thanks but there is no square hole on it/ i have a 2001 with a 3.0. on the tensioner there is just a small bolt in the middle. looks like about 3/8. i don't get it. i have done the belt on my f 150 and i just put a big socket on it. and in the oldsmobile it used the 3/8 ratchet deal but this one is different
