Best Answer

Insert a ratchet or breaker bar in the belt tensioner and turn it slightly to release the pressure on the belt. Move the belt off the belt tensioner pulley and then release the belt tensioner. The belt should have plenty of slack in it now. Pay attention to the belt routing as you pull out the belt because the new one must go in the same routing. Make sure the belt is back in the proper route and then twist your belt tensioner and put the belt over the tensioner pulley. It should be tight again.
