I found on my 92 lumina 3.1 the easiest way to change the belt is to have two people handy (you and a helper) push the belt tensioner (which is more in the middle of the belt system, its the only thing that has give when pressure is applied) down (which will loosen the belt) have your partner slip the belt off the altenator (which should be on the very top of the belt system on the passenger side) and just pay attention to the way the belt is routed as you remove it, put the new one on (routed correctly) push the tensioner again have your partner slip it back over the altenator....and you have a new belt on with no tools :)
just pay good attention to the routing of the belt, and i also think there is a black cover over the belt which needs to be removed before the old belt can be taken off (if you dont see it at first you will find it) it has 3 bolts i think and also a diagram of the routing....
TIP: the tensioner will take some muscle to move down, and yes the belt is running over it....

SOURCE: Serpentine Belt
Generally there is a sticker under the hood, showing belt routing. If not, get a cheap (usually under $20) manual... not only will you learn belt routing, but tips on tensioner adjustment, necessary to replace belt. Even a cheap manual includes lots of stuff you may need to know in the future!

look around under the hood , on the underside of the hood, sometimes the belt routing diagram is on a sticker also check a Chiltons Manual sold at auto pARTS STOReS or on the web

Remove the air filter housing and air hose. Set aside
Pull the 15mm bolt on the tensioner counterclockwise (towards front of car) and hold it there to loosen tension, and remove the serpentine belt.
With your 15mm wrench, unbolt the belt tensioner and remove.
Replace with new tensioner
Put serpentine belt back on.
Very easy! Be careful when releasing tension, becase if you let go of the wrench it will fly back and could hurt you.
