Not sure I understand the question. Can you see the belt? If so, there is a belt tensioner that holds the belt on.

Only pays.8 so I doubt anything has to be removed. Just tight to get to.

For a 2007 Jeep Patriot 2.0 Eng. Forward wheel drive. I unbolted the degassing bottle (coolant reservoir) and moved it aside without disconnecting the coolant line. Its very tight, but with a good tensioner tool/16 mm wrench you can access the tensioner pulley and remove the old belt. It was a bear to first route the new belt and then to get enough leverage (with the wrench) to install a new belt.
I needed a 2nd person to help position the new belt over the last pulley while I struggled with my wrench on the tensioner to be able to get enough slack to finish installing it. If your use to that stuff it shouldn't be a problem just tedious.
