16mm socket along with a 3/8 braker bar or rachet if the car has a remote starter disconnect battery you will see the belt tensioner holding the belt down you will have to put the rachet on there to pry the tensioner away from the belt make sure fingers stay clear and once you get the tensioner off the belt take the other hand and slide the old belt off the alternator I always save the old belt because the new one snaps now you can put the new one on going backwards from the way you removed the old one

I have a 2001 ford taurus that turns over but wont start, its firing and getting fuel, and the crank sensor is working

Check timing. Belt may have jumped. Aim a timing light at the crank. If the mark jumps around, the belt/chain, has slipped, and will need to be replaced.

Air condition noise

Either the belt tensioner is going bad or the compressor or clutch is going bad. Is the belt tight? Check the deflection in the belt if it is to loose replace the tensioner. Also double check the belt part number and make sure they sold you the correct length belt.
