To replace the belt on a 2.0 liter engine for the 99.5-2005 models you need a long crescent wrench and a new belt. The tensioner is located near the top left side of the engine inline with the belt. You will notice a square metal piece on top, put the wrench on that, tighten and pull forward. This will release tension on the belt, and using your other hand, grab the belt and remove it from pulleys, it should practically fall off. Now take the new belt and reverse the procedure, making sure you get the grooves aligned properly in all pulleys.
