It is recommended that the tensioner and idler pulleys be changed at the same time as the timing belt.

There is one 10mm bolt holding the tensioner pulley in place

There is one 15mm bolt holding the idler pulley in place

The belt should slide off

This is the hole where the tensioner pulley's tab should slide into on reassembly

With the timing belt off, you should be able to freely spin the camshaft sprockets without rotating the camshafts while the timing bar is in place

With the timing belt removed never rotate the crankshaft or camshafts independently of one another. Doing so could result in permanent engine damage
