I found on my 92 lumina 3.1 the easiest way to change the belt is to have two people handy (you and a helper) push the belt tensioner (which is more in the middle of the belt system, its the only thing that has give when pressure is applied) down (which will loosen the belt) have your partner slip the belt off the altenator (which should be on the very top of the belt system on the passenger side) and just pay attention to the way the belt is routed as you remove it, put the new one on (routed correctly) push the tensioner again have your partner slip it back over the altenator....and you have a new belt on with no tools :)
just pay good attention to the routing of the belt, and i also think there is a black cover over the belt which needs to be removed before the old belt can be taken off (if you dont see it at first you will find it) it has 3 bolts i think and also a diagram of the routing....
TIP: the tensioner will take some muscle to move down, and yes the belt is running over it....

Picture is for the carbureted model but has the same patter as my fuel injected model. It's actually pretty easy to see how it goes. If the pully has groves then the grove side of the belt will fit right in it prefectly. If it's smooth then the back side of the belt with run along it. To loosen the belt tensioner do two things. first in the picture below you will see in the top middle you will see the tensioner. The back of the belt runs along it. You will notice that it looks like a solid peice. loosen the top slighty with i believe a 15mm. After that connect to the pully attached to it and pull back to the passenger side until you can slid the belt off the alternator. put back on in reverse order. really really simple once you do it. good luck
