I had the same problem. If you have a Power Steering pump, it is attached to an adjuster bracket. Losten the bolt ( 10mm I think) just below the wheel then push the pump down the belt will loosen. For the other belt the alternator has the same thing, but the bolt is on top of the laternator, and you pull the alternator towards the front of the car which will give the belt slack to remove. Replace belts then pull the pump/alternator back in place then tighten bolt.

How many belts are on a 2003 Toyota corolla and when should they be replaced?

Open the hood and count them. They should be replaced when they are worn out. Inspect them for fraying, cracks on the top side, or if they are streatched to the point they cannot be adjusted properly. ************ There is only one serpentine belt on the 9th Generation Corolla, 2003 to 2009 model years, all have the same engine, the 1.8Liter 1ZZ FE and has spring loaded tensioner, the only reason the belt can become 'loose' is the tensioner has become weak or broken. Yes, inspect it, but Toyota has no set mileage interval for replacement. It will last at least 60,000 miles or more. There is an exception to the 9th Generation, the XRS Trim was available for the 2005 and 2006 model years with a High-Performance 2ZZ GE 1.8Liter, but still with a single belt.

Us a 15 mm wrench to release the tension on the serpentine belt and remove it. Jack up the vehicle and support it on jack stands. With a universal joint and a really long extension, remove the 15 mm nut on the back side to the engine bracket. You cannot see the bolt, you just have to feel for it. Pull the old tensioner out and put the new one in. Tighten the 15 mm nut down reinstall the drive belt.

Then lever the tensioner away from the fan with a 15mm spanner and slip the belt over the alternator pulley, that way there's no need for the service position. Refit your air-con belt and your good to go.
