SOURCE: ALTERNATOR BELT
its really really easy to find without diagrams. find the alternator (metallic colour, has cooling fan on front with pulley and 3-4 wires coming off back of it.
then follow the belt. should go to crank (down bottom) and probably power steering or air con as well. hope this helps

The smooth rounded tensioner pulley has a 1/2 inch drive recessed
ratchet drive fitting in the outer side of it. Reach down and feel it
with your fingers and insert the ratchet drive into it. Look around the
underside of the hood and engine bay for a small diagram showing the
belt, pulleys and tensioner.
This pulley is either a slider or a spring loaded pulley. If it is a slider, there will be one or two bolts with "slide" areas that the bolt can move through, and possibly a third bolt that controls the tension. If it is a spring loader, there will be a pulley that looks like it is on a lever. There will be a "bolt" type head, a hole for a ratchet, or a square area on the end of the lever to twist it away from the belt. If it is one of these, the belt tensioner will move relatively easy.
