There's a screw on the right side that you have to loosen that acts as a tension screw. Loosen the nut on the other side first (underside of the jeep). It was pretty difficult to loosen

Has the belt loosened up at all? It's usually easiest to slide it off one of the smooth pulleys.

Post a picture. I'm not sure how the pulley can be off with the tension unchanged.

What model year TJ?

And that the "pulley is off" yet the belt is still tight makes no sense to me at all.
