Testimonial: "Thanks for rapid response, just had to wait a short while for answer."
If you do not want to do this repair yourself, some of the bigger oil change places offer this service while you sit in your car.
Otherwise you will see 1 pulley which has an arm on it. This arm is spring loaded and puts tension on the belt. It is termed a "Tensioner".
There will be a square hole for a breaker bar somewhere on the fixture. Or there will be a simulated molded nut edge on the fixture for a socket or wrench to attach.
Using either of these to grip the arm, apply counter pressure to make slack in the belt. Now sometimes the easiest way to reinstall the new belt is to use the most accessible pulley as the last pulley to slip the belt over.
This means there is no rule about having to slip the belt on or off from the pulley with the tension arm. Just use the easiest, often this is a pulley which has no grooves on it.
About the grooves, make sure you have the same number of grooves on the new part as the old belt. Sometimes there are engineering changes or sometimes A/C equipped cars have wider belts with more grooves. This is also important to remember when replacing the Alternator or other devices on your car.
I hope my solution is helpful to you.

The serpentine belt routing should be labeled on your radiator shroud. Look around the engine compartment like the hood or radiator fram suport and there should be a label with the the belt routing.
Good luck and hope this helps

See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
