Don't know what year you have but try this:The tensioner is located above the alternator. If you have an 8mm Allen wrench, use it to turn the tensioner arm clockwise with one hand, and remove the drive belt with the other. If you don't have the Allen wrench, use any 15mm wrench instead at the tensioner pulley nut to achieve the same.

How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1999 Isuzu trooper?

pretty easily. 1st draw a picture of how the old one goes on. Next find the spring loaded tension pulley and put a big wrench on it and lean. Your weight will compress to spring and the tension will come off the belt. It helps to have a second pair of hands. When the tension is off have the second pair of hands remove the old belt. weave the new belt through the pulleys and compress the tension pulley and your done.
