lol, this is exactly how I replaced my OEM tensioner. I cut the wrench, and zip tied it so that It wouldn't drop down if it slipped. Major pain in the ass.

Serious note here, loosen the bolt that is furthest away from you first! if you try to keep both sides even the bolt furthest away continues to be a pain in the ass to remove. So again, loosen the bolt furthest away (like in the picture) first. The bolt that is closest is easy because you can fit a socket on it and have room.

In the future if I have to do similar, I'll use some JB Weld to make a more permanent tool.
