Removing Tensioner Pulley?

How do you? I have the first piece off. I just have to get the other piece. I don't know the names of it so excuse me. And what tool do I use?

Pulley is not available as separate part. Needs to be replaced along with tensioner.

The following picture should help you in understanding how to remove the tension on the tensioner.

Yeah I meant the tensioner as well. And as for the picture that is the part im about to order. I think the tool I need for the one I have on now is a star wrench or something like that. I am guess at the name.

If you're talking about the bolts that hold the tensioner to the engine, those are External Torx. You can buy a good set of them at Sears in the Lisle brand for under $20 with a nifty rubberized holder so they don't rattle around in your toolbox. MB uses lots of those under the hood, so buying the set is worth it.
