Actually you don't have to do all of that. I just replaced one from the top. On the passenger side of the engine where the belt is, you will see the tensioner in the middle. Using a larger breaker bar with the socket that fits the bolt in the middle of the wheel, force the tensioner toward the front of the car to release pressure to remove the belt. I think it was a 15mm but can't remember for sure. I do know they are all metric sizes on that engine. The tricky part is to remember how the belt is routed. If you forget, see the diagram below. There isn't much room to work, but I'm proof that it is possible. When putting the new best on, route all pulleys and leave the alternator for last since it's right on top and easy to get to. Good luck and be patient. It's doable.

You need a service and repair manual for that vehicle, about 15 or 20 bucks at any parts store, and some librarys.
