2008 VUE 3.5L
Default Alternator Replacement 2008 Vue XE 3.5L

I am hoping someone can give me some direction on the tensioner for a friend's 08 VUE XE 3.5L. I am having trouble finding any information for this particular engine. I am trying to replace the alternator & need to confirm if the tension is relieved by wrenching clockwise or counter-clockwise? It appears it should be CW but I got the tool from auto zone and going CW but unlike other tensioners I've worked w/, its not moving & relieving the tension. I don't want to snap the bolt either. I've never worked on a Saturn so I want to make sure the bolt doesn't need to be loosened by wrenching CCW in order for the tensioner to move. Any & all help would be appreciated!
