You should unbolt the tensioner and compress it in a vice and put a pin of some sort in the hole to keep it down. Then push the pulley inwards to tighten the belt and then tighten the bolt. After that is all done bolt the tensioner back in and make sure the timing is set and then pull the pin out and there you go. It is a self tensioner so it will be tight and good to go. If any more help just send me a pm

thanks, yeah i have a new tensioner and its already compressed.
the manual says to turn the tensioner pulley with their special tool to 31 in/lbs which i dont have, i just wanted to make sure it was ok to twist by hand.

fsm-
15.Loosen the tensioner pulley lock bolt.
16.Turn the torque wrench attached to the special tool
MD998767 counterclockwise until the slack in the timing belt
is taken up.
17.Turn the torque wrench clockwise from the position of step
16. until the torque wrench reading becomes 3.5 N⋅m (31 inlb),
then tighten the tensioner pulley lock bolt.
