First you locate the tensioner pulley, which is the black plastic pulley below the alternator pulley. Then put a 15MM socket with long breaker bar and turn clockwise as you are facing the motor. It will be hard, there is about 120lbs of pressure on it, but you will move it. Have a helperremove the old belt and immediately follow it with the new belt in the same route. Release the tension, done!
