It's a piece of cake..... Using a socket wrench, fit it on the tensioner pulley which is spring loaded. Pulling it back, you loosen the belt and can then slip it off. Look in the enfgine compartment, (I forget exactly where, inside hood, on top of radiator frame etc.) and you'll find the pattern for fitting the serpentine belt around the pulleys. Just slip the new one on easing back the tensioner pulley to allow it to fit over that one last. Release the tensioner pulley and you're all done. (just do a check to see that the belt is sitting equally on all pulleys.)
