replacing belts...how to release tension

'95 D-90 with AC

not the kind I'm feeling after replacing the master/slave/flex hose kind...WAB; but the belt tensioners. Trying to replace all 3 belts; alternator serp straight forward...'95 classic has a nut to wrench...not the D-90

Both are loosened from the bottom / underneath using a 13mm socket on a long extension. The ac tension can also be reached with a wrench from the top.

Here's a pic of the ac tensioner. Water pump tensioner looks the same only lower down by the crankshaft pulley.
