Serpentine Belt on 1995 Lexus GS300

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
In trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 1995 lexus GS300 I've come across a problem. I can't get it to fit.

Here's what I've tried: Loosening the tensioner bolt, this didn't seem to make any difference at all. There only appears to be one slide bolt behind the power steering pulley, do I need to loosen this in order to slip the belt on properly?

The serpentine belt slips on only one way by pulling the belt tensioner backwards, nothing should be loose, everything should be nice and tight. There is a diagram on the inside of the hood, follow those steps to install the belt.
