Tension pulley removal

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2L; Total Mileage: 56500; Transmission: Tiptronic;

Can you provide direction on how to remove the tensioner pulley? I was changing the rib belt and turn the bolt the wrong way (counter-clockwise) and the bolt is not holding on to the pulley roller tight anymore.I managed to remove the belt but the tensioner assembly won't come off (it's tight on the engine block). Do I need to rock it back and forth more to remove it? Thanks in advance!
