Pull out the owners manual for belt routing. I always forget once I take it off. Look for a tensioner. Most belts are all on the same principles.

Default Tensioner

Do I loosen the tensioner and then remove the belt? Is that how it works?

It'* a piece of cake...just make sure you have a piece of paper for the belt routing...

No matter how long I try and memorize...it'* gone after the first belt goes on.
