Use a 6 or 8 inch 1/2 socket extension bar and place it in the top of the tensioner pulley, there is a notch in pulley for this. The tensioner pulley is near the firewall at the top of the engine....make a diagram of the belt routing and note which side( smooth or grooved) is lying on the pulley(usually grooved side of belt). Next you would pull tensioner pulley forward and slip the old belt off....you would route your new belt the same way and slip it on the tensioner pulley last.....you will need to pull the tensioner pulley forward again to get the slack you need to slide the belt over the pulley. I have found the Saab to be one of the easiest cars to change the serpentine belt on. I hope this helps.
