Advice fitting belt on 308d (uk)

I am having problems replacing the belt. I have found what seems to be a tensioner 2 metal hooks either end of a spring which has a rubber sleeve.

I removed it completely to check it out but their seems to be no difference in the height of the wheel it was attached too.

308D fan belt

Its sorted.

Found a spring tensioner which connected into a wheel, with the top end hooking onto a plastic fitting at the front/top of the engine.

It had a bolt which when undone and withdrawn, allowed the tension spring to be loosened for the belt to be fitted, after which one uses a bar to lever the fitting back up to position and refitting the bolt.

Which motor is in that 308d. I had a 307d in the UK with a 616 and I recently bought a 409d in the US with the 617 motor but I've never looked under the bonnet of the '8' versions. Is it turbocharged?
