Default Changing the serpentine belt

I have a '95 SSE, is there any way to change the serpentine belt without removing the engine mounts? I need a new belt, but don't really have the tools to takeoff the mounts.

Default Belt

I have changed thousands serpentine belts and have never had to remove an engine mount. The routing diagram is under the hood on the crossmember. All you need is a wrench or socket to pull back the tensioner. The easiest way to do it is to leave the idler pully last (the one on the engine with no teeth). That way you don't have to try an squeeze the belt over the pully edges. You will know what I mean.

Series II requires the removal of the mount (not totally, just a partial.....while supporting the engine).

Series I does not.
