Can't say I do exactly, no. Unless it'* as simple as just pulling it off.

I the picture Willwren added, the finger is pointing directly to the tensioner. It'll be a 15mm nut. Using a longer ratchet release the tension and slip the belt off the top pulley aka supercharger pulley. It'* easy.

Thanks for the instructions on how to get it off... now can someone give me instructions to put it back on or is it reverse order? Slip the belt on then tighten the tensioner thing?

Just the reverse. Be sure you have the belt routing correct. The diagram should be around the radiator.

You'll have to move the tensioner pulley by putting a socket wrench on the pulley nut and trying to turn clockwise, moving the pulley and arm it is on. That releases the tension on the belt. You'll have to do that to remove and install the belt.

Tip: When you slip the belt off and on. Don't try and use the tensioner pulley as the one you slide it on and off. The ratchet may be in the way. I usually slide on and off the SC.. Lower belt right where it is.. that way i can look at the routing to ensure it didn't slip off anywhere else and slide it right back on.

Ok so I gave it a try and when I was trying to loosen the nut on the tensioner pulley the whole pulley moved. So I stopped seeing as how I didn't know if that was good or bad. Someone answer that for me? Thanks.

Read this again, the whole pulley and arm it'* attached to should move.
