You may want to give these a read / watch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z0C...PghmR&index=15 - This is in italian and its for a timing belt change, but you see how they refit the drive belt. If you youtube search timing belt changes for grande punto's and fiat puntos , as removing the aux belt is part of the process you may get a better understanding of removing tensioner.

Hope it helps. If you need more help i just remembered I still have my older tensioner so can do a video of how it works out the car, but currently just going into work so will have to be tomorrow now.

thanks @everson38, i managed to get my aux belt tensioner removed in the end! as i mentioned in my DM, i couldn't get a hex bit and socket in there but i went and bought some hex keys and that did the trick with a 'cheater bar' on the end.

had some trouble with one of the lower engine mount bolts too but got there in the end.

now onto replacing the timing belt!
