Put an 18mm wrench on the lower tensioner belt and rotate CCW to loosen the tension. Remove the belt from around the alternator pulley, and slowly release the tensioner. Unwrap the belt from all the pulleys and install the new belt following the belt diagram located near the radiator support. ALWAYS make sure the grooved side of the belt is contacting the grooved pulleys, and the smooth side of the belt is contacting the smooth pulleys (Idler pulleys).
