There is a belt tensioner wheel below the alternator pulley. Use a long box-end wrench to rotate the nut on the tensioner wheel CCW (as seen from the passenger side of the vehicle). Using a tie-wrap, bungee cord, string or Duct Tape, hold the free end of the wrench (now under tension) by connecting it to any available bolt or metal object in the engine compartment. Now the old belt is loose and you have both hands free to remove the old belt and install the new belt. You may need to use a bright light to see what you are doing and a thin metal yard stick to push the belt around the bottom pulleys. When the belt is in place, free up the wrench and release the tension, then remove the wrench.
