Just cut it with a utility knife. That is the easiest way. If it is a newer belt and you want to save it, you need a serpentine belt tool to unload the tension on one of the two tension pulleys. Follow the diagram in the engine bay carefully.

If you're asking how to replace the belt, you will have to loosen the fan (the 13mm bolts on the fan clutch, not the 10mm going into the water pump) in order to get a 1/2" drive breaker bar on the belt tensioner. It's also a good idea to remove the right (passenger side - on your left as you're leaning over the radiator!) idler pulley - a single 13mm bolt. Having that pulley out of the way makes it possible to snake the belt down to the A/C compressor. Once the new belt is wound around all the lower components, heave over on that breaker bar (in the belt tensioner) and slip the belt over the top pulley. Now have your buddy push on that breaker bar one last time while you put the idler pulley back in place with the 13mm bolt.

It only takes about five minutes to replace the belt, but it takes 30 minutes to get the fan out of the way and back on.

If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.
