First put a floor jack under the engine and raise it just high enough to support the engine, do not raise the car.

Secondly, remove the moter mount on the left side of the car.

Using a serpentine tool or a small drive breaker bar (not sure on the drive size, I used a serpentine tool that costed around $9 at a discount tool store) move the tension pulley to release tension on the belt.

Slide the belt off and out, you may have to wrestle with it a bit to get it thru the small opening where you removed the engine mount.

Reverse the steps to install the new belt.
