To get the belt off, you have to put a breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner, and either pull up or down. The tensioner spring is what tighten's the belt. It is just three bolts then to get the tensioner off.

Remove the inside door panel. Loosen the tensioner pulley. The belt line will become loose and can be removed. Reverse the process to install the new belt line.
