There should either be a whole for a ratchet or there is a nut on the tension pulley that you will have to size a socket to. put either tool on and pull in the direction of up( you'll see what i mean when you get there). be gentle once you have the belt in place not to let it snap back into place so as to not cause any damage anywhere else.

Serpitine belt fell off


This either had a bad tensioner or your belt broke. There are several pulleys and if they start wobbling, almost anything can happen. You should be able to manually grab and rotate each pulley to check for wobble and roughness.

The tensioner is a spring loaded bracket with a pulley.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.

You're approaching 120k miles, and usually a timing belt would be due around every 60k, so you should prepare for that. That's the really comprehensive service that includes a LOT of parts and labor - timing belt, tensioner, accessory belt(s), spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, water pump, thermostat, full inspection, tire rotation, etc.
