Just the belt if that is all you need. I would replace all the other belts as well. The Water pump pully has to come offYou can visual the pump better at that time. The easiest way to get the pully back on and off is to remove the Power steering resevoir and transaxell mount in fron middle. Jack the engine up as high as you can get it. Put a block under the pan when jacking to spread the push force. this will tilt it back and up so the pulley will stay ion the water pump nub. It is a two piece pully.
