First, Check the belt for cuts or tears. Make certain that there are no cracks or cuts anywhere around the belt. Second, Make certain that the grooves in the pulley's are clean and free of debris. Third, make certain that the mounting brackets for each pully and component are straight and haven't been bent or modified.

Right Here! You find the alternator, disconnect the negative battery cable, find the tensioner for the belt, loosen the tensioner and pull the belt off the alternators pulley.

Put everything back in reverse order and you're done. its very simple, just take your time and dont rush:)
