Due to the nature of the belt replacement, there isn't much in the way of a service manual procedure. It's a fairly simple job. Let me try and explain as best I can before I provide the actual manual procedure.
Route the new belt around all the pulleys except the top Idler Pulley. Rotate the Tensioner counter-clockwise and then pull up the slack on the belt to install it onto the top idler. Slowly release the tensioner. Do not let the tensioner "snap" back into place, as this can harm the tensioner.
I've wrapped up the repair manual procedure into a PDF file. Download the PDF file here: https://goo.gl/Di42zo
