You should get a book at an auto parts store that will tell you how and what to do, but generally remove the wires and loosen the bolts to take out the belt tension and remove. Also generally auto parts stores can test it to make sure its bad and you don't spend money where you don't need to.

My suburban has a automatic tensioner therefore I need to do is take the tension off with a long wrench and slide the belt from underneath it and replace it with the new one.
