Sometimes there is just a spring loaded idler wheel.

Right, I'm not sure on your Endeavor, but it should be on or near the belt tensioner. Sometimes there is a nut, sometimes a square hole to put a socket wrench. Then other times you might have to remove the front cover off the pulley to access a bolt to rotate it.
