replacing alternator...a quick question.

hey guys im replacing the alternator in my 2003 4.0L and i am wondering what is the best way to hold the tensioner back so i can take the belt off? I was looking at it and there isnt much room down there. So what are your guys' best ways to do this?

Use a breaker bar... thats what I do... there should be a square hole in the middle of the tensioner... but the bar in there and push down.. having an extra set of hands helps too
