What is problem? Fan belt is adjusted by the alternator, and goes from crankshaft pulley , to water pump, to alternator.

Bucket is raised and locked into the lock position. The you can access the engine and pulleys. Loosen the alternator, and release the belt, then work it around the fan and crank pulley.

Earlier models had hydraulic pump driven off the crankshaft, and on those, you had to remove the pump drive, or hydraulic hoses and work belt over the pump!
