That should be the air conditioning compressor. Other than it being the other side of the engine, the replacement procedure is basically the same. Loosen the compressor pivot bolt and the adjuster bolt to loosen the belt. Pull the belt off. Slip the new belt on and pull on the compressor to tighten the belt. With the belt tight, tighten the adjuster bolt and then the pivot bolt.
