Yes, it is a fairly simply procedure. I just did my 2000 Grand Am with the V6 and it took under an hour.
1. Support the engine from below with a jack. Need to support it enough to take the tension off the engine mount. I used a bottle jack with a 2x4 across the oil pan.
2. Remove the passenger side engine mount. 4 bolts here.
3. Place a 3/8" ratchet in the square hole in the serpentine belt tensioner. I used a piece of pipe on the handle for a little more leverage.
4. Use the ratchet to release the tension on the belt.
5. Pull the belt off of the various pulleys, remove from engine.
6. Use the routing diagram on the engine to route the new belt. I left the alternator as the last pulley. Use the ratchet again to release the tension. Pop the belt over the alternator pulley. Release the tensioner. Follow the belt around to make sure it is seated on all pulleys.
7. Replace engine mount.
8. Remove engine support.
9. Make sure all tools are out of engine compartment.
10. Start engine.
I will send a diagram in a seperate post ok?

There should be a belt routing guide on a sticker under the hood,usually on the hood it's self of the rad support.If there's none there then the new bel;t should have a picture on the sleave the belt comes in.

I at about 89K on my '04 Jetta TDI and had the same issue. I was due for my 90K service to I took it to the VW dealer. They replaced the power steering pump and belt tensioner. This is the second tensioner that I have replaced this year. Thought the first one went out just because. Now it seems that the power steering pump was the cause. With both fixed, I have no scream and rattle from the engine. You might want to have both checked/replaced on yours. I'll let you know if the noise comes back. Good luck.

You should have a sticker under the hood. My sticker is in the front, next to the hood latch.
It shows you how the belt goes on with & without air cond. on the same sticker.
