Belt tensioner question on 606

I need to change the tensioner shock on my 98 W210. My question is how do you take the tension off the spring to remove the bolt that anchors it? I know to put the lug wrench in the hole and apply pressure but it will not move until that bolt is all the way out. Am I just applying pressure so I can get the bolt out or for another reason?
