it is a pain but its not that bad, hardest part is gettin a 1/2 drive onto the tensioner to get the belt on and off then im positive u can get a diagram of the belt and pulleys.

When I did mine it was tough just remembering where to snake it through, I think it took me 30 mins to get the new one in. If you pull up on the old belt real hard you can lock the tensioner up and snake the new belt in, then yank up on the new belt and it will drop the tensioner back down. good luck it is frustrating

they aren't that bad, you don't need to pull up to release, just stand by the fender and grab the belt between the alternator and a/c compressor and pull towards you then lock the tensioner. you don't need to remove the fan or shroud. just remove the air filter and the cac tube on the left side if you feel the need to gain access.
