How to replace tension pulley and belt on a Versa 2007

Hi,

I need help in replacing the tension pulley and belt on my Nissan Versa 2007.
I'm a newbie mechanic and searched youtube videos but it is not detailed for me.
From what I have seen, the tension pulley can be either removed from:
a: passenger side by removing wheel and fender lining
b: engine top side by removing strut and engine mounts

Removing the wheel and fender lining seems a lot of work specially all those fender push pins so I'm favoring removing the engine mounts since I have done this before already. My concern is removing the T50 bolt that holds the tension pulley which seems a long bolt.
Is there enough space for the ratchet (1/2 socket or 3/8 socket or 1/4 hex T50) and the bolt to go in and out after removing the motor mounts?
Can I easily install the belt after removing the motor mounts?
Thank you.

Doug

Thank you. I have seen and reviewed this video before.
It does not show how the tension pulley got removed and put back.
The pulley bolt is very long and the space is very tight so not sure how the guy in the video was able to pull it out and bring it back in.

You'd rather pull the motor mount over removing part of the plastic wheel well liner?!? You are a better man than I Douglas!!

I have seen a good youtube video or two in regards to replacing this tension pulley.
