This is an easy job. There is a small spring-loaded idler pulley that maintains the proper tension on the belt. To remove the belt, you must first relieve tension on this pulley. Do this by inserting a � drive ratchet or breaker bar into the center of the idler pulley and apply enough pressure to slip the belt off. Before removing, pay close attention to how the belt snakes around all the pulleys. There should be a diagram in the engine compartment, near the hood latch. If not, sketch it before removing the belt. Reinstall the belt in accordance with the diagram. It is easier if you do the idler pulley last.
