look at the top of where the serpentine belt is located. there is a pulley (called belt tensioner)with a square nipple sticking out the top of it. find a wrench the size of the nipple(via 3/4 or 7/8 etc..)and push towards the back of the car to loosen belt. now remove belt. now line up new belt following the belt route located under the hood. push the tensioner pulley back and pull belt on top pulley, making sure belt is still on all of the other pulleys hint: sometimes you have to take out the inner fender of the front right tire out and put a clamp on the belt and main pulley to hold it in place before you continue installing the rest of the belt.
