    do you have the tensioner pully all the way back? If not then do that , if you do then mark the gear you need to move to get it on and then slip the belt on and move the pulley back in place, without turning any other's.

Look at the diagram in the manual that shows you the parts that the belt goes round. One will be the tension adjuster. Slacken off the adjuster as much as posible then tighten it in position until you have the belt in place and all your timing marks are lined up. Then slowly untighten the adjuster and set the belt tension as per the manual.
