It is just a matter of removing and replacing the part. Go to the parts store and get the belt you need for your vehicle. When you return, go to this web page


The first pictures are for a timing belt and will not relate to this job. Page down until you see adjusting bolts, AC compressor... Locate the locking bolts as listed and loosen the alt. Install the belt the way it shows in the picture and then adjust the belt (tighten it). It should have a bout 3/4" play back and forth when adjusted.

Let me know if you have a problem.
