Hose should connect to a plastic black line that runs along the top of the firewall.

Tensioner: Get out a 1/4 drive socket set and stick an extension bar in there. Pull/push the socket handle to release the belt. Kind of hard to explain, but you will see what I mean. It's as if you are undoing a bolt but instead of a socket on the end, it's a tensioner that moves to the left.
