NOTE: Be sure that the belt routing diagram is in place (usually near the radiator). This exhibits how you'll route the belt around the pulleys. If you don't have this diagram, be sure that you note how it is routed before removing the OLD belt!
Step 2: Loosen the belt tensioner pulley using the 15mm socket/ratchet. Turn the tensioner bolt CLOCKWISE.
Step 3: Once loosened, you can remove the serpentine belt from the vehicle.
Step 4: Using the routing diagram, move the serpentine belt into position. Once you have it in place, tighten the 15mm tensioner bolt.
NOTE: The belt should be taut, but not overly tight!
