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

SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

2.0L Engines
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.

Serpentine belt replacement is an easily performed operation. <br /> Before you remove old belt(s) - Make a diagram of belt routing. When working in close quarters of the engine compartment it's easy to forget the routing of the belt(s). Save yourself the headache & time and make a diagram of the belt routing. If not, it's like doing a Rubiks' Cube

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.
