Question about 2008 Ford Taurus X
Go to allData.com and pull up a manual on this or go to the puiblic library bring some change and photo copy the page from the Chilton Manual on the installation and routing of the belts listed for your particular vehicle/engine size/ power steering....air conditioning.... etc.
Auto Zone Parts Store may even have a print out for you when you purchase the belt replacements from them, they also loan out the needed tools for the job at hand which is pretty cool, usually the tensioner is loosened by means of a long handles wrench able to give maximum leverage on the tensioning device, some vehicles have an illustration under the hood of how the belts are routed, it is not too bad of a job just make sure you take a pic of the serpentine belt and how it is installed on your engine before you take it apart.
Hope this helps!!!

Check this thread, this is the old Taurus.
I also uploaded service pages with routing for Taurus here, unfortunately i do not have Taurus X at hand.
It should work more or less in the same way with your 3.5L 6 cyl engine. Routing will be slightly different, take a snapshot of belt routing before removal.
To remove the pulley use a 15mm socket or wrench on the bolt holding the tensioner pulley.
Depending on engine:
turn the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and then take the belt off the pulleys.
Turn the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve tension, then take off the belt.r
Turn belt tensioner and remove the belt from around one of the pulleys once tension is released.
there is a special tool to do the job. The replacement can be done without using Ford tool.
