LOL.....Thanks .....on my drawing...see that square piece, at the end of that is a round part, you have a 3/8 or 1/2 inch hole a ratchet end will fit in and you push down, need like a breaker bar, they sell a actual one , but I used a breaker bar 18" long. couple pics taken from different angles, see the square slot where rachet goes in?

Put a big ratchet on the tensioner and pull/push it till the belt slacks alittle and you can slip it off.

Put new belt on in same fashion, then pull/push tensioner again so you can slip the belt onto it.

There is a diagram on your engine catalyst for this aswell

This may sound like a dumb question, but is the drive belt and the serpentine belt the same thing???
