You don't...I mean you can't adjust the serpentine belt because there is automatic self tensioner which loaded by a very high compression spring. Now, there should be a square hole on the tensioner which is a 1/2 inch. You simply put a half inch breaker bar in the square hole to gain leverage in order to change your belt. Hopefully this helps
for the most part there is a diagram under the hood showing you how the belt goes back on what i do is draw me a diagram before i take the old off and if you have a autozone near you they will print you one off for free if you do not have one under the hood.
This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood

To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
