there should be a routing diagram right under the hood, if not take a cell phone picture before replacing it so you know how to route it. You will see a tensioner, something that the belt goes accross and normally spins when the engine is running, you will need a 15mm wrench, just stick it on this and pull back, it should relieve the tension on the belt enough for you to remove the belt, you will then have to reverse this procedure to put the new belt on... Should take less than 5 minutes on a V6 because there is plenty of room, if you have a V8 it will be a little tougher

NO! the Montana is a front wheel drive minivan and the firebird is a rear wheel drive, even if they were both rear wheel drive for some reason, the firebird engine would shred the wimpy minivan trans and it would be just wrong to put a minivan trans in a firebird.
