SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.

SOURCE: replacing the serpentine belt
Theres not an easy way, i just had to do this on my ZX2. just put a 13mm socket on the tensioner pully, pull down on it to get it to release, remove belt, and then try to place the belt all around everything but the a/c compresser, then pull back down on the tensioner and wrap the belt around the a/c compresser since its right there on the bottom where you are pulling, so you can use one hand on the tensioner and the other to put the final loop around the compressor, if this doesn't work for you, try to wrap it all but around one of the other pulleys. Mine didn't have a diagram, heres one that i made in paintbrush to help you.

use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

this is not a dificult job but it can be alittle teadious. This is straight from the maintainance manual
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked'' all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys. The first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.
