After removing the right front wheel and trying to fing the tensioner for two hours I went on to brute force. I released all the bolts holding the alternator in place and then bent the belt off from the alternator, which alowed me to replace the alternator. The tricky part was to get the belt on the new alternator but with a crowbar and a lot of force it snapped in to place. This might now be the ideal approach but it solwed the problem right now. I took it for a test spin a few minutes ago and everything seemed fine. Thax for the moralic support guys. Hopfully the new alternator dosnt have the same taste for tobbaco as the old one did.
