Default 2.0 SOHC belt tensioner removal(Focus)

I know this isn't a Ranger but it is a Ford and hopefully somebody can help.

The car is a 2000 Ford Focus with 2.0 SOHC

The belt tensioner on my wife's car seized up on her way home today and shredded the belt. I leave for a TDY in 4 days so her dad is rushing the parts over. But I'm still not sure if they'll be here in time. MO to Italy in 4 days

Anyway, I got the remains of the old belt off and I'm trying to get a head start by pulling the belt tensioner off but I have no clue how to get it off.

The tensioner looks just like this


There are no visible bolts to remove it, I'm absolutely clueless as to how to get this thing off.

I've tried searching youtube, google, and a Focus website with no luck. All the tensioners I see have two bolts to remove, not this one.

Any help would be great.

I'm dumb.

After I stared at it long enough I figured it out. The bolt holding the tensioner in is on the BACK side and you cant see it because the exhaust manifold heat shield is in the way.
