Tensioner pulley issue

I recently rear-ended someone in my '91 cherokee. I'm getting it back running again. However the grooved tensioner pulley shattered, and I can't remove whats left of it to put the new one on. It looks like its just held on by a 9mm hex bolt.
I thought maybe the reason I can't get it off is that it's reverse threaded, but I can't find any useful info online about it.

Re: Tensioner pulley issue

Keep it soaked with PB Blaster or similar for a couple days. I have no idea if it's right or left hand threads. Can you get an impact wrench to it? Reverse directions a couple times and see if it lets go. What's the part surrounding it that looks like it might carry some kind of fluid? Heat would be nice but I'd worry about whatever that fluid is.

The part surrounding it is the power steering reservoir. Thats why I don't want to use heat. And I wasn't going to try an impact wrench, because I didn't know if it could strip the bolt.
