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.
