Hello and  welcome5

Can't help you with removal of tensioner but have you checked the other driven pulleys like water pump, alternator, and aircon for roughness as these particularly the aircon can cause the belt to squeal.

Hi . I had same problem on my previous Galaxy . Noise comes from dry bearing . Its loosing Greece because of rain water and salt on roads  . I bought that tensioner pulley on its own on ebay for about £ 20 . Very easy to replace and make sure you have under tray fitted otherwise pulley will get noisy again (because of its silly location ) . Hope this helps  :)
