With an 18mm socket and a long handed wrench for leverage this is an easy replacement. Lace the new belt on the drive shaft and lower pulleys like the old one (or by the diagram on the fan shroud), alternator pulley next, then, standing on the drivers side for leverage, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise and fit the new belt to the A/C pulley. Release the tensioner and Bob's your uncle. Make sure you get the correct length belt for your year and pulley configuration (like A/C delete etc.).
