Replacing the belt is quite simple. You will need a 1/2" drive breaker bar. Find the belt tensioner which is aluminum in color. It eill have a 1/2" square hole in it. Place the breaker bar in it and push towards the left to release tension on the belt then remove belt while holding the bar. Install is reverse of removal try to take note as to how the belt is routed over the pulleys.(there should be a diagram under the hood showing the belt routing)

It is not a v-belt but a rib-belt and there are two the a/c rib-velt and the water/power stering/ alternator rib- belt and the way you remove them is to release the two screws atached to the two springs to releave the pressure off the spring therefore reliasing preassure on belt. it is easier if you takeengine fan off, the treade on the fan works the opposite way. not righty tighty but righty lossy.

No...Cracks in the rib part of the belt is normal, but if the ribs of the belt has chunks of them missing or the cracks appear on the flat side of the belt replace the belt.

The supercharger has a single separate serpentine belt than the one for the accessories (alternator, a/c compressor, water pump) . The superchrager belt is a 6 rib 72" effective length. The accessories belt is a 6 rib 93.5" belt.

You need to count the groves not the ribs. And that # will be how many Ribs the belt has. That's the belt you need. They make 2 different grooved belts. a 7 and 8 Are, your pulleys are not lined up and its cutting the belt.
