Pull upon the belt and it will show you which way the idler pulley has to go to relieve pressure on the belt. Then pry it with a 15 mm wrench to relieve pressure and there should be a schematic under the hood to tell you how to route the belt. If it isn't there draw a schematic before you take the belt off. Don't rely on memory.

I put a ratcheting cargo strap on the 15mm wrench and secured the other end so as to pull the tensioner enough to easily slip the belt into place with both hands.
