Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. For tensioners equipped with a 1โ„2 in. (13mm) square hole, insert the drive end of a large breaker bar into the hole. Use the breaker bar to pivot the tensioner away from the drive belt. For tensioners not equipped with this hole, use the proper-sized socket and breaker bar (or a large handled wrench) on the tensioner idler pulley center bolt to pivot the tensioner away from the belt. This will loosen the belt sufficiently that it can be pulled off of one or more of the pulleys. It is usually easiest to carefully pull the belt out from underneath the tensioner pulley itself. Once the belt is off one of the pulleys, gently pivot the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to snap back, as this could damage the tensioner's internal parts. Now finish removing the belt from the other pulleys and remove it from the engine

You don't, it has a spring loaded tensioner, If the serpentine belt is loose the tensioner has failed and needs to be replaced

The 1989 Toyota Corolla serpentine belt can be tightened or loosen with the tensioner pulley. Pry to the left on the tensioner pulley until the belt is tight. Tighten the tensioner pulley.

The 1998 Camry did not have a serpentine belt. Do you have a 1998 Corolla?

The way I understand it is I'm not supposed to put a link here. So any parts house will have one, you can go to the library and use the Haynes, Motor, Chilton book, or Google these words "serpentine belt routing diagram Toyota Corolla 2005", or " serpentine belt routing Toyota 1ZZ FE" ..either will work, then when the page appears click 'images' on top

Regardless of what type of vehicle you have, it is extremely difficult to replace a serpentine belt w/o a serpentine un-tension-er tool. This is a thin, long handle with a socket on the end that sticks out at 90 degrees of the handle. The socket slips onto the bolt-head of the tension-er pulley. Once the serpentine belt is threaded around all the other pulleys you put the un-tension-er tool on the tension-er pulley bolt and pull (or push) to achieve slack in the serpentine belt and slip it on the tension-er pulley.

loosen the one or two bolts holding the alternator in place, i believe 14mm, then loosen the 12mm on the adjuster (side) and "screw" the 12mm bolt down to lower the alternator down enough and replace the belt. This is almost the same for every Toyota engine which doesnt use an automatic belt tensioner (serpentine) on the alternator.
