OK, you need to be careful if you have to ask this. Serpentine belts use a large tensioner.
You can flex this tensioner with a breaker bar and a socket in order to get the belt back on.
After that, the tensioner regulates the belt, no other work needs to be done. Please note.
THE TENSIONER CREATES A GREAT DEAL OF PRESSURE ON THE BELT.
If you get your finger between a pulley and the belt and release the tensioner, you could loose a finger.
A novice mechanic can do a replacement just have someone with you incase you oops.
Here is a YouTube video of replacement. This guy uses a crescent wrench but I prefer a breakerbar.

I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla. About a month ago the alternator went out and I had it replaced. Now there is a rattle coming from the area of the serpentine belt. I replaced belt but the rattle is still...


Have pullies checked out. sounds like one of them may need to be tightend. more than likely it is the tension pully and maybe it needs replaced if the bearing are going out in it. hope this helps and good luck.

    How do i take of a pulley and tensioner of a 94 Dodge Caravan 3.0 L V6


    You'll need a Serpentine Belt Tool and a socket set.

    Rotate the Caravan's serpentine belt tensioner assembly clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt. Slip the belt off the tensioner with your free hand before rotating the tensioner back to its home position. Remove the tool.
    Extract the two mounting bolts that hold the serpentine belt tensioner assembly to the Caravan's front engine cover using your socket set. Depending on your physical size and dexterity, you may find this easier to accomplish through the top of the engine well or through the passenger-side wheel well.
    Pull the old serpentine belt tensioner assembly out of the Caravan's engine bay by hand. Place the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly on the Caravan's front engine cover and bolt it in using your socket set.
    Rotate the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly clockwise with the serpentine belt tool and then place the belt on the pulley by hand. Rotate the new serpentine belt tensioner assembly back into place. Remove the tool and close the hood.

    Replace serpantine belt 2004 malibu


    Get a 1/2" breaker bar and remove tension on belt by rotating the tensioner until belt is loose.

    Remove belt noting the under over method.

    Install new belt. The smooth pulleys have the back of the serpentine belt, and the grooved pulleys have the inside front of the serpentine belt up against it.

    In this way you can reroute any serpentine belt on the market.

    Good luck.
