If you are going to do it yourself, the best advice i can give you, is to go to an autoparts store and buy a haynes auto repair manual for your car. it cost about $18 but will be will be worth it. it'll tell you every thing you need to know and has pictures to show you what and where.

I've got an 85 2.5 celebrity and am assuming that your 86 is similar. Most people might think this is a incorrect question, but I've spend hours trying to locate all the bolts to loosen. The alternator belt is straightforward. Loosen the alternator bolt in located in the slider portion and the pivot bolt (15mm on mine). The compressor belt is straightforward. Loosen the two compressor adjustment bolts in the slider slot and the loosen the pivot bolt. This belt will be hard to remove even with the compressor fully pushed down. Take some vitamins. The worse belt by far is the power steering belt. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the power steering "canister". There are two adjustment bolts to loosen from my memory. The one that is easy to find is on the engine side of the power steering canister. The other is hard to see but is located on the pulley side between two of the pulleys. It's also hard to get a wrench on. But, you've got to find and loosen this bolt. I cringe when this belt breaks. Good Luck!!
First remove the engine plastic cover by removing the bolts that hold in. Then loosen the nuts at the front of the AC Belt and Power Steering Belt. Now use a Socket set and loosen these two belts by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise.
You have to remove the first two belts (AC & Power Steering) before reaching the Serpentine Belt.
Now loosen the nut on the front of the lowest pulley before loosening the serpentine belt.
To loosen the serpentine belt, you could either remove the metal skid plate at the bottom of the engine by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise or reach down from the top and loosen it with the socket set ( quick & easiest)
FOR THE 3.0L ENGINE IF YOU REPLACE AC BELT LOOSEN TOP IDLER PULLEY CENTER BOLT. IF YOU REPLACING ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT LOOSEN ALTERNATOR ADJUSTMENT BOLT AND PIVOT BOLT.IF REPLACING POWER STEERING PUMP BELT LOOSEN POWER STEERING PUMP ADJUSTMENT BOLT AND MOUNTING BOLTS.****** FOR THE 2.4L ENGINE TO REMOVE POWER STEERING BELT LOOSEN TOP IDLER PULLEY.FOR ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT LOOSEN ALTERNATOR ADJUSTER BOLT, PIVOT AND MOUNTING BOLTS.FOR AC COMPRESSOR LOOSEN LOWER IDLER PULLEY.
heres a diagram to help you, loosen the bottom bolt a few turns then loosen the top bolt then loosen adjusting bolt to loosen belt, use the adjuster to tighten the new belt then tighten top and bottom bolts, hope this helps,
First is the PS/AC belt. Loosen bolts A, B and C, then use bolt D to adjust the tension.
The alternator appears to be tensioned by leverage - no built-in adjuster. Loosen bolts highlighted in red, and swing bottom of alternator to loosen/tighten the belt. Tightening may require using a prybar to gain sufficient tension - be careful when doing this.
the power steering pump has a seperate adjuster bolt ont the bottom left of the pump if you loosen this off then loosen the pulley bolt it iwill move in to allow for the belt then tighten the adjuster bolt till the tension on the belt only allows for a 1/2 inch movement up or down then tighten pulley bolt
not the pump may be stiff to move at first
