If you are referring to the accessory drive belt located on the

front of the engine the general procedure is to relieve tension on

the belt by first finding the belt tensioner, then using the

appropriate tool to push it in towards the (usually) center of the

engine and then taking the belt off best way you can. It isn't

really hard to do this. Reinstallation is a little harder. Follow

the diagram which will be located somewhere under the hood, and you

can't go wrong. Of course you will also have to push the tensioner

aside to put the new belt on.
