't have clearance...
