Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla
Do you need any special tools to replace belt tensioner pulley on 05 toyota corolla?
A 19mm wrench to release the tension
A 17mm wrench to remove the main mounting bolt
A 12mm wrench to remove the upper tensioner mount.
BE CAREFUL not to break the main mounting bolt(17mm head) it is a long bolt.
If you break it the engine will have to be removed to extract the broken bolt.

you should be able to loosen the alternator and get the belt off and then put the new one on and tighten the alternator back up. check the fuses for the cigarette lighter

Here is your Solution!
You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It has a Large Pulley on a Bracket that Has a Bolt in the Middle and a Smaller Pulley that Goes Under the Belt and Holds Tension on it. You will need to get a Wratchet, Socket, and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt On the Top Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. This will Lower the Smaller Pulley So that you will be Able to Remove the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks! P.S. the link below is for the Belt Routing Diagram.

Your '90 Benz has a belt tensioner that is automatic. You just insert the correct tool to ease the tensioner pulley, (The tool is inserted into the bracket for the tensioner pulley), to the left as you're facing the car. Then slip your serpentine belt off. Reinstallation is a reversal of this process. (I believe it's to the left, don't quote me on that)
The radiator support in front, should have a diagram of how the serpentine belt goes on the pulleys.
If your serpentine belt slips, then the belt tensioner pulley assembly is bad, needs to be replaced, or the serpentine belt itself is worn out.

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

Look at the belt routing (the way the belt runs around all of the pulleys). If you do not find a belt routing diagram under the hood, you'll want to make your own sketch
Find the belt tensioner pulley, usually located just above the crankshaft.
Insert your 19mm ratchet or breaker bar tool into the tensioner bolt head and pull toward the front of the vehicle to release tension on the belt.
Slip the old belt off of the pulleys.
Reference your belt routing diagram to get the new belt seated on all pulleys. Make sure any grooves on the belt rest against grooved pulleys, and that smooth belt surfaces contact smooth pulleys.
Slowly release the tensioner and check for correct belt tension.
Run the engine and observe for flapping or noise, signs of incorrect installation.
