There is a tensioner pulley located at the top of belt.between alternator and Power Steering pump. find hex sided bolt on pulley itself(not the one attached to engine)Place 18mm box wrench (or one that fits)on this bolt. box end side is better but may sit on slight angle.Turn wrench in counter clockwise direction.You will see belt start to loosen.remove belt slowly off alternator pulley.Caution release tensioner very very slowly as it has to go further down into a rest position from where you originally started with the belt on.Failing to take this into account can damage the tensioner pulley itself. To install follow belt diagram on vehicle and reverse above
