All you need is a long prubar (or you can rent a tensioner wrench at the parts store) essentially a open end wrench with a 3 ft handle.
Put the tensioner wrench on the nub of the tensioner and pull back... this will release the tension on the old belt. Remove it from one of the pulleys, and then from the entire system.
Note how it is routed through the pulleys, and put the new one on the same way.
The car should have a sticker on the radiator support telling you the path of the belt.

you can get step by step instructions from a chilton manual. i go to the library, and copy the page or pages i need. libraries have every chilton auto manuals. may have to rent a specialty tool for belt tensioner pulley. can be rented at any parts store, money is returned when tool is. usually 20 bucks. put tool on tension pulley, pull to loosen belt tension, with other hand slip belt off of alternator or easiest pulley to get to. before you take belt off take a mental picture of belt route. when installing new belt remember if pulley is smooth it contacts smooth side of belt.
