The question you ask is tooinvolved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get arepair manual for your car.They cost about $16.00Or, go to a Public Library.

First plan on about 1 hour to change the belts, you will need a tire wrench, jack & jack stands or a ramp, 10 mm wrench, Phillips head screwdriver, 12 mm & 13 mm sockets.

Jack the car up on the passenger side, use a jack stand and block the rear wheels. Remove the passenger side front wheel, remove the inner shield (4 Phillips head screws), working from under the car loosen the tension wheel nut and adjusting bolt, this will allow you to remove the a/c belt.

Next workin on top, loosen the top & bottom bolts on the alternator, then loosen the adjustment bolt. It will take some work to remove the serpentine belt, there is tight fit between the rear most pully and the inner fender.

Reverse steps, it might be helpful to have a friend to thread the new belt on.
