Hi magkopian, thanks a lot for your comment. There are some different solutions for this problem. On the one side some people redesigned the idler and attached a small lever to help them releasing the pressure from the spring. On the otherside I prefer replacing the spring with a knurled nut or wing nut, so I can fine tune the pressure as well.
