Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


To replace the belt on this vehicle you will have to use a floor jack with a block of wood under the engine oil pan.Then jack up the jack to support the engine putting slight pressure on the wood block.

Then the engine mount can be unbolted and removed,then the tensioner can be released for the drive belt (I believe you can use a 3/8 ratchet in the square hole in the tensioner to relieve the tension and then slide the belt off).

Then the belt can be removed and replaced.

If you need more info on any of this let me know.
