Your car should have the serpentine bent (One belt drives

everything). If so you need to find the belt tensioner, it is a

quarter inch drive (use your 1/4 ratchet) stick the the square part

of the driver into the square hole on the tensioner, then simply

lift up on the tentioner, this in turn will loosen the belt, and

you can then take off the old belt. Putting on the new belt is

basically reverse of that, the easiest I found was having it looped

around everything the right way, except the alternator, lift on the

tensioner to get the belt to come around the alternator, after it

is aligned lower the tensioner so the belt is tight.
