Default Tool to replace Serpentine Belt and Release Spring Tension

I want to replace the Serpentine Belt in my 2000 Marquis.

Do I need to buy a special tool to release the tension pulley, or is their something else that I could use, like a Breaker Bar?

What would you suggest? If a Breaker Bar, what specifications would you suggest?

Thanks.

I think you put a socket on the tenioner and pull to the left (your left) It only has
about 30-40 P.S.I. on the belt. Large ratchet aught to do fine
