Go to the Google search engine, type in "1996 Oldsmobile Serpintine Belt routing Diagram", and the first row of stuff that pops up has the pictures for all the different engines of that year. Just pick the one that has the same number and location of pulleys as your motor. MAny parts manufacturers also have online help. For example, if you're installing a goodyear belt, visit their website, which is probably listed on the cardboard sleeve the new belt came in.
Is that the one where there's a bolt in the way? If so you have to remove the right front wheel and take nut off that stud and spacer that's in the way, then you need a special socket to remove the stud. The end of the stud is like a "Torx" you need a "E" socket I'm not sure what size. Remove the stud and be careful not to lose the spacer. Then you should be able to remove the belt. For a diagram go to daycoproducts.com, I think you click on, cars & trucks, then belts, then serpentine belts, then on belt routing guide, find your car and get an illistration number, then close out that page and go to belt routing guide illistrations and go to the illistration for your car.

you will need to set the timing up before you take the timing belt of. there will be marks on the pulleys where to line them up. you will need to buy a new timing belt as you can't put the same one on. it is a 13 or 14 ml nut in the middle of the pulley. take the old one off and put the new one on it's as simple as that make sure the timing is set up before you put the new belt one. once belt is on take the spark plugs out and turn bottom or top pulley with a spanner so the engine will turn all the way round freely. sorry better disconnect battery before you do anything and make sure it's not in gear
