There in no best way, there is only one way. Pull or pry the idler tensioner pulley back and remove the belt. Reverse the procedure and install it. On some pulleys there is a place to use a ratchet to pry the pulley back. Pay close attention to the routing of the belt. A drawing or digital photo will help you to not get confused as to the routing. Most are controlled by a tensioner arm that is a pully on a spring loaded arm. Most can be turned at the mounting point with a 1/2 inch ratchet. Turn the ratchet like you were trying to loosen a bolt. It's best to have someone hold the ratchet while you pull the belt off one of the pulleys.

How do you replace the air conditioner belt on a 2000 gmc sierra?

1. Make sure that when you purchase a new belt, they don't try to sell you the full size serpentine belt. 2. There is a diagram of the belt routing on your truck when you lift the hood. Follow that. 3. Unfortunately, you need to remove the serpentine belt to replace the air conditioning belt.... the belt routing for the serpentine belt is also shown on the diagram. 4. To remove the serpentine belt, get a ratchet set, and crank the "self tensioning" assembly to release tension on the serpentine belt, and remove the belt. 5. There is another "self tensioning" assembly for the air conditioning belt. Crank to place the new AC belt on and release. 6. Re-install the serpentine belt. This is an easy fix... it took me less than 20 minutes, I'm not a mechanic.
