This is a fairly simple repair. Look around under the hood of your car for a "belt routing diagram." It's usually on the passenger side of the car. Use this to know how to route the belt when you replace it. Also, on this little diagram, there should be a picture of a pulley marked, "tensioner." Use this to locate your belt tensioner pulley. It should be a black pulley held in place by a metal arm. There is a bolt, going through the pulley. I believe it's 15mm. If you place a wrench on this bolt, you can use the wrench to create leverage, to move the tensioner. I belive it moves towards the front of the car. But, use this to relive pressure from your belt to remove it. Then, consult your diagram again to reroute your new belt. It's easiest to wrap the belt around all of the pulleys, except for the alternator pulley. Then, muscle back your tensioner pulley again, and flip the belt over the alternator pulley. You should be good from there. Before you start your car. Make sure the belt is seated well on all of your pulleys. Start the car. Let it idle for a minute or two. Keep your hands and tools clear of the moving belt, and look to see that the belt is moving well in it's path. Shut the car off, and check to see that the belt is seated well once more, and your done.
