All serpentine belts have some kind of tension relief pully or mechanism. Buy a $20. repair manual. Relieve the tension as indicated, probably with a ratchet & socket and pull off the belt. You can draw a diagram before you remove it. To slide the new belt on you have to release the tension again, then engage. When putting the belt on it helps to remember that the smooth side of the belt will meet the smooth pulleys, and the track or ridged belt side fits into the ridged pulleys.
