How do Remove a drive belt from a 99 escort?

On top of the engine there is a serpentine belt (5 grooves). The tension is autmatically set by the belt tensioner. It is an arm with a pulley on the end of it. The other end has a 3/8 inch connector for a ratchet. Put a ratchet on the end of it and pull it towards you. This should relieve the tension enough to take the belt off the pulleys.
