Question about Cars & Trucks
This is an easy fixya. Take a piece of string or thin rope and tie a small loop in one end. Then wrap it around the two pulleys. Thread the "non-loop" end through the loop and tie it off with a secure square knot so it can't slip out. Remove the string. You can take it to the auto parts store and have them measure it or you can cut the string at the knot and measure from the tip of the loop to the knot yourself. The nice thing about the serpentine for the AC is that it's a simple bolt to adjust the tension. Make sure you have the old belt with you so you can get the correct rib pattern. I just replaced the whole AC in my 2.7L. It took about 2 and a half hrs.

I doubt anyone knows that off the top of their head. You could run a string through the path you want the belt to take and measure how much string it takes. This will give you an approximate length for the belt -- most parts stores could find one close to that size.

On my 2005 Tacoma with the 4.0L V6, I found it easier to change the belt from under the truck. Just remove the skid pan. Plenty of room to install the belt. The tensioner pulley is the one at about 2-o'clock from the crankshaft with the belt nearly all the way around it.
