There is a tensioner below the alternator. It has a 3/8" square hole in it for a 3/8" ratchet. You may need to use a cheater pipe.post-10496-13869817659_thumb.jpg post-10496-138698176595_thumb.jpgLooking down from the radiator.

The long thick wire (not going to the engine block, thats the ground) is the one you need to disconnect, it goes to the fuse box in the engine compartment on the drivers side fender. It will be the main fuse (120A). Then disconnect the 2 pcm wires and the ground. The easiest way to put the belt back on is to route it around everywhere it is supposed to go, leaving it under the alternator pulley, then pull the tensioner back and slip it over the alternator pulley (As in the exact opposite of how I took it off in the vid). Don't try and do it some other way as it is 10x easier than any other way. This should help.
