Basically, Remove the belt. Then remove the bolt that the tensioner pivots on and remove it. It's fairly easy.You may need to remove the belt pulley to make it easier.
The problem comes as your trying to get to it. If you can't see it well or something is in the way. Like the plastic overflow tank or something like that. Then you will need to remove what is keeping you from getting to the tensioner. I did one on a four cylinder last week. The belt pulley on that one had a left hand thread. The tensioner itself should be right hand thread.

If its the same as my GTP, its just under the Supercharger right in the middle of the intake.
Just pull it out, its only held in with a O-ring. When you replace it, make sure you lube the gasket with grease so its easier to put back in, and less likely to nick the O-ring.

If this is an ac car you will need to get the correct belt and retreive a routing diagram from autzone or the manual. sometimes the pulleys are different for ac versus non ac and you may have to remove an idler to run the belt
