They have diagrams for the routing of the new belt..
As for actually doing it.
1. you need to release the tension idler to release belt. This can be done with a simple ratchet, its spring loaded so it takes some muscle.
fit the new belt in the correct routing from the website i gave you and there you go.

I've got water shooting out my tail pipe on my 96 Chevy cavelier. There's no water or white smoke any where. What's this mean?

If its real water, it could be condensation which is normal, especially if the air temp is cool and damp.
If its actually coolant, its probably a leaking head gasket.

My battery light is on 2001 chevy cavelier

The battery light is directly connected to the alternator. So, if you continue to run the engine with this light on, it will eventually quit working due to a lack of voltage from the battery.

Please replace the alternator, and recheck for the light.

I suggest that if you are going to do any maintenance on your car that you visit the website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to a full online repair manual for the car. That comes in handy and is a good source for repair information. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
