Question about Ford Taurus
The belt is held in tension by a speing loaded roller thet is a part of a spring tensioner,
The tensioner needs to be retracted to remove the fension so the belt can be removed.
To remove the tension, you put the proper size socket onto the bolt head that is on the center of the tensioner roller. Attach a breaker bar to the socket and lever the tensioner back to losen the tension on the belt (be careful there is a lot of spring force to deal with )

Starting at the crankshaft pulley, and going clockwise, the belt leaves the crank pulley,
Goes around the tensioner,
Goes around the water pump
Goes around the alternator
Goes around the upper idler
Goes around the Power Steering pump
Goes around the air conditioner pulley
then goes back to the Crank pulley

SOURCE: i need a serpentine belt diagram
Below is a link that should be able to help.
Just choose the make, model, engine. Then in the list that opens there will be a link to a belt diagram. I just went through it so it should work for you.

use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys
