SOURCE: How to tension a serpentine belt
It sounds like you have an auto tensioner. There is a square hole in the bracket the tensioner is mounted on. Put a breaker-bar drive or ratchet-drive (3/8 or 1/2) in that hole -- this will allow you to move the tensioner so you can get the belt around the water pump.

The tensioner is a spring loaded unit that is supposed to provide the proper tension on the belt with out adjustments. Ususally if a tensioner goes bad it is not providing presure on the serpentine belt (loose belt, squeel, or squeek) or it has a bad bearing in the tensioner pulley (noisy, siezed). The tensioners are sold as an assembly in either case. If the tensioner went bad it is a good idea to replace the serpentine belt at the same time.

pop the hood and look behind head light and you will see the nuts holding the lens in pull those and the lense should just slide right out

I dont know the exact method on this car but on most cars if you open the boot/ trunk it has little compartments near the lights on the inside of the car, if you pop those open you gan get to the bulbs and probly un screw the light unit it self. sorry if its no help.
