Please help me. 2001 E 220 CDI (W210?) Drive belt has broken. I have new one but cannot see how tensioner works. It has a 17mm bolt on the front of the tensioner. Tensioner will move right and left but how does it tighten?

Its spung loaded, it should have spines on it which a 17 mm socket fits on and then you move the rachet/spanner clockwise to move it!
