You should have a belt routing guide on the radiator support of the vehicle when you open the hood, somewhere around the hood latch. You will notice a spring tensioner pulley under the alternator, you can use a socket or a wrench to remove the belt, turn the tensioner clockwise to take the tension off the belt to remove the belt. You do not need to remove anything other than the belt. Can be removed with fan shroud in place. Notice the belt routing guide while reinstalling. To install route the belt as in belt routing diagram, the tensioner will be the last pulley to put the belt over.

Its a little easier to put the belt on the alternator last. Usually the wrench or socket gets in the way of trying to put the belt on the tensioner last.
